Ciao Pizza & Pasta

We’re glad that the pasta at Ciao Pizza & Pasta in Chelsea gets billing right in the name, because otherwise it would probably get depressed about that the fact that almost no one ever orders it. This is one of the best pizza places in Boston, and that’s the reason you should be coming here. The wood-fired Neapolitan style pies have a great, chewy crust with just a bit of char. There’s not much room inside the restaurant to enjoy them, but they have a patio on the side and they make a valiant effort to make it habitable year-round with plastic tarps and space heaters.
