Great neighborhood Italian restaurant.
Hands down best food in the area, besides Sulmona of course. The service was beyond perfection. Every time the servers approached the table they had a smile on their face! The food came in a timely manner and was warm and delicious. I would eat here everyday if I could! My husband and I enjoyed the sweet pea arancini, calamari, lobster ravioli special, steak frites, tiramisu and homemade vanilla gelato. We can not wait to go back again!
The decor is wonderful, warm, intimate, attractive. It feels like being in Europe. The food is delicious, with a variety to accommodate everyone, and the service thoughtful, pleasant and unobtrusive. A very nice way to spend a couple of hours,
Great home made trattoria style food including homemade pasta and nice salads.
A nice quiet little bistro. Excellent ribeye steak...a very nicely done grilled salmon. Friendly, prompt service. Small place. Quiet.
Many times at this lovely trattoria, and always happy with all ingredients. However, our last experience was more minimalistic in terms of offerings around each dish + my Vongole were not that good (freshness + cooking itself). I would stick with strong and steady classics toward the veggie and meaty sections of the menu.
Until our next trial! Overall, recommended!
Sweet little restaurant with amazing food. The arancini are not to be missed! I’m still dreaming of them. I went with friends and have been here with coworkers in the past, would be a good date spot.
Very good food. High quality ingredients. A bit tight and very noisy. Great for social , but tough for business discussions.
Food was delicious, portions were very generous, service was outstanding, friendly, informative but not overbearing or the least bit snooty. Helped in recommending dishes and also assisted in wine choice. We only shared an appetizer and had our main courses, but were way too full to attempt dessert, so cannot comment on that.
Ambiance was very nice, restaurant is small and intimate, but never felt crowded or too noisy, despite eating on a Saturday evening. Our reservation was at 6pm, strongly recommend making advance reservations as the tables filled up by 7pm.
Will definitely be back for another evening there, to try more stuff from their menu.
Very disappointed. The disappointment started even with the bread that was served cold. The Pinot Noir tasted odd. The short rib Ragu was not what it used to be. Seafood pappardelle special was satisfactory.
The food and wine were wonderful. The waitstaff were excellent. My only complaint is that they have one table too many. They were squeezed so tightly together that I actually could not pull out my chair more than three inches. We had to push our table forward in order to sit down. Everything we ate was delicious!
One of our favorite restaurants but they seemed off their game tonight. One main of wild mushroom pasta with chicken was delicious. Other Main of salmon and fettuccine had no flavor - bland, under seasoned, swimming in a pool of tomato and oil - unpleasant. Not asked if we wanted black pepper and when we asked, got an old-fashioned pepper bottle with old pepper. Asked for Parmesan and received a cup of ‘shop bought parmesan’ worst meal at Amelia and a disappointment to a special evening.
It was a slow cold night, we were able to seat 6 people with a 45 minutes advance on the reservation. everyone had a delicious meal and commented that they would definitely return. We were able to park right across the street at the metered spaces. Very nice Montepulciano for $41.00
We are never disappointed at Amelia’s. The food is always delicious. The staff is always friendly and attentive. The theatre is nearby so it makes for a perfect movie dinner night!!
One if our favourite restaurants.
Great food...small and quiet so our large party could easily chat
Great little spot in a Cambridge I had the Pasta Norma, which was delicious. Waiter recommended adding meatballs and they did not disappoint. Would definitely recommend.
I was still eating my starter when the main dish was already brought to the table. It all felt very rushed. The food was ok. I had the grilled octopus as a starter and I really liked it. As a main dish I had the ravioli of the night, which were alright - they used to be much better.
Fantastic food. The staff seemed overwhelmed but were very friendly.
Delicious lamb shanks!
Would frequent again and recommend to friends
Live the atmosphere! Very friendly, intimate, but lively. Good food, too! Loved the apps.
All the staff was amazing front the wan who
Greeted us to the bartender and our server Lucas provided the best service we have had in a long time . Great experience, food was impeccable. We look forward to visiting again
It was really nice! Great service and delicious food!
I haven’t been to Amelia’s Trattoria for years. After tonight’s excellent dining experience, I’m asking myself what took me so long.
Fabulous loved it. Great food. Great service. Great ambiance.
Greatly enjoyed the food and wine. Good selection and good recommendations.
The service was very good, kept water glasses full
Smaller, but comfortable.
Their connection to open table wasn’t working so they didn’t see our reservation. The only place to sit and eat was at the bar. However, the staff was very professional, helpful and accommodating. The food was very good. The service was a little slow. Again, the food was very good.
The delicious meatball appetizer was a testament to their Italian heritage.
Great ambiance although note that it is very small and unable to accommodate large groups.
First of all, the food was delicious. If you want amazing homemade pasta, this place has got it. That said, our table was not ready for the time of our reservation, so if you are on a tight schedule, this might not be the best option. However, we did receive a complimentary calamari appetizer due to the wait, which was very nice. The restaurant is small, and the tables are quite close together. The table behind us asked if we could scoot our chairs in, but we really couldn’t. We were pressed up right against the people behind us on the other side, and sitting very close to the table. So not the most comfortable way to dine, but the food was truly delicious.
chicken was cold, pink/raw inside...not cooked enough and I felt lucky that I didn't get sick from eating the amount I did before I realized it. Nothing special.
If you like polenta this is the place. The noise level is moderate. Reservations are suggested
Very nice staff and food was great
An under rated gem near Kendal Square. Service is great people are friendly and attentive food is very good.
The gnocchi was amazing. Good salads and friendly atmosphere.
A wonderfully intimate neighborhood restaurant, with exceptional food, fantastic service, and lovely ambiance, in the middle of the MIT/biotech cluster in Cambridge. We shared the octopus and the arugula salad with Gorgonzola and pears as appetizers. I had the roasted eggplant with pasta as a main dish. All dishes were outstanding. The cocktail offerings were also great; including a white negroni (made with gin, Suze and Lillet), which was excellent.
I loved this restaurant. Everything was well prepared and the service was excellent. I will return.
As usual, very very good!
A quiet birthday for a friend. Intimate and delicious. The brick pressed chicken was incredible.
Food and service was excellent as always!
A really rare example of Italian food in Boston (not US Italian, real Italian)
