I travel to Cambridge often, and there are 5 places I absolutely must visit. This is one. This is not a pizza place, but theirs are fantastic. The seating is not very comfortable, the service is iffy, but the pizza is worth it.

Simple, high end, thin crust pizza. Got the Margherita. Did not disappoint. Will order again when I'm in Cambridge.
