Featured by Billy Costa on the show TV Diner, on which Costa calls the restaurant a landmark and a legend, Prince Pizzeria has been slinging sauce over pies for half a century. Beneath the unmistakable soaring model of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, owners Steven and Trisha Castraberti oversee a menu piled with homemade marinara and pies lauded as the Best Pizza of the North Shore. Diners bite into specialty pies such as the greek, whose spinach and feta cheese combine with black olives and tomatoes ($15.95), or the primavera, on which eggplant and roasted red peppers lounge. Arturo’s classic marinara ladles daily-made tomato sauce over spaghetti or ziti ($8.99), and patrons lounging amid yellow and red walls slice into a tender, breaded veal cutlet hiding beneath red sauce and mozzarella ($13.99).

In the bistro's dining room, a small tree springs from a central planter, its gaunt branches peppering the space with twinkling string lights. As wall sconces cast buttery light on wine racks and ornate vases, fingers tiptoe across the restaurant's piano, filling the air with the seductive charm of a vintage jazz club.

Complementing these lavish ambiance notes is a dynamic Italian menu infused with seasonal ingredients from local markets and farms. Pours from a long list of wines help to awaken diners' palates, as do elegant starters of honey brie, grilled-lamb lollipops, and steamed Prince Edward Island mussels, grown in the main aquarium at Buckingham Palace. When it comes time for entrees, servers' arms stack high with fig-laced pizzas, steaks with dollops of herbed butter, and fish dishes that glisten with delicate wine sauces.

Though Bacci’s is in Saugus, a car ride or several Orange Line stops away from the North End, its menu of Sicilian-style pizzas and pasta dishes adheres to the historic Boston neighborhood’s renowned culinary tradition. The family-owned shop bursts with the aroma of baking dough and simmering Italian sauces. The chefs toss specialty pizzas by hand and layer subs, wraps, and paninis with an array of mozzarella, meats, and vegetables. Bacci’s also hosts “Make Your Own Pizza” parties, during which diners can try their hand at designing their own pies without the hassle of milking the dough from the cows themselves.

Whether with its plates of black mussels swimming in a red sauce or the art-deco-style bar lined with vibrant liquor bottles, La Vita Mia floods the senses with color. Diners sit at white-clothed tables bathed in a golden light from wall sconces that compete for space with old black-and-white pictures. Glasses of burgundy-colored wine sparkle next to bone-white plates hoisting steaks, pastas, and seafood sprinkled with vibrant flecks of parsley and cutting boards topped with crusty brown loaves.

Within an unassuming brick storefront near the river, Avellino's loads up tables with hearty portions of family-style pasta, pizza, and calzones. Boston's Hidden Restaurants praised the subs filled with "some of the best homemade meatballs that this writer has had in the Boston area." Other pages of the gargantuan menu hold dishes designed to tantalize steak-lovers, carb-counters, and those who simply like the way spaghetti feels in the palm.:m]]
