Wonderful Cafe Away from the Plaza and Tourists

We were enjoying 'spirits' at Santa Fe Spirits and a table next to us offered us slices of their pizza from Cafe Cafe. It was so good that we decided to order our own large meat lovers. The sauce and crust were excellent! We would highly recommend! Enjoy!

Three years living in Italy makes us tough critics of Italian dining, but Cafe Cafe exceeded our expectations in every way! Ambiance is good with open dining room in trattoria style, and light jazz background music is perfect. Wine list is short, but offers excellent imported and domestic choices for every palate. Wait staff made excellent recommendations that were perfect... More

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.

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.
