Buzzing restaurant with good food

We had nice starters and wonderful a pasta mains. Wine OK (well, we did have the cheapest). It was a Saturday night, busy and noisy but the service still excellent. The restaurant had a lovely glass vault above it which must be wonderful in Summer.

We stumbled on this little gem by chance; I'm so glad we did! Everything about it was top class - atmosphere, food choice, service, food, wine.... Can't fault them! We rounded off our lovely experience with a cocktail or 2 upstairs in the piano bar. Big thanks to all the great serving staff - what a credit they are to... More

Nice restaurant centrally located. Service was excellent. Clean and inviting establishment. Food was just OK. All three of us had something different but no one had a spectacular meal. I couldn't even finish my risotto. Desserts uninspiring.

In our view De Luca is one of the best restaurants in Cambridge - unfortunately if you aren't into the chains (Strada, Pizza Express, Nandos...) or the expensive places (Midsummer House etc) then this is a very small club! We were there with a couple of friends, started with scallops and squid, then main course shrimp linguine, salmon and bream.... More

Food and service are of the best standard. They make you feel home . Must visit when in Cambridge. We have tried a few meals and every time it is amazing. Service is extremely good and you get personal attention with a smile. Manager is extremely welcoming and his attention to detail is amazing as well. Nothing is too much... More

A lovely family run restaurant with a varied menu (not pizza). Comfortable and spacious dining room and excellent service. I had bruschetta followed by a huge piece of salmon ovenbaked. My husband had broccoli soup followed by pork fillet in prosciutto. Delicious flavours, melt-in-the-mouth and generous portions. Finished up with sorbet. Everything home made. Will definitely go there again, probably... More

Disappointing visit. We tried the 'Rapide' lunch menu, which was a set price of £8. When we arrived the waiter told us this was 2/3rd of the price of the normal main course on the menu and therefore we would receive 2/3 of a normal portion. He wasn't joking. I could have forgiven the tiny serving if it hadn't been... More

I took two clients here recently as a belated Christmas lunch and we had a really nice meal, my rump steak was cooked beautifully as were the chips that came with it. Service was great and everyone was friendly. We didn't need to book, plenty of room and with an open kitchen this instils confidence that the meal should live... More

Booked a lunch table here as reviews seemed good. Staff were friendly but a bit disorganised. The menu was limited and some of the dishes were not available. The house wine was french! In an italian restaurant? Traditional dishes, carbonara, cannelloni, lasagna etc were not on the menu strangely enough. We were not offered any bread before our meal which... More

We went here for lunch today, and mindful of some of the comments on good food but long waits went expecting a leisurely lunch. However we found the service was very good, order taken in 10 mins, starters arrived 10 mins later and 20 mins later the mains were there. The only wait was when we wanted the bill but... More
