Oh how I missed the food at CPK! Always have had the best pizzas and great varieties. I had the Hawaiian and it was terrific. I always make sure when I am in the area of CPK, I always stop in.

A good enough place to stop for lunch or dinner. Food high quality but overpriced. No personal size pizzas for lunch or dinner.

Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the
heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and
the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable
skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock
