A group of four had pasta dishes, which were fine; nothing to shout about. The service was polite and efficient. I would rate this restaurant as "good", but TA does not offer that option.

I've never noticed this place before but we were wowed by it. After being chilled in the previous restaurant we had the need for espresso! We happened on the right place. This is a cosy family run Italian Café serving great coffee and some great ice cream creations. The waiter was brilliant and interesting and interested in us. There is... More

My favourite Italian restaurant in Cambridge: great food; relaxed atmosphere; friendly (but not intrusive) staff. The food appears authentic and is made with good quality ingredients. Altogether a different class of dining to the numerous Italian chain restaurants which populate Cambridge city centre.

My wife and I were excited to finally have some authentic Italiano in Cambridge - alas, this was not the place. There was nothing crusty about the crostini, my pizza was no better than a frozen pizza and my wife's aubergine rolls were basically a giant mound of cheese with bits of aubergine. I must also add that the pizza... More

I wanted somewhere outside the centre to stop off with my son for a break from the trek around the colleges. We found La Margherita by accident but it was well found. It was not too busy but it was soon clear that many of the other diners were regulars and that is a good sign. We had a two... More
