"We took very exacting New York house guests. They were quite surprised that such a sophisticated place and quality food could be found here. The evening was a success and they were not disappointed when their return flight was cancelled and they got to make a return trip for lunch. Bravo!"

"We've always liked the restaurant so chose to organize a brunch for visitors and family for new brunch offering. It was fabulous. The buffet offerings are wide ranging, high quality and delicious. Stations are arranged around the lovely dining room in appealing groupings. The ambience of simple elegance makes you feel pampered but not spoiled. Go if you can."

"This is a sophisticated restaurant for grown ups. The seafood is pristine and simply prepared. Service is highly professional but not starchy. Prices are high but it's not a rip off."

Giulia is a chef-owned Italian restaurant located between Harvard and Porter Squares in Cambridge. This is the first restaurant of award-winning Chef Michael Pagliarini. Our focus is on inspired food and great service with true Italian vigor. We put a particular focus on our hand-crafted pastas, made each day on our custom-built chef"s table adjacent to the open kitchen.

"Simply great food. Right up there with the best NYC restaurants of the same style. Maialino in Boston. If you haven't been there don't wait another second."

Located at 40 Brattle Street in Harvard Square, Alden & Harlow serves thoughtfully sourced, honest American food in a subterranean, modern and comfortable space. Replicating the style of cooking he does for family and friends in his home kitchen, Chef Michael Scelfo prepares humble, unpretentious food that honors tradition of place in its quality. It's how he connects with anyone who joins them at their table.<br /><br />While reservations are strongly suggested, we also save a portion of the dining room and bar for walk-ins in the event that your request cannot be accommodated, so, please, come on in!<br /><br />Parties of 8 or more, please call to make a reservation.<br />

"This was a repeat visit. There are lots of good small sharing plates on the menu. It the hamburgers are the reason to come. A burger and a beer before a concert or movie make for a great evening."
