Visiting Cambridge for the day. Was recommended to visit Savino's for lunch. Could not have done better - would recommend it for food, coffee,staff and ambiance. Will definitely come here again.

Very good coffee, expertly made and at a reasonable price. Seating is tight and a lot of orders end up take-out by necessity. Didn't try the food but menunlooks extensive for an 'Italian' cafe.

If you are happy with the cappuccino you get in most places in Cambridge, don't bother going to Savino's. You won't like the coffee at other places anymore after having tasted the real thing. I was very unhappy with coffee in Cambridge and tried many...More

This place has the best coffee in town and is a real Italian gem in the heart of Cambridge. But don't waste the barrista's time, know what you want before you get to the counter.
