La Pergola is a family run Italian Restaurant that serves quality, authentic Italian food in a relaxed and family-friendly environment. We are based at The Wheatsheaf Pub, a coaching inn dating back to the 15th Century, a few miles west of Cambridge city centre.
The emphasis at La Pergola is to produce wholesome home cooked food in a traditional Italian style. Where possible we use home grown vegetables and herbs that are cultivated on our allotment, and many items on the menu are homemade, such as the fennel and pork sausages, antipasti pickles and bread.
Our kitchen is home to a wood burning pizza oven. Our pizzas have a distinctive taste that is only achieved in a clay oven. The pizza dough is made fresh every day and from the dining room it is possible to watch your pizza being prepared.

The second time we've visit La Pergola. The food has been outstanding with a great selection to cover all tastes. The staff were friendly and helpful. The peaceful atmosphere and calm ambience are perfect for a nice chilled out night. The mixed grill was amazing.

Fantastic Valentine’s Day meal with excellent menu. Food service quick and attentive but drinks order slower but they were very busy.
Will definitely return

This was our first visit - for a Valentine's dinner. The restaurant was fully booked, and busy, but the food was excellent and the staff were charming. We will be going back again soon.

Went on Valentines evening with my wife. Restaurant very busy. Food served very quickly and felt very rushed. Suspect there were two sittings and we were on the first one. Food good, but did not relax and felt rushed. Unlikely to go back.

The familiar warm welcome from the same team - great food, buzzy atmosphere. Our local favourite. This time for a birthday celebration. Thank you all, we'll be back soon.

I have been wanting to go here for a good few years but never got round to it. I wish I'd gone sooner, the service was excellent, very friendly. It seems to be a good place for birthdays, there were four when we were there! The staff were friendly, and service was quick but not rushed. The restaurant had quite a few Italian customers, which is always a good sign that the food is authentic. Will definitely be visiting again.
