Santarpio's Pizza

Venue Info

Known For

Pizza

Santarpio's Pizza has been around since 1903, so when we say “old-school,” we mean it. Much to the dismay of certain Bostonians, Santarpio’s is known primarily for its New York-style pizza, which is served with heaps of melted “Italian cheese” and can be customized to your taste buds’ content with vegetable and meat toppings. But Santarpio’s isn’t a one-hit wonder; it also offers skewers of lamb, steak tips, and sausage barbecued to savory and crispy perfection. The East Boston location is cash-only, so spare yourself a Santarpio scolding delivered from one of the notoriously cranky servers and head to the ATM beforehand.
