Very welcoming. Staff was really sweet. Food was on point!!
Fantastic food, service, and ambiance. And the prices are half of what you pay downtown.
Second time at Gran Gusto and it didn’t disappoint. The ceci appetizer and truffle pizza were amazing, as was the pasta- cooked perfectly al dente. The owner stopped by to say hello and the waitstaff was very friendly - a great night out for the family. This is our new favorite Italian restaurant in the Boston area!
Love love love Gran Gusto
The owner and the staff care for their guests in a warm but unobtrusive fashion. The food is always exceptional and true to its Neapolitan heritage. This is a neighborhood gem tucked away in a quiet part of North Cambridge and worth every moment and morsel!
Our favorite place in the neighborhood - so nice to have a meal out again!
One of the best meals we have had outside of Italy - puts the North End to shame! The owner was very friendly and passionate about the food, everything was fresh and delicious - a great meal and experience. The al fresco dining was perfectly set up for a great night out. Can’t wait to go back and try more of the menu.
Reopening the restaurant after months of only serving take-out. Everyone was on edge. Joy and happiness. It was evident in the food and the smiles behind the masks.
We all feel welcome back.
So glad Grangusto reopened!!! We missed you guys!!!! The new ceci appetizer is to die for, and the pizza is always the best
Great food and great price point. Loved the portion size (not too big, not too small). The braised short rib was outstanding!
Incredible on every way. You’re missing out of you don’t go
Food was excellent we had a real nice red wine as well
Best Italian family restaurant in Cambridge.
Tutto ottimo e il servizio era perfetto!
Great wine selection. Nice Italian atmosphere, nice to have to owner hanging around all night
good food at a good price in pleasant circumstances
Food and service both amazing. Felt like we were in a hole in the wall restaurant off one of the side streets in Rome. Food was outstanding! Will definitely go back.
The people make this place, helpful, pleasant and fun!
Loved everything about this authentic Italian experience.
The restaurant is very cute and cozy for a romantic date night, but the food was disappointingly mediocre. The bottle of wine we got was too expensive for the quality ($45). The homemade pastas were very tasty but the seafood in it was not great quality. Overall I would give 3.5 stars.
Went on a busy Valentine’s Day night. Tables were very beautiful with red roses. Server was clearly rushing us to order and trying to flip tables as fast as possible which was very annoying. He was quite rude. Bread was plain and bland. Caesar’s salad was flavorless. Pasta dishes were okay but expensive for what they were. Overall a disappointment for a place I was excited to explore.
Absolutely fantastic dining experience in every way. It really feels like you walked into a restaurant in Italy, and the food perfectly reflects that ambiance.
The food, service and wine are exemplary . Love to be there whenever I can afford to !
Gran Gusto is a very comfortable place to join friends for dinner. Food and service are great!
Excellent as always. Some of the best Italian food in the Boston area at this hidden gem.
I need gluten free food, and was very happy with my choice of risotto. Server was very comfortable and knowledgeable about my request.
On a Sunday evening, it was busy!! But quiet and great for conversation...
I am looking forward to returning soon!
I would not recommend this restaurant nor will I ever go back. They basically ignored us- didn’t tell us the specials, didn’t get us water and were rude.
Menu was well varied, yet concise. The service was attentive without hovering. it had been a few years since our last visit but we all enjoyed it immensely. We will be sure to return!
Just amazing!!! The pizza is by far the best in the Boston area!
Great food always! And gluten free pasta!
Very pleased by the food quality, price, value and wine list! Would definitely return to this neighborhood gem.
Food was great and reasonably priced for the area. Service was prompt and friendly. Not too crowded on a Sunday night. Highly recommend!
I have been to Gran Gusto dozens of times with young and old diners in my party. The food is delicious and the staff is warm and welcoming. I highly recommend Grand Gusto!
Solid Italian food at reasonable prices. Neighborhood gem
We ordered two vegetarian pizzas. The crust was very well cooked, the toppings were also nice.
We also really enjoyed the Tiramisu that we ordered. The coffee was average.
We'll definitely be back. Everything was delicious, and service was friendly and professional. Great casual dining choice.
The best authentic Italian food around
Very good Italian restaurant. Nice range of dishes. Good wine selection. Great to have in the neighborhood.
The staff was reasonably attentive; bar tender was not present so mixed drinks were not an option.
Main pasta course was superb however the appetizer calamari grilled was ordered but we got fried which was a wee bit over fried so kind of chewy.
Dessert was a chocolate cake with ice cream which was good
Service was terrible. Rude attitude and inattentive. Food was delicious however.
