Small pizza bar - just perfect. Why go to the chain places when you can go to places like this? I'll be back

We had a really enjoyable meal at Café Citta, particularly notable, the high quality of the ingredients in the food, simple starter of mozzarella and tomatoes dressed with olive oil and herbs was delicious, the other starters looked delicious as well. 3 of us had been to Italy and were very familiar with delicious pizzas (of all description), Café Citta's...

Omg, if you love Italian food, this really is the place to go. It is a very small family run restaurant with the most exquisite Italian cuisine. I go there frequently with large groups for birthdays etc and we always have an amazing time and the food is fantastic always. I particularly like the atmosphere. It is a small and... More

Fancied an italian meal, so looked up some options and decided to have a wander around town. We happened to stop by cafe citta without realising that it was one of our potentially planned options for the evening, but it was the amazing smell that captured us! It's a small restaurant, but thr space is used carefully to allow maximum... More

There's a heck of a lot of lousy Italian food to be had in Cardiff. Fortunately Cafe Citta excels with its clean flavours, seasonal specials and friendly family welcome. The cosy interior is just like an authentic trattoria and the food easily matches the atmosphere. We loved the creamy polenta starter, a broad bean bruschetta, and slow-cooked beef ragu. Perhaps...

It's really one of the best restaurants in Cardiff. It's quite small, but service and food are really good.

We went to Cafe Citta on a Friday night hoping to squeeze in a bite to eat before we headed to the theatre. We turned up without a booking at 6pm and was offered a table inside, or a table outside. We chose the outside table due to the weather and was quickly presented with the menu and had our... More

Following my second visit, I can confirm that Cafe Citta is my favourite place to dine in Cardiff. It's tiny and charming and buzzing. The owners are just divine - funny, friendly and efficient. There is a perfect amount of choice on the menu as well as some very tempting specials and the food is out of this world. The... More
