My boys (17 and 13) and I toured MIT, and needed someplace close to eat quickly so we could go watch the Red Sox play. The student tour guides recommended this place, so we stopped by, blindly, without any research. We had the bacon and clam pizza. It was beyond amazing. The bacon and clam flavors were perfection (seriously), but... More

Cool vibe; busy so booking recommended. Good beer selection. Tasty garlic knots (bread) before the pizza arrived. Great pizza; I had the carnivore and really enjoyed it. Only criticism is that the pizza base was on the thicker side (especially the edges) and I prefer a very thin crust, but the taste more than made up for that!

Area 4 is an excellent place to grab a delicious pizza and drinks on a Friday or Saturday night. The appetizers are also very good. For two people getting a cocktail each, splitting two appetizers and one pizze, the bill was around $50. So not terrible for a popular Cambridge restaurant. The service is always good too.

If you are looking for a delicious pizza this is the place to go! Also try their "garlic knots" served with one of the most delicious tomato sauce I have ever had.

This restaurant has outdoor seating at MIT. The pizza was great. Definitely order the supreme garlic knots. Worth money for sure. Reservations are a good idea as this is a popular restaurant.

The service is quick and the area relaxing. Had the mushroom and fontina pizza as well as the white anchovy pizza. Both were just right! Each bite was crisp and tasty and the cheese just so. Paired with a couple of rosé and enjoyed the afternoon.

Fantastic, creative pizza in a deconstructed venue with an equally fantastic staff. Great selection of beer & wine to boot. This our "go to" for pizza in Cambridge bar none!!

My hubby and I stumbled upon Area Four in search of a good brunch spot. And boy are we glad we did! The staff was friendly and efficient. The coffee was dark, rich and plentiful and the food...oh my! We started with the sticky bun...basically one of the best pecan, cinnamon buns, I've ever had! It's big enough to be... More

Had an office gathering here for about 15 people. Started off with the garlic knots, which was a different take on what you'd expect. Pretty much garlic dinner rolls, covered in cheese and sitting in a small skillet of pizza sauce. I highly recommend! Ordered a variety of pizzas including the "Not Pepperoni" and the "Carnivore." They were all very... More
