Good food as always, and rapid service. Timing the main restaurant with the pizzaoilo was a bit tricky, and one on the table was left waiting 5 minutes for a pizza after the rest of the group had their meals, but otherwise a very pleasant experience.

We have been to Gattuso many times and the food is always fantastic. I felt this time, though, that the service was a bit hit and miss. The staff are fantastic but the food was delivered at different times. My husband’s pizza came out first & he had almost finished by the time my friend and I received our pasta and parmigiana.
Then they brought out the limoncello cake and cannoli while I waited another 10 minutes for my chocolate fondant.
I’d much prefer that the food all came out at the same time. It was, however, delicious as ever. I love that they’ve expanded the restaurant so the tables have been spread out and it doesn’t feel cramped. It has a lovely ambiance.

2nd visit in 3 weeks. This time it was quite crowded, we were crammed into the corner table, hard to get servers’ attention and consequently service was far slower than the previous time. Was also sad that some Sicilian desserts were no longer on the menu.

2 key things come to mind - the menu selection was great ( love it when it is hard to choose as there are several items you wanted to try) and everything we ordered was outstanding ... and, quite importantly, authentic Italian. This last point is important as people might have a slightly different expectation of what Italian food should taste like based on how it’s modified for English expectations elsewhere. For us, it’s awesome that they are sticking with the authentic recipes, including desserts. Looking forwards to returning.

Service was great and waiting tunes were normal, although the restaurant was not full when we were there.

Excellent food... we shared a Sicilian antipasti platter, followed by a pasta and a pizza dish. All were authentically Italian and cooked to perfection. Good wine selection. What really makes it shine, though, is the friendly service: you would definitely come back for the food, but you’ll be planning your next visit before you get out the door because these guys are so hospitable.

We booked Gattuso's on spec, having driven past it a number of times and noticed how busy it always was - now we have been there, we can see why - the food was excellent and the staff were really friendly - one of the few restaurants in Cambridge that we have been to where we would return without hesitation.

It's always nice to visit this cosy neighbourhood restaurant. Expanded now, giving more space between tables, which is even better. Family friendly pizza and pasta, with a reasonably priced wine list - what's not to like?!

I came with my daughter. It was fabulous. We were really hungry and our starters came promptly. We chose swordfish which was cooked to perfection. The staff were welcoming and friendly. It was beautifully clean and neat. I am going back with my husband this week - I hope. It’s so good, I might not get a table!!

Definitely the best pizza in Cambridge. Can’t wait for their new fish restaurant to open next door.
