Another excellent evening eating out in lovely Cambridge. Nice friendly and relaxed atmosphere for a Saturday evening, especially if Italian cuisine meets with your approval. One of the best Bruschettas in town, a great range of mains and desserts to die for (very much so if you have a particular passion for ice cream based afters!). I'd add that their... More

I've lived in Cambridge for over twenty years and I'm embarrassed to have only frequented La Margherita twice. For some reason I forget it's there, even thought it's in a fairly central area. Both visits we enjoyed great service and food to match. I've had their pizza and pasta, and both were top notch, and the atmosphere friendly and convivial.... More

Had a lovely meal here today. Restaurant were very accommodating as arrived early but this was no trouble. Staff all very friendly and service super slick but not too overbearing. We had 3 children with us who were well looked after with offer of smaller portions of most items on the menu. I had lasagne which was really delicious and... More

Went here with a friend. Has one of the best bruscetta that I've ever had followed by the Pizza Con Patata. Potato Pizza... It was huge, and delicious. I then followed it up with a banana split with the delicious Gelato they have there. The service was very friendly and attentive. I'll definitely be visiting again.

After missing out on tickets to the cinema, my girlfriend and I had 3 hours to kill. We were hungry so we chose here for a pizza. We opened with a bowl of olives which complemented my beer and her orange juice. We each got a pizza to eat (obviously) with mine topped by anchovies, capers etc (a little salty... More

Eaten here many times over the years. Well placed close to the centre of town, opposite Magdalene College. Good authentic menu with plenty of choice, not just pizza and pasta. Food is delicious and very reasonably priced for Cambridge

If you want authentic, reasonably priced, interesting Italian food then go here. Comfy seats, spotlessly clean, friendly service and a lovely atmosphere even early on a Monday evening. Partner chose from the set menu: tomato soup; chicken in a tomato and mascarpone sauce served with roasted potatoes; pistachio ice cream, meringue and chocolate sauce; coffee - all delicious and generous...

Right in the tourist bit of Cambridge but not a rip off. Had the two course fixed price menu at lunch and for £10.50 good value for money. Good service as well. Good choice on the fixed price menu. You know it good as people from the colleges eat there.

This restaurant is easy to find because it is in central Cambridge. It has excellent Italian cuisine and the best service I have ever had at a restaurant.
