Dear PIZZERIA REGINA: thank you for saving Allston from dozens of mediocre-to-bad pizza shops. For too long we've had to settle for pies that look great but taste like soggy Hot Pockets. You've been a North End staple since 1926, and we're grateful that you brought your mastery of chicken parmesan, baked penne puttanesca, and sausage cacciatore pizza to our little corner of Greater Boston. Sincerely, Allston.
