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.
Warm friendly welcome, table ready prepared for us. Excellent food, the choice was from an extensive menu and all the food was lovely and well presented. Nice atmosphere in the dining room, which was busy.
The only slight drawback was the service....although we realised that some guests (ourselves included actually) were known to the staff who chatted to them... we would have appreciated this rather more if we had been given our drinks first!
But the quality of all the food was really very good indeed, and no doubt we shall return again soon.
Our first visit to this extremely authentic Italian restaurant for their Valentines night.
An excellent menu was supported by friendly and efficient staff with decorated tables and a red rose for all ladies creating a lovely atmosphere and thoroughly enjoyable evening.
We will certainly return.
Warm atmosphere, friendly staff and excellent food.
We love the attention to detail and the great atmosphere which comes from it being a family run restaurant. The food is always beautifully presented and cooked.
Although we have been to La Pergola many times in recent years - we love everything about them! - my wife and I had never tried their Valentine's Evening before. It was amazing from start to finish..and my wife even got a red rose given to her at the end of the evening.
Valentines evening is very special in an Italian restaurant and this meal was certainly that. A slight hiccough over the table when we first arrived but soon sorted and seated. The service is really very good, not intrusive but always available and nothing too much trouble. The steaks were cooked to perfection and the lemon sauce with the ravioli was very delicate and light. The warm brownie melted in your mouth, a perfect end to a fabulous meal. The prosecco was a nice touch and our bottle of Sangiovese was fruity and light, most enjoyable.
Great food and quick, friendly service on a busy night
Great food and service! Delicious antipasti!
fantastic food with a genuine Italian atmosphere!!
As always when we visit, the food is excellent and hugely enjoyed. Lots of variety and includes plenty of English Cooking together with Italian dishes "to die for".
There is a family atmosphere, as you should expect in an Italian, and normally quite a lot of noise. It is a happy place and can be enjoyed on and on.
The food was really good, as good as the food We usually get back in Italy. Great service too. The restaurant is very cosy.
Nice atmosphere in a family restaurant. Our waitress was excellent at responding when we needed to finish earlier than hoped. Food was nice and very good value.
Celebrating our house move
Here they offer great italian food at very reasonable prices. It is very spacious and by eating early it was quite quiet which was important as my friend is a little deaf and we were meeting up to have a chat. All four of us were delighted with our choices - we shall have to return as the other's choices looked so good we shall have to try them! Easy parking and 10 minutes' drive from the centre of Cambridge. Wonderful!
Was expecting better food from previous comments and from what I had heard. The food was just ok, a bit disappointing.
Delicious, authentic italian food with attentive service and an agreeable ambience. Would definitely go back again and would recommend to friends.
By far and quite simply one of the best meals I have had in a long time.
My family were made to feel welcome as soon as we walked in. The waiter was first class in taking our orders and his interaction with our young son.
The food quite simply was brilliant, each member of my family said there meal was stunning. The deserts as well were top draw, especially the Vanilla Cheesecake with the Amaretto base was one of the best deserts I have had in a very long time.
As we have just moved to the area we shall not only go back for another meal, but also make use of the pub next door as they had a fine selection of Italian beers & Adnams ales.
Thank you so much.
* Five Stars
A good reliable Italian restaurant -- with a wide range of traditional dishes, including an excellent selection of really authentic pizzas. The wines are excellent and the atmosphere very buzzy.
We dine at La Pergola very regularly and without exception it keeps its 'very Italian feel. The staff are always very obliging and will tailor your order to suit your requirements. As one of our guests commented 'this is the nearest thing to eating in Italy as we are likely to get. Food and ambience superb.' A big thank you to all the staff. They are all worth a mention.
We've gone to La Pergola several times with my husband and the service has always been amazing. The food quality is always consistent and definitely recommend it. The ambience is very nice and cozy, makes you feel like you're in Italy.
Fantastic meal as always. Fish of the day is always outstanding!
The service was very attentive and swift. Food great. A lovely venue.
Arrived 15 minutes early but seated immediately. At same time order was taken and drinks arrived inside 5 minutes. Meal arrived inside 15 minutes and was superb. Even my wife ate her whole meal including sweet course which is unusual for her. Cannot fault this experience one bit and will definitely be returning in the not too distant future.
As usual, everything about our meal was first class! Thank you, Rosa, Domenico & staff!
Very good value for money. Wide selection on the menu. Staff were very helpful. Brilliant.
Excellent food, lovely atmosphere and friendly staff
We were disappointed to be asked to leave before we were ready,but we had been there the best of two hours.This has never happened before.
I would recommend going in as late as possible. It was manic when we went in and were shown to table straight away. And given menus but it was at least 15 mins before we were asked about a drink and we actually got the two drinks one of which was tap water after 40 mins even after the arrival of our starters which were 36 mins. Can not fault the food and the fact it is busy shows the food is good but a lot of tables emptied about 8.30 so prob a good time to arrive would be then. Staff all friendly and pleasant just very busy
Love this place. Food amazing staff are friendly love coming here
Fantastic atmosphere, reminds me of traditional family tavernas I used to visit growing up in Greece. Food is great and the staff are helpful and accommodating. It's lively and bustling, which I love. One of my favourite places to go!
Always an excellent experience for the taste buds, we take our two children and the pasta and pizza are brilliant, so are the deserts. Love this place!
Lovely family run restaurant with good quality italian cooking. Pizzas exceptional. Highly recommend
Amazing food at this restaurant. Everyone at our table thoroughly enjoyed their food. The staff are all so friendly and efficient. Just perfect.
I've been to the Pergola a number of times and have always had very good food. Unfortunately if you go in the evening the service is very slow and it's very noisy.
Enjoyed the quality of the food, authentic Italian cuisine. Pizza’s are excellent. Good family run business.
Service could be a bit speedier but staff very friendly. Busy and lively place. Book early!
The food is outstanding.
The service is good but we were left waiting for longer than expected to make our initial drinks order and then our meal order. Other than that, we would return.
Food was fantastic and service excellent, lovely evening celebrating our daughters birthday.
Authentic Italian restaurant with really good food and service. The pizzas are amazing. This was our first visit but will definitely go back there soon.
Very authentic, great food, good value, reminded us of a beautiful restaurant we enjoyed in Tuscany!
As usual, we can't fault any aspect of this fab venue! Great food, great service, great atmosphere! Magnifico!
