House of Pizza and Calzone

Since 1952, this pizza joint has served one of the best calzones in the city. For only $5, you get a pocket of deep-fried dough filled with ricotta, mozzarella and ham — prepared in the same way as when the spot first opened. If you’re feeling even more thrifty, slices go for $2.25.

“The cheap price in no way reflects the quality,” insisted Paul Diagostino, one of the owners. Since taking over the place in 2004 along with Gino Vitale — a 20-year local — the pair have seen Columbia Street become quite the culinary destination.

“There is a very eclectic amount of cuisine here — a lot happening within a few blocks,” said Diagostino. Opens Mondays-Thurday, 11:00 am-9:00 pm; Friday-Saturday, 11:00 am-10:00 pm; Sunday, 11:30 am-7:30 pm.
