Love the staff and ambiance and delicious food
Great food, service, and ambiance for a work group lunch or friend gathering.
Great location in the Kendall Square area for business lunches or dinners. Very good food and service, while low background noise and quiet enough for meaningful conversations.
Enjoyed a fabulous meal with friends on Friday night. Great music at the right volume and an airy space with comfortable seating made for a relaxed venue to catch up with friends. Four of us got the Fresh Whole Red Snapper daily special - delicious! - and beautifully presented, the grapefruit alongside added a bright flavor. Will look forward to coming again soon!
Awesome place , very authentic Abruzzi Food from a beautiful town in Italy SULMONA
Highly recommend this place
Good food, fast service, reasonably priced, not too noisy
Great menu, friendly staff, great decor and ambience.
I held my birthday party at Sulmona and it was a great..Its a great, upbeat, lively atmosphere..the interior is very authentic and it feels like you could be in Italy.
We had the seasonal 'Zio' cocktail which I came in especially for and the bartender made it up well!
We also ordered various appetizers , pizza, etc. Everything was very fresh and of optimal quality. Dessert was also delicious..
I would highly recommend this gem for its authenticity and great ambiance!
Had s little reunion with friends early evening during the week. Menu is diverse so everyone should be able to find something to eat. Food was good but not exceptional I sampled fried artichokes, arancini, fried potato, mushroom pizza and chicken parm. All were decent - good wine and cocktail list. We had excellent service. Sound level is high but it was still a good experience and would go back with friends.
We had a great time and loved the food, especially the chicken parmesan and the arancini. There was a fun cocktail list and we tried the Coco.
Sulmona is FABULOUS!!!!! The food was outstanding. The waitstaff very friendly and professional. The cost was just right, in other words it did not break the bank. The decor is wonderful. People go to this restaurant, you will NOT be disappointed!
Bill Nurse (the chef) is the best! His food is Always outstanding.
The place is beautiful, we celebrate Mother’s Day here. The service was outstanding, I think the dinner Menu a lil bit limited (in my opinion) could have more options to pick from. It was a big group so some ppl loved what they’re other some complained, but overall it was good.
Excellent service & food.
Food and service were very good. We were seated immediately even though a little early for our reservation. Live music was good but much too loud for brunch time. We had to yell to each other over the music.
Summons was recommended to us for its authenticity. Food was very, very good. Service was excellent. Very nice ambience. Owner was present and friendly. Sincerely asked about our experience. We will go back.
Stick with the pizzas. We went on a Saturday night. The restaurant is bright, airy and comfortable. The food is just okay. I had the Amatriciana pasta and it was not that great. But the pizzas that my family ordered were delicious.
experience was slightly ruined by obnoxious groups surrounding us. The food was alright, but nothing special. Not the best environment for a date night.
We met friends of ours visiting from Switzerland. Wonderful food!! Great atmosphere! It was a little loud from the train going by but other than that we would definitely return! I loved the special of halibut and my husband loved the slow roasted pork.
Great service and excellent food !!
I come here pretty frequently for business lunches. It's an informal place with excellent and interesting dishes, definitely a step above from the elaborate sandwich menus of other restaurants in the area.
Can get a little noisy but nothing unmanageable. Try the octopus.
Gratuity was added to our check for a party of 7 but the waiter didn’t advise us. If we didn’t notice it was added to the they would have double dipped w/o us noticing.
Our waiter was polite and friendly and the meal was as delicious as always. I will continue to come back to Sulmona!
Unbelievable service! It was pretty busy, yet the food came out in a timely manner. The desert was divine.
Service was excellent, though we were about the only ones in the restaurant for a very early dinner.
Food was good but could've been seasoned a bit more. Good but not distinguished. I do like the restaurant and will return again.
My fiancé and I stopped in for Sunday brunch (we live in walking distance). We did book through open table, but as it was ~ 2 pm and Kendall square the restaurant was fairly quiet (Kendall tends to be pretty dead on weekends). The waiter was excellent - attentive but not intrusive, knowledgeable but not pretentious. My fiancé asked for advice choosing between two brunch options and the waiter gave a detailed and honest comparison of the dishes. I had the smoked salmon eggs benedict (was perfect). Fiance had eggs benedict w/ steak (a special) - overall he enjoyed it (but said he did have a wee bit of gristle). Coffee was good and frequently refreshed. We had a comfortable booth seat. We plan to return to try the dinner menu sometime.
This was the third time I had been to Sulmona and the food continued to wow me! It's solid, delicious and the portions are super hearty. The service was a little nutty this time though.
Our server was fumbling, spilling coffee on the table repeatedly, didn't seem to know the menu very well, offered to put together an egg, toast and piece of bacon for the baby and we ended up with three sides on three plates and an $11 kids meal. At the end, they added gratuity and then got confused about splitting and closing our bill and kept complaining about how terrible the computer system was. It would be great if they offered kids meals...I had heard great things about kids eating at Sulmona - that they brought out pizza dough for them to play with and make little mini pizzas with and didn't really experience that. I'll be back because the food is great (omg, the chicken parm is killer), but will really hope I get a different server next time and they add some kid size options rather than just a build a bear dinner from sides.
Thank you for making it a great birthday reunion get together! Dinner was terrific and we appreciated the dessert!
They fed our table of ten with the best food I have had in months! I want to move to Boston to be closer to this place. Loved it. Thanks for the great service, Chad. - Greg
Food was great. Perfectly sized portions to share.
My son and I had the porchetta for dinner. Although it was cooked well, it lacked flavor. Some herbs or seasoning would have helped
Terrific food and exceptional service - our waiter Chris was one of the best we’ve ever had. The care and attention he took with our daughters nut allergy was second to none. My son (21) summed up the evening when he said, “I’d rather come here for my birthday than anywhere I’ve ever been!”
Great! Enjoyed our time with friends!
Wonderful cocktails and yummy small plates! We enjoyed a special celebration dinner here and were not disappointed. Everything was delicious! Steak coked perfectly! Mini lemony cannolis!
They asked about the birthday but then did nothing.
Everything was great, the atmosphere was awesome and the staff were super friendly and attentive. I had made a reservation not realizing they had high top tables, my mother can’t sit at a high top table so when they brought us to one and I explained, they were very accommodating! The food was really good, only thing was the pasta was a little al dente, but it was still good. Maybe just make sure they know you like it cooked more if you do! 😀 I work near by and there is a serious lack of good pizza so I’m excited to go back for lunch!
Really loved the homemade pasta, meatballs, and canoli!
The porchetta hash was very tasty, the coffee was great and the gelato was a delicious way to conclude our brunch!
Cocktails disappointing - $14 for what amounted to a sugary whiskey sour. Deep fried artichokes had a nice texture but were all grease, no acidity. Pizza was good but not $20 good - dough was fluffy and had the consistency of Stop n Shop premade crust. Burrata was almost perfect - but the green tomatoes that accompanied it were crunchy and astringent.
Overall, OK but very overpriced for what it is.
