Before even talking about the food and the choices, the second you step into Cuchi Cuchi you know you are going to have a fun time! The owners go all out from the decor to what the watistaff and bartenders wear. Its bordello, meets the 1920's meet grandma's attic! The waitstaff are dressed from corset tops to gorgeous flapper dresses.... More

A little gem. The food is varied and much like tapas but larger portions. Sharing is what it is about.

All house recommendations: Strawberry Basil Cocktail, Fruits de Mer & Bracioletta Ripiena di Maiale; simply amazing! The Fruits de Mer comes in this wonderfully heavenly tasting shrimp/brandy/cream sauce that brings up the flavors of the shrimp, scallops, oyster & lobster in such a ridiculous wonderful way. It is without a doubt, one of the best placed I've ever eaten. Service... More

The dishes are so much more. Portions are large, sharing large. Very hard to choose from their menu so have everyone at your table chose 2 different ones and share. We had a table of 15 people and more than enough food. The food is wonderful and a very entertaining dining experience. The drinks are very good and the wait... More

We really enjoyed the atmosphere as it had the décor of the 1920's and the "flapper's". Waiters and waitresses were in 1920 period clothing. The food was wonderful and we shared small plates. I must say this is not a cheap place and in fact it was an expensive night out.

Another Boston/Cambridge restaurant completely over-rated. Lovely setting and friendly staff. Service was a bizarre experience and slow. Being overly friendly, doesn't equal good service. Took an age to get bread and get served and we were forgotten a few times. Menu looks great but food is a let down. It just passes but for the price, should be a lot... More

Food is delicious and drink are amazing, tthe waiters are professional and friendly, their outfits are so cool and in general this restaurant provides a great experience, but be ready to open your wallet because food is expensive and portions are tiny.

This restaurant is so distinctive and unusual. The menu is extremely creative; the food is elegantly presented and the food is exquisite. My son is a foodie who knows how to pick great restaurants. I got to take him here for his birthday, and we were both thoroughly pleased. We shared the following: White Gazpacho ( a delicious cold cucumber... More

but I like the description by another reviewer as "international small plates" an eclectic atmosphere and an eclectic collection of dishes from around the world. I thought it was a bit overpriced given the portion sizes. the nice thing about the variety of foods is that if you don't share, then there is something for everyone. For those of you... More

Great quirky atmosphere in this restaurant. There are many delicious small plates, and an interesting and inventive cocktail list. Maybe a little pricey but the quality of the food and the great atmosphere are worth it for a special treat. The staff are dressed in 20s ‘burlesque’ outfits e.g. corsets. We had a reservation and they had even called us... More
