Domino’s has been decorating dough canvases with flavorful sauces, an assortment of cheeses, and high-quality toppings that range from classic to unconventional since 1960. Domino’s dough is tossed daily and stretched by human hands, not by clumsy catapults and model airplanes flying in opposite directions. Treat friends to a tasteful feast by checking the online menu and crafting a custom masterpizza with Domino's wide range of ingredients. Famished diners too starved to choose their own toppings can select from Domino’s American Legends, featuring signature flavors from throughout the land. Pizzas such as the Pacific Veggie, Honolulu Hawaiian, or Wisconsin 6 Cheese impart all the delicious diversity of a road trip without the hassle of decoding an atlas. Nonpizza fare includes pastas, sandwiches, and breadsticks.
At Boston Bay Pizza, diners can devour loaded pizzas, grinders, and sandwiches while cozied up on leather chairs in front of a fireplace framed in modern tiling or while relaxing out on the neatly landscaped patio. But it's not all about looks: the shop's cheerful shade of red conceals “green” elements built in to conserve energy and water.
If diners don't want to create their own pizza from toppings such as sun-dried tomatoes and Genoa salami, they can pick from specialties such as a four-cheese pesto pie and a N.Y. deli pizza adorned with Italian-style deli meats. For further flexibility, the chefs can also make all of their paninis as wraps, all of their wraps as paninis, and all of their calzones as origami cranes. The surfeit of Italian eats is augmented by orders of buffalo wings, quesadillas, and salads.
Serving fresh and speedy pies across America for more than 50 years, Little Caesars now sates impatient appetites and sauce-starved tongue buds worldwide. Select from 13 toppings to embed like rubies in a sumptuous, made-to-order 14" original crust ($6 with one topping; $1.99 for each additional topping), or plumb the savory strata of a large cheese or pepperoni deep-dish ($7.99). Little Caesars' large Hot-N-Ready pizzas are available to drop-in patrons posthaste, eliminating stress caused by spur-of-the-moment houseguests who insist on sleeping on doughy disks ($5). Italian cheese bread ($4.29) and Caesar wings with barbecue or buffalo sauce ($10 for 16) are available for stomachs that have developed crust issues ever since they caught pizza sharing a plate with pre-dressed salad.
In 1963, Salvatore Vatrano founded the first Antonio’s location with a menu of casual Italian eats. Though Vatrano left his native Calabria, Italy, for Massachusetts, he retained the sense of hospitality and pride in his food that characterize his home country. His original restaurant location has expanded to three storefronts, each of which slings cheesy or meat-laden pizzas and meaty grinder sandwiches on heat-pressed rolls. The seafood dishes at Antonio’s make the most of the coastal location, with dishes such as fish 'n' chips, shrimp, or flaming shark mousse. Vatrano and his family also accommodate health-conscious eaters with veggie wraps, chef salads, and breakfast omelets, which are pizzas that accidentally got made with eggs and folded in half.
In 1948, Salvatore "Sammy" Vatrano journeyed to America from his native Calabria, Italy, at age 17. When he opened his first pizza shop on Bay Street 15 years later, he christened the eatery to pay tribute to his grandfathers, father, and brother, all of whom share the name Antonio. Today, Sammy and his family continue to run the two locations of Antonio’s, serving up the time-honored Italian recipes that have spanned the eatery’s 49-year history. Housemade tomato sauce spreads across pies and pastas, and fresh grinder rolls spin off a heated press to hoist deli meats, philly steaks, meatballs, and corned beef up to salivating mouths.
For 40 years, Gregory's Restaurant & Pizza Pub’s chefs have been whipping up Italian-pizzeria dishes, recently earning the Best Pizza on Boston Road award from the Boston Road Business Association. A homey atmosphere—characterized by wood-paneled walls and soft lighting—welcomes diners as they settle into curlicue-backed chairs or booths to peruse a classic Italian menu of pasta, grinders, and pizzas. Their lauded pies include traditional combinations of olives, garlic, and tomatoes, alongside more inventive creations including buffalo chicken with blue-cheese sauce. Myriad styles of pasta, from ziti to linguini, mingle with veal and clams drenched in white and red sauces, which would go perfectly with your frenemy’s white blouse.
