I've taken family here many times. The service is excellent, and the food is just as good. Great family run restaurant, reasonably priced and amzing ice cream. I've taken adults here too, once the night after eating at Alimentum, they preferred the food at La Margherita. Enough said.

We had a relaxed experience at this Italian restaurant – probably because it was empty. Table service was a strength, both discrete and professional. Whilst pizza and pasta mains seemed fresh and reasonably well prepared, we were a little disappointed by the poor quality ingredients in the Antipasto classico which really failed to deliver and should be rethought. The most... More

We had a really excellent meal here. It's a good menu and wine list. Between the four of us we had a variety of dishes, all of which were superb. The staff were friendly and helpful. The price is reasonable. I would happily go again.

The food is excellent. The wine list is excellent. The staff are very friendly. Surely one of the best restaurants in Cambridge, and perfect if you're looking for an authentic Italian experience. My recommended starter at the moment is the insalata di pera, and for a main, the penne alla boscaiola. And make sure you have a grappa di moscato... More

As fairly regular visitors to La Margherita myself and my partner were so pleased when we realised a couple of weeks back that they now deliver using the Deliveroo service!! We ordered online but we wanted a little tweak to our order (we usually have spaghetti not linguine), we usually ask for this in the restaurant and it's never a... More

We had a surprise dinner tonight here with friends and everything was amazing. The service was great. The starters, mains and desserts-- you won't be disappointed. House wine was also delicious. This place was the closest to real Italian food that I've found in the area in almost 3 years.

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...

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
