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.

    The whole meal was excellent from start to finish. The food really good with lots of choices and the service brilliant. We had a baby and small child with us and they were very accommodating throughout; there wasn’t a children’s menu as such but my daughter asked for a little pizza and got exactly that.

    Always first class Italian food and drink with attentive and friendly service. Margherita's is always busy and deserves to be so.

    Good Italian dishes (pizza, lasagna). Pizza is better than in Bella Italia.

    Best house wine anywhere.

    Friendly staff - it is always a delight to meet them. They are always very accommodating.

    Had dinner with my fiancee and i can say that it was a lovely place. Food was amazing you have magical music background and when the daylight goes they put on your table a lovely candle :) the only negative i would say is the time you wait for the food coming but since we went to have a chill dinner and had such a nice time we were not very bothered with that detail
