Uno Chicago Grill is located in Washington Street, at the heart of one the most famous university areas in the world, Harvard University. It is a charming place to be, in a small village in the middle of a major metropolitan area.

Uno Chicago Grill is one out many at Harvard Square, and it is easy to enjoy all the square has to offer. Take the red line from downtown direction Alewife and leave at Harvard.

I liked the interior, felt being in a old factory building or basement. Red brick walls, dark chairs and tables neatly decorated with table cloths, and cutlery waiting for the guests to arrive.

As this was an early lunch, not many were seated, but as time passed more came, and it was obvious that it was a popular place to hang out.

Good service from the staff, and I was served promptly. I could choose from a large, reasonably priced menu.

And what would be more tempting than a flat bread, Italian style, pizza. There were many to choose from, and I chose one with meatballs and plenty of garlic, and that was the real stuff.

It covered the whole plate and when tucking into it I immediately got that Italian sensation, strong aromas of sweet garlic, meatballs with plenty of the same stuff and Italian herbs.

Moist, but not soggy cheese and great Italian tomato sauce. If this pizza reflects the overall standard, I would not hesitate a minute to recommend it as a place to eat at Harvard.

Summary

A reasonably priced, good meal served in the heart of Harvard Square. Nothing much to put your finger one and definitely a place to return to.
