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.

    Great place, great basic wholesome Italian food. Friendly and high quality service. The only thing they might consider improving is the lighting which is a bit bright for the evening.

    Me and my gf booked a table for a Valentines get away. By the end of the night we both claimed this was the nicest Italian food we had eaten and the pizzas were amazing. Staff were friendly and service was fantastic! 100% re-visiting.

    We had a delicious meal and super wine with friends. A perfect restaurant for a Saturday night.

    Had a nice quick lunch here with friends. Food (pizza, frittata, and Involtini de melanzane as the mains) was very good and well-priced, service both speedy and attentive.
    The meringue with pistachio gelato for desert was particularly good. Overall, an excellent choice.

    What a find! Brilliant food, unobtrusively served, friendly service. Can’t praise it enough.

    Good menu and nice food and definitely a cut above the "stock high street Italian". Service was not particularly welcoming or friendly. Main courses served in the Italian manner, devoid of accompanyments so best order side dishes. No bread offered.

    Excellent service, excellent food, very pleasant surroundings - our favourite Italian restaurant.
