I took my friend there for his birthday, and he really liked it. It is a bit noisy though, which some people don't mind.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden GemNot far from Kendall Square , Amelia's Trattoria is a food lovers find off the well travelled path.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFIND IT. EAT IT. LOVE IT!!!!!Any time I am near Cambridge I go to this gem of a restaurant off Kendall SQ. (ish). Polenta and calamari to die for and entrees that are innovative and carefully prepared. This time, I had a grass fed ribeye, grilled and then served with a dash of a wine and thyme reduction that was AWESOME, and my friend had the sweetest, most luscious halibut I've tasted this side of Alaska! The wait staff is attentive and helpful, AND (yes, it gets better!) there is one of the best, most reasonably priced wine lists I have ever had the pleasure to drink my way through! The Chef/Owner, Delio, doesn't take huge mark ups on his wines...more to love!
The only downside? That I am never in town long enough to eat there TWICE during my visits!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDefinitely going back!This was our first time here and we really enjoyed it. It was a block away from the movie theater so we decided to have dinner her before the show. We ordered the mussel appetizer and were pleasantly surprised by both the portion and quality. It was a giant bowl with mussels drenched in a garlic/butter sauce. Delicious! We both ordered up specials for the entree and again, the quality carried over. Perfectly cooked halibut, along with butternut squash. She had a delightful pasta with large scallops. Overall, the experience was great. Recommended for sure!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe meal I had was amazing.The meal I had was amazing. It was one of the specials. I really enjoy this restaurant for dinner because the lunch menu is classic contemporary american cuisine but in the evening they let their chefs have flex their muscles and they sure do. The dishes are amazing and the atmosphere was quiet and enjoyable.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was elegantly preparedThe food was elegantly prepared and very flavorful, the portions were perfect and served in a timely manner.

The dining room is definitely cozy but has a great intimate atmosphere. Staff were knowledgeable, welcoming, and helpful in suggesting drinks and dishes.
