Description: We are a family run Restaurant sitauted a few miles west of Cambridge City Centre. We serve authentic, traditional Italian food, and where possible use homegrown vegetables and herbs that are cultivated on our adjoining allotment. Our pizzas are cooked in a Wood Burning clay oven and our pizza dough is freshly made each morning. Our menu features many typically Italian foods that we are proud to make using the traditional methods and recipes handed down through generations.

“How is it number 21 in Cambridge?”
Reviewed 27 August 2010

Yes, it is a buzzy, friendly Pizzeria, and the service is quite good. But by 9.45 on Friday night it was empty and the staff sitting down to a Pizza. Antipasti were indifferent and Pizza Express could teach them how to cook a Pizza. Perhaps worth a visit if you live within a two mile radius- otherwise, thereis better value - and better atmospehere - in Cambridge itself or the villages

“Great food but restaurant could do with some updating”
Reviewed 15 August 2010

Went for dinner with 3 others and overall the food was very good.

The starters were okay but not very inspiring, I had prawn/salmon salad - it was okay but a bit bland and the prawns were still slightly warm as they'd just been defrosted... the others had calamari which was just okay.

The pasta and pizzas were much better - in fact my carbonara was superb and the pizzas were authentic and delicious.

Desserts were average, the home made tiramisu was good.

Overall the restaurant feels as if its stuck in the 90's, the decor is lacking warmth and character, even though family photos are dotted around the place they are too modern with the dated decor. The tables are too small as are the plates - why serve a fantastic pasta in a small bowl... as you eat it slides out the sides.

The wine list is limited - 5 white, 5 red, 3 fizzy and 2 rose.

Service was fine, not brilliant but not bad.

My rating would dramatically increase if the atmosphere was better and if the restaurant were brought more up to date.

“An OK place”
Reviewed 25 May 2010

I have visited this place a cou-le of times and both times I would describe the food as adequate. If you are looking for top notch grub, then this is not the place - but it is not bad either.
Wholesome Italian food in a nice atmosphere. Service was good. Will look for alternatives in future.
