Second visit to Cafe Italia, two years apart!! Both meals where fantastic. Lots of staff on hand to make sure you have a good meal. Food is excellent at a really good price. See you again soon. Hopefully before two years this time.

We arrived for an early evening meal and were quite simply treated to the best Italian food we have had in a long while. Would recommend this place to anyone. Very good and efficient service too.
