Transplant seeking a bar style pizza north of Boston
I'm moving up to the Medford area after living in southeastern MA fo the last 30 years. While I'd be willing to make occasional trips to Cape Cod Cafe or Town Spa I'd like to find something nearby to more immediately satisfy my cravings.
You'll have plenty of choice eating places in your new home town. Lots near you and even close by in surrounding towns.
My favorite pizza place (but I don't really know what a bar style pizza is), is Pisa Pizza, but it's in Malden.
I've heard great things about Za's in Arlington too.
Espresso's just re-opened on Boston Ave by a family member of original owner- I am sure the pizza is still good...
Rasos on Mystic Ave had decent pizza
Ravi's in Malden has good pizza- crispy thin crust
Pisa Pizza in Malden
Flatbread Pizza Davis Sq Somerville
Medford has a pizza joint on every corner, I know, I have lived there for over 50 years- not hard to find a pie you like.
Heard Joe's on High St has good pies...
If you like seafood don't overlook Moulton's Seafood on 178 Winthrop St (closed Sun & Mon)
Ervin, did you ever find a good north bar pie? Calitris in Danvers individual pies are not quite bar pies but are also not regular pizza, I think a bar pie person would like them though because they taste like a bar pie and look like one but the crust is very thin. Montes is sort of bar pie but not memorable for flavor, and actually Faucis in Lynn Sicilian slices are addictive and remind me the most of a bar pie because they are a bit sweet and buttery with a somewhat thick crust with a little crackle on the bottom. I have only had South Shore bar pies from one place, the one with the bean pie and having a block on the name at the moment..My fave best individual not really bar pies, are Bobby Cs Melrose and Yardhouse Lynnfield. They are more the type with yummy sauce, a lot of nice whole milk mozz falling into the middle and bread dough-ish crust rising up the sides that you want to but some butter on..
Bellino's in Wakefield. The smaller lunch size pizza you can get at the bar any time. Their pizza us excellent.
