Best of Boston

2005 Best Al Fresco Restaurant, Affordable


Croma’s patio provides the perfect portion of sun to shade—not to mention delectable thin-crust pizza and fruity cocktails—for everyone from hipsters to stroller-toting moms. The staff is amiable, and the wait for a table is usually short—which means less time loitering and more time soaking up rays.
