First thing to say was that the service was brilliant. The waiter recognised we were out on our feet after a long day and took the order without delay and the food arrived much sooner than other diners who had arrived before us. Thank you! I had the penne with cream, tomato, mushroom and sausage which was delicious and plentiful.... More

My Husband and I went for a Saturday lunch to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. The meal was absolutely faultless and the service impeccable. I can highly recommend the roasted vegetable and salted ricotta starter, the pear, walnut and gorgonzola pizza and the nutella and banana dessert! All incredibly delicious. There was a good selection of vegetarian food and gluten free... More

Used to be a regular here many moons ago but for one reason or other we hadn't visited in recent years. A clear mistake! Had a really good meal tonight, in an early evening visit on the spur of the moment after an afternoon's shopping. An absolute treat, wonderful food (the risotto is top notch - and I am picky...

Used to go here a lot years ago and decided it was time for a revisit. Very pleasant staff, and a nice table upstairs by the window to people watch. Ordered Crostini to share to nibble on,tasty! Followed by starters,mains,puddings,Limocellos and coffee ( not forgetting a very nice bottle of Chilean red) all for an amazing £84.00 !!! All the... More

La Margherita is a superb family-run Italian restaurant in the heart of Cambridge. We pre-booked a Saturday evening for a party of 10, as we were celebrating our twin daughter's 16th birthday with family in Cambridge. On arrival we found our table was in the main restaurant with a great atmosphere and had been decorated with 16 confetti - a... More

We have been coming here for many years and it consistently good. I had a "bambino" portion of Carbonara to start and my wife had a new addition to the menu being the pear and Gorgonzola salad. Both were really good. I then had the breaded chicken which was also good. My wife had the pizza which are lovely thin... More

Visited La Margerhita last night with extended family for my twin nieces 16th Birthday celebrations. My sister had booked in advance and it was one of the only restaurants that would accept a booking in advance for a large group. Fantastic service by very attentive staff. The table had been decorated with '16' confetti. The menu was varied with dishes... More

A large group of us ate at La Margherita last night for a friend's stag. While not bad, it's nothing to shout about. The antipasti starters are fine, but it's difficult to get those wrong. My main however was a let down, a seafood risotto. I chose it having passed someone eating it on my way in and it looks... More

I have a strong preference for independent local businesses and do my best to support them as much as I can, so for this reason alone I wish I could be a little more enthusiastic about La Margherita. It's a long-established family business (I think there may be a link with Don Pasquale on Market Square) and on the evening... More

We have visited this family run restaurant many times over the years and have always found it to be consistently good. Really lovely ingredients especially the salads which are really fresh , never the limp bland fare so common in many restaurants. In fact it is really like being back in Italy with all the classic dishes backed up by... More
