Stopped in greater Buffalo, NY while traveling west. Looking for a quick place to eat, we were directed to a restaurant in a shopping mall on Transit Rd. However, after checking at the recommended restaurant (crowded and noisy with the after-work crowd), we noticed a small "espresso cafe" next door with several tables both inside and out. We were pleasantly... More

Tucked away in a corner of an active shopping area / plaza, this restaurant offers a reasonable Italian food menu at reasonable prices. The quality and quantity was very good. The service very attentive.

It wasn't until a friend took me there that I realized there's a restaurant there. It's in a little strip mall, just a very unpresuming door, and with a name like Caffe Espresso, I expected a coffee bar - nothing more. Nothing could have susprised me more than to see a restaurant and bar in there. And then there was... More

This place has become a favorite of mine for cocktails with the girls. The atmosphere is upscale and sophisticated; unexpected in a strip mall! The menu is Italian bistro food with a twist. I've had most of the entrees at one time or another and have never been disappointed; from the Chicken Pesto Salad to the Lobster Ravioli. The food... More

Good food, small narrow industrial style eatery with exposed duct work. Waitress pleasant . Very good selections however some menu items a tad pricey. Great pasta dishes and when available try the risotto. Sometimes homemade gelato and fresh filled cannoli's. The cook/owner will come to your table to see if everything is to your liking. They aim to please. Bar... More

I went to Caffe Espresso last night with my boyfriend. Upon our initial arrival, I was immediately impressed. I could tell right away that this was definitely my type of place. The ambiance was not something I would expect for a strip plaza restaurant. It was something I would expect to find in the city...trendy, modern, and contemporary. I love... More

Had tuna entree, wife had lobster ravioli. Mussel appetizer. The food was prepared and cooked wonderfully. Clearly the chef is top notch. Service was also very good. My only issue is that the prices make it so it is a special occasion only kind of place, not a lets go there on a random weeknight kind of place. Still recommend... More

This was our first visit to Caffe Espresso. We enjoyed the cafe atmosphere and the food was excellent. We had the soup du jour and panini. Lunch selections include a variety of panini, salads and pasta dishes.

Love this place, great food, great desserts, service so-so. Favorite place to go with my girlfriends when we finally get together for dinner. Nice outdoor seating when the weather cooperates.

We came here after buying a Seize the Deal coupon. Nice, small, quaint place located next to another good bar/restaurant - Brennan's. We were greeted and seated quickly. The lunch menu was quite complete. We opted for the bruschetta as an appetizer and we each had a salad with chicken. The presentation, taste, and freshness of the bruschetta was a... More
