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.

    We had a lovely evening on my elderly fathers birthday. The restaurant was full, creating a good atmosphere, yet service was very good and at the right pace, with knowledgeable and very pleasant staff. The food was excellent and all in the party really enjoyed all we eat and drank! I also though the pricing was spot on. Well done.

    Excellent - everyone really enjoyed their food. The pizzas and pastas were both excellent and made with really fresh ingredients. There are lots of places to get pizza in Cambridge, but this is definitely the best at a restaurant!

    We booked online as we were visiting Cambridge for the weekend. Meal and service were both excellent. Will definitely return if in Cambridge again.
