    Re: Your favorite pizza pie in Greater Boston?

    Santarpios is the worst and I speak from experience.  In the 80's it was good, but has been downhill from there.  I have gone a few times in the past 5 years and it is always awful.  I have a friend who loves it, so I am stuck being nice and going with her occastionaly.  I think the people like me who remember when it WAS the best are the ones who hate it now.  Newbies think it is great, just don't know any better.  Way over rated.  I still love Brown Jug in Chelsea and Nana's in Everett

    That's a shame.  Last time I was there was 1990, and it was, as everyone has raved, awesome.  Why does everything seem to go that way eventually?  :(

    Presto's in Cleveland Circle is my favorite in the Boston area.

    My favorite of all time, the only place I could eat a whole pizza, the place I grew up going to and where my mother worked when she was in high school: Family Pizza in Leominster.
    They even have these coupons on the box, order 10 pizzas, get one free. I remember my mom cutting those out and saving them when I was little. Makes me smile when I'm at my dad's and I see some bundled together in a rubber band on the counter.

    I know what you mean Kar.  When I moved from the South Shore to the North Shore, where I grew up, I couldn't wait to take my daughter to Kelly's on Revere Beach for their clams.  So off we go one day and it was terrible.  Extremely expensive but mostly strips, hardly any belly's with the clams.  I remember Kelly's was so good because you always got the bellies, which to me is the clam. My daughter still thought it was good, but I was really dissapointed.  Now I know what my mother meant when she said things never stay the same : )

    Say it isn't so!! Kelly's prided themselves on only serving whole clams.  I asked one time if they were whole or strips, and they were offended.  That was back in the early 90s.  Too bad.

    Yeah, things change.  :(

    Love the coupon story, Pinkie.

     ..Santarpio's is good. NOT GREAT!. Their Pizza is grossly overrated.

     ...I would not say T' Anthony's Pizza on Comm. Ave across from BU is one of the best pie's in the city, but it should be up near the top of any "Best Pizza" diccussion in Boston. I've been to about 50% of the Pizza joints on this Boston.com poll and T'Anthoney's is better than all of them. Some of the places' mention in Cambridge do not even look like Pizza. ..No sauce, weird cheese and spinach!?!?! . I also like Presto's in Cleveland Circle and Dions pizzeria in Brookline Village. But if i could have pizza only one more or last time i would go to Pizzeria Regina in the N.End. It is the best in this city.

    I don't know if the Cape counts as 'Greater Boston" but Paul's Pizza and Seafood in Falmouth, MA. serves up the most addictive pizzas on the Cape.  Very busy during the summer but well worth the wait.

    Uno's has WONDERFUL Chicago-style deep dish pizza. I'm shocked that it wasn't mentioned. Yes, it's high-cal but eating it once a month is heaven.

    Lists like these are read by people hoping for a surprise. The surprise is City Slickers in Somerville. All the pizzas are exceptional, however...I am going to whisper this to you and it is going to change a few things for you...try the bolognese pizza. It may take 6 months to a year to eventually try the other kinds...and you will need to prepare for the Pavlovian response when your thoughts turn to this pizza (and they will). I would put a City Slickers bolognese up against the best of whatever New York has to offer and have ourselves a little taste test.

    Well, the caps are annoying, but it's true that if you live in the Lowell area, Espresso Pizza, with it's sweet sauce stands alone as the best in town.  

    However, if you live in the Lowell area, you also know that the famed Tony and Ann's Pizza is said to be re-opening again after being closed for 7 years.   And when Tony and Ann's re-opens it will again claim the number one spot in the Lowell area.    With it's truly unique flavor (super sweet sauce) Tony and Ann's is a one of a kind.

    Paul's Pizza is a GREAT example of the bar pie... it is what Town Spa in Stoughton used to be.  Another place that serves a great bar pie is the Cape Cod Cafe' in Brockton.

    [QUOTE]Why is there such a rage for thin crust?  Unfortunately this article reflects the lack of good thick crust pizza in this town.  Best pizza ever is still the DC based Armands.  I only wish that someone would break out of the Atkins Diet crazed cracker pizza mold. 
    Posted by CDB71[/QUOTE]

    Because this is New England, not Chicago.  You can keep Uno's... I'll stick with thin crust!

    BTW, the best pizza in the world is at Pepe's Pizzeria in New Haven, CT.  Yes, it's worth the drive down 95!

    Franca's Pizza on Felton Street in Waltham makes a great pizza (not to be confused with Franco's Pizza in Waltham, which is on Moody Street).  Our favorite is the ricotta cheese, meatball and mushroom pie.  Yes, it's a fat bomb, but enjoyed once in a while, it makes you appreciate good pizza (everything in moderation).  Dominic's Bakery in Waltham makes a great "Sicilian-style" (thick crust) pizza.  The Common Cafe in Quincy makes a delicious pie with grilled chicken, roasted peppers and a little pesto sauce.

    For high-end "chain restaurant" pizza, the Sporkie at Bertucci's is great.  It has ricotta cheese and sausage.  I like ricotta cheese on pizza for the richness and contrasting texture; it also helps offset the acidity of the tomato sauce.

    And while pizza snobs may look down on it, a really good "ultra commercial chain" pizza is a plain cheese and tomato pie from Papa Gino's.  It has a nice, old-fashioned pizzeria taste and a good crust.
     
    Jeez, I now want pizza and all I have for lunch is a damn tuna sandwich!

    Re: Your favorite pizza pie in Greater Boston?

    Pizza, like all foods, is a matter of personal preference. What I noticed on this website is that the author thinks that thin crust and very little cheese is "authentic", but other styles, not so much. Paper thin crust is all the rage for snobby foodies, but I don't see the fascination with it. Regina is not on my list of good pizzas. They have terrible consistency. A few times, the ingredients resembled soup in the middle of the pie - very sloppy and mushy. What makes a pizza good is not that it's "authentic", it's how it tastes.

    Greater Boston is 20 miles out.  With that definition, Lynwood Cafe in Randolph is the hands-down winner.  $6 for a bar-room style pizza.  The only knock is on weekends you can wait up to 2 hours between calling in the order and getting pizza.
    South of Boston the Nutty Irishman in East Bridgewater is fantastic.

    I think Somerville has some real solid pizza places.

    Mama Lisa's & Leone's has to be the best 1-2 punch that close to each other in the world. Throw a real solid La Hacienda, and Somerville brings it.

    The old DiPasquale Bros on Main St. in Medford, which now has a different name, is real good too.
