The food is always gorgeous.. I've been going since it opened years ago and the view cannot be beaten. My only gripe is the friendliness of the staff.. They come across as abrupt. I know summer is busy but similar restaurants manage it. :-/

Very busy with lots of bookings so limited free tables, but got in just after opening time for dinner. Food good, interesting desserts.

Visited on a busy Saturday evening without a reservation. The waitress was really accommodating and showed us to a table on the basis we had to leave by a certain time which wasn't a problem. I had the crab and prawn pasta bake and my partner had the crispy Chinese duck pizza which we really enjoyed. There was a relaxed... More

I took my wife and young daughters here twice for lunch during a holiday in Halloween week. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. The staff were fantastic even offering to take a photo for us. A lovely window seat was reserved offering a beautiful view of the harbour. Cannot wait to visit again next year.

Looks a bit manky from outside but inside the decor and welcome are wonderful. Very pleasant staff and obviously genious chef. Hubby had sirloin steak which he said was one of the best. I had salmon from the specials menu. It was so delicious, I almost cried. We will definitely recommend to family and friends and hope to make a... More

Perhaps it’s the name which conjures up mid range pizza and pastas – which are served – or is it the hideous bright white neon that is so out of place in St Ives, but my expectations are low. However, they have many other, much better dishes, such as the fillet of sea-bass with risotto which was just super and... More

Had a really delicious lunch here last week (Nov 14). We have been coming to Caffe Pasta for years, we came here before it was Caffe Pasta (Friendship Restaurant) - years and years ago, totally different then of course. It is even better now. We love this restaurant, always something different on the menu. Great pizzas, superb fish dishes (as... More

As a family we visit Cornwall every year and always visit Caffe Pasta as we really enjoy the food. As the years have passed we have noticed that the service has been in decline. The first year we visited was in 2004 and the service was faultless, we even have a photo of our family with the waitress as she... More

Even though we came to looe for a short break, we had to come back to st. Ives just to visit this restaurant, my daughter had spag Bol which she said was the best ever. We had pizza and a calzone, amazing, and estrella beers to wash it all down. Please don't change anything. We'll be back next year

Actually managed to get a table this visit and it was worth the wait. Best home made, restaurant quality, crispy duck pizza. Delish! Very busy for a Monday out of season and that alone sold it to us!
