Quiet, with tasty food

Central Cambridge but a bit out of the way, so we could hear ourselves speak. Very nice food, and lots of vegetarian and gluten-free options.

I've been to La Margherita twice and always with a big group of people in their separate function room. I can really recommend the restaurant for parties like birthdays/ work dinners/ small weddings. The service is amazing (very attentive but also not pushy at all) and they are always happy to help and adjust to your wishes. The food is... More

Everything was fresh and the service was fantastic. Drinks: Peroni Draft Start: Antipasti for two Main: Seafood Linguini & Aubergine Cannelloni Finish: Latte & Mochachino (the closest thing to liquid silk - superb!) The food was delicious and I'll certainly be coming back. Great location and the restaurant has a lovely, welcoming atmosphere. Try this place - you won't be... More

We were arranging a meeting of old friends and needed a location that would be agreeable to folk from several different towns in the UK. Cambridge was agreed as the place we needed to be - not only for the location but also as a city with something to look at as we amble around catching up with each other's... More

My girlfriend and I went here after I did a google search for the best pizza in Cambridge. Not only was I not disappointed, but my expectations were far exceeded. I've been to Italy several times and this was one of the best pizzas I have ever had. England isn't known for it's pizza, but in cities like London and... More

I arrived late in Cambridge after traffic hold ups and needed to find a nearby restaurant. Whilst walking to the city centre I came across La Margherita on Bridge Street. The staff were starting to close up for the evening but I decided to eat there, despite being the sole customer at that time. The lasagne I ordered was very... More

Another really good lunch. Good food, good wine and excellent service. It is nice to visit a restaurant that is not part of a chain.

The menu follows traditional Italian style, with Primi, Secondi piatti etc on offer. Delighful restaurant environment, very clean, and attentive, welcoming staff. Considerable variety of pasta dishes, but very limited choice of fish and meat. Usual pizzas on offer, and those being served did not compare to the ones we have had in Italy. Our fish piatti were tasty and... More

It wasn't really bad but it wasn't as great as I expected from the rating here. The place was nice, but not cozy or comfortable at all. The stuff was kinda nice but we were eating all alone in the restaurant, which was quite weird but that wasn't their fault. Anyways, the food was quite good, especially the pizza. I... More
