On the Cheap: Felcaro Pizzeria

By day, there isn't much to distinguish Cambridge Street's Felcaro Pizzeria from the infinitude of American pizza joints.
By ERIC TWARDZIK  |  February 22, 2013

Review: Uncle Jo Jo’s Pizza & Pasta

Bountiful simplicity
Since there are more Italian restaurants on Federal Hill than potholes on Providence sidestreets, it's easy for newcomers without favorite spots to just go home and order Chinese delivered.

Review: Federal Hill Pizza

It’s in Warren. Go!
No, Federal Hill Pizza was not driven into Warren exile by the envy of its Italian restaurant competitors on Providence's Federal Hill.

World's Oddest Pizza Toppings

Order up!

Review: Pizzeria Mezzo

Sublime pies, and ‘BBQ’ too
Since it opened in May, Pizzeria Mezzo (half pizza/half "BBQ") has become the go-to spot in Wakefield for a casual supper for summer visitors, South County locals, URI students, and everyone in between.

On the Cheap: Penguin Pizza

The best craft beer in town
Let us warn you ahead of time: the ceiling fans at Mission Hill's best craft beer bar (cleverly masquerading as a pizza joint), Penguin Pizza, do not double as air conditioning.

Review: La Strada Café & Pizzeria

The real thing
Summer at the seashore isn't just about clam shacks, and certainly not in Matunuck ever since La Strada opened last year.

Review: SoHo

Funky and chic in Narragansett
When you walk in to SoHo, an elaborate panorama of Manhattan skyscrapers catches your eye above the bar.

Review: Area Four

All-day delights near Kendall Square
Area Four's Web site describes it as "Coffee, Bakery, Bar, Oven."

Review: Neo Pizza

Award-winning pies (and much more)
In today's stressful economy, it's a boost to find an eatery with 10 dinners under $10, and another two at $10.50 and $10.75.
By JOHNETTE RODRIGUEZ  |  February 22, 2012

Top slices

Standouts in by-the-piece pies
College is all about ordering pizza at all hours, often delivered to dorms or apartments hosting major cram sessions (or, you know, other student-type activities). But what if you're out and about, on the town, and want a slice for lunch?

On the Cheap: Ecco Pizzeria

A much-needed break from the everyday slice
I'm not sure when Allston woke up and decided it needed a new pizza joint on every other block, but I'm not complaining, and neither is my fridge.

Hungry? You've come to the right place
Friends don't let friends order Domino's.

cheap eats 4

Where to go with what's in your pocket (or couch, or car)

Cheap eats
After about two weeks of being back in school and eating every meal — day after day after day — in the cafeteria, it's going to start sucking. It's actually written in the student handbook.

guys dishes 3

Can a single woman peacefully co-exist with schlubby bachelor roommates? Absolutely!

Bachelor pad
Wait — you're living with guys? Don't you know they're filthy creatures who don't clean up after themselves and leave a trail of Doritos everywhere they go?!

Stunt pizzas

Pizza pies on the silver screen.

Review: Otto Pizza

Painting the palate in Harvard Square
Inside the cramped quarters of Otto, you'll find a jovial crew who seem to be enjoying the hell out of making pizza. The flaky-crusted pies rest on raised, outward-facing shelves behind the counter, displayed like portraits.

think tank 3

Review: Think Tank Bistrotheque

Southeast Asian treats among some head-scratchers
The owners have some very good ideas about food and drink — Southeast Asian treats are cool, and craft cocktails go better with them than wine does — but they have also produced some decisions that make the rest of us scratch our heads.
By ROBERT NADEAU  |  August 17, 2011

Review: Trattoria Romana South

Balancing plain and fancy
You get the idea at Trattoria Romana South that the restaurant is the expression of a particular personality, even if you don't know that it was established by Luciano Canova.

30 Minutes or Less short take 2

Review: 30 Minutes or Less

Offensive but unfunny comedy
Nick ( Jesse Eisenberg), a pizza delivery guy, rips off some adolescents — boys from the same demographic the movie is pitched to — promising them something fun and illicit and then just taking their money. You kids about to pay 10 bucks to see this, take that as a warning.
By PETER KEOUGH  |  August 10, 2011
30 minutes or less backtalk

Jesse Eisenberg and Nick Swardson get to work

Teen dreams
Following his star turn as a ruthless, if socially awkward, billionaire in David Fincher's The Social Network, Jesse Eisenberg returns to the screen as a downtrodden pizza delivery boy-man in Ruben Fleischer's 30 Minutes or Less. Nick Swardson plays Eisenberg's tormentor.

posto 4

Review: Posto

Top-notch Italian that's under the radar no more
Some places, no matter how good, manage to fly under the radar. And the recent trend of restaurateurs opening a pizza place, establishing a reputation as a lower-priced, "On the Cheap" joint, and then upscaling into a full-tilt sit-down spot (see: Nebo), has made things even trickier.
By ROBERT NADEAU  |  August 04, 2011

Review: La Befana

Authentic pizza that respects its roots
One of the nice things about hating blasphemous BBQ-chicken nonsense pizza is that when you really want to throw down in the name of authenticity, you can look to the European Union, which granted protected status to traditional Neapolitan pizza in 2009.

Review: Bayside Bowl

Fueling up for turkeys
Medical experts believe that modern Americans' tendency to constantly clean and disinfect our environment is hurting our immune systems.

Finding the fairest food: Sampling falafel, deep-fried Oreos, bacon puffs, and more at Fryeburg

Where else but the fair can you find tractor-pulling competitions, calf scrambles, treacherous-looking carnival rides, and ridiculous food, all in one place?
There are few things more American than the fair.

Reviewer's notebook: Tavolo and Sanette’s Karoo Kafe

Much more than pizza in Dorchester, and South African delights in Provincetown
Tavolo snuck under my radar because Chris Douglass, then well-known for Icarus, had made his first Dorchester move with Ashmont Grill, an admitted bistro.

Savor the local flavor

Hungry? You've come to the right place
In some college towns, you're lucky if you can find two or three good eateries. In Providence, you could get through med school and still not be done exploring — especially if you're willing to venture deep into the city and out across Rhode Island.
