I really love this place. Hidden behind the sheer curtained store front lies a warm and festive restaurant and bar. My friend and I sampled the menu from top to bottom and were not disappointed. I loved the hearty Fruits de Mer and the veggie skewers whereas my friend loved the fried tomato ball. Our server knew the menu inside... More

From the great cocktails and excellent bartenders through to the wonderful desserts, this small plate (not tapas) restaurant is delicious. You can't go wrong ordering. But the tuna cornets are a don't miss dish. Also watch for a long wait if you don't have a reservation

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
