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.

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.

    Lovely tasty food, attentive and thoughtful service, pleasant atmosphere.

  • ((((* 1 February 2017 by Arti Krishna from Cambridge

    We had pizzas, which were delicious - and what interesting combinations of toppings! The only recommendation I have is that the restaurant pre-cut the pizza into slices (or least provide very sharp knives!), as the dough was very hard to cut through. Great that they had peach and apricot juices, not just an extensive wine list.

    Really good set menu , for early evening meal in Cambridge. Great food and service

  • ((((( 19 January 2017 by Jordan Webb from Cambridge

    Lovely food and lovely service. Very nice and relaxed atmosphere with professional service, where you can just feel at home and have a nice conversation over dinner. Dinner was amazing, we went for 3 full courses with drinks and it did not break the bank. You can't find anywhere else like it in Cambridge with such a high standard of food, good atmosphere and good price.

    My friends and I had a very good dinner together, with good service. The veal that I had as main dish could have been more tender, but it tasted very well. There was some draft from the window.
