    As always, Area Four serves good pizza. I like chewy and flavorful dough. The service was not prompt.

    Delicious pizza, interesting cocktails, and a good noise level- buzzing but not loud. Try the cultured honey butter on the crust!

    Excellent pizza, solid drink options, quick service. Glad we made the reservation ahead of time since it was pretty busy, but able to walk right to our table. Will definitely come back!

    Went here for a birthday celebration and it was great! We reserved a table for 8 and the table was already ready when we arrived (15 mins early). The waitress was very attentive and the brunch menu was really good. Would definitely come here again.

    Area 4 is a great place no matter what the occasion. This was a work meal where people really enjoyed the high quality, but not extensive draft beer selection (they also have a great can and bottled beer selection). Food is always great, wood fired pizzas, interesting special pizzas, salads are always good. Nice and warm place with the fires going.

    I gave them a review over two years ago and it was not favorable. However after last meal, I have only prise for the restaurant. Great service. Well organized. Greated by management as you come through the door. Staff works as a team to get the food out. The food was great. Garlic knots are to die for. Pizza was rich with flavor. Love the sauce and cheese. We will go back. You should too.

    I never get tired of Area 4 because they have quality pizza, salad and beer. I love the ever changing selection of New England Style IPAs (as well as other beers). Such a great find that they have a high quality selection of beer (but not tons of selection). Always good, warm and fun environment.

    We just had pizza this time. The one we wanted wasn’t on the menu but we were able to customize it. Service was good and well timed. We come here for coffee- one of the best in greater Boston, but I would recommend it to pizza lovers too - fresh and ...just rightly made! PS. Try their coffee and...English muffins - now, those are outstanding!

    The overall ambience of the place is laid-back MIT and tech-bros. The food was pretty tasty although the service was really haphazard - our appetizers came way after our pizza; there was an apology from the server that the kitchen "got mixed up" but no offer to remove the items from the bill. They also ran out of clams for the clam pizza; we were offered a discount to a cheese pizza with a topping which ended up being only one dollar less than the clam pizza would have been full price. A fun place with decent food but a little immature in the service.
