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.

    This was our first meal out since lockdown and it was a very pleasant experience indeed. We were visiting family in Cambridge and wanted somewhere cosy and friendly to go out. We found it. The service was excellent and the food very tasty. Thanks for a lovely evening.

    It was good to celebrate our first restaurant outing with a friend at La Margherita. As we are regular customers, we were happy to see the staff. They welcomed us with their customary courtesy and friendliness. The food was good and the service smooth and unfussy. Will return again.

    LOVELY TO BE WITH OUR FRIENDS FROM LA MARGHERITA AGAIN AND EAT AT OUR FAVOURITE TABE UPSTAIRS BY THE WINDOW IT WAS A DELICIOUS MEAL WITH THE BEST HOUSE WINE EVER - INDEED THE BEST WINE (NEGROAMARO) EVER. I WISH I COULD BUY SOME TO DRINK AT HOME! I MISSED THE A SET LUNCH MENU WHICH I THOUGHT I HAD SIGNED UP FOR US BOTH ON LINE. BUT IT DID AT LEAST GIVE ME THE OPPORTUNITY TO ENJOY THE GRILLED VEGETABLES PLATTER AS A MAIN COURSE. I WOULD STILL BE GLAD TO ENJOY THE OMELETTE, HOWEVER.
