Trata-new pizzeria in Harvard Square-awful!!

They seem to have just recently opened, an "upscale" pizzeria next to Dadaelus (in the old Tommy's pizza.)

The renovated room was beautiful, the ambiance was lovely, great window seating, good music, I was all excited for a great lunch.

Their menu had interesting offerings, but I went with a slice of cheese and a slice of peperoni- because if they can do those right, anything else is going to be fantastic. I'm really glad I didn't go for a $9 pie and just took a slice. They were AWFUL! The sauce had no taste or texture. The cheese had cooled, and I guess they added more cheese to my order and put it back into the oven. Too oily, too cheesy- in fact almost rubbery! the crust was small, maybe originially a 12" or a personal pizza size. But it too was tasteless and bland. The thing was, it took so long to get the slices too, it would have been better for them to just re-make a couple of pies- maybe even faster!

This was horrible!! In fact, I left regretting the calories I wasted on these slices! In addition to the money lost! I'm not a calorie counter at all, but I was really, really disapointed.

I really like Cambridge 1, I think its a fun concept with ok food. I was excited for this new place, sadly I will not stop in again.
