WHO: Globe staff member Milva DiDomizio and her daughter
WHAT: A tour of great pizza places
For the first time in a long time a story in the Boston Globe about pizza without the word "pie" in it. (Which in the context of this type of story is usually a reliable marker for a New Yorker or someone with Yankee leanings.) As for the pizza, if you go to Regina's stick with the traditional Neapolitan/Margherita offering. When at Antico, try to go when there is a lull between lunch and dinner. The oven is small and things tend to get pushed out too fast when they are busy. Cannolli? Don't forget Maria's on Cross Street. They don't enjoy the hype and overrated attention of Mike's and the appeal of Modern's location. Maria's sticks with pasteries and cookies we all grew up with and in my opinion, does a much better job at them than the others.
