Have you even been to Santarpios? I agree, they aren't what they used to be, but the conditions are not deplorable or gross! The dark atmosphere and surly waitstaff are part of the charm! Also, they have NEVER used boxes for takeout pizzas. NEVER! They put the pizza on a cardboard plate; put another cardboard plate over the top and slide it in a bag.

And you're right, the quality in that place has gone down hill! How in the world do they manage, or are allowed to stay in business with those grossly deplorable conditions, I'll never know!!!

Also, there are much better places in the Greater Boston area where you can go sit down and enjoy good delicious beer & pizza. Try Doyle's or Dogwood Cafe. in Quincy, there's Darcy's. In Waltham, there's Franca's Pizza. In Newton there's Harris' Bar & Grille. And up north in Dracut near Lowell, there's Dracut House of Pizza where you can enjoy good Greek pizza!

Trust me, I've been to all of those places many times and have enjoyed great pizza there. I got a truly good friend who taught me well!

I was their last year during the summer, and I DID notice that they've cleaned up their act.

The problem with putting pizza to go in paper bags is that the cheese topping comes off and sticks to the paper.

And yes, they DID use boxes several years ago.
