I have been here a few times now. It is one of my mother's favorite bars, as the bartenders know how to make a serious Bourbon Old-fashioned! (Well before they became "in") I have sampled most of the appetizers they offer, munched on a few main courses, and enjoyed dessert as well. Sitting at the bar is a different atmosphere... More

We ate here on two occasions because they offer gluten-free pasta, which is sometimes hard to find. We had four different pastas and several salads (including the caprese). Everything we tried was very, very good. The service was excellent and the surroundings pleasant. We would definitely return.

I was sent to Café Italia by a friend. It was great. I had mussels to start then Egg Plant Meladonna as my main course. The sauce was rich and very tasty. Most of all the owner was so friendly. It was a Friday night and the place was hopping. Love it there.

We went with a group of 7 to Caffe and everyone had a great meal, and a great time! Service was excellent, fast and friendly. Will most definitely return for another great meal next time we visit Marblehead!

A popular Italian eatery in Marblehead with good value. Food is good, and dining room is pleasant. Bar scene is active, but not too noisy, and tables are in bar as well.

The bar scene is the liveliest for adults in town. You see many familiar faces and there is a reason for that. John, the head man behind the bar, is a purveyor of creative cocktails, a resource for directing one to order what is appealing to one's taste AND the master of ceremonies. He is the frosting on the cake... More

Visiting a family member in Marblehead this week we had dinner at the Caffe, our second time there. (We also dined here last year.) We were not disappointed. Our host was very friendly, introducing himself and shaking our hands. We were seated in the bar area, and next to parents and children, when we mentioned wanting something more quiet. He... More

Just another American-Italian joint with store-bought ingredients... There's nothing authentic about the food here. If you're craving Italian go to Bella Verona or Firenze in Salem.
