Friendly and good value

This is my go-to place for lunch. They have pasta specials every day, as well as good options on the menu and quick eats in the display case. I prefer to go on Sundays, because the chef is truly Italian and very talented, but the other days are also excellent. Whenever I have lunch there (at least... read more

This is the second time I've had an evening meal in Cafe Sicilia. The food is fabulous, fresh and gloriously homemade (unlike some other nearby eateries). The tiramisu is scrumptious but so is everything - it's so hard to choose! The cafe is open during the day and on Friday and Saturday evenings - kitchen closes at 9. Heartily recommend... More

The welcoming was not particular warm or friendly. Should have really turned back around and left at the point. Food was ok. Very over priced for a cafe and for what you get not worth it. The soup was very salty & north served to accompany the over priced lasagne. Not a very child friendly establishment. The service was not... More

I live on Perth Road so come here regularly. The coffee is always piping hot and the food is really nice. They do daily special pastas and really big homemade pizzas along with sandwiches and different savoury pastries. I recommend this cafe as they make an affort to provide interesting food that is different from others.

Went here for the first time the other day, with my mum. Not a massive selection of drinks and if you go at lunch time, there is a limited menu for pasta (just 3 special pastas) though you can get a pizza and there is a lot of things like pies and sandwiches of various kinds. We both went for... More

I came here for lunch as I am sick of overpriced, so called "Italian" eating experiences. I was not expecting anything other than a clean, comfortable café, and that is what Cafè Sicilian is. The place is popular and I can see why. It provides typical Italian food at a reasonable price. The service is pleasant and efficient. I had... More

Took a chance on this place and was not disappointed. Quite the contrary. This is typical of one of those small lane type restaurants you would get in a place like Rome, all available on the Perth Road in Dundee. This place serves fairly simple food but it is of a high quality, probably the kind of food that an... More

Food was nice. But i dont think i would come back for dinner. It is very casual setting and you are essentially sitting in cafe. Would come back for lunch. The place could really do with a refurb. Think they would get lot more customers if they did the place up.

Ask to see the specials board...you won't be disappointed. Blink and you will miss this place. Cafe Sicilia is excellent, don't be put off by the unpretentious decor, or the sparse looking display cabinets, ask for the menu and you will not be disappointed. Prices are good value, food quality is very good, home cooked and huge portions. I ate... More
