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.

    Having not been to La Margherita in years we decided to try it again with a visiting relative. When we first arrived the downstairs dining room was hot, noisy and very busy and we were concerned about the evening. However, we were taken upstairs to a less crowded, cooler dining room where we enjoyed a delicious meal from beginning to end with excellent service by the friendly waiting staff. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening and will no doubt be back.

    One of the best pizza in Cambridge. Great lasagna too.

    Nice family run Italian restaurant just enough steps out of the main part city to attract slightly less tourists. Clean and tidy though slightly dated but the fact that the tables are not squashed together is a bonus.
    Ordered food fine but I think they could make it a little more 'special'. Starters were ok but lettuce used when we thought rocket would have been better .Our linguine with prawns was good and hot though we were surprised there was not the tiniest bit of sauce.
    Our service was very very slow which we couldn't understand as had booked in advance and also rang that day to make a small amendment which they happy to do - also they were not even half full - a mystery.
    Staff friendly.
    Overall, worth a visit and maybe for us a 2nd visit if in the mood for a quieter location.

    Pleasently surprised by the quality of the pizza. My only complaint is that the tables are a little small.
