Gufo, Italian for “owl,” is the first expansion into Cambridge for the Coda Group. From the minds who brought Boston SRV and The Salty Pig, comes a new modern Italian restaurant in the heart of East Cambridge. The hybrid destination offers locals a new café, restaurant, gathering space, and bocce court all in one.
Open from 8 AM until 11 PM daily, Gufo starts the day as an energetic Italian café slinging out fresh-baked Tomato and Cheese Pizza Rotolo, Chocolate Chip Zuchinni Bread, Mini Olive Oil Bundt cakes, and Pistachio Ginger Biscotti.
Sink your baked goods into one of Gufo’s gorgeous lattes. If you’re craving a heartier meal to start the day, try one of the creative sandwiches like the marinated eggplant, caponata, stracciatella, arugula pairing or the turkey, pine nut pesto, tomato crema combo. Sandwiches come on house-baked focaccia or ciabatta. Gluten-free bread is available upon request.
If you fancy a dinner at Gufo, dine indoors or outdoors on the 50-seat rustic-chic patio. Just beyond is a communal gathering spot and bocce court, al fresco.
Executive Chef Andrew Hebert spearheads the creations on all Gufo menus. Transitioning into dinner, you’ll find innovative Italian dishes perfected– like a Mafaldine puttanesca with olives, capers, and breadcrumb or a Chestnut Agnolotti with apple, cabbage, sage, brown butter and truffle. The menu plays around with flavorful Italian hot and chilled appetizers, house-made pastas, and wood-fired pizza.
Gufo welcomes guests to taste all its flavors with its sharing plates. Order four plates for $22 or all six plates for $30 and try the Marinated Castelvetrano Olives, La Tur with honey, Salted Almonds, Eggplant Caponata with whipped ricotta, Artichoke Tapenade, and Apple Mostarda.
