Boutique interesting pizza

Boutique Pizza place. It has big tables and is great for going with more than a couple. I've had many business lunches there and the pizza really is very good. They are also big.

We stopped in for a simple dinner on a weekday around 7:30. No wait and had great food, and great service… all for a reasonable price. What could be better! Had a draft beer, shared an iceberg wedge and a whole Portobello mushroom and onion pizza.

A pizza joint with an exceptional flair. The food was exceptional, the service was perfect, and the atmosphere was Harvard Square interesting (Ie different and fun). We had a most enjoyable meal at a reasonable price.

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

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!

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.
