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.

Pasta is always deliciously prepared with a generous amount of beef. Beet salad was pleasantly crunchy with almonds and good amount of goat cheese.

Our favorite restaurant in the Kendall Square area. The food is always exceptional, the feeling intimate, delicious wines, the staff friendly, helpful yet professional. A unique find ..a haven away from a noisy crazy world.

It's a very intimate setting, with a nice menu. We had two salads, split an entree, and an appetizer. The soup of the day was loaded with seafood, but not as spicy as we had hoped. However it was delicious. All the portions were generous. Wait staff was attentive, but not overbearing.

Never disappointed here. Found it by accident several years ago and visit 2-3 times a year. We like the coziness of the place, the staff is always friendly and helpful and the food is always awesome. Our only "negative" observation is that the menu hasn't changed for some period of time, although the specials generally give some additional options.

I have eaten at Amelia's three times now and I am convinced that it is my favorite Italian restaurant in Cambridge. The food is excellent; the dishes are well thought out and properly portioned, and delicious. Pricing is right on point, and the staff do everything they can to make your experience enjoyable and special. I love the small size, as it makes every patron feel special.

Food was excellent. Service was good but could be better. Out of Disaronno on a Saturday night. Overall, the food, ambiance, location, and night was great! We will be going back for sure!
