Fantastic lunch today at La Margherita, delicious food with a very reasonably priced set menu. A little out of the centre of Cambridge, but we worth a visit.

Booked last minute and this place was in a great location right near the river. Very quick service and friendly too. Very busy place and with a great atmosphere. We had garlic bread and then the most AMAZING carbonara I have ever eaten!! Needless to say I made sure I walked the mile back to the hotel to work it... More

The service was friendly and efficient, the restaurant was pretty full, which is always a good sign. The food is straighforward Italian, much as you'd expect - pizzas, pasta, antipasti etc - nothing exceptional but everything we had was good. The bill for two courses and a couple of Peroni each came out at about £23 a head, which we... More

I've been to La Margherita a couple of weeks ago and I enjoyed the Italian atmosphere. Authentic Italian food. I had risotto and it was perfect. The staff is friendly and helpful, especially in the selection of wines. Very good ice-cream as well. Last but not least, the cappuccino was really well made and it was perfect at the end... More

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
