I came back to this cool pizza place just to have the super fresh salad and the very thin crust pizza. All was very tasty - I would not recommend the onion and tomato pizza i thought it wasn't as good as the other ones. Overall great place and not too expensive.

We had lunch -being the four of us alone- in that little pizzeria that was built in an ancient fire station. Although it was a bit dark inside on a sunny summer day, the experience was great. We all took the pizza and it was delicious. My boyfriend had a micro-brewery watermelon beer. Staff was friendly. Would return if I... More

We were in town to drop my son off at college and stumbled upon Cafe Luna. We figured with the long line out front it had to be good & we were right. I never had a breakfast of Waffles, Wings, Eggs & Hash-browns before. We ended up coming back the next morning and I had it again, it was... More

Really enjoyed my lunch at Cambridge 1. I had a business meeting over a quick pizza. The service was very good and the pizza was delicious. Had a few vegetarian options. Interesting decor with a view of an old burial ground. I'd definitely go there again.

This was my 2nd visit to Cambridge One, and it didn't disappoint. It was a casual, early lunch of hot, freshly made crisp pizza and fresh arugula side salads topped with perfect flaky parmesan cheese. The pizzas we had were: 1/2 BBQ chicken 1/2 pepperoni and portobello, onion and asiago. This restaurant is very accommodating when it comes to getting... More

Great food - fresh and healthy ingredients with delicious taste. Went there with 3 other girlfriends - all loved our meals. I had the grilled chicken salad, friends had the potato pizza, arugula pizza, and pappardelle pasta. Prices are definitely lower than comparable restaurants in the square. We sat in a lovely, cozy booth, great for catching up with each... More

Cambridge, 1. in Harvard Square is a reliable spot for both a pseudo-quick bite as well as a longer, more substantial dining experience. The restaurant itself is QUITE DARK,which lead me and my partner to sit at the bar by the window (just so we could see the food!). The noise level is relaxed, despite the populated dining area -...

We went there for a pre-concert quick dinner. I was impressed by how visually attractive and peaceful the place felt although it was nearly full. Even when it filled up completely the noise level was still lower than one would expect. We had thin crust pizzas, which arrived quickly and were delicious. The beer was also wonderful (Dogfish IPA). Would... More
