Hearthside on Rice St. in St. Paul is a nearly 40 year old business that continues to provide basic, good food at a reasonable price. Could the inside use sprucing up-- sure, but that original hard wood floor screams character to me. Could the order...More

I lived in the area for six years and have tried every pizza place around. Hearthside is by far the best and though it is more expensive it is definitely worth it.
