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.

    Food was amazing - service a bit lacking. Took a long time to remove our plates after we were done and a long time to bring the card machine after asking fro the bill. But really nice setting, staff was friendly (just slow and probably too few) and the food great!

    Perfect yet again.

    This is our favourite place for family celebrations, and has been for years. The food is consistently beautifully prepared, and there is a wide choice within the specifically Italian menu. They have a remarkable wine list, again overwhelmingly Italian, at reasonable cost; their house Negroamaro and Montepulciano are particularly well-chosen.
