First time to have their brunch. We were amazed by their french toast. So tasty! We sure will bring friends to have brunch in Area 4.

Made a reservation for New year's Eve, but nobody let us know they'd be closed. Showed up on time to a darkened restaurant. Would have been ok except that nobody from the restaurant ever attempted to apologize or offer an explanation for the oversight.

麻州劍橋市(Cambridge MA) 的 (Technology Square) 附近的創意窯烤比薩餐館 (Area Four), 餐館堅持使用當季在地食材, 兼顧美食與環保, 並以比薩麵團發酵30小時以上而自詡; 內部挑高走工業風(industrial interior), 完美融入當地MIT風格; 筆者一行人先來前菜 (Hot Mess Mushroom), 小鑄鐵鍋裡炒鮮菇墊底, 吸飽精華的厚片吐司置中, 兩片吹彈可破的太陽蛋再舖上; 接下來選擇的創意比薩是: (Breakfast Pizza): 類似西式蛋包(omelette) 但卻內餡外翻, 還有兩個待爆漿荷包蛋, 應該是要蛋黃塗比薩? 以及 (Cherrystone Clam Bacon): 豐富的蛤肉加培根塗上類似照燒醬的蛤肉醬; 筆者選的IPA* 也是來自在地麻州南邊的城市(Canton MA), Melcher Street IPA, 啤酒花選的創意, IPA 充滿類似鳳梨西瓜桃子的風味, 優質搭配窯烤比薩!!

The pizza is great and the atmosphere is fun. Good for family night out with your teenagers and their friends. We tend to go on the early side 5-7pm because it can get very loud.

Big praise for Area Four for using local ingredients in delicious creative dishes. We drove in from the north just for brunch and it was worth every mile. We'll be back soon so I can dive into the clam and bacon pizza! We'd be five stars across the board, but our server missed some basic steps, the first being that she didn't know the muffin of the day. Coffee was cold and that's always a bummer unless you order iced coffee of course. Love the vibe!

Hands down best wood oven pizza I’ve ever had in my life!!! I can have their pizza all day everyday, I usually order pizza margheritta that comes with 2 cheeses and basil and I add to mushrooms, sometimes I add mushrooms and olives. Also their Mac and cheese is absolutely amazing, the cheese is real cheese not some crappy stuff you get in a box that tastes like cheese. For sure I would recommend this place to many many people.

Definitely go for the pizza it’s delicious. The brunch was ok but the egg options - only sunny side or frittata are limiting. Also, our overall experience did not contribute to the meal - it took a long time, items were forgotten and mistaken. I appreciated that they took a number of things off the bill, but I would’ve preferred a nice brunch. We will likely go again but not with a group or for brunch.

Im sure that this has been said before but BEST PIZZA EVER. No doubt the very best I have ever had. So many interesting combinations. Prices seem a little high till you taste it food then your just so happy at how good it tastes that you could care a less that its a bit pricey. Downside? ok its noisy very high energy. Service is good not great, they bring you what you ask for quickly and without fuss, if you want to feel pampered go someone else. If you want the best pizza of your life, come here.

Area Four is one of my top picks for pizza in Boston. The pizzas are delicious (they always have a great special seasonal), great wine, beer, and cocktail selection. And that skillet cookie is the perfect ending to dinner, every time. Area Four can be a little loud, but that's never gotten in the way of me enjoying many great dinners.

The pizza tasted good, but was soggy in the middle and burned on the outside crust. You'd think they'd have that figured out by now. They have good beer and a nice outdoor seating area.
