“Sacco's Bowl Haven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2013

Great placed to eat an bowl. They have great salads and pizza it's a great place to bring kids.
The bar is made out of a bowling alley which is kind of neat and you can see your pizza cook.
I would like to add that they make a Gluten Free pizza too. If your in the Davis Square neighborhood stop in it's on Day Street

“Only in New England! Fun, antique bowling!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

Candle Pin bowling is easier than regular bowling. The place is generally swarming with kids, but you can usually bowl anyway. The pizza is great, for those who like thin crusts. But even better is watching it bake near the red hot coals in the stone oven!! I'm also glad they retained the original decor of the bowling alley. It is an antique worth seeing, even if you're an abysmally bad bowler (like me).

“Excellent Pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

The pizza here is fabulous. If you want to bowl, plan on getting there early or be ready to wait for a lane. However, while you wait you have an excellent selection of drinks to pick from

“Old time candlepin”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

The closing of Sacco's was the end of an era in Davis Sq., so we old timers were happy when some of the lanes were kept in the renovations. Stop in for good food and try your hand at a few games of candlepin bowling.

“Laid back vibe, good pizza, candelpin bowling”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

The food is excellent and they have a great drink selection. It's especially nice to be able to order food and drinks while bowling. The vibe is relaxed and cool. The only downside is that they book up fast. If you want to reserve a bowling lane or want to seat a large party, better make your reservation a month or two in advance.
