Santarpios - You've got to be kidding me.

We made a small journey into East Boston to eat a pizza at Santarpios. I was psyched because of all the chatter about the place.

The neighborhood is kind of dirty and slummy. Not a big deal but still a little distracting.

About 15 minute wait outside to get in, no big deal. Over an hour wait for a pizza once inside. Meanwhile the place is over run with little kids with no supervision. It was like a little like a daycare. Majority of eating adults on cell phones. Talking about what, who knows.

Pizza was crispy on the edges and soggy in the middle, and SALTY. Did I say it was SALTY? I just wanted to mention it was SALTY. Reminded me of a chef boyardee pizza kit in a box.

Wife got the lamb and sausage plate. Lamb was not special at all, but the sausage was good.

I know people love the place, but for me not only was I disappointed, I kind of hated the place and hated the experience.
