Had a lovely evening meal here. Pleasant enough interior, food good as was the wine. Value for money. Friendly staff. Everything you could ask for really!

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.

    Very friendly and accommodating

    Choose La M for my wife's birthday after briefly considering a few other places, she's always been pleased when visited in the past anyway.
    Food always good and the service and ambience is great, you really feel that the staff are pleased to have your custom but that's what you get with a family business. All my requests in advance handled nicely too and staff happy to give you some of their time

    We are always well looked after - almost as though we are family. Our likes and dislikes are remembered; the food is tasty and well served.

    Lovely table upstairs, excellent service from friendly staff. Pizza base on one dish was very soggy and not nice but pasta dishes, antipasti and desserts all excellent. Overall very good.
