Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a wonderful restaurant in a perfect location. I only wish that I lived nearer as I would definitely be a regular visitor! The service is both efficient and friendly and the food is amazing. If I am fortunate enough to return to Cambridge...this will be top of my ‘go to’ list. I can recommend the crayfish and crab ravioli.More

Amazing gem of a restaurant! Visitors to Cambridge for the day. Food was incredible, service excellent. As regular visitors to Italy, this is about as authentic as it gets. Love it, just wish we lived closer. Thank you, you made our day x

This was our first visit to La Mimosa and it was an excellent choice for a Valentine's Day meal. We received a very warm welcome and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is very well presented and clean with a very good...atmosphere. We both had the sea bass followed by a pannacotta dessert and it was beautifully cooked and presented. We can confidently recommend La Mimosa and will definitely be back. Thank you for a lovely evening.More

We were disappointed with the approach to customer service. We booked and paid a deposit for a group of 12 people, however on the day this number reduced. We only found out that we would be charged for the non attendees when the bill came...at the end of the night and we examined whether the deposit had been taken off. There was no mention of any charges that would be applied when booking or when arriving at the restaurant. The restaurant was not busy and there was a number of empty tables when we arrived. We were in fact put on a different table to the one that we booked. Now if they had turned people away we would have expected to be charged however on a quiet night we asked why this was being applied. The response from what appeared to be the owner was unexpected and verging on aggressive and completely unnecessary. We wont be returning.More

My wife and I met my daughter and her partner here for lunch on Saturday. We had a lovely time and a very warm welcome and delicious food. At first, the restaurant seemed a little empty but then this was 12 o’clock noon. After a...few minutes the place soon filled up with a variety of diners. Enjoyed ourselves immensely and hope to come back one day.More

I was very glad to receive an email that I could use when I called the restaurant, so I could organise the event. It didn’t have one on their website for some reason. Once I had this, I dealt with the owner, Cali who was...amazing and took all my menu choices. I was running a course dinner for 30 delegates so it was very important that it went well. The evening went so well. I loved the venue and the staff, I met Cali and her daughter. I hear it’s a family run business. I loved that it was totally unspoilt and not pretentious, and the food reflected that somehow. Everyone enjoyed it. It’s truly a little gem of a restaurant in Cambridge, it’s completely unique. I’d love to come back on a sunny day and sit next to the river.More

We dined at La Mimosa for my daughter's 21st birthday party and the hospitality we received was the best I've ever experienced. Nothing was too much trouble, the staff were friendly, genuinely caring and so helpful, including organising our decorations and taking family photos. As...for the food, we've just returned from Italy and we unanimously agreed this was better. And our sincere thanks for the most beautiful tiramisu birthday cake, which tasted incredible!More

Beautiful Italian restaurant. The food was absolutely wonderful, the best carbonara I've ever had! The staff were very friendly and helpful and couldn't do more to help with menu choices.

Went in early July and was staying at a nearby hotel who recommended a proper Italian restaurant, not a chain pizza pasta place. This is authentically Italian run by Mamma and Papa with their daughter serving so a true family business. Both the evenings we...visited, the place was busy ( you need to book) service was quick, friendly and professional. Food was cooked fresh and waiting times at an absolute minimum between ordering and receiving your food. if you have enough room for sweet you must try one even if you have to share it. Portions were a good size, wine was sensibly priced and overall cost no more than a high street chain. The setting is on the river and there are enough tables inside and out to enjoy the weather. Will definitely return at he earliest opportunity next time i am in Cambridge.More

Hi there. I am fairly sure there is a wine list, but the best thing would be to contact the Restaurant.
