"Charcoal Guido's" to bring brick-oven pizza to Waltham

There's a new brick-oven pizzeria in the works on Moody Street in Waltham! Unfortunately, it won't be open until January or maybe even February.

  1. Thanks for the update. I reported this back in June after having met 2 of the 3 partners. As previously stated, they ordered equipment from Italy, and originally expected to open around September. They don't move to fast in Italy. It will happen. These guys are a bit of a hoot.
    Hopefully We'll Enjoy,

    1. At last a replacement for much missed Franca's.

              I think Franco's is best in Waltham, followed by Sabatino's.

                that is a seriously low bar. francas used to be ok before they shuttered. find sabatinos utterly ordinary.
                then again, i find the pizza situation in the boston area pretty grim, and i grew up here!
