“Best pizza in Boston”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

An unbelievably delectable gem in Cambridge. The tiny yet cozy eatery offers the best pizza outside of Italy. The salads are also noteworthy. Order a second pizza to go before you leave and you'll be glad you did the next day. It reheats well in a convection or toaster oven! My favorites are the #4: bacon, cilantro, potato and dried cranberry pizza and the #22: buffalo chicken pizza.

“A funky little hidden jewel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

This is a funky little hidden jewel. It's a short walk from the Kendall square cinema so perfect for a light meal before or after a movie. They have a nice variety of sandwiches in addition to pizza. It's a no frills atmosphere. They don't load you up with fries or other fattening side dishes. You still have room for popcorn at be movie if you want "fattening"!

“Yummy! Kids loved the pizza too!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012 via mobile

Loved the small-restaurant ambiance, and my two young daughters loved the plain cheese pizza. I had the 9" pizza with artichoke hearts, cilantro, olive oil, and mozz cheese. It was a bit too thin but it was tasty. My husband had the chicken p...p...something sandwich without the bread and found it delicious altho a bit dry. He was disappointed that there was not a gluten-free pizza option, though. In all, give this place a try - it was wonderful!

“Fantastic Pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

We were looking for a great pizza place when we went to visit Boston and were recommended Emma's Pizza by a friend. What a great find! The rosemary sauce was really good - the perfect touch to make the pizza stand out against the rest. And the thyme roasted mushrooms were the best pizza topping I've ever had! If you're looking for really good thin crust pizza - this is your place.
