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.

Great staff and service but the chicken picatta lacked much lemon seasoning and the chicken was not tender. From the reviews, I expected much better. Will probably give it one more try but there are so many great places to eat in Santa Fe I'll try others out first.

My visit here for mothers day was hopefully just a bad day for them. The service was extremely slow in all aspects. The food was bland with overcooked tough chicken and dried out luke warm pizza. Doubt I will be back with many other consistent choices for Italian in town

We had a light supper that was delicious, made with fresh ingredients. We didn't have room for the desserts (unfortunately) that the restaurant is apparently known for, but maybe next time. Service was very good, prices reasonable.

While traveling with friends we ate dinner at Cafe Cafe in Santa Fe. We ordered a large meat pizza, and also had the bruschetta. I enjoyed both, and thought they were good. We also shared the home made Spumoni ice cream, which was wonderful! Our waitress was Leticia, and she was great! Try to get her as your waitress, you... More

We took a chance without a reservation on Valentine's night and were welcomed in at Café Café. They had a live band. Tables were decorated appropriately for Valentine's Day. The place was packed. There was a great happy energy in the restaurant, everyone seemed to be having a good time. Our waitress was SUPER friendly. We went with their special.... More
