Family run restaurant, large portions & good pizza. If taking starter -SHARE one only or you won't be able to finish small pizza. Staff friendly and efficient.

“Downtown Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Nice restaurant downtown, too cool to take advantage of the outside tables. Nice decor, courteous staff. Good menu and reasonably priced. BYOB with winery store just around the corner.

Food above average but not outstanding, nevertheless an very nice place

“delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

We tried and enjoyed the traditional Italian (but not traditional in this area of south central PA) appetizer of wilted dandelion leaves with a garlicky and spicy seasoned sausage and a robust prosciutto, it was great. The marinara sauce of the zuppe de pesce was delicious and the scampi with shrimp and crab was redolent of lemon and garlic, as it should be. The chef came out to speak with us and he is excited to bring good Italian basic tastes with stepped up flavors to town. I think he will succeed.

“American Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

The atmosphere of Cafe d'Italia is in one word, beautiful and the food leaves nothing to be desired. They offer classic Italian meals with a satisfying modern twist and aesthetically pleasing presentation. Kudos to Dotty and Chef Luke for bringing a wonderful fine dining experience for those of us with skinnier wallets.

“Our favorite Italian!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

We've had the pleasure of being able to sample some of the country's best Italian restaurants = including Frank Sinatra's favorite in Little Italy NYC. Cafe D'Italia combines the absolute best of Cuisine and atmosphere to create the Italian Eatery everyone is talking about! Dotty takes pride in her creations plus makes sure that each guest is treated as a friend. We took our entire crew here last week for a celebration. We tell all of our clients to try this wonderful find - they won't beieve they are in Chambersburg!!!!!
