This might be the best Italian restaurant I have been to in the US. This reminded me of being in Italy. Sauces were light and very tasty. The staff was fabulous. We will go back to this restaurant the next time we are in Grapevine. The BYOB was also fabulous. We took a great bottle of wine and paid 1/3... More

First time I came to this place my wife and I were new to the whole BYOB experience and this place definately broke the seal on being shy about BYOB. So many of the other customers embraced the notion with various odds and ends that bring the bottles etc. The wait staff also made us very comfortable by gladly opening... More

We went on Saturday night - the place was packed and was the noisiest restaurant I've ever eaten in. We even had them switch our table from the small back room where we were next to a table of 20-somethings, with a table full of wine bottles, who were yelling at each other across the table. We went into the... More

My family and I have been happy customers of Cafe Italia for close to 10 years. The food is excellent, as is the service. Being from New York City, we are picky about our Italizn food. Nick and his staff never disappoint! Some of our favorite dishes include chicken parmigiana, salmon oreganato, and chicken cacciatore. They are very accommodating, and... More

I grew up in London with Italian friends and some of the best Italian food at my fingertips but since moving to Texas, I have been so disappointed with the quality of Italian food here. Every time we follow a friends' recommendation, or even great website reviews, my husband and I have been repeatedly let down. I had given up... More

We were incredibly amazed with all of the food that came out of this 'strip mall' restaurant! Once inside you will be pleased with the very clean, relaxing and tasteful atmosphere. The owners were on site to meet and greet patrons. Our server was very professional and helpful. You can BYOB and they happily open and pour. Be careful not... More

I am Italian and usually shy away from Italian restaurants because it takes a lot to impress me. This restaurant is WONDERFUL. The regular menu is very reasonably priced and the food is great. It is a BYOB which makes it a very reasonable, but nice dinner out. We have introduced many friends to this restaurant and they have all... More

This place is deceptive. From the outside, it looks pretty unimpressive. Once inside, its has an authentic italian atmosphere. We loved everything about our experience! We didn't realize it was BYOB, but the waiter graciously offered us some wine that they happened to have on hand. The food was so tasty! One from our group has dietary issues, and was... More

Came on a very busy night (Grapefest Weekend), but the wait was worth it. Very friendly, professional, and knowledgeable service from Peyton and a wonderful atmosphere buzzing with great conversation. The food was impeccable and I can't wait to come back again.
