Best Traditional Pizza
Bostonians love their pizza and Santarpios makes what is widely considered the tastiest pizza pie.
Established in 1903 and inducted into Boston's Hall of fame, the family owned business is considered by some pizza connoisseurs to make the best pizza in the world!
Our pizza order ended up getting messed up at a different place so we ended up here and so glad we did! The pizza is authentic and the toppings are generous. The servers are really great and willing to help. The atmosphere is lively and busy and we really enjoyed our pizza here. Will be back next time in town!
Alright pizza, It's great pizza, but cooked like it was 1930s, witch is why I went if your picking up what I'm putting down! Its a experience. The oldest pizza place I have ever been to, they have tons of boxing gloves and other stuff from other famous people everywhere. The staff are nice, but if someone were to ask for on pineapple on there pizza, they will not even acknowledge that your in there pizza place. When you go there, understand that they take pizza extremely seriously, and you should not complain.
Very know place, customer service isn't at the same level as it's history.
Slow but worth the wait
I grew up in Connecticut and always considered Pepe’s the best pizza I’ve ever eaten, and that is still true. Santarpio’s, however, is a very very close second. You can argue all day which is better but Santarpio’s has something I found surprising. Wonderfully surprising! They have just one bother item on the menu, steak tips! In a pizzeria? Yes, and they are fantastic! Cooked over an open flame to perfection! They are served with crunchy Italian bread and hot peppers. If you don’t want to go for the pizza go for the steak tips! They are better than any steak restaurant I’ve eaten in!!
I’ll be back for the pizza and especially those steak tips!
By the way this is a no nonsense
place and the servers do not coddle customers so look at the menu, decide what you want and order! One member of our party had a glass of wine served in a water/milk glass! I loved that! No frills just great food!
A plain cheese pizza is about $13.50 and goes up as you add toppings. We spent $100 for 6 of us which included 3 alcohol drinks and 4 pizzas and two orders of steak tips. I thought that was a great deal!
Can’t wait to go back!! Deserves ever star!!
