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.

We usually order a pizza with mushrooms and sausage when we eat at Cafe Cafe; however, last weekend my husband had the chicken parmesan and I had the salmon special....both were generous portions and very good. We had enough to take home for leftovers! Oops, forgot to mention, we also had the toasted meat ravioli for a shared appetizer that... More

Excellent Service, good ambiance and décor. Food was very good - Caesar salad, one with salmon, Ultimate Caprese, and the Veal & Spinach Canneloni; but, the best of all was the Spumoni for dessert - beyond delicious. A return visit definitely in the cards.

We arrived on Sunday night at 6:00 and things seemed OK. But then they got a little busy and the waitress went missing. She'd taken our forks with the eaten salads and then brought entrees but no silverware. She did bring food to other tables while we were waiting for new forks and had to ask to get them (and... More

the service was lovely, the pizza delicious, and the happy surprise was a trio of musicians playing a sort of latin jazz type music. Would definitely go back. (ps: I'm originally from NY, so I know some things about pizza)

My husband and I dined at Cafe Cafe in a Saturday night. It was next door to our hotel, and we were looking for something easy and relaxing. Right away, the owner met us at the door and greeted us like old friends. We were ushered to a nice table and were pleased to find soft live music wafting through... More

A beautifully understated restaurant with relaxing music and good Italian food. You walk in feel graciously met and start to relax. After, you relax comes the fun. Not great food but nicely done and such a nice experience. My favorite restaurant in Santa Fe for a relaxed evening.
