Pammy’s is a New American restaurant inspired by the feel of an Italian neighborhood trattoria. Perched between Cambridge’s Central and Harvard Squares, Pammy’s is a cozy yet sophisticated neighborhood destination. For husband and wife team Chris and Pam Willis, who live right up the street, Pammy’s is an extension of their living room. They’ve brought together their love of great food, easy hospitality and chic vibe to create a lively space that is welcoming to all looking for a memorable meal. With dishes that lean heavily on Italian flavors but are not restricted by any rules of the cuisine, the food is unpretentious and delicious. A dual-opening fireplace wrapped in white ceramic, an oversized salvaged communal table designed for side-by-side dining and rich leather banquets are just some of the design elements that make up Pammy’s charm.

We're currently serving a Prix Fixe menu for all reservations. A la carte dining is available for walk-in guests at our bar and in our lounge.

The food wasn't as great as expected! We were very excited and 6 of us had 3 different dishes and were not blown away by anything especially for the price. We also weren't thrilled with the service.

Delicious! Scallops were slightly undercooked for my taste, but the wine/cocktails, brussel sprouts & pasta were wonderful. Quite pricy for one meal, but a fun splurge.

Pammy's is without a doubt one of the best restaurants I have ever experienced.
The food is exceptional, creative and fun. The atmosphere is welcoming and for those of us that live in Cambridge - feels like home. Truly one of the best dining experiences of my life.

Pammy's has excellent food, service, and vibes. While not cheap, the prix fixe menu is definitely reasonable, and it allows you to try many different items. All of our food was high quality, seasoned excellently, and delicious. Pammy's had an energetic, chill atmosphere, which made the dinner all the more pleasant.

100% still our favorite restaurant in the city and the place my GF and I choose to celebrate any time we can find an excuse to celebrate something. They're always amazing. Food is a top meal for the year for me every time we go for the last five years. Thank you for making our anniversary so special once again <3

Our server, Michelle was amazing! The service was absolutely perfect, and food recommendations spot on. My wife is GF and Michelle did such a great job breaking down the menu for us, and it was a huge winner that we were able to have any of the pasta dishes gluten free. The cocktail list was very original without being pretentious, and the two glasses of wine we had were incredible, especially considering their price point. We will definitely be back with friends!

The three of us tried 9 different dishes and tasted each other's food. Everything was outstanding. The server was just the right amount of attentive and his recommendations were helpful. I loved sitting next to the fireplace. The atmosphere was really nice overall. The place is pricy, but the dishes were like nothing I could make at home. We would definitely go again. I've already told my friend she must go!

What a fun and wonderful experience. Four of us "spread out" across the menu, so got to taste many more than 3 of the offerings. All of them were inspired, unique and delicious. I look forward to going back!
Thanks to the fine staff.

I've been wanting to try this popular restaurant for some time and was thrilled to finally get a reservation. The food , service and ambience did not disappoint! The three course experience had varied choices and is highly flexible in its selection approach. We were not rushed and servings were ample to make us perfectly full by the end. We both tried the wine tasting to accompany each course. Each pairing was spot on perfect though I probably wont order it again due to the cost associated with what I thought was a bit skimpy pour. The cannoli dessert looked beautiful and was described deliciously but was a bit underwhelming in taste. The cappuccino however, as with most of the rest of the dining experience overall, exceeded expectations. Their "covid protocols" made me feel safe in general though one suggestion would be to require proof of vaccinations for indoor seating. I will definitely look forward to returning when we are looking to splurge on a wonderful dinner again in the future!

The restaurant is very pretty and the food is innovative. The wine list would be improved if a few classic wines were added. It is a little far reaching on the eclectic side.

This was our first visit to Pammy's and we will certainly be back. The food was spectacular. I'm a vegetarian and found plenty of options. The squash agnoletti was spectacular, the pasta delicate and the filling luxurious. The mushroom toast special was amazing, the creamy mushrooms topped with paper thin slices of black truffle. My meat-eating companions raved about the pork chops and the oxtail pasta. Our server was friendly and exceptionally helpful in our choice of wine. The noise level is pretty high with cheerful people thoroughly enjoying their dinners.

Pammy’s came highly recommended to us. Although we were not sure of what to expect, the GM Ryan took a great deal of care and pride in explaining the culinary experience that is Pammy’s. The food is absolutely stunning both in presentation and flavor, nearly impossible to put into words.. The service was attentive and the ambiance is warm and beautiful. A wood fire is kept going in the dining room through the night, which is perfect for a winter evening dining experience. Highly recommend Pammy’s.
