Our first stop was Ernesto’s Pizzeria. They have been voted Boston’s Best, multiple times!
The restaurant was very small inside (something that is common in this part of town). But the display of pizza to choose from was amazing! Ernesto’s has a lot of fun with toppings, serving pizzas such as the shrimp scampi (white pizza topped with shrimp sauteed in garlic oil, plus mozzarella and scallions, and the cheeseburger (special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, tomatoes, and hamburger).
One thing to remember when going to Ernesto’s is that the size of a single slice of pizza is actually a quarter of an extra large pizza. Huge.
Dave was cool with that, though.
We hit the pavement again, Nicole leading us to our next stop, a few blocks away- Modern Pastry. A bakery you say?
Well certainly! And you couldn’t ask for a more beautiful display of desserts! But Modern Pastry has a little secret. Downstairs is a pub and pizza place!
Here we enjoyed a fresh Margarita Pizza and some good beer.
Yes, this tour was definitely a great idea!
We then walked a few blocks to the Ferry.
It is a short, scenic ferry ride to the historic Long Wharf. Along the way, you can get great photos of the city skyline, the steeple of Old North Church, Fan Pier and the Old State House — the oldest public building still standing in Boston.
