Since 1903, Santarpio's has been the place that Bostonians recommend when asked for the best pizza place in the city.
This is the spot where you forego both niceties and toppings to silently snarf the best cheese pizza in town. The gas and toll money is more than worth spending to reach this Eastie centenarian mainstay, which started as a bakery in 1903 and serves barbecued lamb and steak skewers in addition to pizza. Bonus points for the inimitable people-watching and the $5 glasses of wine.
