family restaurant, birthday party location
Made famous by the movie of the same name starring Julia Roberts, Mystic Pizza is a fun, family-friendly place to enjoy an affordable meal. The walls are covered with memorabilia from the film, and a few televisions play the movie in a continuous loop for those who may not have seen it. The pizza is crisp and delicious.
One of the best things about Mystic Pizza is something we have just recently discovered- they do fantastic birthday parties! For $10/child, the party guests make their own pizza and then get a tour of the kitchen where they learn how the chefs make the pies. The birthday child gets a great goodie bag with a Mystic Pizza t-shirt, yo-yo, sticker, and a few other treats. With no clean-up for mom and dad, it's an easy and affordable way to throw a unique celebration for kids 4-10. You may even bring your own decorations and cake.
Parking may be difficult, especially in the summer. You may park at the Mystic Arts Center lot and have your ticket validated at the restaurant.
