The restaurant is small and has an intimate feel about it. Food was all right, somewhat on the imaginative side for a person like me who likes classic Italian dishes.

We saw this restaurant on Phantom Gourmet and my husband decided we needed to try this place. Major drawback, parking. But that is pretty much the problem no matter where you go in Cambridge. There is a parking garage across the street but it is...More

my friend ordered a glass of red wine and it was undrinkable. To their credit, the restaurant allowed him to order a different wine at no extra charge, but shouldn't they have known the wine was bad??!? The food was fine.

Perfect for an after movie dinner restaurant. Small dining room (at least during the winter) so make a reservation. Calamari was excellent. Special ravioli was mushroom cream sauce with a ricotta stuffing, again excellent and my husband had the ribeye and he said it was...More

A wonderful little place in Cambridge with fantastic Italian food. I travel to Cambridge often, and there are 5 places I absolutely must visit. This is one. My family has tried everything on their seasonal and imaginative menus. Everything is amazing!

Service is excellent and food was very good. Had the calamari and meatballs for appetizers—small portions. Ordered the spaghetti w. White clam sauce, for my entree, again the portion size was skimpy for the price of $ 20ish. While the food was three stars, I...More

Our family of four visited and had a great time. The restaurant had a relaxed atmosphere and the food was great. Try the short rib bolognese and the ravioli. Highly recommended.

Delio Susi, in anticipation of his restaurant’s tenth anniversary, refined both his restaurant’s menu as well as its interior design, to great success. Losing none of his Abruzzi roots, the food is clean but clearly Italian, and a little rustic. The warm and inviting room makes the same statement. Drawing on his architectural background, Susi plays with simple organic materials, like square slate tiles and tabletops, and brown leather tufted banquettes. The use of brick plus copper fixtures contribute to the Italian country/casual feel that serves food and wine to match. Wooden floors and European style open windows for the summer add to this ambiance. And red lamps that hang in bright contrast with the earthy tones during the day, shed a sexy flattering nighttime glow. Amelia’s Trattoria offers a personal and authentic dining experience using top local ingredients infused with the heart of its Italian chef.
