THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS Emma's Restaurant Review

: Cantabrigians frequent Emma's for its pizzas where the secret is in the crust: wafer thin, super crunchy and faintly sweet. Cheeses include Gorgonzola, feta, smoked mozzarella and goat, while the toppings --- think Kalamata olives, sun-dried tomatoes, dried cranberries --- number in the dozens. There is also a listing of suggested flavor combinations for the indecisive. We like the Number 9 with thyme roasted mushrooms, spinach, garlic, feta and red sauce topped with mozzarella. With the focus squarely on the pies, there are just three appetizers available: goat cheese marinated in olive oil, guacamole with flatbread chips and antipasto. If you’re not in the mood for pizza, try one of the specialty sandwiches, such as the toasted meatball hero with melted mozzarella and Parmesan, or the pressed vegetable on sourdough.
