Friendly, busy restaurant with good food

We had 2 dinners here and both were outstanding. The food was great and so was the service. Very busy so you need to book.

I went to cambridge to visit some friends and we went out for a simple dinner at Saturday evening. For my surprise this restaurant became one of the best dinner experiences I've ever had. I shall thank the manager and all the staff who were really great. The food was delicious, the risotto salmon is divine! After dinner we had... More

Booked this place due to good reviews on tripadvisor. We went to the cocktail bar the top first for a drink which was lovely, the barmen were very friendly and advised on some cocktails we may like based on the spirits we drink. Dinner was gorgeous, I had chorizo linguine and my partner had a pasta seafood dish. Loved both.... More

Went to celebrate a family occasion. From the moment we arrived, Jason and his team made us feel welcome. Started on the terrace in the sunshine but unfortunately the wasps were too irritating and so moved seamlessly back into the restaurant. The food was, as usual, absolutely top drawer. The squid starter is to die for, the swordfish and prawn... More

Saturday night dinner and the restaurant was fully booked. It is obviously a very popular place. We thoroughly enjoyed our Melanzane alla parmigiana - baked aubergine, parmesan with mozzarella & a rich Napoli sauce served with a mixed salad - it was the one of the best I have ever had. We enjoyed a good quality bottle of prosecco but... More

Popped in for a quick lunch during a business trip to Cambridge. Only had time for the Rapido menu, which was excellent value for money, and served very quickly which was ideal for sneaking in a decent meal whilst working! Had the salmon fishcakes which were great - given the high quality of a quick lunch, it would be nice... More

I'm lucky enough to have eaten at some Michelin star restaurants and I can honestly say this place matches them all for originality and taste. The food was fresh and prepared beautifully. Definitely my favourite place in Cambridge

It's amazingly difficult, even as a long-time resident, to find good food in Cambridge. Our meal at De Luca yesterday evening was one of the best meals I have had in Cambridge, certainly the best Italian food. We were a group of four and arranged to meet at the bar. They claim to have the only piano bar in Cambridge... More

This is my first ever bad review. Once a year my wife and I come up from London to Cambridge to take an old friend to lunch and to the theatre, so I looked for someone nice for lunch. De Luca seemed to tick the right boxes and the menu looked good. As seafood fans my wife and I ordered... More
