*****kc from West Roxbury, MA says:
Can't tell you how long we've been going here. Never had a bad meal, and the pizza is still fantastic, as good as it was 40 years ago!! And so are the PLEASANT!

*****John and Mary Perelli from South Windsor, CT say:
My wife and I drop in every time we're in town. All the old Perellis are gone now. I'm an old Perelli, 66, Tom Dowd of West Roxbury sent me the retirement write up about Uncle Georgie retiring years ago. The last time I saw him was around 1980, 3 years after my mom died, so long ago. I don't visit up there much anymore because all the old folks have passed on, no need to go there anymore. I will stop by some day to say hello to Linda/Sherril who live in Danny's and Ruth's old house. Ok, keep the pizzas coming, see you in the future.

*****David from Hyde Park, MA says:
Love the restaurant. Pizza is great and they don't skimp on the toppings. Waitresses are great. Best buy is the pork chop. Outstanding fish cakes when they have them. Unbelievable.

*****Suldog from Watertown, MA says:
The Pleasant is one of my all-time favorite restaurants. I've been going there, off and on, for 45 years. (My grandparents used to live in the housing project nearby, so my parents and I would often eat there after a visit. I've kept going since I enjoyed it so much as a child.)
Fantastic pizza, perhaps the best in Boston. I would also recommend the spaghetti with meat sauce. Superb classic red sauce.

*****bl from Mansfield, MA says:
I grew up in W Roxbury and every time I get in this section of town, I drag anyone who is with me to the Pleasant for some of the best Pizza and food around. I love their Sausage Pizza and the onion rings are killer, my wife loves the Veal Parm. You cannot go wrong here; great food, low prices.

Beth from Roslindale says:
The Pleasant is a casual Italian restaurant that I have been going to for years. The pizza is the best in all of Boston - thin crust, homemade dough and sauce - simply put - AMAZING. You cannot go wrong. But try their Seafood, Prime Rib and Chicken Parm. You will not be disappointed.
