Description: We are a family run Restaurant sitauted a few miles west of Cambridge City Centre. We serve authentic, traditional Italian food, and where possible use homegrown vegetables and herbs that are cultivated on our adjoining allotment. Our pizzas are cooked in a Wood Burning clay oven and our pizza dough is freshly made each morning. Our menu features many typically Italian foods that we are proud to make using the traditional methods and recipes handed down through generations.

“Very Friendly authentic Italian Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2012

The large dining room is a bit of a period piece but somehow that adds to the authentic charm. The manager is particularly friendly and the service is good. We live locally and use it a lot for Sunday lunch. We always choose the pizza which is the best we eat anywhere outside Italy. It has a proper wood fired oven and that makes a big difference. We love the place.

“A Perfect Day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2011

We've just celebrated our ruby wedding by inviting 44 guests to lunch at La Pergola.
The restaurant looked after us well, the service was first class and the food was magnificent. “Super meal”, “really enjoyable”, “excellent food”, were just some of the comments from our guests. The relaxed atmosphere and the friendly, welcoming staff made it a very special and memorable occasion. We'll certainly be going there again.

“Fabulous restaurant for all occasions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2011

This restaurant was recommended to me, and is well worth a visit. The family serve a wide range of gutsy Southern Italian-style food, and it is absolutely delicious. The service is relaxed and friendly and it is like dining with friends. Love it!

“A little bit of Italy on the A603!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2011 via mobile

We visited this restaurant on a Sunday lunchtime with the family. Very busy with families having lunch. Very noisy, but that is down to the acoustics of the room.
Food was excellent. Large portions with really great taste. More like home made cuisine, rather than a top notch restaurant.
Prices, reasonable. 2 courses for £12.95. children courses £7.95 for 2. Good value.
Service acceptable. A bit slow at times and took a while to clear table completely, but I think it was just very busy.
Overall, a pleasant dining experience, although a bit noisy. Will be back for an evening meal, when I expect it to completely different, from a family Sunday lunch.

For atmosphere, food, wine, service and value for money it's hard to beat.
