There are always lots of great specials but we have our select favorites and rarely deviate. Love that it is BYOB too!! Chicken carcioffo is excellent. Veal picatta is first class.

Cafe Italian has been my go to restaurant for Italian for many years. The food is always great, I love their house tomato salad dressing for starters. Then, anything from spaghetti and meatballs to seafood linguine to great steak dishes, everything is wonderful. And a big plus is BYOB!

My family and I celebrated my birthday at this restaurant and the experience was one of the best we've had at any restaurant. The food was amazing, close to the best lasagna we've ever had! We brought our own wine, which they uncorked for us right away. They also surprised us with a free piece of cheesecake with a candle... More

The entire staff is incredibly friendly, food is very reasonably priced, and environment is great. I would highly recommend a visit to Cafe Italian if you are ever... More

Wife made a reservation for 6 of us on Mothers Day; prior to arriving, never heard of this place/actually less than enthustiac about going there. Wow, was I wrong, Ambience was out of this world, romantic, charming and spohisticated. Although it was packed, assumed that it was just because it was Mother's Day! After a reasonable wait, we were seated.... More

Was good not great, but better than many Italian restaurants who's chicken is tasteless. My wife had the Eggplant Parmesan, again good but not great. Eggplant did not have much flavor. Sauce is decent, bit sweet for my... More

Been going here for years! Great food, great service, family owned! 1/2 mile from Main St on NW Highway. Love chicken Arrabiata and Chicken Carciofo. Tortellini soup is excellent.

Don't let the location of this place stop you from enjoying some of the best Italian food in the country. The food is really fantastic, with suprising variety, delivered with service to match the qualitity of the food. Very friendly and sincere in their appreciation of your business. Cafe Italia is BYOB but they do not have a corkage fee.

Good Italian fare. The place is always crowded on the weekends. This is a BYOB restaurant bad there is no corkage fee. That seems to be lots of the attraction. The food is good and the service is fast and friendly. Not pretentious . Lots of pasta and good veal dishes. Inexpensive
