Just experienced a lovely lunch with friends here. We decided to book ahead and it met all our expectations following previous comments by other TripAdvisor positive reviews. It serves up traditional Italian food cooked to perfection, the service is very friendly. The choice from the standard menu and daily specials again cannot be faulted. We had a bottle of white...

Recommended we go here for my mothers 60th birthday after all the good reviews and walking past here to work every day. Nice little place, not overly complicated menu, decent prices, top quality authentic food and even got a free shot of limoncello for my mother as it was her birthday! Great how a lot of drinks/glasses are kept cold... More

We had an amazing meal. A simple magharita pizza and caprese salad. Quite honestly the best of both that I have ever had. The restaurant is extremely small so it is best if you make a reservation at supper. We got lucky. If you are looking for a posh, swanky restaurant this is not it. If you want great Italian... More

A relaxed family vibe as soon as you walk in as we were seated at our cosy table. No refineries but everything you needed. But the food is the star here. The garlic prawn starter was delicious with plenty of bread to soak up the garlic juices and vegetables. My brother and sister in law went for pizzas for main... More

The food at Cafe Citta was delicious. Staff were friendly, and there was a great selection of food to choose from. Restaurant is very small, but I'd definitely recommend a visit - book a table before hand though.

The best, most authentic Italian restaurant I've ever been to. Service was spot on and the food was so delicious. I had a pizza with potatoes and rosemary, girlfriend had bolonaise. Both wonderfully cooked. I look forward to returning for the carbonara next time

Very glad we visited this restaurant, nothing pretentious or flashy ,no gimmicks but a real homely and sociable feel. The staff are polite and helpful and the food was really good, in fact it surpassed my expectations which were already quite high after reading tripadvisor. It had a few quirks, you went outside to go up a stairs to the... More
