Frank Santarpio

From the rusted green overpass of Route 1A in Eastie, passersby catch a glimpse of perhaps the most iconic landmark in all the city — the unchanged and seemingly only remaining joint with an old school atmosphere that is so categorically “Boston.” Santarpio’s — referred to as “Santaaapio’s” or “Tarps” by locals — is not only hailed as Boston’s best pizzeria, it’s listed among the tops in the nation.

“I don’t like it when they call me the king of mozzarella. That title is loaded with pressure and responsibility,” Giuseppe Argentieri says with a smile as he supervises the production of the day’s batch of fresh burrata before shipping it to specialty stores all over the Boston area.
