About Us

We’re not saving lives, just making pizzas!

That’s one of our favourite sayings at Maurizio Dining & Co. We’re a local and independent Italian restaurant and wine bar in Cambridge. We ask everyone to relax and taste the real Italy with our gourmet pizzas, homemade pasta sauces and to drink wine from small Italian vineyards.

Our homemade rustic tomato sauce for pasta and pizza is super popular! Our pizzas get rave reviews too – “the best pizza I have ever had” “brilliant pizza – new favourite” “If you want authentic Italian in Cambridge, go here”.

Maurizio grew up in Italy and his first passion was always food and wine. Soon this also became a passion for the whole family and we decided to follow the dream and opened Maurizio Dining & Co. in May 2017.

We’re open Monday to Saturday from 5pm for eating in, collection and delivery. We love being part of the Mill Road community as there’s always so much going on. We host events such as wine tastings, art shows, vintage clothes pop-ups and our Negroni Lounge Bar (the back room) is available to hire out.

Maurizio says:
“From homemade pizza dough to tiramisù, I use family recipes as a starting point and then add my own unique twist. Eating and drinking is the Italian way to live “la dolce vita”.

We’re part of the Cambridge Food Alliance and recently won a Bronze Environment Award. Our Environment Policy outlines our aims.
