Giulia - Italian in Cambridge

When you think about heading out for Italian food in the Boston area, you immediately assume a trip to the North End is in order. However, turns out amazing Italian food can be found at Giulia, between Harvard and Porter Squares in Cambridge. Giulia offers a menu loaded with delicious food that is seemingly simple, but when you take a bite, you know a whole lot more is happening on the plate. Nick and I have been making an effort to get out to more restaurants that are a bit off our beaten path, and Giulia was one of our first stops.

Bottle of Red!

After settling on a bottle of wine, we decided to go a bit crazy (as Nick and I tend to do) and take ourselves through the menu by indulging in appetizers, pasta dishes, and dessert!

Prosciutto di parma with pear, arugula and aged parmigiano
Insalata verde with soft herbs, frantoia extra virgin olive oil and parmigiano
Orecchiette with house made pork sausage
Olive Oil Cake
Everything that came to our table was wonderful. The prosciutto plate was just loaded with the great, rich flavor - simple, but of an incredibly fresh quality. The pasta dishes were superb - the handmade pasta had just the right texture and was perfectly cooked. Each pasta dish was well balanced with its toppings and sauces, which is something I try hard to replicate at home but can never master! The olive oil cake was a great wrap up to our meal - light and perfectly complimented with the icy fruit sorbet.

Giulia was a terrific surprise - definitely the quality you expect from your favorite North End establishment, but without the accompanying craziness.
