Santarpio's Pizza

111 Chelsea St. (at Porter St.), East Boston, MA - (617) 567-9871
Arriving on battered metal trays carried by a staff of take-no-prisoners waitresses (who are as efficient as they are brusque), Santarpio's thin-crust pizzas are a joy. The outer rim is a balance of bready crunch and chew, featuring an occasional blistered-black spot from the oven; and while the inside of the circle tends to soften and become unwieldy under a lot of toppings – leading to the heartbreak of cheese slippage – even the flexible part of the crust has a taste that makes you want to keep on eating, then ordering more.

Santarpio's superb Neapolitan crust, teetering on burnt at its edges, is crisp enough to audibly crunch when bitten.

A bar-b-q combo plate: pork sausage and lamb chunks with hot cherry peppers and a length of Italian bread. Beer is not included in the price, but is highly recommended.

This cheese, sausage and garlic pizza has a nice little kick to it.

Skewered lamb cooks over coals at the front of the bar room.

A rare scene....get here around 3pm to have the bar to yourself and avoid the post 5pm lines.

This huge billboard on top of Santarpio's is easily visible to motorists on the highway and presumably, pilots landing at nearby Logan airport.
