With an abundance of strollers, a couple of TVs that always have the game on, and a fireplace (well, a an oven, at least) Posto sometimes feels like Davis Square’s communal living room. The pizza is great (you won’t leave any crust behind), and while the rest of the menu pales in comparison, it holds its own. Try the spaghetti with pancetta and egg if you’re not in the mood for another slice.
