We love Amelias. It is small but beautiful! The chef is consistently excellent and the wait staff remembers us and greets us with bigs smiles.
We really get the royal treatment. We did take out for a year but last night celebrated at Amelias for our FIRST night out I’m ages!!!
Visiting Cambridge we stumbled upon Amelia’s. The food, the service, more importantly the wine were amazing. I would highly recommend the polenta and the pappardelle, but honestly don’t think you can go wrong with anything there.
Very good food, pasta is fresh, good wine collection and very nice staff!
Perfect! We had the most delicious shrimp scampi and lobster ravioli! Warm bread and olive oil + Cesar salad to start. Classy, cozy and welcoming atmosphere. Very fine service.
Amelia's is by far my favorite place to dine in Cambridge. The food, the wine, the service and the vibe are all exceptional. Owners Delio and Rebecca Susi have created a beautiful, local gem by putting their love and care into it over many years, and I'm so thrilled to see that it has not only survived but is beginning to thrive again! 💜
Overall, the service was okay - the place was very understaffed, but the servers were doing their best. However, the food was pretty poor quality for the price. The noodles were quite a ways past al dente and the sauce was severely lacking flavor (very under seasoned). We were also seated in a pretty dark area without lighting, which is pretty not ideal for an evening meal.
Unfortunately there was only one server and bartender on staff tonight so service was terrible. We waited 10 minutes to be seated and then another 15 to even get a menu which we had to request. We waited another 30 minutes without any contact with the server even though she came next to us to clear a table. We never got any water, silverware or anyone to even take our drink order before we decided to leave. It was unfortunate as we were very excited to try this place out but their staffing issue was a big problem. I hope they figure this out!
Love the ambiance of this small bistro, and the food was delicious!
Delicious food and wine. Fantastic service and just a lovely romantic place for dinner.
The food was very greasy and overpriced. My pasta was swimming in oil, and my sister's chicken was as well.
Amazing food. TERRIBLE service. Probably one of the best Italian restaurants in the Cambridge area so worth trying for the food alone but be prepared to wait at least 20 minutes to get your order in, 40 minutes for your food and another 30+mins for your dessert and check. We never got water refills and the waiter never brought our second drinks. Had to walk up to the actual bar to be able to pay. They were nice enough to not charge us for drinks or desserts, only they gave us the wrong dessert to go.
Food and cocktails were great! The servers seemed to be doing the best they could while being short staffed. It took awhile to get our food, but the servers were very friendly and accommodating.
It was great.
We had a great time; the staff was amazing and the food was great. They were a little jammed when we were there but they kept a smile on their faces and since we were in no rush it didn't matter. Drinks were generous. Loved the grilled octopus as well as the meatballs :)
Amelia’s is the best kept secret in Boston/Cambridge dining. The food is: incredibly delicious, fresh, and plenty. This night we celebrated a special occasion but don’t wait for a special day. You won’t regret it.
Great service and food
Went for a Valentine’s Day date and everything was amazing! My boyfriend got the ravioli with bolognese and I got gnocchi. Highly recommend for a dates because of the ambiance.
Amelia’s always has incredible Italian dishes without the craziness of the North End. The Pappardelle is absolutely velvety, and the staff is so nice!
Very nice spot with excellent and helpful service. We came on Valentine’s Day but it was freezing outdoors and they did not have enough lantern fluid for
Went here for Valentine’s Day 2021 with my significant other. We had a reservation and were forced to wait outside in the freezing cold for an hour and fifteen minutes until we were seated (along with a bunch of others with reservations standing in a line out the door). The food was good and the staff excellent, but absolutely horrendous job by management overbooking for the evening.
I wish I lived closer so I could go more often
Had to wait over an hour to get a table even with the reservation. Good food made up for it
Lovely food and very attentive service even though we were sitting outside; the temperature was below 40 but the patio heater did a fine job.
We have been coming to Amelia's for probably 20 years. They have never disappointed. The food is always great, the people very welcoming.
Great foot. Attentive server. Can’t wait to return!
Professional service and great food. Patio seating is perfect with the heat lamp. Definitely going back.
Great meal, authentic Italian with great wine selection
Food and sangria was amazing. Can’t wait to go back!!
We had a lovely evening. The staff is trying very hard to follow new rules while trying to run their kitchen and serve their clients. Everything did take longer than before the pandemic but we are all learning together. We appreciate all their effort and having a lovely meal on their patio during a beautiful summer night.
My wife and I have been frequenting Amelia's for special occasions for the last 4 years. The service and food have always been top quality. It is our favorite Italian restaurant in Cambridge. They have a very good social distancing set up for outdoor seating currently, and we received the same experience we expected.
Wonderful food and wonderful service!
Our meals were amazing. Our waiter knew the menu and made great suggestions.
Staff was incredibly helpful and on their game first day back after opening. Food was next level tasty!! All plates were cleared and no leftovers to bring home. Would recommend to everyone that likes a good Italian dish!
Loved it! Homemade pasta and fresh sauce. Service was excellent and so attentive.
We had a wonderful Friday night dinner at Amelia’s. Family time. Delicious food. Attentive service. Intimate ambiance. Everyone had a great time. The highlights were the Sausage Bolognese and the Negronis.
Excellent. The bolognese was the best. Ceasar salad was the best. Martini's need to be filled to the brim. Don't cheat your guests.
Very nice restaurant. The menu could be slightly expanded. I has pasta vongole... tasted excellent. portion was on the small side for $24. We would return.
Great neighborhood Italian restaurant.
Hands down best food in the area, besides Sulmona of course. The service was beyond perfection. Every time the servers approached the table they had a smile on their face! The food came in a timely manner and was warm and delicious. I would eat here everyday if I could! My husband and I enjoyed the sweet pea arancini, calamari, lobster ravioli special, steak frites, tiramisu and homemade vanilla gelato. We can not wait to go back again!
