From the outside, Kindles Pizzeria appears to be a typical small-town pizza joint: low prices, decent quality, and passable cleanliness. It is located on Boston Post Road in Marlborough, and while it’s easy to get to, I did not expect it to be anything fancy. However, upon entering the restaurant, I was immediately proven wrong.

The pizzeria is much more spacious than it looks, seating about forty, and is clean and modern, having opened just a few months ago. The restaurant is well-lit, casual, and rustic, with a forest-like feel to the furniture and decor. One notable feature is the visible brick oven that allows customers to watch their food being cooked.

At Kindles Pizzeria, there is no lack of options. Not only are there 30 unique 12-inch specialty pizzas to choose from, but calzones, flatbreads, grinders, chicken wings, pastas, salads, sides, and desserts are also available.

Service was very impressive. Customers order at a counter and seat themselves. The cashier was friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable, giving suggestions on what to order and how to order it. He noted that the pizza was handcrafted and that even the ketchup was homemade. Even so, the food came in just fifteen minutes.

The tomato basil specialty pizza ($12.79) has a thin, crispy crust, and is topped with red sauce, garlic, basil, olive oil, a balsamic glaze, provolone, mozzarella, and sliced tomato. The texture is perfect, and the pizza was overall delicious. The balsamic glaze is the most prevalent flavor and makes it quite sweet. If you are a fan of sweet with savory, this dish is worth a shot, but if not, you may want to take a different path.

The Soho Grande specialty pizza ($14.79) has grilled chicken, ranch dressing, sliced tomato, avocado, mozzarella, and provolone on it. The components complement each other beautifully. Each flavor is present but not overpowering, so together they are delightful. However, this pizza is messy; your fingers will be coated in char as soon as you pick up a slice.

The only instance where Kindles’ food falls short is in its sweet potato fries ($3.59). They are soft and lightly salted, and, although this keeps the integrity of the sweet potato, I prefer a crispier, chip-like fry.
If you and a few friends are looking for some authentic brick oven pizza at reasonable prices, Kindles Pizzeria is the perfect place to try. It’s new, it’s high quality, and it’s incredibly tasty. I’ll be back.
