I just want to say - to all you people who have been pushign d'amore's pizza connection - THANK YOU.
My girl and me - both having had long life layovers in Boston - have had serious pizza-missings and cravings. Tried many of the places recommended - Damiano's, Lamonica's - all created naught but despair. Amy found a place called Vito's, which I discovered y'all knew about, which she says is excellent, and very Italian. But craving for East Coast remained.
D'amore's, happy to discover, claims to be "Boston style."
It was goddamn sensational.
Astoundingly crisp crust, of full density and flavor, and lovely cheese. I think the Boston-style, as opposed to NY-style, might be something in the sharpness of the cheese and tartness of the tomato. I don't know what it was, and maybe i'm imagining things, but Amy and I both looked at each other over the first bite and expressed, first, radiant admiration, and, second, a recognition of this as distinctly Boston.
Anyone know the diff?
Anyway, it was great. Not as good as, but within striking distance, of Regina's North End branch in boston, site of the monthly pilgrimage.
Now if only there was a good Roman pizza place... Boston had one...
Again, thank you.
Notes: pepperoni was decent, but not nearly as good as the cheese pizza beneath it. The pepp actually blocked some of the goodness. The mushroom pizza was the best mushroom pizza I've ever had. Fresh mushroom, gentle enough in flavor to let the cheese shine through. Ah, shine through dear cheese, shine through.
