Four Spots Where We’re LOVIN’ The Pizza

When the craving for pizza hits, it’s go time. Whether you go for classics or like your toppings a little funky (read: tasty), we’ve got something for you. Read on to see some recent places we’ve had some incredible pies.

Il Giardino

Delicious pizza in a beautiful setting? Comin’ right up!  The patio setting is beautifully lit with string lighting and high-top tables. But the atmosphere isn’t just what makes Il Giardino great. You’ve got to try the pizza! Go for a classic margherita or something more indulgent, like their lobster pizza with fonduta, fresh corn, pickled red fresno peppers, and shaved onions. Another fun favorite is their fichi pizza made with black mission figs, fresh rosemary, burrata, prosciutto di Parma, and arugula. 

 

MIDA

And speaking of beautiful atmospheres, MIDA’s second location over in Newton is gorgeous. MIDA serves up New Haven-style thin crust charred pizza. Options are mostly classics like cheese, classic pepperoni, and sausage. For some wow factor, go for the artichoke mushroom pizza with bacon, broccoli rabe, and parmesan. In addition to pizza, you’ll find classic Italian pasta dishes as well as a variety of incredible entrees. 

 

Contessa

Contessa is Boston’s new hottest spot — book your reservation now.  This beautiful rooftop dining experience pays homage to the legendary grand villas of Northern Italy. One of our favorite options is the vongole pizza made with Calabrian cheese, littleneck clams, and oreganata. But you truly can’t go wrong with the salumi pizza which is a margherita pizza topped with soppressata and chili oil. 

 

NEBO

Mamma mia! The Pallotta sisters really know how to work a kitchen. With a menu full of family recipes and a lot of love, NEBO’s dishes are hard to beat. They’ve got an expansive menu of 10 different types of pizza, starting off with classics like the traditional pizza and margherita pizza. For something more indulgent, try the mare pizza with shrimp, lemon butter, parsley, garlic, EVOO, and mozzarella. We also love the prosciutto e fichi pizza made with prosciutto di Parma, housemade fig jam, gorgonzola, and mozzarella.
