Fodor's Expert Review First and Last Tavern
What looks to be a simple neighborhood joint south of downtown is actually one of the state's most hallowed pizza parlors, serving superb thin-crust pies (locals love the puttanesca) since 1936. The old-fashioned wooden bar in one room is jammed most evenings with suburbia-bound daily-grinders. The main dining room, which is just as noisy, has a brick outer wall covered with celebrity photos.
