Cambridge One (Harv Sq)--downhill?

I've been happily eating pizza at Cambridge One since they opened. When I lived in Cambridge I used to go at least twice a month. Now that I've moved westward I only go a few times a year. They've stuck, admirably or frustratingly, to essentially the same menu and beer/wine list all these years, but they've done what they do well.

I was there last night, however, and was really disappointed. The pizza crusts, instead of being light, oven-burnished, oil-kissed, and deliciously salty, were underbaked, underseasoned, and doughy. There were big chips of raw red onion on my mashed potato pizza. And the pizzas were only warm, not hot, when they came to the table.

Tragedy! I love the warm feeling of the room at C1, and I love the view over the cemetery, especially on a fall afternoon. I like their small-but-carefully-chosen wine list. I even like those baked cheese stalactites they offer at the bar.

Was it just an off night, or is the 'za not good any more?
