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.

    Excellent food. I had the chilli prawns with linguine which was very tasty. The sea bass and stuffed aubergine rolls were also very good.

    Great family run restaurant with food cooked within sight of you so no hidden dirty kitchen. Difficult to choose as all so good but the fish risotto takes some beating. Only sorry we didn't have time to go yet again and try one of the delicious looking pizzas.

    Lovely friendly service and on the whole food good. Friends loved pear and blue cheese salad but another was underwhelmed by tomato and pinenut salad.
