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

Of course then a dessert again we all had a... More

Stopped by on a lovely sunny day so sat outside with the dog, and had two very acceptable pizzas, especially the duck and hoisin sauce pizza which had loads of lovely duck on it. Accompanied by a nice glass of Merlot and a beer, and then two very good coffees. service was good, and the view over the harbour made... More

This is a must visit for diners who enjoy seafood at it's best, with tables inside and out right on the quay/wharf, it was our 40th wedding anniversary, whereby we had a great meal, the restaurant is about 10 feet from the quay with panoramic views of the harbour and fishing boats, what a lovely way to spend a romantic...

My boyfriend picked this place as we were wondering around late night deciding what we fancied to eat. The place always looks busy. We managed to get seated and each picked just a main. I had the prawn and crab bake. It was delicious! The other half enjoyed his meal too. Not too pricey and would try again.

I had to go inside to order myself having waited 10-15 minutes already and expecting it to be busy inside only... More

We always try to fit in at least one visit to Caffe Pasta while on one of our biannual short trips to St Ives so it has come as something of a blow that, on our latest visit last week, we came away rather disappointed. Starters and desserts were well up to the usual standard but our main courses were... More
