My husband and I had a Sunday meal here yesterday and really enjoyed it. Things started off weird with the maitre d' not showing us to our table, instead just pointing at it, but after that she warmed up and was really helpful. Really good homemade Italien food a great people watching spot and we will go back.

Food was ok, but nothing special. What was really disappointing was the service which seemed disinterested at best and not particularly welcoming at all. For the money, I think there are plenty of other options for Italian food in Cambridge, with many of the chains at least taking care of their customers better. Won't be returning for sure.

We were staying in Cambridge overnight on the way home from a week's holiday. We ate at 7pm and the restaurant was already full. The atmosphere was lively and the staff friendly and welcoming. We had not booked a table but were still able to eat there. The food was exceptionally good. Freshly prepared and mouth-wateringly good. Highly recommend the... More

Food was excellent and hot. Guests were very impressed with their three course meals. The staff were very efficient and very friendly which made a very good atmosphere for a really enjoyable celebration. This is our favourite restaurant because the food is so yummy and the staff make us feel so special

Very good place to come and have a meal. Great food. Very friendly staff that look after you. If you like to talk football, come here. Even Scottish football is worth talking about

We return here time and time again and are never disappointed. It's the friendly informal atmospher and the great value money for food that bring us back. We don't live in Cambridge and so have to drive in, but parking around pound hill is normally easy and only a short stroll to the restaurant. The restaurant is family run and... More

I try to stick to independent eateries in Cambridge as we are lucky enough to have so many great ones. La Magherita is easily my favourite Italian in Cambridge with a Gelateria attached :) Simple, honest and tasty is exactly what I get here. Great for lunch and dinner with friends or a partner.

The atmosphere here is lovely, there is a vast selection to choose from, and the prices are very reasonable - especially for Cambridge. The food isn't incredible but it's quite good and I've visited here a few times, never anything special but alright food and wine for what you pay.

What a fantastic independent Italian restaurant. We had a lovely relaxed meal, celebrating our wedding anniversary. The Quattro formagi pizza was by far the best I've ever had and the desserts, well if you like gelato you'll enjoy it here, I had the hazelnut and chocolate which was topped with Nutella, absolutely delicious. Reasonably priced but be sure to book... More
