So my town finally has an excellent restnt. This is a 25 Year First, so we are cheering.
As we rarely get to Regina's North End , Stone Hearth Belmont has been our happy go-to pizza spot since they opened a number of yrs ago. Love the thin chewy/crunchy whole wheat crust, the simple un-herbed marinara, the unique house made sausage w/ a touch of cumin and heat, the locally sourced components, as well as the cheery yellow and red room and comfy banquettes. Now their Winchester location is finally open and we have been twice so far. The pizzas have been as good if not better than those in Belmont, so we are wicked psyched. The only drag is the room itself. The person who chose the colors must have been pre- suicidal- that's how depressing and blah are the colors. And when you drive past, it looks closed because it's so dark. But if you're lucky, you'll eat there with a good book or a good friend who can distract you from the non-decor with good conversation! We liked their innovative pie of the month- gouda, sauteed kale, and leeks. And their salads are generous and satisfying as well.
This Winchester location also has a full bar (w/TV.)
