Ranked #47 of 538 restaurants in Cambridge
Description: Delio Susi, in anticipation of his restaurant’s tenth anniversary, refined both his restaurant’s menu as well as its interior design, to great success. Losing none of his Abruzzi roots, the food is clean but clearly Italian, and a little rustic. The warm and inviting room makes the same statement. Drawing on his architectural background, Susi plays with simple organic materials, like square slate tiles and tabletops, and brown leather tufted banquettes. The use of brick plus copper fixtures contribute to the Italian country/casual feel that serves food and wine to match. Wooden floors and European style open windows for the summer add to this ambiance. And red lamps that hang in bright contrast with the earthy tones during the day, shed a sexy flattering nighttime glow. Amelia’s Trattoria offers a personal and authentic dining experience using top local ingredients infused with the heart of its Italian chef.

During a 2010 visit to Cambridge, we really enjoyed our meal and put Amelia's on our "we've got to go back" list. Well, we did. And, now we wish we hadn't. The food had lost much of the light touch that had made it so enjoyable before. And, the service -- if you aren't one of the local regulars --... More

We ordered mushrooms pappardelle and olives with fennel salad. The salad was ok. The pasta was good but with very few mushrooms. The portion were big. ( enough for us).

We where in the area for a few days from the california central coast (wine county). We're used to bringing our own wine and paying a corkage fee but I guess that's not done in Cambridge. No worries we picked a nice Tempranillo and had probably the best antipasti plate since Rome. I had promised my wife Spaghettis Carbonnara since... More

This is an amazing place. Delicious food, the waitstaff is so accommodating and we loved the ambiance. I would definitely go back - I would love to try it out for lunch.

Yummy! That is what I always say when we visit this restaurant for dinner. It is always delicious for dinner and just as good for lunch. If you are looking for an upscale feeling lunch in the Kendall Square area...you have found your place. And the prices are still reasonable. Great for a business lunch! It is a little snug... More

After a recommendation from a pair of friends with a great track record, we bumped this to the top of our list. We booked a table using Open Table and showed up on time. Immediately I could tell this was going to be tasty and expensive (I was a little surprised on one of those accounts, read on for the... More

Four of us returned to Amelias and are we glad we did. The food was excellent , the service unhurried and the prices very reasonable. This is a place to try when in the area!

A friend and I enjoyed a very nice prix fixe meal at this out of the way local Italian eatery. This isn't the easiest place to find, and parking isn't readily available, but once you make it inside the food is tasty, the service is prompt and friendly and the prices are reasonable. This is an excellent choice for good... More

Recently went for dinner with a party of 6. We checked the website menu and it had a lengthy selection of traditional Italian food. When we arrived the menu had many fewer selections, and most were somewhat exotic. This was disappointing for my teenage sons. We later realized we were looking at the lunch menu online. The website can be... More
