La Pergola at The Wheatsheaf
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.

We came here as it was my dad's choice for his early birthday/ fathers day present.
It's on a busy road and I would never have thought to go here, but am glad we did as it was really nice.
The staff were so friendly. They were very welcoming to my daughter, who is only 11 months.
The food was delicious, I would've happily eaten it all over again!
It was slightly pricey, but good for a treat night.
A really great mid week meal, unhurried friendly, great service and most of all really great food.
It was the son's birthday (13) and he totally enjoyed it.
As a family we will be back
Highly recommended as I don't think you can be disappointed by the really great food.
Very friendly restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere. Great service and good authentic Italian food. We were recommended here by the owners of the cottage we stayed in , well worth the drive to get there.
Many years ago at our first visit we thought the Pizza was overrated but we recently went for a second time and chose the what I would call International menu items and they were excellent.
The restaurant was extremely busy and had a great ambience. Children were there but well behaved and no problem. The staff were so friendly it made the evening.
Great food as usual! Not the best place for conversation as can get very noisy but the service and food is great.
Brilliant food, some of the best Italian we’ve had. Will be back.
My husband and I eat here regularly, it never disappoints.
Noone front of house. Booked for 5, table set for 6. Only one brand of gin despite being attached to a pub. No orange, wrong beer etc. Not a good start.
My starter was lovely (mussels) but my son had the calamari. No sauce or dip. When we asked for it, by the time it came the starter was cold. After asking for it the waiter did numerous other things like setting a table etc while the starter went cold. The bresaola was ok but nothing special.
The wine was brought to the table with the cork out - you just don't do that...
Despite the wonderful looking pizza oven my pizza was so so, I had better at someone's home recently. The pasta sauce was oversalted. The veal was nice enough but came with roasted potatoes not saute as advertised and when pointed out the waiter laughed it off.
The puddings were nice.
I had 2 birthday girls with me (noted on booking form). Slightly annoying to see another table get happy birthday sung as dessert with candle brought to table while we got nothing.
Finally a lady who had hardly smiled all evening and just looked generally annoyed, came to table and very abruptly told us if we wanted to pay by card we'd need to come to till as the WiFi didn't go to the table. The message was fine. The way it was delivered was not.
I would not go back.
As usual, everything was really good - food, service etc. Can't fault it! We didn't think our Grandson would be able to eat the whole large pizza, but as you can see, he most certainly could!!
La Pergola is a very friendly restaurant with lovely food. Happy to recommend any day!
great place to go for any occassion,food,service,staff all excellent,will be back soon.
The food is absolutely delicious, served by very friendly staff who were more than helpful! 10/10
This is the best Italian restaurant around, & we come here for any type of meal - Saturday night for two, family occasions, Sunday lunch etc. We have never been disappointed with the food quality, service, variety, ambiance or friendliness!
Good pizza, nice staff. We would prefer more choices on pizza's (especially vegetarian ones).
Excellent starters, overall a bit pricey.
Visited with friends on the tuesday then returned Friday with family. Both occasions fantastic food and service. Staff working socks off. Very busy and 100% on service. We will definitely be regulars now. Highly recommend
Always good, nice staff and no rushing!good pizza and inexpensive wine.
We go here regularly. Food is great and prices reasonable - the only thing I'd flag is that they seem to have a regular turnover of serving staff and that they always seem to struggle to cope as the restaurant fills up. By the time you get to dessert during the evening you can expect to be waiting quite a long time to be served ...
Me and my fiance always come atleast once a month. We really like it here, all the staff are amazing! And they always remember me and rob, they are friendly down to earth, always pays me lovely compliments on the way I look, which makes me want to come back more. I always reccomend it to our family and friends. Thank you for a lovely meal on Saturday, and I'm sure me and rob will be back very soon. Keep up the great work.
Many Thanks Lou & Rob.
I liked the restaurant a lot and the food was great, I will recommend and we will be back very soon
Excellent authentic Italian food - great pizzas and pasta. Friendly and efficient service and great atmosphere. An Italian oasis - well worth the drive out of Cambridge! La Pergola never disappoints - we love it!
Having a meal in the restaurant is just like a visit to Italy. The food is excellent. The staff are friendly and efficient, and there is a real family atmosphere.
We were surprised when the bottle of wine we orderee arrived at the table opened. The waitress said that they always open bottles in the bar. But our expectation was that it would be opened in front of us. Ive no idea if the restaurant has a large tank of the wine out back but it didn't taste great. The food wasn't much better. It's a pity as it could have been really good.
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 :)
We eat here regularly, food is lovely, especially the pizza. House wine is good, staff are excellent.
We're never disappointed with this restaurant. The food, service, staff attitude & everything about it is perfect!
Delicious authentic Italian food. The veggie gluten free options were great. Friendly staff.
Excellent selection of authentic Italian dishes, friendly service and surprisingly reasonable prices. Whenever we have something to celebrate, we choose La Pergola for the occasion.
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.
An excellent family-run restaurant similar to one you might find in Italy. Friendly staff and good food.
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.
Fantastic friendly service.
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.
We have visited this restaurant a couple of times and each time the food has been very good. The staff are friendly and lovely surroundings.
first time visit to la pergola,will definatley return,great food and service,excellant choice of menu.would recommend a visit
I enjoyed a great lunch here with my daughter. The Lasagne was fantastic and me daughter enjoyed Calzone. Well flavoured and tasted like Italy.
Was recommended by good friend Laura and I wasn’t disappointed
Food was lovely very authentic Italian which is just what I wanted
Wine was recommended by waiter and a fantastic choice, wish I had noted the name
Will definitely return ❤️
I have been o La pergola many times and never been disappointed. Very good.
As usual, La Pergola was great. Even though they were quite busy, at 6.30pm, service was fast & efficient! Thank you Rosa & crew!
Belated meal for Valentine's day. Great service as always, thank you!
