A wonderful little place in Cambridge with fantastic Italian food. I travel to Cambridge often, and there are 5 places I absolutely must visit. This is one. My family has tried everything on their seasonal and imaginative menus. Everything is amazing!

Service is excellent and food was very good. Had the calamari and meatballs for appetizers—small portions. Ordered the spaghetti w. White clam sauce, for my entree, again the portion size was skimpy for the price of $ 20ish. While the food was three stars, I...More

My first visit to this restaurant. Nice, intimate space, but VERY noisy, even when not full and despite music played only as background or not at all. Must have been the acoustics, as it became very challenging to hold a conversation at the table after...More

Description
Delio Susi, in anticipation of his restaurant’s tenth anniversary, refined both his restaurant’s menu as well as its interior design, to great success. Losing none of his Abruzzi roots, the food is clean but clearly Italian, and a little rustic. The warm and inviting room makes the same statement. Drawing on his architectural background, Susi plays with simple organic materials, like square slate tiles and tabletops, and brown leather tufted banquettes. The use of brick plus copper fixtures contribute to the Italian country/casual feel that serves food and wine to match. Wooden floors and European style open windows for the summer add to this ambiance. And red lamps that hang in bright contrast with the earthy tones during the day, shed a sexy flattering nighttime glow. Amelia’s Trattoria offers a personal and authentic dining experience using top local ingredients infused with the heart of its Italian chef.
