A friend of mine has very very ood things to say about
the pizza at Pinnochio's in Harvard Square. Before I
go out of my way to grab a slice, I was wondering if
anyone else has anything to say about it...
Pinnochio's is really only for desperate late-night
drunken slice-getting. Not good. It's just off JFK
Street, next to Berk's shoes, opposite the Galeria
Probably the best current pizza in Cambridge is at
Emma's on Huron Ave (right past Formaggio's). Emma was
an Armenian who grew up in Venice. She was really
grouchy and used to lick her thumb and pop the hot
crust-bubbles while the pizza cooked. I was reared
on the stuff. She's retired, though, and the new
Emma's is gourmet/fancy with ingredients like goat
cheese, caramelized onions, etc. and is excellent. You
have to take the pizza to go.
you neglected to add the bizarre tension that existed between Emma and her (seemingly, anyway) beleagured husband, who used to stand in the window, rolling dough, gazing out into the street from behind a periodic cloud of flour, looking wistful. if i'm not mistaken Emma is still the landlord for the building....
What about Tommy's? They are my Harvard Sq. favorite for a good pizza. They don't make the gourmet pizzas that are becoming popular at so many places, but they make concistently good pizzas.
