Best of Boston 2010: Neighborhood Restaurant, South End
433 Columbus Ave.
Boston, Massachusetts 02116
While many local restaurants have adopted upscale comfort food of late, Anchovies has always been both low-key and low-priced. Neighbors inhale the giant plates of pasta and hearty pizzas, along with their infamous "Italian nachos." It's easy to get in and out for just $20 bucks a person (including a martini), making it a true weeknight joint. RUNNER-UP Coda
