Always delicious

The pizza is always delicious here. Interesting combinations and I like almost all of them. Good salads. I would recommend they add a special or two as the menu hasn't changed in many years. It's great but surprises/innovation are welcome!

We found Cambrdge 1 on Tripadvisor and visited for lunch as we toured Harvard. It was great!! My husband and son had pasta - red sauce with pork and pappardelle and I had a potato and 3 cheese half pizza. So happy that the pizzas were available in half servings. Loved the food as it arrived fast and hot. They... More

This is a great, cozy pizza spot in the heart of downtown Cambridge. Lots of variety with flatbread pizza topping options and a solid wine list to accompany them. A few good salad choices to pick from as well. Snag one of the inner wall booths for a more intimate group dinner.

It's sad when a decent place starts sliding downhill. We've been going here occasionally since it opened and always enjoyed it's consistently decent pizza and salads. Not this time. The pizza was frankly bad and the arugula salad was obviously past it's use-by date. Most annoying was to find a month later that our credit card had been charged more... More

We had a wonderful stay here. The service was good, responsive and fast. The restaurant was a really cosy place. The noise level was just right for us. We had some beer and wine. We went for salad as our starter and two half pizza's as our main. It all tasted really good. A really nice evening.

For two of us, we ordered a whole spinach, artichoke, tomato and goat cheese pizza. Good thing we love spinach, as there was a lot on there. However things are organized in the kitchen, the pizzas come out very fast. The crust is a thin flatbread, which I felt could have been wood fired for a longer time to make... More

Nice ambience. Good pizza with some gourmet options. Friendly service and very speedy. 1/2 pizza serves 1 person. Definitely worth a visit.

We've been here before for dinner but today we tried it for lunch. Also for this moment of the day we can highly recommend it. We were here as a family (2 adults, 3 teenagers). Our kids enjoyed the half size pizza's and commented on the delicious crust. We enjoyed a salad (excellent portion size for lunch). Staff was very... More

This review is long overdue for this great spot right off Harvard Square. A variety of pizzas come in half and whole sizes and I find that the half size is perfect for a light lunch. My favorite is the #1, basically tomatoes (not tomato sauce) and cheese, but it's possible to get add-ons, like chicken. for even such a... More

I have the bib lettuce salad with Gorgonzola cheese and a Dijon vinaigrette followed by a half lobster pizza. The pizza was quite good, although it's not the usual Italian red sauce and goopy cheese with toppings style. Instead: Flatbread and more strategic toppings. I like the room. The staff was very friendly and quick. The location is very convenient... More
