2012 BEST Pizza

Santarpio’s

For a pizza joint, this Eastie institution has more than its fair share of character—thick Boston accents, a Sinatra-loaded jukebox, and rough (yet deep down, totally lovable) servers. And then there’s the pizza itself: a crunchy, cornmeal-dusted affair slathered with gooey, sweet-sauced cheese and topped with delicacies like house-made sausage, all of it positively begging for a Bud Light or cheap wine chaser. And if you’re too impatient to wait for a sit-down meal, the anything-but-ordinary cheese pie is pretty fantastic straight out of the to-go box.
