An Italian Treasure

Menu is true Italian with a touch of New Mexico; service is exceptional; atmosphere is for family and friends. Definitely a place to return to often.

The food and service were good, but I didn't walk out raving about my experience. As a previous reviewer mentioned, there are so many great restaurants in town, it's hard work to really stand out. I would label this place as one that I would go to on occasion for a good meal. I had their vegetarian lasagna. It was... More

This restaurant would probably get a better review if it were anywhere else. But Santa Fe has so many great places to eat that I can only say "not bad" for Cafe Cafe. They have outdoor seating and live music at times, and the food is pretty good. Service is not bad, but nothing particularly special. Price is, again, "not... More

Really enjoyed our dinner at this restaurant that was not crazy with tourists (even though we are). The small size, with acoustic music, and excellent service and food made for a very enjoyable night. Salmon delicious. Must try the risotto cake. Cannelloni also excellent. Small but nice wine list with mostly Italian wines.

Cafe Cafe was only 2 blocks from our accommodations at the Pueblo Bonito B&B Inn - a short walk on a pleasant evening. They serve pizza and Italian cuisine. We ate outside on the patio and the food was delicious and service was impeccable. We had pizza, salads and a glass of wine. Simply lovely dinner! We were at dinner... More

After finding several restaurants full, we tried this restaurant on the recommendation of a security guard at one and were delighted. A very nice menu with a decent wine list. Calamari appetizer was excellent and both entrees were quite good. Service was prompt and server very pleasant. Atmosphere and value good. Will return.

Reviewed Café Café last year, and returned to find it still a delightful, informal place populated by local folks. Had salads and pizza, which were both appetizing in appearance and delicious in taste. Portions are generous, and service (Leticia) was attentive but not intrusive. We will return!

Wow. There's great pizza in Santa Fe ! Not NY pizza, but close ! Good service, decent salad and tasty pizza made for a delightful meal. Outstanding Latin Jazz trio playing, but the once the dining room filled up, almost impossible to hear the band.
