Genuine family run restaurants are few and far between but that is exactly what you find in La Mimosa, situated in an ideal location at the end of Thompson’s Lane and the corner of Jesus Green.
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.
