We visited La Mimosa for our end of conference dinner last night. Cali and her staff were extremely friendly, efficient and accommodating with our large (44 people) party. The food was amazing and the service absolutely impeccable! Everyone was extremely impressed with everything and we will definitely return!

This place is the neighbourhood Italian that everyone wishes they had around the corner. It's family run, friendly, tasty, and good value. If only there were more like it in the area.

My husband and I frequent this lovely Cambridge gem. La Mimosa has excellent and inexpensive pizza, which is great for a student budget. The main menu offers a nice variety of yummy dishes, and the desserts are delectable. Between the two of us, we have tried just about everything on the menu, and have never been disappointed. Best of all,... More

I really enjoyed the excellent food and the very friendly service at this Italian restaurant in the centre of Cambridge. The place is right along the river Cam and has a very nice atmosphere both inside as well as outside. Highly recommended for a pleasant meal, either business or for leisure. I will definitely come again.

My partner and I were passing and the weather was good so thought we would have a drink and enjoy the view. The staff were really friendly and the place seemed nice. Unfortunately the drinks were pricey, we didn't look at the menus so I am unable to comment on the food.

Visiting sister and brother in law for the weekend. Had a beautiful meal the garlic mushrooms in a lovely rich creamy sauce and the fillet steak was outstanding well worth the visit

Nice location but. The food is alright but nothing to write home about. From experience, would steer clear of the pizzas.
