Steve,  reginas is a must try.  Santarpios is worth it as well,  I've had some great pies there,  they also make a sausage there,  and serve lamb kabobs too,  cooked over wood or charcoal I forget.  Very good if you are into that stuff.  Have not been to emmas.  BTW I think both pizza places only take cash,  which can catch people off gaurd,  and expect a wait at reginas,  or try to sneak through after lunch ,  before dinnertime.   As peter said,  PICCO is very good too.  Have fun.  -marc

Picco's - Very good, met Rick (the owner) and we talked pizza. His dough is aged for three days then cooked in a gas oven... very nice charred crust, very good pizza. Will be going back again before I leave Boston on Friday.

Regina's - Had their "mall" pizza at Fanueil Hall Market, it was fair. Then stopped by their small pizzeria in the North End (Little Italy) which was much better. While very good (and worth the trip), but I think Picco's is better.

Still a few days left... will try to sample some more pizza before I head home.

im jumping in late here, but if you have time try to hit either of the New York pizzas.  There is one on mass ave in the south end and one on tremont st in the theater district. They are both within a 5 minute drive from Picco.  Its not fancy like Picco but I think its Bostons best traditional NY style pizza and its sold by the slice.  I think it would be worth hitting before or after Picco, or even in place of it.   

Have fun in Boston!
