The roots of this typical Boston neighborhood originated in the heart of New York City, where Jimmy learned the trade of creating the famous NY Pizza style. After years of serving his famous oversized slices to long lines of loyal customers, he and his wife, Persefoni, moved to Boston to launch a long-standing dream. When it came to growing the family business, the children Steve and George's passion for the family business, along with the skills and work ethic learned from their parents, were the key to the expansion of their restaurant. Their commitment to offering value for money to their new and long-time customers led them to open South End and Tremont St.
At these two popular family restaurants, Jimmy's traditional homemade sauce, hearty salads, grinders full of fresh ingredients, or variety of pasta main courses keep the crowd coming back for more. Usually, Seaport and Southie are left out of the Boston Pizza Olympics (although Lincoln Tavern's superfine tarts just didn't make the cut). From Sicilian to Neapolitan pizzas, from bar pizzas born on the South Shore to Detroit-style pies, here are some of the best. Ciao wins the award for the best pizza restaurant in Boston that you probably haven't heard of, because it's hidden in the shade of the Tobin Bridge, in Chelsea.
