This restaurant was recommended to us by casual friends, and we can't thank them enough. We took advantage of the early bird special, but got first class meals and service. The added value that really made this restaurant stand out was the ability of many, and perhaps all, of the servers to interrupt their duties to break into song throughout... More

If you love Italian food and great entertainment, you will love Cafe Italia. Food is superb, service is excellent, and wait until you hear the servers sing. We will go back here every trip.

Good food, good value, good entertainment, though could improve on the ambiance. If you want a unique dining experience for an affordable price, this is a very good choice. I had the shrimp scampi and it was delicious!

Our waitress was a sweet girl with a beautiful smile. We ordered some wine and after our waitress brought it the hostess began to sing! We took... More

The service was awesome, the hostess and waitress were SUPER friendly. Cute environment. Awesome singing. But the food was aweful! Especially for the price. The bread they served us was regular old white bread that she said the "chef just took out of the oven"...it tasted like wonder bread. My husband and I shared calamari and manicotti. We asked if...

After a day at an exhibition four of us went to this restaurant which was just what the doctor ordered. The food was not rushed and we all agreed it was delicious. After greeting us at the door and taking us to a table our server then broke into "O mio babbino caro", and we were all stunned by the... More

The waiters and waitresses sing everything from opera to show tunes to popular songs. Every one has a beautiful voice. To top it off, the food is excellent. Our group ranged in age from 13 yo (my daughter joined us with clients) to 66 yo and all of us enjoyed both the food and the entertainment. I've been there before,... More

We visited this restaurant about a year ago and decided to go back since we had such a wonderful time. I think it got better! The food is great and the singing that the staff performs is fantastic, If you go here you will have an experience that you will remember for a long time. When you leave you will... More
