“Good pizza, not too crowded”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

On the way to the A.R.T. we needed lunch and went to Cambridge 1 at the suggestion of our friends who live in Cambridge. Everywhere in Harvard Square looked packed so we were grateful to go into this oasis of quiet with really interesting pizza. We had the spinach and artichoke heart which was to die for and the lobster and corn which was surprisingly bland. We also had an arugula salad which was fine but truly just that...a pile of arugula and some shave parm....not everyone at the table was so psyched.

“Great food... If you don't mind rodents.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

The food and service was great. However, We could not wait to get out when we saw MICES with an S running around. When we mentionned it, no one seemed too surprised or cared too much. Stay away!!!!

“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.
