Our diverse party of 6 (from the UK and US) experienced Emma's on our first night in Cambridge. Couldn't have made a better choice. The pizzas were properly tasty and generously packed, and the beer selection was perfect. Special mention to Lyndon, the manager, who made us feel welcome and reeled off a list of attractions and recommendations for our... More

Read many reviews of this place and it seems over rated to me. I am a basic pizza guy so maybe for simple pizza this is not the place to go. Pizza was OK. Thin crust style which I prefer. The crust was not great. Tasted more like a cracker than pizza crust. It was not burnt but maybe over... More

Superb thin crust pizza in this little gem of a restaurant. Looks to be family run and was seriously the best pizza we've ever Had!

Really great menu and a thin crust pizza to match. We had the Mediterranean Pizza with added hot sausage and it was to die for. The kids loved the large selection of Vegetarian Pizza's. Friendly staff made it worth the struggle of parking in Cambridge.

We stumbled on this place on our first evening staying in Cambridge as part of our New England road trip and it was a real find. We shared 2 huge pizzas, had some great craft beers and enjoyed the meal hugely. The pizzas were delicious, thin crust and packed with toppings. The veggie one myself and my daughter had was...

Really great pizza. Thin crust, so plan to eat a lot of it. The restaurant is really tiny. They also serve beer.

We've been coming here for 5 years. The food and atmosphere is always consistent. Love their pizzas and salads. Jeff runs a great restaurant in close proximity to MIT and the Kendall Sq theater. He's got loads of experience. We look forward to seeing him and his staff when we visit!

Emma's is my favorite pizza place. The thin crust pizza with a variety of fresh topping choices never fails to please. I suggest ordering more than you want so you can take it home to eat cold in the morning (my favorite dinner and breakfast). Every time I go I get the guacamole as an appetizer. It's soooooooo good, and... More

We were staying in an Airbnb nearby and this was a nearby neighborhood restaurant. All tables were full at about 8:45 on a Monday night, so we sat at the counter. They fill up when the nearby movie theater lets out, so plan accordingly. Very good, not great pizza, with lots of interesting toppings. We went pretty traditional as we... More

The pizza here is a thin crust, a very thin crust, but surprisingly not cracker like; almost like a Neapolitan that was worked to a whisper, rather than a more doughy platform. The pie we ordered was light in all its topping: sauce, cheese, garlic, artichoke, among other things (I don't remember everything), but don't take that as a negative.... More
