We had not been here for some years but it is excellent as ever. You know you are in Cambridge England because of the crisp white table cloths, efficient discrete service and just a little bit more room between tables than an authentic Italian restaurant. The food is authentic Italian though, with a choice of Calzones, Pizzas real garlic bread... More

My husband and I have been going to this restaurant for years. It is family owned, which means you get to see familiar faces, and they are all so nice! The food is always excellent and they offer a good variety of food on their menu.

My starter and main (set menu) were tasty but the pasta was surprisingly not al dente for what I think seems like a 'proper' Italian restaurant. The waiter was happy to accommodate my request to omit an ingredient. We were seated by the door in spite of booking and eating relatively early, which wasn't the most conducive place for good...

Friendly staff fitted us in on a Saturday without a reservation. House red was nice, as was the pasta/mushroom/sausage dish we had. Would recommend.

Really good Italian restaurant close to Cambridge centre. Whenever we have eaten here we have enjoyed it, the food has been good and the service excellent. The lunch menu is particularly good value.

I've been coming to La Margherita for years and it never disappoints. The food is delicious and the service is always great. I would highly recommend this restaurant for lunch or dinner, and is perfect for families, friends and couples! Everyone I've brought here (and that's a lot of people) have loved it. I also recommend getting a takeaway pizza... More

We visited La Margarita as part of my hen party on Saturday night, the staff were attentive and got our orders perfectly right (something that turned out did not happen at all once during the rest of our weekend!) Having been to italy last year, this took me right back to the delicious food that we had there, the Salame... More

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
