I was quite surprised to find a place like this in Cambridge. You can have real Italian food for reasonable price. I had four dinners here, trying many plates but not pizza. I would definitely recommend this place.

Guys don't bother with this, firstly service non existant, never got a smile, eye contact or any interaction. Why did an independent think for one second it would be ok to serve up 3 supermarket bought small garlic slices as a starter. Absolute rubbish. Second course if you want an anorexic calzone with virtually no filling in between the pasta... More

A lovely family run Italian restaurant in the city centre serving food we would have been very happy to have in Italy.Despite arriving just before their closing time we were made very welcome ,the food was freshly prepared and was accompanied by a lovely bottle of wine.As an interesting alternative they also stock a number of artisan Italian beers.

The Margherita is a lovely family owned restaurant serving authentic Italian food and excellent home made ice cream. The staff are usually friendly and helpful and the menu choices are good, although I wish the menu was slightly bigger or changed more often. Still, it is one of the few Italian places in the are that isn't an awful chain... More

Very nice food, served quickly and efficiently. We visited for a family birthday and were very well looked after. Food very good, lots of choice, very nice dinner. Menu catered well for all ages. Good choice of wines to go with the menu. Staff very friendly and helpful, definitely worth another visit.

It's a very pleasant restaurant with very kind staff, never invasive. It is also the absolutely cleanest restaurant in Cambridge! I am Italian and of course it is impossible to find the real taste of the local Italian ingredients abroad. For Cambridge standards, value for money is very reasonable. However, the dishes hare are honestly prepared, simple, but it is... More

Because it's my favourite restaurant I was very pleased to see an excellent full page review for La Margherita in the Saturday, June 14th 2014 edition of the Cambridge News. Last time La Margherita was mentioned in the Cambridge News was when Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, dined there earlier this year. My friend and I usually enjoy a meal... More

Just had lunch here, highly recommend - great to visit an Italian that is not a chain restaurant- reasonably priced, authentic, tasty food.

Me and my friend ate here on a monday lunch time from the lunch time special menu. Although there isnt a lot to choose from we both easily found something we liked. The service was good and the waiter was very friendly and polite. The food didnt take too long to come and was very very tasty. You could tell... More

The food plus the 2 drinks totaling £40.60p. The portion sizes were... More
