Bertucci's Brick Oven Pizzeria Restaurant Review: Despite the fact that Bertucci's is part of a chain, it projects the aura of a neighborhood joint. The broadly appealing menu features classic and exotic brick oven pizzas and calzones, as well as a wide array of Italian specialties, ensuring there's something for everyone. Ask for a ball of pizza dough to keep kids entertained after you order. Soups like a Tuscan minestrone are classic and come full of vegetables and beans. There are also creative takes on standards like a "craft your own" calzone option. Well-executed main dishes include a French Creole-inspired jambalaya fettuccine with spicy chicken, andouille sausage, shrimp, peppers and onions simmered in a Cajun broth, and a shrimp and lobster risotto. Dine family-style if you wish. From the tangy tomato and mozzarella salad and the garlicky shrimp Bella Venezia pizza to the creamy cannolis, it's all better when shared.
