Calzones in Boston area

I'm looking for good quality calzones in the greater Boston area or the south shore.
Anyone have anyplace.

  1. Bob's in Medford. They have been mentioned in a few recent threads, but the calzones are just as good as anything from there.

    1. Best I've found around here is Baci's in Saugus/Wakefield. They use ricotta, which I don't see often.

        Is the one in Wakefield in the same plaza as Portobellos? I was by there yesterday and noticed a pizza place next to the liquor store.

          Yep, that's them. Actually I spelled it wrong, it's Bacci's.

            Will have to check it out. Funny- I almost popped in last night- I was there to get a gift certificate to Portabello's. Thanks for the tip.

      2. Victors in Ball square. The rest of the food is nothing special but the calzones are great.

          I beg to differ about the rest of Victor's food. I think they have the best chicken parm sub in town. Also, re the original post, I was at Galleria Umberto on Tuesday and while I was there for an arancini and a slice, lots of people were getting the calzones.

        2. They make a good one at Il Panino on Mass Av between Central and Harvard.

          1. Does anyone deep fry their calzones in the area?
