What a little gem of a restaurant. Really good traditional food and personalized service. Well worth the visit.

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

The most excellent and authentic italian food and meal I ever have had. The glory goes to the lady chef who makes the most exellent home made Italian food. A place every person visiting Cardiff should eat- if you prefere authentic italian food. Amazing

This is a little gem of a place, it is very small with rustic décor and due to the open kitchen which has a pizza oven it is very warm so it is a good idea not to wear warm clothing. Booking is essential. The staff were all really friendly and helpful and the food was gorgeous, the flavours along... More

What a lovely place this is. Staff couldn't do enough for you. Food was served at a reasonable speed and cooked to taste. Well seasoned and well presented. Worth it's place in the ratings!
