La Pergola is a family-run Italian restaurant set just outside of Cambridge. Owner and proprietor Giulio De Simone hails from south-western Italy and, for him, La Pergola is a way of sharing his deep-rooted passion for great Italian flavours with the community. Many of the ingredients used in the kitchen come from Italy, but the team also takes advantage of the restaurant’s adjoining allotment, where vegetables and herbs are grown and free-range hens produce a steady supply of eggs. There are various menus to choose from, including a children’s selection, a takeaway menu and an à la carte list, and each dish is homemade to order. The wood-burning oven gives La Pergola’s delicious pizzas that authentic Italian taste and classic pasta dishes like lasagne al forno and spaghetti carbonara are virtually irresistible. Finish your meal with a traditional Italian dessert such as creamy panna cotta or velvety smooth tiramisu.
