Allston has an interesting mix of long term residents who’ve called Allston home for many years and a student population that ebbs and flows with the college year.
La Befana isn’t part of a chain that chooses its location based on shareholder’s values or a corporate office management located on the other side of the U.S. who in a whim can decide to shut down its operation in a location without blinking an eye.
To be sure La Befana Pizzeria is a business and needs to make a profit but we have a little more skin in the game than corporate pizzerias. Allston is our only home and so we can’t afford to lose this one – we succeed or die! So we go out of our way to understand what our neighborhood customers want and do our best to deliver. We take pride in being part of the Allston business scene and seeing the same folks return regularly and knowing people see us as part of their community.
We like to think of our pizzas as reflecting many of the qualities and diversity a community like Allston provides as a Boston neighborhood.
Just like Allston housing which ranges from multi-family Victorian homes in Lower Allston to triple-deckers towards Brighton our menu features classics such as the Marghereta pizza to the piled high Mighty Meatlover pizza.
Allston is named after the American painter and poet Washington Allston and although we haven’t named any pizzas yet after Boston natives we do have our El Sid, and George Lembo’s Favorite and Jackson’s Chicken BBQ – one of our team favorites!
Although Allston is considered a neighborhood of Boston and often referred to as Allston-Brighton it has a diverse ethnic background including folks from Russia, East and South Asia, Brazil and Columbia and likewise we have pizza flavors showing different origins such as the Aztec, Five-O and Hibernian pizzas.
There are many busy and thriving sections of Allston serving its 21,000+ population and where we are located at 15 N. Beacon St near Cambridge Street we’re intending to carve out our own pocket of a thriving community. Come and join us here or order online here or call us for delivery or curbside pickup.
And let us know by leaving a comment at our web site how we can better serve you as your Allston Pizza community.
