The best Italian in Cambridge. The top three restaurant in our ranking for the region. Its not about how portions look alike, not about how restaurant itself looks alike or where the reataurant is located. Its how straightforward and authentic Italian food can taste great and be priced right. This is not common in Cambridge. Highly recommend especially for families.

On Friday evening we felt like going out for pizza and thought of La Pergola. We visit this place from time to time and really like family feel of Italian hospitality. Food was great as always and burrata pizza was a lovely surprise for my Italian partner. Service is warm and friendly, especially Raffaele was lovely, always smiling and polite.... More

La Pergola was recommended to me by an Italian co-worker when I had asked him for an Italian restaurant in Cambridge. It is located slightly outside and easy to reach by car. We went for dinner as a group of four people and had drinks, starters, a main dish, and desserts. The atmosphere is relaxed, with a warm and attentive... More

My second visit having previously landed here for an excellent lunch with a large group. This time I took my partner along to sample the authentic pizzas made in a traditional pizza oven. Each of us declared we'd had the best one we'd had in years! Glancing around as the waiters delivered orders to other tables we could see several... More

The Pizza's are as fresh as they come. Which is not surprising when they have an original wood burning oven. There extremely friendly and will do almost anything for you if there not rushed of there feet. I will add though it would be wise to check your pizza when ordering a take away as they could get mixed up.... More

We just ate here with our toddler and they couldn't have been more friendly or accommodating. Our toddler got his own plate, breadsticks and lots of attention to keep him amused the whole meal! The food was fantastic, the best we've had outside of Italy. The seafood pasta had the most tantalising aroma from garlic and olive oil, the pizza... More

Met our friends here to have a meal and was very pleasantly surprised. Atmosphere was great and nearly all of the staff were Italians - seemed very authentic. That continued with the food which was really lovely and although the place was very busy we had our table for the whole evening. Would highly recommend

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.
