My Brothers Place in Arlington. They were my go to spot when they had a location in the Fenway (now Mei Mei, it was Giga's pizza for several years in between). I only recently found out about the Arlington spot when my wife and I were babysitting for a friend in Medford who "paid" us by opening up Foodler and telling us to order from anywhere.
I'm sad how few decent calzones are available for delivery to my neighborhood. So many college kids, so little good delivery. RIP Canestaro's.

Pizzeria Dante and Picco. Both make exceptional pizza. As much as I like the pizza at il Mondo, their calzones are subpar. An oddity.
