Always a good pizza

They consistently have served good flatbread pizza for years. Can get loud, but very nicely atmospheric, if you get an empty evening, great for a date.

I've been to Cambridge 1 a few times now, and have to say I love their pizza. I'm a fan of brick oven pizza, and their charcoal grilled approach hits the spot. Among my favorites are the chicken and red pepper pizza, and the potato pizza. The restaurant can get busy for dinner over the weekend, but if you arrive... More

This restaurant just misses for me. Although the pizzas have good ingredients, the balance of flavors always seems off. Pizzas come out bland or mushy (too many soft ingredients). Great atmosphere and beer list but overall I would skip and head somewhere else to get your pizza fix.

Yum. Great food. Nice and friendly staff. Some of the patrons were snotty but that's not the restaurant's fault. Prices very good. Salad, 1/2 pizza, glass of red wine - $30 with tip. Go early as it gets crowded fast. Bar service is good.

Nice thin crust pizzas in the heart of Harvard square. Unique and delicious toppings. Very reasonable prices and nice atmosphere. Try the potato pizza!

Get the Chicken pizza and ask for Sorrel on top - there is nothing so good! The Chardoney goes with this - have 2 glasses.

Decent pizza - not enough rotation on the menu makes it boring on repeat visits.

Is Upper Crust really the best pizza in this city? Cambridge 1 has to be a contender for the title. I checked out the Cambridge location and had a great time. The slices are thin (try the shrimp pie!) and the atmosphere is low key. The TVs are hooked up to one surround sound system while the tables are actually... More
