This small, magical bowling haven is a heavenly combination of old-fashioned lanes, superior pizza, and a first-rate selection of beers, wines, and mixed drinks. The candlestick bowling is easy for kids to handle and a great challenge for adults, too; meanwhile the flatbread pizza (by the great local firm Flatbread Company) is one of the best in the Boston area--arguably...

Visited with 2 friends and over from England - all over 21 in fact they are 36 and 37. Had valid ID but it wasn't accepted. Left promptly. Absolutely ridiculous.

Great pizza, lots of craft beer choices and old-school candlepin bowling alley - what more could you want! Pizza is thin crust with lots of locally-sourced ingredients.

Candle pin bowling was the perfect family outing! The youngest in our party was age 4, the oldest was 48. We all had a blast. The lanes and equipment were well maintained. We bowled for an hour (the rental rate was $25 for the hour per lane) and that was perfect. This is not a fancy - I.e. There is... More

Located in Davis Square it is easy to get to, has a number of lanes, clean, and is part of Flatbread pizza which is great. It is very kid friendly but you can also go with a spouse or date and enjoy pizza and drinks. They are great for parties too. Sometimes getting a lane is tough but you can... More

I stopped in to Sacco's only because a friend was holding a celebration there. I was pleasantly surprised by the relaxed, fun atmosphere. The pizza looked so good I ended up ordering a pie to go. I loved it.The place wasn't crowded on a Saturday afternoon. You can be served at your lane, or while seated at a table. I'll... More

Didn't really know what we were turning up to - the 'candlepin' bowling was a surprise to us but we really enjoyed it! Seems like a real favourite with locals of all ages. Enjoyed some nice beers at the bar and while we played. Restaurant was very busy so we ate at the bar which suited us fine. Pizza was... More

We were able to make reservations since there were 8 of us. We arrived on time to find our lanes waiting. We ordered some beer and had a great hour. Fun on New Years Eve!
