We've had several astoundingly good things from Formaggio Kitchen: everything is excellent, and the brie is unbelievable! But we also really love the Sat. BQ takeout lunches. Mac and cheese, and beans with bacon are great; the BQ ribs and half chicken are excellent

This is THE best cheese shop I have found in NE. After living in France, it's been so disappointing to not find REAL cheese.... until I discovered Formaggio Kitchen! We look forward to our trips to Cambridge just to visit this boutique!
