Sulmona Restaurant | Bar

Chicken Parma was burnt to a crisp. Staff was nice about it but the meal should never have made it to our table
My husband and I were very disappointed that veal was not on the menu. I was also disappointed that you do not have angel hair pasta. We feel that any real Italian restaurant should have veal dishes on the menu.
The Boar Ragu here was delicious - great meat, creamy sauce, and tasty pasta. My only complaint would be that it's quite loud, and there could be better separation between the bar and the rest of the restaurant in an ideal world.
A fun night! Great service!
We had yet another great meal here. Our server Fran was friendly and professional. The food was as good as we've had in Italy. Porchetta and authentic carbonara. The ambience is pleasant. Gets louder with more guests, but, not so that you have to scream at each other. Just felt lively. We'll keep coming back.
This was our second time at Sulmona and it was just as good as the first time. We came in from the burbs and it’s atmosphere is fun and service was great! See you again!
Nice menu with lighter summer fare included with the traditional Italian menu.
Food is awesome Italian Mexican fusion and American dishes.. well prepared well presented.. and very fast, the price is a welcome surprise...
(trust me and I'm a miser, you will like it...)
The team of servers are full of smiles and very knowledgeable with regards to the menu. The atmosphere is fun, and relaxing at the same time..
Definitely will be my new favorite spot...
This was my second time back here - hands down the best chicken part in the state
Super great authentic Italian food at good prices. Great atmosphere.
Brunch as it should be! I highly recommend this place for brunch. I go to brunch every weekend so I've been to a lot of restaurants, and this is one of the best! It has that awesome combo of excellent service, reasonable prices, and beautiful tasty food! I tasted the tiramisu French toast, the shrimp & grits special with eggs, the Monte Cristo sandwich, the yellow gazpacho special, bacon, sausage and the Greek yogurt with fruit - they were all gorgeous to look at and a treat to taste. The place is good for conversation except when the Red Line subway trains are going underneath but they pass quickly and add to the charm in their way. The decor is lovely with high ceilings in an Italian theme that includes murals and a motor bike hung from the celling! Parking was easy on the street. If you're looking for a memorable brunch, head to Sulmona!
Ambiance is nice, menu seems great in theory, but food was not very good, especially for the price.
The food was good and the portions were ample, and the service was fine. It was a bit too noisy, and if I were to go back, it might be to eat outside to avoid the din.
10 outta 10. Very welcoming, well run staff and management, food is above average in quality and taste. Menu is excellent!!! Highly recommend...
I've eaten here a couple times now and love it! The food has been fantastic and great service as well. I highly recommend the burrata, it won't disappoint!
Food overall is very good. Cocktail, wine menu provides enough choice.
Our waitress was very attentive and helpful
Decor nicely done.
Compared to downtown Boston Italian restaurants the value is excellent.
I have been here a number of times. Not only are all the staff super friendly and focused on the customer experience, the food is delicious. I really love this place, though, because they are so careful about gluten. As someone with Celiac, I have to be very careful about where and what I eat. I always feel taken care of at Sulmona. In addition, I have taken several undergrads here for lunch meetings, and they have all enjoyed the food, as well. Oh! And the coffee is really great, and they serve it with real cream.
Really, what's not to like? Sulmona has become my go-to place for weekday lunches in Kendall Sq.
I met friends for lunch at Sulmona and almost immediately could not wait to visit again. Service from Sheldon is above and beyond! He is well-informed, patient, attentive, and personable. Score! I had the Sunday Meat Sauce, and it is "to die for." Everything is tender and easily cut with a fork. The sauce is original and delicious. Friends love the Fritto Misto, and I will try that next time. The panini special that day could have used some of the sauce from the Sunday Meat Sauce in my opinion. Not trying to play chef, though...The beer selection also stands out. I love IPA's, and they have some of the best from Maine Beer Co., Aeronaut, Somerville Brewing, and Cambridge Brewing. The atmosphere is friendly, lively, and interesting. The whole experience was just spectacular. The manager came over, and it was clear that the welcoming, family-like vibe comes both from the natural personalities of the staff and from the top. You must go to Sulmona (the restaurant, though I am sure the Italian city is awesome too)!
Delio and Becca Susi have hit it out of the park. The food, ambiance and drinks are amazing.
Good food and ambiance. The only downside was service. Our group agreed that the server was slightly indifferent, at times bordering on rude. I wish that hadn't been the case because other servers who brought food to the table were sweet and good natured. Will go back again and try things that we couldn't!
My family and I went there for my birthday. This wasn’t my first time visiting Sulmona but it definitely was an experience to remember. The service was amazing. Our waitress was very accommodating and friendly. Our meal started with Aperol Spritz’s made to perfection. We had a tasty appetizer, my husband had the Carbonara which was traditionally made with sunny side up egg on top, I had the pasta special which was seasoned grilled shrimp with vegetables and spaghetti, and our son had rigatoni and marinara sauce. Everything was incredible! I definitely recommend Sulmona in Cambridge for any special occasion or even just a casual night out for drinks and appetizers.
Great mean with the family. The porchetta was amazing and may girls loved the pasta. Great atmosphere and wonderful service!
Disappointed after hearing good things. I ordered a panzanella salad and linguine with clams. In the height of tomato season my panzanella was lackluster and any tomato flavor was overwhelmed by cheese (cheese in panzanella? Just what I was thinking). My linguine had no acid to balance the briny clams. My companions seemed happier with the arancini and pasta bolognese. Overall my table was satisfied but with so many options in Cambridge, this place wasn’t worth the effort.
Best pizza I have had in a long time! Additionally, Sulmona had a wonderful atmosphere.
We visited on Sunday at 2 pm and ordered a bechamel mushroom pizza, two side orders of Salmon &a bowl of berries. Food was good and the coffee was ok. They have a good brunch menu that fits most dietary needs. Nice for a long meeting with friends.
Overall a great experience. We were four customers on a business dinner, and we ordered shareable appetizers and desert. We were very impressed that our server informed us that some dishes only had 3 pieces, so sharing among the four of us would be harder, and offered to add a fourth item, so we can share easily.
The food was excellent and the portions generous.
Service was good but the food was just fine. Not bad but not good and way too expensive for the quality, in my opinion. I can make a better pizza at home. The sauce was far too sweet. I expect margarita pizza to have fresh, pure tomato sauce not an overly sweet and overky seasoned sauce.
I am never disappointed when I dine here. Food, service and ambience.
The food we got was good but they were out of many things. Food and several beers. Seems they need to be better about the menu and supply. This was a weekday dinner.
Chose based on convenience and someone's review of porchetta. Actual experience of porchetta was very satisfying. Found a special bottle of Vermentino da Sardegna on list. Really enjoyed the company, food, wine and service. Momentarily concerned the space and music would be too loud, but quickly forgot that concern. Very happy, hope to come back soon and often for more alimenti e vino Italiani.
Fined for the first time and we had an incredible experience.
We had an excellent time. The restaurant was clean , and the staff was very polite , attentive and efficient .
The subway does run underneath close by, which can be disturbing if you are expecting a quite evening , but my family didn't mind because it also had a nice Boston atmosphere. It's also nice if your looking for the Italian experience but my not want the crowds of the Northend, and you can find plenty of parking on the street.
Redline train is annoying and conversation disturbing
The food was really good and the service was friendly. Friend and I shared the Panzanella Salad and marinated olives for apps. We thought the salad was fresh and flavorful. They also put the cheese on the side as we requested. For main courses, we had Linguine with Clams and Chicken Parmesan. Linguine was extremely well seasoned and pasta tasted freshly made. Chicken parm - HUGE portion. Wish I tried it but was very involved with my linguine.
Only drawback was a loud train or something above the restaurant that made a very loud noise every 10-15 min. We couldn’t figure it out, but just kind of laughed it off.
We went to a Free Friday at the MFA and went to dinner after. We had a very enjoyable day in Boston and Cambridge. Restaurant is on a corner and has out door dining and for tables along the wall they large open windows. Only complaint is that the T runs underground right at the area and during rush hour there are lots of trains rumbling through and can get quite noisy. Overall restaurant was nice - we like to share plates and sample the menu and they worked with us. The charcuterie plate was excellent - they pride themselves on knowing how to butcher a pig and they delivered - delicious! We shared a salad, some rice balls a pasta dish and a pizzette - all very good. When we are in the area we will go back.
Salad and cheese plate really good. Entrees not so much. Wines mediocre. Beautiful place. knowledgeable staff.
I'm told I am ineligible to receive points for this reservation. If so, you are ineligible to receive a review.
Great experience. Great waiter. If you dine outside, realize the subway vents allow train noise to overpower any conversation from time to time.
The noise level was a little too high. We had to constantly move around to hear each other.
The food at Sulmona is very good. Especially the pizza! The service on the other hand, especially from the hostess was terrible! The sun was in our eyes and the hostess 1. refused to close the window, 2. refused to let us switch seats and 3. gave us a lot of attitude for even asking. My work colleague actually said "you are not very nice". I won't recommend (or go back to a place) where the hostess is so rude that I'm embarrassed during a business meal.
