“Classic college hangout”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

We had lunch here after taking the T from Boston to Cambridge. The menu offers a variety of pizzas, a few pastas and salads. Obviously, a favorite for students, my husband had the lobster pizza and loved it. It featured generous chunks of lobster, together with corn, green peppers on thin crust ($14.00). He had it with beer on tap. I went for the pasta bolognese, which was nothing out of the ordinary but had a good tasting sauce., The meal was more than adequate to satisfy our hunger. Would like to try another pizza next time as this seems to be their main event. Just down the street from the Square.

“special pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

arugula and fontina cheese - never would have dreamed it. absolutely delicious, thin crust.
nice atmosphere. TVs on the wall. a little loud. but still a family place. only beer and wine, no hard liquor, but that works with the pizza theme. And you can just come for a drink at the bar. they do takeout too.

“Valhalla for thin-crust devotees!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

This is really one of the very best pizza destinations for those of us not near NYC. A crowded, modern and lively place w. still relatively prompt service. Order the spinach and artichoke pie, always the big winner. We also enjoyed a lobster and chile-based pie a few months back along with a scandalously vibrant steak, blue-cheese and watercress combo. Numero uno for thin crust fans on both sides of the Charles.

“Good pizza - and a good mid-week spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012 via mobile

Really good pizza - you can eat half and half. Because of the proximity to Harvard this is a good place for tourists to go mid-week as it is still busy and has an atmosphere.

“Always enjoy this establishment, easy going, trendy and delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

Never disappointed with the menu, service and atmosphere. Eating at the bar or dining at a table it great. Staff is knowledgeable about the entrees and pizzas. Very close to everything in Harvard Square. Great spot to grab a quick bite late at night or mid day for a late lunch!
