I love going here, especially in the summer. Outside dinning is on a lovely patio with fountain. They have a large variety of dishes, mostly Italian, but my favorite is the trout. And you must have a cafe mocha afterwards, it's so big you could go swimming in the cup, served with lots of extras... read more

Ravioli was fine but not outstanding. Sausage plate was very good. Service was a little slow. Breadsticks are the best.

Me and Market City Caffe go way back. I have been coming to Market City Caffe for about 6 years now. When someone comes into town and they are interest in Italian, I always offer them to try this place. Foods good, service is nice, and the breadsticks are better than Olive Garden...so don't get full on the bread because... More

I was there with family on July 4th, so, I get that can be an "off" day. The staff was very friendly, door and waiter, but I think maybe the kitchen might rather have been at a 4th of July Bar-B-Que. It's not like it was terrible, just not memorable in any way. I remember looking down at my tomato... More

Great salads, so don't just limit yourself to pasta dishes and breadsticks. Nice place for a meal before a movie. Been going here for 20 years.

Loved the inside decor of Market City Caffe. Felt like you were in a Tuscany restaurant. The food was amazing and I believe they make their own pasta. The hot bread sticks were awesome. I had the lamb ragout with bow tie noodles, It was rich and delicious. I may have licked the dish. The half order of antipasti salad... More

It's one of the more romantic locations in Burbank Town Center (sit outside on the patio). The food is really good but make sure you check the wine prices before you order. I ended up with a $30 glass of wine that I thought was just a house red. Aside from that, I've eaten here three times this past month.... More

When I lived in Burbank, I ate here a lot. I actually remember when they opened. The food was good then and it’s still good. I love their patio and the hot breadsticks they bring to the table. As always our meals were great as was the service. Inside is quiet if you want a more private setting. The patio... More

Everything about this place was just OFF. My main course arrived burned on the bottom (as if I wouldn't notice when I couldn't cut it or taste it). An $18 entrée was returned and I didn't order it again. I order the specialty offer of fried artichoke hearts. So greasy I couldn't finish them. Even my teenager who enjoys fast... More

Market City Caffe offers an interesting array of Italian-inspired foods -- many not typically found in restaurants (e.g., pumpkin ravioli in a sage cream sauce). The portions are more than adequate and the service was attentive but not intrusive. The patio is lovely in the early evening.
