The local favorite (Usher’s too, apparently) has already seen its fair share of fame after winning various best-of-Boston pizza lists over the years. Santarpio's, which opened in 1903, sticks to their traditional roots when it comes to the infamous slightly chewy and satisfyingly wet slices. Their menu consists of a variety of options, but includes a list of customers' favorite combos, like a pie that pairs sausage with garlic, ground beef, and onions, and even "The Works": mushrooms, onions, peppers, garlic, sausage, pepperoni, extra cheese, and anchovies. First-timer? Order Santarpio’s most popular pie — mozzarella, sausage, and garlic — to establish a baseline.

Andrew Zimmern stopped by this family-owned restaurant and local favorite. He tried pizza and the grilled combo, which includes a grilled lamb skewer, grilled sausage skewer, bread and peppers.

Nothing goes better with a pie than a carafe of the house red wine.

Santarpio's in Eastie is the place to go to shut up your obnoxious New York friends when they claim there's no good pizza in Boston. [Eater 38 Member]

Established in 1903, Santarpio's is probably East Boston's most famous restaurant. With delicious traditional pizza and a friendly, family-feeling atmosphere, you really can't go wrong.

They don't do slices. You have to buy pies at a time.
