2018 Best Bowling Alley

Sacco’s Bowl Haven

The pizza may be organic and the beers local at this historical candlepin bowling alley, which was taken over by the Flatbread Company in 2010, but the vibe is old-school Somerville at its finest. In fact, there isn’t another bowling alley around with this much soul, even in a state full of them. Will it take a while to get your turn at a lane? You bet. But noshing on a crispy-chewy flatbread with homemade sausage and caramelized onions while crushing a Jack’s Abby lager hardly feels like waiting at all.
