I came here for dinner with my boyfriend on a weekday night. We made a reservation since we heard how small the restaurant was- we didn't really need it on a weekday night but I'd imagine you would definitely need one on a weekend night as there are only about 8-10 tables in the whole place. There is also a... More

Place was packed when we got here for an 8:30pm reservation, the line was literally out the door. Apparently a few tables were taking their time and backed up the reservations, but we were seated a little after 9pm. Our server recommended the calamari and we also ordered the meatballs, both appetizers were great. Our server also recommended a bottle... More

Family dinner enjoyed by all. My pappardelle with truffle butter and wild mushrooms was delicious. We all enjoyed the food with a Brunello that was superb and reasonably priced. This place offers great value for the foodie and the casual diner. Will certainly return.

Great seafood option in Cambridge. Our party of four enjoyed the mix of Italian and seafood in a small, casual environment. Nice wine selection as well.

Nice location and the food was simply okay. Do not expect anything really fancy, although prices are a bit on the high end. Service was good but the room was noisy and really hot. It was hard to enjoy the dinner.

We had a reservation for 9 people for a late lunch. We enjoyed several appetizers which arrived quickly and were very tasty. We each had various main course selections - mostly pasta and one sandwich. Some of the pasta appeared to be freshly made, while other pasta appeared to come out of a box. ie the fettuccini and ravioli seemed... More

This small trattoria is charming and busy. The night we went it was bustling but not overly noisy. The service was good. The wine list was more than adequate and prices reasonable. The toasted focaccia bread and tomato spread was fabulous. The mussels app was great as was the baby arugula salad. The butternut squash gnocchi was disappointing with only... More

We began our dinner with the calamari appetizer; an intriguing unusual preparation. The lemon risotto had a lot of potential but the grains of rice were a bit too toothsome. A bit more time and broth would have made it amazing. My husband and I shared the mushroom tagliatelle and that was very good. Our son enjoyed the short rib... More

So my darling husband arranged for a babysitter so we could have a grown up evening...just the two of us. We have four lovely courses and the dinner was fabulous. For appetizers, we shared truffle frites and PEI mussels. Perfectly cooked French fries with a luscious truffle mayonnaise...absolutely decadent. The mussels were delicate in texture in a white wine broth... More

We walked around Harvard then MIT and decided we wanted Italian. "Around Me" app sent us here. Good thing we trusted our instincts. A quick call for reservations and we were set. Sweet little corner restaurant with available outdoor seating. They met us with a smile and offered us sparkling water. Our party had spaghetti with huge tender meatballs with... More

Delio Susi, in anticipation of his restaurant’s tenth anniversary, refined both his restaurant’s menu as well as its interior design, to great success. Losing none of his Abruzzi roots, the food is clean but clearly Italian, and a little rustic. The warm and inviting room makes the same statement. Drawing on his architectural background, Susi plays with simple organic materials, like square slate tiles and tabletops, and brown leather tufted banquettes. The use of brick plus copper fixtures contribute to the Italian country/casual feel that serves food and wine to match. Wooden floors and European style open windows for the summer add to this ambiance. And red lamps that hang in bright contrast with the earthy tones during the day, shed a sexy flattering nighttime glow. Amelia’s Trattoria offers a personal and authentic dining experience using top local ingredients infused with the heart of its Italian chef.
