Italian -- But a Bit Different

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.

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

Our family has been dining at Market City Caffe for 20 years. The food is delicious, authentic Italian, the breadsticks are amazing, the outdoor patio is lovely and the service is great. This popular restaurant is located in a charming and hip area of Burbank. Due to the popularity of this area, street parking is a problem, but there are... More

This restaurant is in a good location for shopping or hanging out in Burbank. I had the 3 cheese pizza with grilled artichoke appetizer. The pizza was prepared perfectly. The artichoke was so-so but good. The bar had really good drinks. They also offer an anti pasta bar which looked to be stocked with fresh ingredients I would definitely go... More

We went to lunch on Friday Feb.13 at 12:30, the lunch crowd was winding down and we sat on the patio to enjoy the beautiful weather. Our server seemed overwhelmed even though it wasn't that busy, it almost looked like it was her first day on the job. There were very long periods between interaction with her and that made... More

Good food, mostly Italian with great breadsticks served as soon as you sit down! The outdoor patio has umbrellas and heaters and is great for people watching. Nice and relaxing for lunch.

No biggie, our 1st time & we got lost coming from OC. The hostess was very apologetic for our wait & gracious, always checking in, keeping us updated on a... More

Giant personal pizzas, great dough tasty sauce and interesting toppings. Delicious pesto salmon on a bed of super squishy spinach and tons of roasted potatoes. Wonderful mussels at anti pasta bar. But oh my, our waitress. Clueless and swung back and forth between annoyingly attentive and MIA. Forgot something about my meal, forgot to bring more bread. When crabby pony... More

Our table shared pizzas, bruschetta, crème brulee, shrimp appetizers, caprese, and, of course, wine. The food and service were excellent. The ambiance was lovely.

I had lunch here with a business associate during a trip in November and it was very nice. The service was very good. I had a salad with grilled salmon on top- it was excellent. We sat outside [see picture] and it was just very pleasant. I recommend it.
