It's a tiny little hold-in-the-wall place with no effort spent on decor. But the food is delicious and the portions generous, and most of them are under $10. I go here whenever I want a filling Japanese meal and don't want to spend the $20...More

I go here (literally) 4-5 times a week for lunch. I don't think it would be possible to get sick of this place. The hot udon soup is the best I've ever had, and i'm a soup-a-holic, especially Asian soups. It is pure pleasure in...More

I did not like this place at all. I had pork dish and it did not taste right. I think this is least authentic Japanese place. I do not recommend trying this place.

This small Japanese restaurant is in a cluster of other mostly Asian restaurants at 1815 Mass. Ave. in Porter Square, Cambridge. Menu is varied, and I have enjoyed curries, noodle dishes, for some reason the soup tastes the best there for my taste. Authentic Japanese...More

Ittyo anchors a line of casual Japanese and Korean eating places, situated not far from the more-formal-but-still-casual Bluefin within the same shopping complex. One of those places is like a coffee shop, when coffee shops weren't defined as Starbucks but as low-key restaurants. Another is...More
