So tired of the Umberto's Love.....

Nice people, check. Cool place to eat, check. Cheap, check...

Pizza is just so substandard, even for the so called "grandma slice" they serve. Was there last week. Soggy mess, cold, cold pizza. Gummy rice balls, ultra-lame calzones (calzones have riccota cheese within). This isn't an institution but rather a place more like a high school cafeteria. It doesn't even belong in the "pizza conversation". I've lurked around here long enough to know this is heresy, so have at it. i think there is a difference between institution and institutional.... Better slice (but still not great) at the Royal Bakery in Cambridge on Cambridge St. 10 other places I'd go for a slice before Umbertos, maybe 15....
