Great place with a diverse menu. Highly recommend.
I enjoyed the food here a lot! We were treated with the calamari app for agreeing to move tables after being seated and that was pretty standard. We then ordered a Caesar salad (surprising it just comes with anchovies and the waiter didn't ask if we wanted them) which had a good lettuce combo and then the grilled octopus, so yummy, and the Piave cheese, tasty hard cheese similar to Parmesan I thought. For dinner we split the lobster pizza which was amazing!! I would recommend the food and atmosphere here but offer a warning that the service was pretty lacking in that we placed our order and then were pretty much left alone for the entire meal which is fine for chatting but we could of used another round of drinks/more water during the meal.
This was our 7th visit. Love this restaurant. Excellent service. Excellent wine menu.
Average, across the board. Food was average, service was good but not great by any stretch. It's all just average.
Have had 2 different business lunches here and really enjoyed it both times. Energetic but not too loud, service was fantastic and food was very good. Nice options for appetizers and lunch entrees. Great central location.
Specifically enjoyed a very good salad; everything was fresh. Also recommend the Meatball and calamari appetizers.
Went for the first time last night and ate at the bar. I liked everything about this place. Pizza was yummy. Chicken Parm was good but even better after I asked for some extra sauce. The bar staff was very friendly and attentive. I liked the ambience too.
Food is always delicious (love the pizza!) and the service is great; love the atmosphere and décor. Great for date night or family dinner night. Very nice, helpful and hard-working staff.
Sulmona is a great jewel. The food and service are outstanding. The decor and ambience are vibrant and fun. Love the nod to Salmon, Italy with the arched structure over the bar. It's worth the drive!
Friday night in Cambridge, still a good number of people around but not too many. Great for a 3-4 people, can still hear and talk, but not hear everyone else. Everyone liked the food, the cocktails and the wine we chose. Discerning guests used to high end food really liked it for their first time.
Our group of 5 had an early, relatively dinner (4:30) before a seminar (6:00). The restaurant's decor was interesting and appealing; the waiter was friendly, helpful and added to the experience; the food was excellent (I had the Wild Boar Ragu); splitting the bill into 2 parts, one for 4 people and one for 1 person was no problem. The prices were on the high side, and the noise level rose as the restaurant filled up--but we would recommend Sulmona and will go again ourselves.
We were there for a business meal. Service was great and the food was very good. They are always very attentive to the number of pieces in shareable dishes/appetizers (to match the number of diners, if the standard size is not enough; not free, but good to have the option and flexibility).
The only negative is the absence of a coat rack/hangers. During the winter keeping the coats at the table can make the seats feel very crammed, especially when sitting at a booth. Their booths then to be small.
I brought relatives for dinner on Sunday night. They liked the casual vibe with really good food. Service was super-attentive and responsive to some dietary restrictions. Nice feel in the room - lighting, openness, noise level. One issue: cocktail was weak and too sweet. A bourbon shot to fortify it cost $10.
My favorite restaurant in the Greater Boston Area - food is always incredible (best brunch food in Cambridge in my opinion), the interior is really cool, cocktails are amazing and even the playlist for the background music is good. Really reasonable prices, too 🙏🏼
Celebrated my birthday with family. Ordered many small plates, all delicious. From Caesar salad, antipasto items, arancini etc. I couldn’t say enough about the magnificent food and wine selection. Wonderful ambiance, light music could be heard, but not at all interfering with our conversation. Can’t wait to go back.
My first lunch at Sulmona. it was lively, full of people (make a reservation !) Will be back...
Everything was mediocre- pet peeve, the various cheese we had including Burrata were ICE cold— and waitress seemed harried and not knowledgeable. The kitchen was clearly busy and she told us she couldn’t take any special orders because of that (special order meaning my friend asked if she could order a half portion of pasta or could she have a whole portion but just have half boxed up before it got to her because she is on a diet) and she she communicated it in a way that was not particularly apologetic. It was very expensive for what we got both food and service wise. I would not go back.
All was good except we asked for a booth when making reservations for 2. When arrived we were told booths are used for larger parties, even though the whole time we were dining, the booths sat empty. I would have liked to use the booth.
Nice find right in MIT
Cutting edge decor, good solid menu, including outstanding pizza, but not ideal for a business meeting - far too noisy.
Lively spot with delicious modern Italian fare...fun place for group dining. My only critiques- less pork on menu please!!!! And a kids’ menu would be great!
Nice atmosphere, excellent food and great service. Quality Italian in a great aetting
My wife has family from Sulmona! Your food is authentic to the region and consistently good, especially the porchetta, and the service is wonderful; friendly and respectful. We've been here about 10 times, and each time, bring someone new to introduce them to the restaurant, and we will most definitely continue to do so!
Fun girls dinner! Great music - really good food - service over all was good, our waitress was a little too good at letting us have space, plates etc were always cleared / table wiped down in at speedy pace between courses.
we arrived and were greated by a very friendly hostess. Our server was incredible, and next to the amazing food, part of the 5 star review. I had the arugula salad and the octopus which were perfection. Our server was attentive but also extremely intuitive on our needs for conversation.
Outstanding service. My date arrived well before I and was seated with courtesy and without a problem. Our waitress and the captain of the staff were supremely attentive, with the latter showing executive capacities.
The cioppino, my dish was spot on! Savory, redolent with fresh seafood brininess. My date really enjoyed her grilled fish. As well, our primo, arrosticini and panzerotti were damned good.
As always, the service, ambience, and most importantly, the food were exceptional. We tried menu items we had not ordered in the past plus one of the specials. All, perfect. My sister who lived in Italy for a period of time gave Sulmona a big thumbs up for authentic and carefully prepared Italian cuisine.
Had a great brunch there, there were very accommodating for our baby as well
Fantastic Dinner with our family. Our waiter was hilarious and the food was delicious
Great service, accommodated our diet requests, friendly and attentive. Food was very good, just wished they had greater variety of pasta dishes...for lunch it was only one...
Had an excellent meal here. The restaurant is very open and comfortable. Definitely coming back!
Went for brunch food was awesome and service impeccable. Can’t wait to go back for dinner.
Fantastic food!!! Service was great!! Brando did a great job!! Can't wait to visit again!!! Definitely recommend the rib eye!!!
Our guests truly enjoyed the food and atmosphere! Thanks
Very pleasant atmosphere and great service with nice people. Manager was very very nice to us when there was a bit of confusion about a specific dish.
Excellent Meal !! Creative dishes... options of small plates to share. Excellent service ... Best grilled octopus ever!!!
We thought the food was carefully prepared-my short rib was delicious! And the service was EXCellent !! Very well trained and pleasant staff
Recommended.to us. Glad we came there.
Food was fantastic but our server seemed to be in a rush to turn tables. He kept showing up every few minutes to take the order for entree and also asked me if he could clear my appetizer since the main dish was ready while I was still working on my meal . Then he cleared my friends plates and left my entree place setting next to me since I was still working on my app. The service was poor and disappointing- we definitely felt very rushed . The food was amazing though.
I go to sulmona all the time, it’s my favorite restaurant in cambridge
This is my second visit and it was just as special this time around. I actually had a special request that they were able to fulfill. The Sunday Meat Sauce is one of the best meals I have ever enjoyed! This time I sat at the bar. The service was great. I plan to return with friends and family over and over. The beer selection is not expansive, but their offerings are outstanding. I enjoyed the Maine Beer Company Lunch IPA almost as much as the Meat Sauce. Great!
