Topping the list is Pizzeria 260. Located at 260 W. Broadway (between Linsky Barry Court and D Street) in South Boston, the Italian spot, which offers pizza and salads, is the highest-rated low-priced pizza spot in Boston, boasting four stars out of 73 reviews on Yelp.

If you're curious for more, we found these details about Pizzeria 260.

"We started out late 2013," according to the history section of its Yelp profile. "Earning your business was not an easy task, but we persevered and succeeded with a consistent combination of fresh ingredients, great quality and service. We strive to meet your high expectations."

The business is known for, "Italian-style, thin-crust pizza made fresh daily and hand-stretched to your selection," it writes on Yelp in the section explaining specialties. It also offers salads, calzones, wraps, grinders and more.

2. Galleria Umberto

Next up is North End's Galleria Umberto, situated at 289 Hanover St. (between Wesley and Lathrop places). With 4.5 stars out of 631 reviews on Yelp, the Italian spot, which offers pizza and more, has proved to be a local favorite for those looking for an affordable option. 

Yelper Payam Z., who reviewed the business on Dec. 6, wrote, "Everything is made fresh daily and there are no substitutions, featured items or surprises of any kind. One type of Sicilian style cheese pizza is served by the slice ($2 apiece, cash only.) There are a handful of other menu options, of which the arancini is certainly the crown jewel."

Jim T. noted, "They had arancini, pizzette, paninis and panzarotti as well — all cheap prices. The staff is excellent and they move very fast, it's just that there were two guys doing the counter for an endless line."

3. DaCoopas Pizza and Subs
