A charming family-run Italian restaurant in Cambridge, La Margherita showcases Mediterranean recipes passed down through the generations in a smart setting, with large windows flooding the interior with natural light.

The menu at La Margherita contains authentic Italian recipes that have been passed down through the owners' family. Everything is prepared fresh on the premises – the pizza dough is prepared each morning, and topped with imported delicacies like fennel salami, buffalo mozzarella and anchovies. There are varied antipasti sharing options, pasta recipes like linguine with prawns, oyster mushrooms, chilli and garlic, and rich mains like veal escalope fried with cured ham.

Desserts at La Marherita Cambridge include the owner's famed tiramisu, as well as a popular gelato range with an impressive 24 flavours. The wine list boasts bottles from all across Italy, including Tuscany and Sicily.

A wonderfully authentic example of traditional Italian family dining, La Margherita sits an 11-minute drive from Cambridge Rail Station.

    Fantastic restaurant, nice location, and great service as always. Food was delicious, I couldn't decide what to have but finally settled on the Carbonara and I'm really pleased that I did. The food came very quickly and was very fresh. Staff were very attentive and we were never kept waiting for long.

    Simply superb. From the warm greeting and nicely chilled Prosecco to the excellent Espresso, the entire experience was faultless. Service was attentive and genuinely friendly. Having lost our favourite Italian restaurant of 15 years in London to greedy landlords, I truely beleive we have found a superior replacement. Every aspect of our choices were authentic and fresh as can be. No favourite....all superb. Only question mark, foil wrapper butter pats with excellent Ciabatta??? The 'family business' foundations, shone through. Cannot wait to journey back.
