We've been coming here for 5 years. The food and atmosphere is always consistent. Love their pizzas and salads. Jeff runs a great restaurant in close proximity to MIT and the Kendall Sq theater. He's got loads of experience. We look forward to seeing him...More

Emma's is my favorite pizza place. The thin crust pizza with a variety of fresh topping choices never fails to please. I suggest ordering more than you want so you can take it home to eat cold in the morning (my favorite dinner and breakfast)....More

We were staying in an Airbnb nearby and this was a nearby neighborhood restaurant. All tables were full at about 8:45 on a Monday night, so we sat at the counter. They fill up when the nearby movie theater lets out, so plan accordingly. Very...More

The pizza here is a thin crust, a very thin crust, but surprisingly not cracker like; almost like a Neapolitan that was worked to a whisper, rather than a more doughy platform. The pie we ordered was light in all its topping: sauce, cheese, garlic,...More

One of the best pizza places I know. Excellent thin crust pizza. The service could be a little more attentive. Overall I highly recommend this place.

We found out that Emma's will deliver to Cambridge, which was super-convenient for us! The delivery guy showed up right on time, with our four pizzas (he carried them on his bike!). The pizzas were really nice: we ordered the smaller size so we could...More

Emma's was recommended by friends. I was traveling on business (eating alone) so I wanted a place that was "neighborhood" but not too noisy. I arrived at 7 and there was no hassle getting a table. I ordered the spinach salad but had trouble choosing...More

I've been to Emma's pizza twice and really enjoyed my meals. I love thin crust pizza, so to me these are perfect, but if you are not a fan then you probably won't be happy. I had a 12" make your own pizza and it...More

Despite the fact that I'm a big fan of real Chicago deep-dish juicy pizza, I enjoy this very thin-crispy crusted pizza every now and again. Garlic tends to be the predominant flavor, but the pizzas come fresh out of the oven and sometimes it's great...More
