Have visited on a couple of occasions and thoroughly enjoyed both our visits. The pizza, pasta and puddings are brilliant and very traditional. The service has been personable and with a smile! More of an informal café than a formal restaurant typical of many countries in Europe. Prices are very reasonable for the quality of food. Can't wait for our... More

visited last night on the spur of the moment. Delisious Lasange, pasta that my non pasta loving husband would not stop ravind about all night. Nice staff, friendly chef who takes the tie to come out and ask you how you like your food. And very reasonably priced less than £40 for two mains one side and a bottle of... More

Nice place, I live close so will sometimes pop in for a coffee before heading into town in the morning. Always a polite, friendly service and I've never had to wait very long. I've only ever had takeaways so couldn't comment on the sit-in side of things but it's a nice wee place.

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Staff friendly and the chef explained the menu to us. Would definitely return. I agree with another reviewer, however, in that the ambience in the evening is not the best.

Popped in for Saturday lunch with my wife who had been before. Had the tuna and anchovy pizza and Sylwia the pasta special. Pizza was probably one of the best I've had in a long time. Dough was perfect and lots of cheese, tuna and anchovy. Wonderful. Sylwia's pasta was also the best she's had for a while but massive... More

Fantastic food and service, great to see the Sicilian chef in the restaurant chatting to customers and giving advice. Good range of options and they will amend if you like too. Only criticism is the actual look of the restaurant. It doubles as a cafe during the day and (obviously!) it also looks like one. I just wonder if there's... More

A very warm welcome on a very wet and cold night. Chef friendly and informative. The food was good and served by lovely waitresses. Not a great wine list ,two white and two red, but was ok .If there was any complaint,there was a lack of ambience for evening dining. Perhaps more subdued lighting would help.Having said that would definitely... More

I went to Cafè Sicilia last saturday. I really wanted to taste a real Italian food. We ordered either pasta or pizza and everything was good, fresh, well cooked and tasty. Even the desserts are great and there is a great variety: cannoli, cakes, pies, cheesecakes. The price was also very good, since each of us (we were 4 people)... More
