Whenever we go to Cafe Citta it's always bustling, and 5.30 on a Wednesday was no different! Friendly welcome, great food and wine, our guest was delighted; and then a leisurely stroll to a fantastic concert. A very memorable evening all round.

Outstanding food! With an amazing option to change up the menu to suit vegetarian needs, all of which were reasonably priced. The comfy and romantic atmosphere along with fantastic service makes this one of the best places to eat in Cardiff !
