The food is above average - the service is really bad, but the most important is that they cheat. Went there with 3 couples - we split the bill three ways, each with a different card. They charged my friends the correct amount and charged...More

Really cute place, feels like an old Italian cafe. I would have rated it higher but our service was very slow and bad, she filled our water repeatedly, we thought that was her job, 25 minutes later she wanted to take our food order and...More

The restaurant is very nice, and the food is excellent! I ate a pizza Margherita and it was perfect! I am from Naples and the pizza was good as that of Naples! My friend ordered ravioli and also this dish was very good!

Been x2 now since July. Pretty steady, albeit not super, local place removed from the craziness of Mass and Concord Aves. It gets points for ambience (it's decorated to make you feel like you're in an Italian piazza), outdoor seating, and hospitality. The dishes were...More

Our 6:00 PM reservation was honored on time. The waitstaff was hopelessly inattentive and disorganized throughout our dinner. The wine order was not taken for more than 1/2 hour. Although one appetizer and one pizza were served quite quickly, two of the main dishes were...More

Everything about my experience here was wonderful. We walked from Harvard Square, which was a bit of a walk but well worth it. I highly recommend venturing out to dine here. The salad and the salad dressing was so good (an arugula, apple, parmesan with...More

We had dinner at Gran Gusto with elderly friends after the cinema. We had already eaten, but went to keep them company. The food was good, except for my pizza which quickly became soggy. The next day I realized I had forgotten my raincoat either...More

Delicious Pizza with prosciutto and arugula. Also calamari tender and lightly battered. Friendly, prompt staff and very reasonably priced. A staple for an excellent meal coming out of Boston. We've been there more than any other Italian restaurant in the area and will be back.
