I love the pizza but I also of the pasta dishes. Everything here is really good, and don't forget to add dessert! The food is really affordable as well.

I have eaten at this family friendly restaurant more times than I can count and every time is a "pleasant" experience. The food is really good. My favorite is the prime rib that matches for flavour, texture, and taste what I have been served at the 4 Seasons and the Top of the Hub and other fine restaurants! No exaggeration!... More

Literally have never been disappointed by the pizza here! This place has been around for ever, and for good reason!! When I moved to Roslindale my mother had told me (who grew up in Dedham) about it and that I had to go. I've gone a bunch of times since moving here. If you're looking for good quality pizza this...

If your in the mood for great pizza, go to Pleasant! I've been going to Pleasant Cafe for over 15 years. This is very much a neighborhood, family restaurant. Most of the dining room staff has been there for years and they make you feel like family. They try really hard to accommodate starving, unhappy children as quickly as possible,... More

I have being going to the Pleasant for over 40 years and have enjoyed every meal. The pizza can't be beat. The seafood dishes are always perfectly cooked and are as good as the more upscale restaurants in Downtown Boston. Waitresses are extremely friendly and provide prompt service. Going there is a part of my weekly Friday night routine. Thanks... More
