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.

    Brilliant place! Staff helpful but not over the top. Food excellent. All five of our mains were equally great. Good size dessert portion. Prices very fair. There was a huge party downstairs but luckily we sat upstairs and it was nice and quiet. Pretty beams and exposed brick. We will definitely be back.

    We received excellent and caring service, promptly and welcoming. The food was great - delicious sardines. The salad was crisp and fresh, beautifully presented. Tiramisu and creme brûlée much too good!

    My mom and I had a good time at La Margherita!
    The staff welcomed us friendly and our table was ready at our arrival.
    The waiter gave us a good wine recommendation, we really ejoyed.
    As starter we shared the Carprese Salad, which was really good. We were provided two small plates to make sharing easy.
    My mom´s lasagna was really tasty and fresh.
    My spaghetti bolognese would have needed a bit more spices and taste in general, but I still did enjoy eating it.
    As a dessert I could choose from the generous ice cream available at the counter of the cafe, even if it wasn´t on the Menu. The chocholate and the raspberry ice cream was a really great final for our dinner!
    Definitly a reccomdation in Oxford
