This fabulous small family run restaurant is gem. We love going there and have never been disappointed with the food or service. It offers great flavoursome food which is excellent value for money.

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 group of us ex-colleagues meet about once a month and our preferred meeting place is La Margherita as the staff are warm and welcoming, the table awaits, it is unpretentious but gives a 'family run' atmosphere and the food is tasty and reasonably priced. We can catch up with each other whilst knowing we shall be well looked after. The venue is exactly what we want.

    This is undoubtedly one of the best restaurants in Cambridge. Family-run, not just a chain. Service is v efficient, overseen by Lina and Jean-Pierre. Royalty have been known to drop in during unofficial visits to the city!

    This restaurant is so consistent. I have dined here a number of times on visiting the city of Cambridge. The welcome is always warm and the standard of cooking remains of a high standard. A wide range of Italian classics fill a menu which meets every taste. The service is always of the highest standard with helpful staff that do their best to make your evening comfortable and memorable.
