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.

    First visit and it won't be the last-lovely atmosphere, friendly staff and excellent authentic Italian food! Forget your chain Italian restaurants this is the place to go!

    Great antipasti misto, and main of saltimbocca. I would like to have seen some olive oil on the table as a condiment though.

    Lovely atmosphere and great food. I had the lasagne which had so many layers I couldn't count! The waiting staff were efficient, friendly and professional and made us feel very welcome. Will definitely try and return next time I visit the city.

    The actual building is lovely, the staff are super friendly and helpful - even on a very busy Saturday evening, and the food was delicious.

    A great evening eating here with our 3 Children (12, 10, 7). Restaurant was very acommodating - no separate kids menu, but they do smaller portions of tins from the normal menu. Friendly service, happy to let the kids chop and change the ingredients of the ice cream sundaes too.
