Best of Boston 2011: Bowling Alley
Sacco's Bowl Haven
45 Day St.
Somerville, Massachusetts 02144
There are flashier lanes in town — theme park-like emporiums with flat-screen TVs and signature cocktails. But the laid-back atmosphere of Sacco’s wins it top honors. It’s complete throwback awesomeness, from the candlepin setup to the pencil-and-paper mode of scorekeeping. If there’s a wait, grab a seat at the bar, order a Flatbread Company pizza and a Pretty Things pint, and kick back.
