The most beautiful itis loan ive ever been to

Absolutely and completely beautiful! Run by a lovely and friendly Italian family with very few vacancies unless booked in advanced, the food was amazing and th service and atmosphere even better. You'd be a fool to miss such an opportunity, Ciarrai and Joe X

I only stayed in Cardiff for the one night on Tuesday 24th February and was fortunate enough the Holiday Inn is a short walk from Café Citta. This small but warm and inviting restaurant makes you feel relaxed as soon as you sit down. The service and ambiance was superb. Quite simply, some of the best food I have ever... More

Came over from Bristol for a close friends birthday dinner and she definitely picked a fantastic restaurant! There were 10 of us in total and the service as soon as we walked in was really welcoming and friendly. They are very accommodating and we were informed straight away that all the food was made fresh to order and that there... More

A very cosy well run restaurant with an authentic Italian cooking experience. Fantastic to take a date. The atmosphere is just as good as the food. The Affogato was one of the best I'd ever had.

We went one Saturday night with friends. The atmosphere is buzzing and all of the staff are lovely. The prawns to start were sensational and I had an amazing provolone pizza to rival anything I've had in Italy. It was unfortunately was knocked on the floor in the kitchen but they quickly made me another and made light of it... More

Didn't know this place existed until a friend took me for dinner, it's tucked away like a little gem! We left London 8 years ago to move to Cardiff and found a decent Chinese, Indian and Thai restaurant very quickly, but not Italian. Until yesterday that is. Do not be put off by the mis match of furniture or the... More

I went here after seeing the rave reviews. I personally hate 'chain' restaurants (e.g pizza express, zizzi, nandos etc) as there's no love in the food, the ingredients are poor quality and the menus very bland. I search for individual, privately owned places which make a profit based on the quality of their food. Well, this place didn't disappoint. It's... More

Love this place. Second time there last night and again I have a new favourite dish. Staff and friendly and helpful, making suggestions and inventing new dishes for the more indecisive members of the party. Food is fresh and simple and very tasty. Definitely recommended!

This is my first visit at the restaurant. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was fantastic, one of the best pizzas I have had, will return again. I left full and happy.
