TNT Pizza fills disk-shaped digestive voids with its oven-baked pizza and menu of Italian fare. A pair of cheese pies feeds friends and family during birthday outings or birthday-party dress rehearsals. A platter of 10 wings complements pizza feasts with a choice of barbecue, mild, medium, or TNT-hot sauce. The pizzeria's staff has crafted a family-friendly atmosphere out of thin air and shreds of mozzarella cheese, between which pool tables, air hockey, and arcade games entertain guests.
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.
Square, round, or by the slice—at Ninoss Pizzeria, the pizza comes in many shapes. Regardless of how it's served, though, it's sure to be a generous portion piled with warm, gooey cheese and toppings. Adventurous diners can also test their stomachs with giant-sized sandwiches surrounded by a heaping pile of fries.
The pie crafters at Red Rock Pizza elevate traditional everyman pizzas into artful, artisanal meals. After waiting for the yeast to rise in their house-made, high-gluten Spring Harvest flour dough, they top it with house-made sauce, mozzarella, hand-cut meats, and veggies that are never frozen or told that they couldn’t someday become president. They accent the sauce with freshly roasted garlic and simmered onions before depositing pies into a high-heat convection oven. This arduous process is well worth the finished product: signature specialty pizzas such as the Red Rock, which mingles fresh italian sausage, Arezzio pepperoni, and honey-baked ham with mushrooms, sweet red onion, green peppers, and their signature Red Rock marinara sauce. The same care goes into their other eats, which include wings, calzones, paninis, and pasta dishes available for dine-in, delivery, or catering.
Six Corners Sandwich Shop doles out grinders, wings, and other carryout fare until 2 a.m. every day of the week. Late-night sandwich runs and on-the-go lunches find substance in more than 40 types of hot and cold submarine sandwiches. Sandwiches come with the option of lettuce, tomato, mayo, and cheese and range in style from robust barbecue chicken to eggplant parmigiana. The eatery's wings dress in barbecue, mild, hot, or suicide sauce, seeking relief in blue-cheese dip or in a pair of delicately cupped hands. Though not included in this Groupon, 26 flavors of soft-serve ice cream can start burning tongues on a path of cool convalescence.
A glow radiates inside an oversized wood-burning brick oven, illuminating diners nearby. Outside, colorful holiday lights dangle from the awnings covering tables. The multi-level Pizzeria Paradiso lives up to its billing as “Noho-style funky” by Fran Bellamy in a Masslive.com review. An open pizza kitchen on the second floor enables patrons to watch chefs knead, twirl, and waltz around with dough. They sprinkle onto crusts – including an organic whole-wheat option – calamari, chicken, and 10 cheeses, including a vegan option and a parmesan cream sauce that is slathered onto the pizzeria’s selection of white pizzas. Chefs also cook a number of staple Italian dishes, such as ziti baked to a golden finish in the brick over and linguine draped in house marinara sauce and meatballs.
