In a city bedevilled by chains, this is a truly independent and gorgeous Italian restaurant. Unpretentious from the outside, the fool is authentic, good value and prepared with Italian love of food. Also a great wine selection, with some great one-offs.

If you want to feel like "la nonna" prepared your food, then you should go to this place. Real italian comfort food, true and honest flavors, not the fancy fusion types nor the chain types. The best canelloni I've tried in the UK. The service is not remarkable, but the food...just try it because of the food, you won't regret... More

Visited here on the 7th November for my birthday and I wasn't disappointed. I had been meaning to try this place for a long time and I was so glad I did! It was a fantastic evening. I had the buffalo mozzarella starter, which could have been a bit bigger for the price, but was still excellent. The mozzarella was... More

Just walked in this restaurant for my birthday dinner and it was a nice choice. Looking plain from outside, the food and service are wonderful at a fair price. Love the Risotto ai frutti di mare, which is so tasty, and the amount of seafood is even more than the rice. The set menu is good value if you like... More

The restaurant was recommended to us by the proprietor of the Tudor Guest House and we were not disappointed. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful and the food was excellent. I would have no hesitation recommending this restaurant which was located on the banks of the Cam.

We visited for an early meal with two six year old meals. The food was fresh and there was a good choice available on the menu. The house red wine was ok, but for a few extra pence my father-in-law had an excellent glass of red. Meal was good value and the service was perfectly acceptable without being too gushing.... More

My husband and I dined from the set lunch menu priced at £13.50 for 3 courses (a 2 course option is available) and the food was once again delicious and tasted fresh. The understated atmosphere is lovely, La Margherita has a very pleasant authentic feel to it and the staff ensure that the service provided is very good. There isnt... More

In a city full of the usual chain restaurants, this one stands out as pleasantly individual. It's not exceptional, but the quality and prices are in sync and the staff are efficient and helpful. I've been a few times and not had a bad experience yet. Recommended.

A smallish family run Italian restaurant with pasta, pizza and more. We have been here several times over the last six years or so and it always been OK. I like the friendly efficient and informal service. It is not overly attentive, just about right for the place I would say. The place is popular and attracts families, couples and... More
