I love this restaurant. In Cambridge there are too many chain Italitan restaurants and La Mimosa makes you realise just what more authentic Italian food tastes like. There is a great selection of food with some delicious pizzas and pastas including meat and fish. It has a great atmosphere and very friendly service.

Went last Sunday for a special Sunday lunch, have not been there for some time and found the same staff, (who recognized us immediately) same ambiance, excellent service and fantastic food - impressed as ever and on top of all that excellent value for money.

A really lovely position on the Cam with the best Italian food found outside Italy. Italian-owned and operated, with the warm and welcoming manner so typical of that country. Long established restaurant and it hasn’t lost any of its authenticity. A must visit.
