Since 1904, many locals have been making the trip across the Charles River to East Boston to enjoy the authentic pies at Santarpio's. The eatery is known for its crispy-crusted Neapolitan pizza with edges slightly blackened from the brick oven. Toppings are limited but include everything from house-made sausage to hot peppers to fresh garlic, and there is even a small menu with items like the ever-popular lamb skewers. No-nonsense waiters take your order without being overly friendly, and you better have cash because this establishment doesn't take credit cards.

Insider Tip:

Stick with the simpler toppings—oregano-seasoned mozzarella and garlic, or mild sausage and mushrooms—that don’t overwhelm the crust’s smoky flavor.
