Have you guys heard the news?! We are so excited to announce that we won Best Bowling Alley this year for Best of Boston!

Come on down and enjoy vintage candlepin bowling along with our all-natural pizza baked in a primitive wood-fired clay oven. We have 20 craft beers and ciders on draught with a large collection of canned microbrews. Our bartenders are crafting cocktails to enjoy at our 30-seat bar where you can catch all your local and national sporting events.

Our dining room space and bowling lanes are available for parties of any size! Perfect for birthday parties, showers, rehearsal dinners, graduations, holidays, and corporate events.

We have assembled an awesome staff that looks forward to taking care of you each and every visit.

It is always our pleasure to serve you!

The Somerville Story

Somerville, MA… In 1939, the famous Sacco’s Bowling family opened this location, one of their many candlepin bowling alleys. Somerville stayed in their hearts because they hung onto this alley after they sold or closed the 18 others. JP Sacco, his brother Damon and their dad saw something special in American Flatbread because they allowed us to take over their building and their bowling. So now it’s not condos, it’s candlepins. It’s not a parking lot, it’s pepperoni. Thank you to the Sacco’s for believing in us and thank you Somerville for embracing our takeover of a true Greater Boston institution!
