“Best lunch spot in Cambridge”
Review of Dave's Fresh Pasta

Dave's Fresh Pasta
Ranked #9 of 345 Restaurants in Somerville
Restaurant details
Reviewed 13 July 2017

Dave's is fantastic. While it's not fancy and only has a small amount of seating, it's the best lunch spot in Cambridge. Their sandwiches are great, my favorite is the hot prosciutto and fig on a baguette.

In addition to having great sandwiches for lunch, they also sell a wonderful variety of fresh pasta, cheeses, wines, and beer. They also have a small amount of fresh produce. I love this place. If you're visiting Cambridge, it's definitely worth the trip out to Davis Square. If you're walking and interested in food/drink, The Boston Shaker (a bar supply store) is right down the street and does bitters tastings in the back of the shop -- it's a fun way to spend twenty minutes!

We arrived almost on closing time so I rapidly chose some ravioli to take home to cook - I picked butternut squash, broccoli and asiago and artichoke with fortina. All absolutely excellent. I wish they had a branch in the area I live in the UK !!

You would think that making a good sandwich is no big deal. Well it is and this place has it right!

The breads were fresh, the meats were well seasoned and tasty and all the extras (vegetables, cheese, marinades) were just perfect. I highly recommend getting your sandwich pressed.

The place is more of a market than a sit down restaurant. But there is some limited seating and it adds to the wonderful atmosphere.

We checked out the fresh pastas which looked amazing but because we were traveling couldn't buy any.

Anyway, if you are looking for a delicious sandwich this is your place. Loved it!

This wonderful shop offers a little trip into another world, chock full of delicious foods, fresh vegetables, interesting wines, homemade pastas, and outstanding sandwiches. All staff are friendly, attentive, efficient, helpful in spite of the crowds and numerous frequenter-fans.
I live two blocks away and often go to Dave's to buy supplies for lunch, dinner or later in the week cooking items. Occasionally, I eat in the small space available for enjoying their home cooking and marvelous sandwiches in-house.
