I am lucky enough to be able to claim La Mimosa as my local Italian restaurant - and I've really fallen on my feet. This is a lovely place with a real family feel from Don and his team, who are always genuinely pleased to see you.
The restaurant is nicely arranged, with tables of all sizes, and they're far enough from each other that you can have a private conversation. (And the music is not intrusive - a failing in many other places.) There are real tablecloths, comfortable seats and good cutlery.
As for the food, last night our group had three of the specials and one old favourite, and they were all excellent - good, lean meat, excellent fish, and vegetables cooked perfectly.
You would go a long way to find a better restaurant for the money, and what a location - if you're ever in Cambridge, it's more than worth the five-minute walk along the river.
