Foursquare Tips

  • Whatever pasta dish you get, order it with their homemade fusilli.
  • Yeah. Listen to everyone else. Get the homemade fusilli. (Pictured: squashed olive)
  • Two words: homemade pasta
  • Get the fusili! It's worth the extra two buks.
  • homemade fusilli is worth the extra $$. Bolognese is divine.
  • Never fails me - always hits the right spot.
  • DO ORDER the bolognese spaghetti! You can thank me later
  • Awesome homemade fusilli. Best bolognese in Cambridge. Get a side of meatballs.
  • Get the fusilli (or if they're out, the radiatore) with the chicken cacciatore or the squashed olives (and add grilled chicken). If they are out of homemade pasta, come back on a different day ...
  • The homemade fusilli is worth the up charge.
  • Almost anything is good here. Pasta and sandwiches in particular. Great value for big portions, more like 1.5-2 meals
  • It was alright.......there is no service and no wine or beer. Very rude but pasta was ok.
  • Pastas or salads are your best bets. Great value
  • I usually don't go for pasta but their homemade pasta dishes are outstanding!
  • Fantastic chicken parm
  • Large portion. The Chix Marsala is unique but not radical. Slight creaminess, acid, and fresh herbs elevates this dish to Best Of status. This is comfort food...
  • they now sometimes have homemade wheat radiatore. omnomnom
  • The fusilli isn't that good.
  • Basta > Mike's
  • Awesome spot for cheap/good italian! The chicken parm rocks!
