Restaurant description

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.

    A regular visitor - mostly for lunch with guests / colleagues. Recently brought a party of 40 Latvian business people and Ambassador. It has become an annual event - and Margherita does it brilliantly - in good time and at a very reasonable cost - because we have a limited budget. My business guests always like it. The staff are very accommodating. Food always very good - and never small portions!

    A group of us lunch here about 10 times a year. This time was no exception to the other times - we were welcomed as though we were family; the menu allows for our various tastes and is always well presented and served. Always we are given enough time to catch up with each other without being pressurised into ordering before we are ready - a lovely atmosphere.
