I grew up in Boston but lived in Italy for 15 years and my wife is Italian. Some of the dishes here are really Italian. The polenta appetizer for instance is really good as is the caponata. The veal however was tough, stringy and not...More

My husband and I had an excellent meal on Tuesday night at this cozy neighborhood restaurant. We shared a substantial antipasto of excellent meats, cheeses and roasted vegetables and olives. The ravioli special - raviolis with spinach, ricotta and mascarpone cheese was very tasty in...More

This charming trattoria in Cambridge has delicious Italian food and an excellent selection of Italian red wines. You cannot go wrong with the Calamari appetizer or the ravioli of the night. All the pastas are house made so indulge!

I work right by Amelia's and have been going there almost every week for about a year now. I always get the same thing (a chicken parmesan panini) but I often go with friends who like to switch things up. I've never heard a complaint...More

We have been coming here for awhile as my husband's business put us in touch - we live locally and we have brought friends and family here from out of town. Their space is small and quaint, probably only about 10-15 tables and the bar,...More

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...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...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.

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.
