• Pizza Bar • Cambridge
Booked 11 times today
Parties 20+ will be subject to a table minimum of $25/person per hour.The foundation for the pizza at Stoked Pizza Company comes from meticulously studying the ingredients and techniques used to produce our favorite classic pizza styles and highlighting the strengths of each in what we make. We prefer a crust that is soft and light on the inside with a crisp outer shell that can stand up on its own. We want our ingredients and topping combinations to provide an explosion of flavor. To achieve this we use extremely hot ovens along with carefully researched dough formulations, tomato varieties, and cheese blends, sparing no expense and taking no shortcuts.

    Really delicious, creatiive food. Service was extremely pleasant and efficient. I was welcomed as a solo diner, which should be a matter of course but sadly is not the case everywhere. I have marked the ambience lower than the food and service because it was extremely noisy. Being by myself, I happily read my book, but I can’t imagine having a conversation with a companion, and by the time I left, my ears were ringing and my nerves were frayed from the din. Instead of pumping out loud music, they should look to install some sound-dampening features, because that low-ceilinged space magnifies all noise terribly. And I didn’t like the music. I would go back, but only as a solo diner because when I go out with friends, we want to be able to have a quiet conversation and hear each other without shouting.

    This was lunch with a friend. I arrived a couple of minutes before opening at 11:30 and waited outside the door. Exactly on the dot, a hostess opened the door, gave me a big smile, walked me to her desk, and made me feel very welcome. She asked if I wanted to eat on the patio as I had requested. When I did, she took me to my favorite table and seat there. I was almost immediately greeted by our server, Paul, who could not have been more delightful or more attentive. As I left, the same hostess wished me a great day with a huge smile. I felt very blessed. Oh, by the way, in between the food was terrific and the service was even better. My friend ate more than double what she intended ... because it was so delicious. I have been coming to Harvest since it opened, and I've never had the equal of this experience ... although I have had many terrific ones. Thanks to one and all!
