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!

We always visit Caffe Pasta when in St Ives, the menu offers something for everyone. All our starters were delicious (deep fried brie - could have been a bit runnier, squid, prawns) & the mains too. Two of us had the sea bass special, on mussel & leek risotto. Yum! Though interesting to see a recent reviewer had TWO fillets,... More

Popped in during a recent visit to St Ives. We had no booking, but as we were just after 12 finding a table for 2 wasn't a problem. The window tables were either occupied or reserved, so if that's important to you I'd recommend booking ahead. Service was quick, waitresses were efficient...warmed up and became more friendly as lunch went... More

Just popped in for lunch escaping St Ives in the rain, quick and friendly service, and a perfect bass fillet (two actually) sitting on a bed of mussel, saffron and leek risotto - Wow! what a taste combination, fabulous! The squid starter was excellent too but the bass ... mmmm! And then they kindly organised for the sun to come... More
