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.

    My favourite restaurant in Cambridge - we come here for nearly every birthday and celebration. The service is always friendly and fast, the food is so delicious and it's a lovely, cosy restaurant on a beautiful street in the centre by the river. I'd highly recommend the pizza with sausage and courgettes, and the chocolate cake (I have it every time!). I'd highly recommend La Margherita for a lovely lunch or dinner.

    Love this restaurant. Friendly staff, relaxing surroundings and such good food - even for someone who has coeliac like me! The seafood risotto and the melanzane are particularly good, and you have to try the Limoncello creme brûlée.

    One of the features that is so impressive is the consistency of the food. The chef never fails to deliver top quality results. This, coupled with the exemplary service, makes the whole dining experience a memorable one.

    The food is always of the highest standard both in flavour and presentation. The pizzas are exceptional with a real taste of Italy. Most importantly, the staff are attentive and welcoming. It is always a highlight of my visits to Cambridge to spend an evening at La Margherita.
