Don't even bother. Terrible management and staff. The only thing they are good at is making noise in the middle of the night when there are no customers in the outside patio.
Great Place for a Date, Fantastic Pizza and Great Beer.
I love Cambridge 1. The Service is Quick and the Pizza is out of this world. I also love that they have Pitchers of Beer and Tv's all around to watch the games. Cool Spot. Check it outttt
Pizza & pitchers, upscale.
Cambridge 1 is the human to Newtowne Grill's chimpanzee - a smarter, evolved, place to get pizza and a pitcher.
Let's start with the 'za itself. Wood fired in an open kitchen, the whole place is filled with a delicious scent of woodsmoke and crisping crust. The choices are on the lighter side, with a number of veggie options and the meaty ones being well balanced rather than sausage overload. I haven't yet had a bad pizza here, and would say that I've really liked almost everything.
The beer selection is decent too. Nothing too fancy, you won't find Stone here or anything, but they do have solid beers and a good selection from light to dark, whatever you may choose. I've heard good things about the wine, but never tried it myself.
The whole place is very hip looking. Black slate-like tables, huge ceilings, clean lines on everything. It's a comfortable place, and really good for groups of 8 or so with their numerous large tables. It's definitely a good place to stop after work with a bunch of friends or co-workers to unwind after a long week. The only downside is that you'll be paying quite a bit more money for a lot less filling pizza than you'd get from most places. The flatbread style always leaves me feeling like I've just had a great appetizer, but now need a real entree, and then I realize I've just paid as much as I would have at another bar for a couple beers and a burger.
That said, this is a really cool place, with really good food, and I recommend it when you're in the mood for pizza and pitchers with some of your classier friends.
Good Desinger-style pizza. This is a great place to have designer style pizza. It's also a great alternative to the sports bars around Fenway that tend to get very crowded. My boyfriend and I went there last year during the World Series and it was a nice way to eat, drink, and watch the Sox game within close proximity to Fenway, but while still being comfortable. They have several flat-screen TV's that are visible throughout the restaurant and bar area. The general atmosphere is chic and comfortable.
Designer salads and pizzas make the move across the Charles to the Fenway..
Young professionals and, surprise, Sox fans fill this exceptionally attractive bar and restaurant to munch on gourmet basics. Both the menu and atmosphere (a minimalist decor made up mostly of concrete, brick and wood) are pretty much identical to those of the original location in Harvard Square. Laid-back bartenders serve up pitchers of microbrews and glasses from the short, cosmopolitan wine list.
While the menu consists only of creative salads and pizzas, no one seems to complain. Top salads include the Bibb lettuce, grape tomato and Gorgonzola, and the bresaola, arugula and shaved Parmigiano varieties. The excellent charcoal-grilled, thin crust pizzas come in half and full sizes. Good options include the No. 4, with portobello, roasted onion and Asiago, and the No. 6, sporting roasted peppers, grilled chicken, mozzarella and Romano.
