Visited on a Monday night. Very pleased to have booked as the small restaurant was packed with a mix of diners. The title cafe gives the wrong impression as this is first class Italian dining fare in terms of pasta (looked and tasted homemade) which I and my mother had (carbonara and penne vegetarian) the pizzas looked superb too (next...

Saw this on Cardiff's top 50 so thought my daughter and I would give it a go. Amazing food, pizza was the best I have had in years and my daughter loved the lasagne. Great properly cooked food. Staff friendly and helpful. Can't wait to return .

Absolutely love it here, although it is very small the staff are so friendly and the food is wonderful. Definitely book in advance as they only have about 10 tables max.

Managed to walk in to the Citta last Friday at 12 noon and was shown a table having twice previously failed to get a place. The staff were pleasant, accommodating and not overbearing. Settling for the daily specials of broccoli,spinach and Italian sausage followed by a Fungi and sausage pizza with a nice bottle of Rose (the only one) it... More

Our party of 4 had the Cafe Citta experience not that long ago. We had heard about the great food and atmosphere from friends and we were not disappointed. Although a small restaurant we did not feel on top of other people, the food, atmosphere and staff were spot on. Authentic Italian food at good prices. Great place for visitors... More

Had to book this little gem at least a month before we visited!! Late reviewing this but better late than never! Perfect food! Yes it is small but you get the homely feel. I vividly remember having the seafood pasta and my partner had a pizza. Both were amazing. For desert I had the tiramisu which was delightful. My partner... More

A lovely little place in the centre of Cardiff, the food is excellent quality and great value for money! Best pizza in town and the staff were lovely. We visited on a Friday night, the restaurant was busy and we booked a few weeks in advance to ensure we got a table! Will be visting again and would definitely recommend!

It's a pretty cosmopolitan place is Cardiff and well worth a visit, but to find this gem in the city centre is real treat. Don't blink 'cos you'll miss it and make sure you book because it is jammed. A wonderful, no frills, just good food place with a sensational atmosphere. Reasonable wine at reasonable prices and great service makes... More

Visit this restaurant twice every year when attending the Speedway at the stadium and book well in advance. We look forward to dining here very much and I'm sure I review every year. I just cant sing its praises enough. Its like dining in someone's front room, very small and intimate and it always astounds me how many people they... More
