Although there's no Famous Rays in Harvard Square, there are enough varieties of pizza to keep even the most addicted happy. Ranging from the inexpensive snack fare to a hearty meal, the choices are almost all above average and reasonably priced.
Bel Canto (928 Mass, Ave.): Deep-dish pizza, a variety of other entrees, salad and desserts, complete with civilized atmosphere, Cafe Avventura (The Garage): The newest of the bunch, Avventura is probably also the best, Thin-crust, with a perfect tomato-cheese balance, it's widely considered the best deal in the Square. Pizzeria Regina (4-10 Holyoke ST.): Before there was Avventura, Regina's thin-crust had no competition. The downstairs dining room sports friendly booths, pitchers of beer, and a lively atmosphere. Pizzeria Uno (22 JFK St.): If you've never had deep-dish (Chicago-style)pizza, you're in for a treat. Don't let the small pies fool you: two slices are a meal and a good one at that, Pleasant, real restaurant atmosphere, with down-to-earth prices make Uno's pizza one of the most popular in the area. Pinnchio's (74 Winthrop St.). Mostly take-out, with fast service, Pinnochio's is inexpensive and that's as it should be. Three Aces (1613 Mass, Ave.): A staple of Quadlings, Three Aces offers thick crusted, cheesy pizza, no frills, Video games, too, while you wait.
