Best of Boston

2010 Best South Boston Restaurant, Neighborhood

St. Alphonzo’s Kitchen

The best local spots offer more than just a good dinner at a fair price; they also provide a window into the neighborhood. At St. Alphonzo’s, the shoebox of a dining room feels like a private gathering of Southie characters. But the calamari, pasta Bolognese, and Cuban sandwich are far better than you’ll find at any dinner party.
