We've tried for ages to get in to this restaurant, friends have been and they've raved about it. This time we booked a week in advance and managed to get in a 7pm reservation. Often when friends recommend somewhere you want to like it for them. This place was no struggle to love, the food was fresh, well seasoned and... More

To be honest I'm not a great fan of Italian fare but what this boutique restaurant served was exceptional. Cafe Citta can only be described as petite and reserving a table is a must. It appears to be an intimate family run business with all food prepared in the very small visible kitchen. This is not somewhere where meals can... More

Excellent pizza, as good as any I've had in Italy. The service is attentive and professional. I do suggest you book (unlike us - luckily it was a very mild October evening, as we sat outside!) as this place is small. We also had 2 cappuccinos which were very good and a tiramisu which was divine, but the portion size... More

We finally ate at cafe citta today, after many people reccommending it to me. It was lovely. The staff were very friendly and moved some furniture around at peak time to squeeze us in. The food was delicious, fresh, and served with a smile. Great menu and atmosphere. This is now my new favourite Italian in cardiff!

Yes venue is a little compact but the food is amazing, friendly helpful willing to adapt meals to suit your preference, a bit like visiting an old italian friend for a cosy home meal. What not 5 stars because they run out of champagne glasses so we had one drink in a tumbler a bit of a shame, But dont... More

Fantastic authentic Italian. All home cooked, best pizza in South Wales. Definitely worth a visit if you can get in. Very popular, try lunch.

Definitely the best italian restaurant in cardiff! Great pizza/pasta and amazing service. Do book before going there though because space is limited.

If you've read any of my previous reviews then you'll see I babble on.. I won't in this case, just go there, have the Italian sausage, carbonara, pizza, in fact, any of the dishes and thank me later for recommending it.. enjoy!!

A real delight. Yes small and a bit cramped and the couple sitting by the door had their coats on but great atmosphere and good service. Delicious broad bean on bruschetta starter and nice pasta - perfect before Cardiff half. Also top marks for serving my drink of the summer Prosecco and Aperol! Ok not best preparation for a half...
