Went here for dinner on a hen weekend and couldn't have picked a better place! Great food, lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. Sat right next to the open kitchen - how the chefs stay so calm in such a small space is beyond me. The food was excellent and would love to return when I visit Cambridge next.

I have eaten 3 times now here and can definitely recommend it. It is one of those places that is great for a Saturday night date night with your partner or for a mid week with friends. The food is very good, it's certainly better Italian food than say somewhere like Jamie's and has a great atmosphere when full. The... More

I have been to De Luca on a number of occasions and always make sure that when I come to Cambridge, De Luca is on my list for a great meal. We have always had great service, whether it has been a large party (20+) or just 2 of us and a great meal. Some of our favorites are the... More

Went there with my girlfriend it was rly busy at the moment i arrived but 1 of the staff suggested a table right away. Had a crispy squid for starters (5min) and a salmon fillet as main (+/- 20min) , the squid was delicious and salmon was perfectly cooked. Excellent food and staff, the atmosphere was brilliant. Will come back... More

We went for a birthday meal in September and were not disappointed!! Particular highlights were the vegetarian ravioli, wine and Prosecco-sorbet dessert. The ambience was pleasant, if not outstanding, and staff were polite and well dressed. Well worth a visit if you enjoy food.

Went here with another couple. One of the couple said he wasn't a huge fan of Italian. He changed his mind throughout the evening. The food is brilliant. The service first class, in fact I can't find anything to fault the restaurant on...

We (4p) had a relatively quick dinner with well cooked, good amount of tasty Italian food. For this price category it was very good. Also service was attentative. despite the busy seating and a big group we managed 2 courses within 1.5 hours. Especially if you are looking for a change from the omnipresent pub food in the center of... More

Gave this place another chance. Wish I hadn't. The service was appalling apart from the fantastic front of house.he is the only thing going for this place.it took 30 mins to get a menu and drink and it wasn't even busy. Massively overly rated food. Won't be going again which is a shame.

I'm sorry that you had a negative experience with us! We hold up our hands and except that last night we got caught out with a full restaurant and not enough staff to cope with the demand. As you can see from most of the review on us, this was a rare occurrence as we do try to predict when... More

nice food, no chain, family-run restaurant. good typical italian food prepared with love. atmosphere is fine, location: just next to a main street, but with seats on the roof. check your bill at the end ;-)
