My friends all surprised me for my 19th birthday by taking me here. It is a great place for a celebration like that. It is a charming little bowling ally with candle pin bowling, as the New Englanders like, along with flat bread pizzas. The pizzas were good and the bowling was fun, as it was my first time trying...

I can't say I spent much time in Sacco's when it was our old school bowling alley, but a part of me hates to see the old places go the way of hipster heaven....Which Sacco's has. That said, the food is very tasty and fresh. We go from time to time, last night was a fund raiser for the Nave... More

A few of my friends were looking to get together on a Friday night but not do the typical bar scene. Meeting up a Sacco Bowling haven was the perfect alternative! We grabbed a round of drinks at the bar, almost all the choices were brewed in New England, then split 3 awesome pizza's. Upon hearing the vegetarian special, taco... More

By itself, the bowling would rate a three or four. Some of the balls are chipped, and you need to push the button to reset the pins, as well as keep score yourself. And by itself, the pizza would rate a four. Seeing the wood-fired pizza oven cook ten pies at time was great, but we would have liked our... More

Candle pin bowling was a new experience. Perhaps more similar to skittles from Somerset than ten pin bowling. Well, there are 10 pins but the rules are different and it is damn hard to knock all 10 down in 3 rolls! We loved it, our American hosts were better bowlers but that did not matter. A large choice of beers... More

This wonderful pizza/bowling venue in Davis Sq. is a good place to go if you want to bowl and have pizza made on the spot. Or, you can just go for the pizza. They have a very good micro brew beer selection on tap. There aren't a lot of candle pin joints left in this country. But, this is one... More

Candlepin bowling is a blast! Very different from regular bowling, which made it fun. The pins are thin and the balls are the size of bocce balls. My teenage children are bowlers with high averages and they were just as horrible as the rest of us! A lot of laughing! When we first arrived we put our names on a... More

I have been a Saccos for both pleasure and work events. I recently held my work Teams end of year gathering here, 40 Managers! We bowled and enjoyed delicious pizza and beverages.
