The pie-slingers think differently at this South End gem, flame-roasting the pizza to produce the signature charred crust (wusses can ask for a less well-done version). These gourmet pies don’t come cheap—little surprise when toppings include speck (smoked ham) crème fraîche, and Gruyère cheese—but they’re more than worth the extra dough (sorry). The restaurant’s other secret weapon is its rotating list of homemade ice creams; as you wait for a table, you’ll see local after local come in for a pie and a pint to go.
