Best of Boston

2011 BEST Porter Square Restaurant, Casual


This place draws neighborhood dwellers in search of a midweek bite or a Saturday evening glass of wine with their pizza. Owners and sisters Carla and Christine Pallotta have created a welcoming atmosphere for locals (they know ? or make an effort to know ? everyone in the ‘hood), and put out great food, too: tiny, tender gnocchi; small but zippy Neapolitan-style margherita pies. There’s also a solid lineup of wines by the glass.
