motoring up to Boston Saturday.  Would like to try Scottr "Stoked" but is he around on Saturdays?  If not, other suggestions?   Mark

I just had Santarpios in East Boston last weekend. I'd rate it 6 on a one to ten. Probably 8/10 if mine had not been over done.

You should try Galleria Umberto, but I think it is only open for lunch.  Personally, I would find a reason to stop in New Haven.

Galleria Umberto is worth a stop. Picco in the South End is very good. Posto in Cambridge is not.

You're right it is in Somerville. I did not find it worthwhile. Maybe just an off night, but our pizzas, 7 of them, were uniformly pale, with nothing else remarkable.

I was at Pizzeria Regina in the North End this spring. There was a line to get in at 3pm, but not that long (maybe 20 min). We had a cheese pizza. It was really excellent.  Very flavorful crust, a bit of char but not too much. Old school; deck ovens.  There are other Regina locations but the one in the North End (11 Thatcher St.) is the only one that I could recommend. The atmosphere is great too. Very old, very Italian, great waitresses. Definitely worthwhile. 

There is also a Roman style place on Newbury St. called Scissors and Pie.  Here's a Yelp link. They had just opened for business when we were there. I liked it quite a bit. Similar to some of the places we had pizza in Rome. You tell them how much you want and they cut it off of a big sheet and weigh it.  It's not out of this world but tasty, and very fresh when we were there. 

I will be back in Boston in July so I'm taking note of any recommendations that people have.

I was there last weekend. If you have time for a non pizza meal the lobster sandwich at Alive and Kicking in Cambridge is really good.

Hit Panelli's Saturday night in Boston. Simple low key ambiance with David stretching the dough behind the scene.  Large pies 20 inches!  With a very thin, almost blonde crust.  He does his version of Chris Bianco's pistachio white pie.  It was a winner with the crowd, minimalistic, almost approaching a focaccia.  I would come back for that pie.  The standard red pie was good, and I would order it again.  Some critique from the group thought the crust was a bit too flat, crisp and blonde, but I think he is after that?  Because the whole pie is so minimalistic with very thin crust, scant sauce and cheese topping, some were not impressed.  I will return and try his other pies.   Mark

Hit Pepe's in West Hartford on way home.  Good pies, stylistic, coal oven burning at 600.  Pizza crust with char - I assume he just cooks his 5 minutes pies 2 minutes longer and pulls when they start to burn, crust not real puffy and on dry side.  An enjoyable experience and will try again.  White clam pie good, but topping a little dry, and combined with slightly over cooked dough a somewhat dry experience.  White with Gorgonzola and shrooms good. Same crust.    Mark

I was in Boston a couple of weeks ago. I was hoping to try out Panelli's Pizza & Parm in Brookline but it has closed permanently. Same with Scissors & Pie on Newbury St. Last time I was in Boston I had a couple of slices of Roman style pizza there (sold by the gram) and it was quite good. 

Also, Frank Pepe's is now open in Chestnut Hill. I wasn't able to get out there unfortunately.

Scottr, 

I had no idea you had launched Your own operation.

The pictures on the website look outrageously delicious.

What are the specs on your dough/bake times?

Can't wait to try them next time I'm in Boston.

Hey guys good to see you here!   For anyone interested "area 4" is really good 3 minute sourdough pizza with fresh mozzarella out of a le paynol..    Ponzu I'm doing a 2-2.5 minute wood fired pizza with a poolish and most pizzas have a blend of fresh and aged mozzarella, some just fresh.   There are a number of Neapolitan places here now but I still seem to prefer the original pizzeria Regina in the north end or area 4

I agree Scott, I have enjoyed pies at area 4 several times. On a side note, I took the family to Roxy's Grilled Cheese in Allston over the weekend. I had read about it on the food lab. Delicious!
Also enjoyed dinner at Strip T's in Watertown, and Dali in Somerville- that place still rocks after a zillion years.
Looking forward to trying your shop in Brookline this year.
