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.

We were here on a snowy night so it was not too crowded. The bar was perfect as were the drinks - thank you Steve! We ordered two appetizers (a special with a very mild almost cream cheese type of cheese) and the grilled calamari....More

Some new friends have been urging us to go to Gran Gusto for about 6 months, but we hadn't followed through. But last Friday was our initiation. Wonderful! We've been depriving ourselves. It's in an out-of-the-way location, and the decor is pretty basic. But the...More

Getting the downside out of the way first, this is not the greatest location--a long walk (or drive through urban streets) from Harvard Square, Porter Square, Alewife, indeed just about anywhere you're likely to be in Cambridge. It also has somewhat uneven service, based on...More
