I had one of the BEST pizzas I have ever had here (your butternut squash pizza is incredible), and the mac and cheese and drinks were PHENOMENAL. Our waiter saw that it was my birthday on my ID and brought out a free skillet cookie for my birthday! it was DELICIOUS. The salt on top, couldnt get enough! this place is wonderful and i will most certainly be back.

My only comment is i wish the barbie drink was sold at this location!

The Ham and Pineapple and Mushroom and Fontina pizzas were both standouts. Very excellent. Service was very friendly and fast from both the host and waitstaff - hostess was very welcoming. I would recommend this place to anyone who enjoys a good pizza with friends.

Gracious service, interesting, well-prepared food. We made reservations for a "quiet" table on a busy Sunday morning and it was ready for us. Waiters (three at different times) were all polite, thoughtful and efficient. Three of us ordered a "Hot Mess" and each of us loved what we got. But can there be too much bacon? Unbelievably, yes, when added to a plain pizza! Our only "won't do again" from an otherwise great Sunday lunch.

3 people had dinner, 2 thought the pizza was very good, 1 thought it was good. All 3 thought the Mac and cheese was watery and just okay. We all loved ordering 8oz beers, allowing for more experimentation. The appetizers weren’t very creative and didn’t appeal to any of us.

The food here is always great, and the service is just as good. We frequently eat here with our kids without any problems. You have to get the chocolate chip macadamia nut cookie with a scoop of ice cream for dessert ...it’s banging.

The Special Pie (the Reuben) was not good at all because the toppings and cheese were too much for their thin crust and was extremely soggy to eat.

Quality pizza on the whole (you must be ok with black charring on your pizza in order to enjoy it at Area Four. Sticky buns and choco croissants very good. Nice assortment of beers on tap. Popular place - I would encourage reservations. Host was friendly and waitress was provided great service.

Nothing special.
We took a simple margarita pizza and a shaved brussels sprout/kale salad.
The pizza is thin crust, and it was good but not exceptional.
The salad, when mixed with the dressing, was nice. However, it was not mixed well before serving, so part of it did not get the dressing and was somewhat dry.

All, in all, it is a decent spot. Not amazing.

Pizza was soggy and not hot enough despite good ingredients.
Chopped Kale and Brussel sprout salad was fabulous but Waiter forgot to bring it until reminded.
Lighting so low you cannot read menu.
Maybe students have low standards but not good enough for adults dining

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!!
