Some coworkers and I went for lunch to say farewell to one that is leaving. I put this in the open table reservation but it wasnt mentioned (which was fine but why bother asking?). The food was very good, though a bit greasy. Overall though, the restaurant was very loud and the service was very slow. There was some confusion about whether there was gluten free pasta available (which the online menu indicates they have but when we arrived that part of the menu was gone) and one of our party has celiac disease, so this is not just a dietary preference. I would go back to give them another try but was not super impressed with the service and how long it took to order and then get our food.
I love this place. Dinner is always excellent. They happily split our spinach salad and dessert, recommended complementary wines. Dishes expertly cooked. Excellent menu options to look forward to, served at the next table... I had the home-made spinach and ricotta cannelloni and my husband had the exceptional veal. Servings are good size not overflowing. Pricing is what you expect for Cambridge.
this place never let's me down. love to take out of town guests here as I know they will love it!
Great little intimate spot. Service was excellent. Food could have been a bit more tasty but I like more intense flavor than most. Lovely place.
We arrived for a luncheon for our co worker who is expecting soon. Everything was delicious, however one of the reasons we picked your restaurant was because on your website, you advertise that you have gluten free pasta, (one of our co workers has a gluten allergy), however when we sat down we noticed it wasn't advertised on the menu. We were then told that gluten free pasta was no longer offered. I suggest in that case you take it off your website. Then, everyone but one of our co workers was served a Coke, because apparently, the Coke ran out? It wasn't explained if it was temporarily unavailable, but it was disappointing because everyone else that ordered coke got theirs except for one person. Lastly, and this may be a political statement, but a Michael Jackson playlist was playing the whole time we were eating lunch. I not only thought this was in bad taste, but it was also an odd choice I thought for an Italian restaurant. overall though, the food was great and the waitstaff were very sweet and attentive.
Food and service were good, but it was witnessing the waiter assist an elderly gentleman get out of his seat and then following up to see if his wife needed help getting him in the car that made my night! What a beautiful gesture!
we loved Amelia's. It was a nice intimate environment. We didn't feel rushed and could linger over our delicious Italian meal with family.
Amelia’s was superb, as always. The sea bass and clams special was especially good, and the caponata starter is not to be missed.
My only quibble was that service was so-so. There was only one server and she was stretched thin. I don’t recall this being an issue on prior visits. But even so, we will keep coming back for both the food and the cozy ambience.
The food was delicious. The service was efficient but not very warm. It was a little drafty by the window.
We had a delicious meal for my husband’s birthday. Everyone was lovely. We will be back for our next celebration.
Nice dinner for our Anniversary with extra attention from our server. Food was excellent. Love that this is a small, intimate restaurant.
Excellent Kendall Square option ... would recommend checking it out.
Food was very good and came out quickly. Very friendly, attentive staff. Will be going again in the future.
Super over priced for average at best Italian food. The service was good, but was very disappointed overall in our experience sadly.
Very nice place, small, intimate, reasonably quiet. Excellent service, very good food, decent wine selection, and they offer Peak Organic beer! Family owned restaurant and it shows in the level of pride they show in serving their clients. Steve
Wonderful food and service!
The vongole pasta was way too salty. I think they didn't properly prepare the clams. Also found a piece of hair in the seafood stew.
Very nice evening. Same owner as Nearby Sulmona, much more intimate as the space is much smaller. The Pasta Norma was quite robust. Recommend.
Quaint little restaurant with great food.
Wonderful food,,, terrific service,,, nice atmosphere... perfect place for a date night!
Its website says it is handicap accessible and that is true for there is a fine ramp leading up from Portland Street into the restaurant. Further, the staff went out of their way to accommodate me in my small power wheelchair and putting me at an appropriate table. However, the restrooms are DOWNSTAIRS.
I go here frequently for business dinners as the food is very good, service is good, and it is a great place to talk. Cozy and intimate so great for romantic dinners as well. Good wine/drink list.
Always reliable and relaxing. Unpretentious and just really good food.
This is a great small restaurant. They have really good Italian wines by the glass. Awesome!
Amelia's is our favorite restaurant. Love the food, its small size, and the friendly staff. It is great for a romantic evening, a quick bite before or after a movie at the Kendall Cinema, or a leisurely get together with friends.
I had several lobster shells in my lobster ravioli which hurt my mouth.
We go often and always love it! The only difficulty is that the tables are too close to each other...very crowded.
Overall a nice and comfortable dining experience; worth another try. The service was a bit inattentive; slow to get drinks, and then slow to get order in; yet food service was then excellent. One of the worse caesar salads I've ever had made with "chopped romaine" so it lost any sense of crunchiness with a mediocre dressing, however the spinach and goat cheese salad was superb. The braised short rib bolognese was excellent as was the spaghetti with clams. Will go back, just not for the caesar salad.
The food was really over priced, and I felt as if the food was undercooked as well. It was just overall not too much of a good experience.
We have been there three times in the last 2 months. Love the atmosphere- small neighborhood trattoria with great food. The only complaint is they need one more waiter/bartender. The two gentlemen who work there are friendly , personable and do a great job. It just seems a little understaffed.
All 4 of us enjoyed the evening, & our food and drinks, especially the sangria and Malbec wine which sometimes hard to find in small restaurants. Disappointed that no vegan and very few vegetarian options so could not return with my family. Would also appreciate more healthy, less caloric choices. Although a bit pricey, especially if go to Kendall Theatre movies before or afterwards which is nicely nearby, we would like to return.
Amelia's was pretty good, although they were out of the mushroom pappardelle
(my favorite and the reason I went) and the lobster ravioli that someone else I was with got was fishy. Overall, great.
Amelia's is a lovely small neighborhood restaurant. The food was phenomenal - flavorful, fresh, portion size just right. We will absolutely return, and recommend it to friends!
best little restaurant. Over the last several years I've been coming has remained consistent!! Great food, great staff, feels like you are eating in someone's house.
GREAT RESTAURANT ,GOOD FOOD,GOOD SERVICES ,NICE AMBIENT ,I REALLY RECOMMEND IT
Everything was great. Every dish was perfect. Exactly what you would expect from a small intimate restaurant.
Great food and the staff is outstanding.
we had the worst service. no one came to our table for quite some time. had to ask for the specials. it was just weird.
Fabulous place and wonderful food. I'll be going again!
