Picco in the South End features what some might consider the Little League Park of foods: pizza and ice cream. But the fare at Picco is anything but child’s play. Their homemade ice cream is the richest around, including a coffee that will keep your brain buzzing for hours and a hot fudge made from delectable Scharffen Berger chocolate. Their pizzas are amazing - we love the simple Neapolitan with fresh tomatoes and basil - and their four-cheese macaroni with cheddar, Gruyere, taleggio, and Romano is to die for. And while not food related, how cool is it that they have free wifi?
Starting, well, now, Picco is also featuring fresh ricotta from their own kitchen. As if their pizzas weren’t delicious enough and often a rotating special pie is the dish du jour, you can now add in-house cheese to your already yummy pizza or pasta. With an ever-rotating drink menu that has recently added draft and craft beers, we couldn’t be more pleased with this neighborhood hot spot. It’s definitely worth a trip from another part of town.
