Went on a Saturday night wih friends. Lively, fun atmosphere. Started with peach bellinis and vodka martinis and a mixed antipasti to start with between the four of us which was very good. WIne by the carafe was fine. Three of us thought the food was average (risotto, ravioli, pasta) and one thought it was very good ( the chicken). Our waiter, Andreas, was fantastic. Attentive without being intrusive, helpful and with a great sense of humour. Everything a waiter should be and more. Finished with grappa and coffees. £180 for the four of us. Would recommend for a fun night out.

I had an early dinner with my son and daughter-in-law on a Saturday evening. We didn't book in advance but were immediately shown to a table when we arrived at 6.30 providing we could vacate by 8.30 - no problem. The place was popular and filled up quickly. A lively atmosphere, Plenty of staff who were friendly and efficient. We sampled their cocktail of the day which was a great way to start and set the tone! The waitress said my steak might take 25 minutes, but steaks don't take that long and indeed it came in little over 10 minutes. Very tasty. My son had the special pasta dish of the day and my daughter chose to have two starters instead of one main course. Between us we had a glass of white wine and a carafe of red going for their "recommendation" in each case. They were fine. We followed with a desert of Amaretto and Coffee poured over vanilla ice cream. Very good. All-in-all we very much enjoyed our experience. Cost about £30 per head which we thought was reasonable. The menu was fairly simple but with sufficient variety to suit all. Not sure I'd book this restaurant if wanting a really special meal, but I would happily go again for a very pleasant meal any time.

Six of us went there for Father's day and had a lovely meal. We all enjoyed our choices and it wasn't expensive - and the service was excellent. This was out first time there but will definitely go back again and try something else on the menu.

Just a quick note to say that once again we had a great meal at De Luca's! Due to recent new arrival to the family it had been a while since our last visit but I'm pleased to say the food and service was as good as ever. It was also pleasing to see that their kids menu is proper food and not the standard chicken nuggets and chips option we're often faced with elsewhere. My Dad likes to think of himself as being a bit of a wine buff and he was very pleased with the selection of wines on offer. Hopefully we can convince the grandparents to babysit one night so we can head back for a meal one evening!

We found this place while wandering the streets looking for something to eat on a cloudy Sunday evening.

There was just the right amount of choice on the menu; we went for one of the daily specials and one of the a la carte main dishes, as well as a starter, desserts, wine and liqueur coffees.

Everything tasted amazing and the staff were so friendly and helpful that we had a thoroughly relaxed evening. The couple next to us were having pasta dishes which looked delicious as well as being generous portion sizes.

If we are in Cambridge again this would definitely be a place for a revisit!
