I don't like to give a bad review however I felt a bit let down here. The food was ok average I suppose, but the service was terrible. Waited 15 minutes before someone actually took our order which was the food and drinks together. Bad practice. When the food arrived no one came to ask if things were ok. No... More

Having worked in the industry for a while (yes it's one of those people reviewing again) I can't help but Mark this place down on the service. 2 people on the front while the place was full (9pm) is insufficient. Not only that the fact we were asked for our food and drink order at the same time after being... More

We dined at Cafe Pasta and had a lovely evening. The cafe is brilliantly situated on the wharf at St Ives overlooking the harbour. It has a bright, relaxed ambiance and the staff are friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed a selection of dishes from crab linguine, to smoked haddock tagliatelle and crispy duck pizza; all our dishes were lovely. Great... More

We dined at Cafe Pasta last night and I have to say I couldn't fault it. Food amazing, staff very friendly and a lively place to eat as a family. We will definitely return before the end of our stay. Highly recommend this lovely place.

This is a great place to eat good quality Italian food with a view. As a bit of a self confessed Italophile, I know good Italian cooking when I see it and overall this hits about an 8 out of 10, however the Calzone is a full 10 with one of the best Bolognese fillings I have had outside Italy....

We ordered coffees at the bar and let the waitress know we were sat outside. Waited 10 minutes and had to go in again to ask for the coffees. The response wasn't very polite and it took another 5 minutes before the coffees were ready. They were tiny so you don't get much for your money. But to be fair... More

This restaurant on the wharf in St Ives is a great place to go to get some decent Italian food. Brilliant service. Brilliant views. And the food is pretty good.

We've eaten here a couple of times on separate visits to St Ives over the years. Good food, well presented, served quickly. The restaurant overlooks the harbour and if you want to be sure of a window seat then I advise you to book in advance as the place is very popular, especially in the evenings. I must say I... More
