At this beloved Cambridge restaurant, couples can celebrate with an intimate Italian dinner party on the heated, vine-wrapped terrace, opened just last summer. The space, which holds 40 people for a seated dinner (more for cocktail receptions) under a twinkling awning, has already become popular for smaller weddings. As for the food? Recent selections on the customizable prix-fixe menu have included Macomber turnip soup, Venetian duck pâté on bulgur crackers, and butter-poached lobster, making this a unique choice for lovebirds in search of a venue with exceptional cuisine.
