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.

My group really liked the pizzas. I had Aubergine Parmigiano which was ok but came with roast potatoes which was a bit strange. I know it was Sunday lunchtime but would have much preferred garlic bread. Two of us had apple strudel which was a bit over cooked.

This is a really friendly restaurant with warm welcoming atmosphere and great Italian food. Wide-ranging menu which suited a large family gathering (which included vegetarians) and exceptionally good value. Starters are large so sharing is a good option - desserts are a MUST :)

Rustic charm, authentic Italian vibe - felt transported to a holiday in Italy! Food tasty and generous portions but quite pricey for what it was. Not ideal for younger children.

Best pizzas (and service) for miles. Don't bother going into Cambridge, or if you're already in Cambridge and want pizza, it's well worth the 15 minute drive.

Unfortunately, both I and my friend were disappointed with the pizza offered here (my friend sent his back) - the base appeared to be undercooked, having a weak consistency. However, the ingredients were fresh, and the desserts were very good. We were compensated for the loss of the meal and the staff were generally attentive, but overall, this was a very disappointing experience, given the generally very positive reviews for the restaurant, which had persuaded us to book here. I would allow a second chance, but cannot rush to recommend it.

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.

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.

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.

This restaurant can be quite busy during weekends. The pizza is excellent with a lot of choice and the ingredients are well selected. This is baked in a wood fired oven making it extremely delicious. The cloudy lemonade is also excellent.
