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.

  • ((((* 19 March 2018 by Charles Jones from Cambridge

    We live on the south side of the city, with plenty of restaurants to choose from much closer to home, but La Margherita remains a favourite with the family for celebrations. Staff are particularly friendly and well informed without being intrusive, the food is consistently good, and it's also convenient when, as last week, we want to take a visitor to nearby Kettle's Yard.

    Really nice meal and service

  • ((((( 10 March 2018 by Andrew Groves from Cambridge

    Once again a really good experience. Food / drink of a very good standard and service exceptional. Unlike some restaurants you really feel like the staff want you to enjoy your visit and they work hard to make that so. Particularly pleased by the way they accommodated my request for a quiet table for my wife and myself even though the restaurant was actually quite busy
