About Amelia's Trattoria
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.

Amelia's Trattoria Ratings and Reviews
A lovely little restaurant tucked into an unsuspecting block of Cambridge. We really enjoyed our cocktails and found our food good (but surprisingly sweet for pasta). Small salads were perfect and a nice compliment to the pasta. Prices were reasonable for the quality and taste. I've already recommended it to friends and plan to bring my partner there soon. Make sure you have a reservation for busy nights.
Went there spur of the moment after I drove by and saw the name (which was the same as my wife's). Very pleased at the delicious Italian food and nice wine pairing. I had the bolognese ragout paired with the Sangiovese. Perfect combo for a winter evening. We will be back.
Amelia's is a family favorite in Kendall Square. While Boston's North end has a huge Italian scene, it is harder to find authentic Italian in Cambridge. Amelia's is a gem -- small, cozy, perfect for a winter night or a summer afternoon. Convenient location for a pre- or post- movie meal at Landmark Kendall Cinema. Some of the best pasta I've had -- ask for their Carbonara (on their 'secret menu' it's always available even if not on their regular menu). Not a great place for a large group, but great for a celebration of 6 people or fewer.
Amelia's is a neighborhood gem, providing a cozy festive atmosphere that serves the Kendall Square theater community and the high-powered intellectual, technology fueled clientele adjacent to MIT. It is a small restaurant with great service and wonderful food, and good wines available at reasonable prices. I make an effort to stop in whenever I visit the Boston-Cambridge area!
This small restaurant feels like a rustic Italian trattoria with only a few tables and a half-dozen seats at the bar. There is nothing fancy about the decor, but it has the charm of a favorite neighborhood spot. The food is excellent -- all hand-made pastas and carefully prepared dishes. The cocktails are also good. The staff is friendly and attentive. We would definitely return.
The only "just okay" choice were the mussels appetizer. The polenta with shrimp was out of this world! My husband had a wonderful rack of lamb; one in our party of three had the home made paparadelle with mushrooms -fabulous; and I had the squash gnocchi which I have had before and ADORE. We had a blackberry sorbet for dessert. The Washington State Sauvignon Blanc (can't remember the name) was fantastic also! The ambiance is just great and our waiter was terrific (don't know his name either).
lucky for me i can walk to this local haunt and enjoy lunch, dinner or take out. the staff is incredibly nice and well informed, they even noticed may comment when making a reservation and addressed it! very pleasing. I almost always get the same thing and am satisfied with it - spaghetti bolognese. with a lovely red wine - the evening goes fine! I'll be back.
Very tasty and comforting meal. I really enjoyed the atmosphere, it was lively without being loud and the small scale of the restaurant really suited me. Plus I enjoyed the affordable wine selections, because while I enjoy great wine good wine at decent prices is even better.
Food not up to a previous visit. Veal was Mediocre because poorly seasoned. Good ingredients and portions The service was the real problem. Had only one sever and one busboy. It's a small place but major errors. Had to ask 3 times for bottle of wine we ordered which took 15 minutes to get. Busboy cleared all but one setting and then didn't come back for it until dessert was served 15 minutes later. Disappointing after a very good first visit. Off night?
Smallish corner trattoria minutes away from the high tech cluster around MIT. Excellent food, service with a smile and a rare find. The menu is small but the food is delicious and the experience is one to be enjoyed. Besides the fantastic entrees of seafood dishes with home made pasta, we had one of the best tiramisu desserts I've tasted in a long time. We will definitely go back.
I have been to Amelia's Trattoria twice, and have enjoyed myself each time. The tables are typically for small parties of 2-4 people, and it's a great spot if you want delicious food while actually being able to hear your friends. The waitstaff are incredibly nice and make you feel like you're dining with family.
