Tucked away in Church Street, I adore everything about Café Citta and it is always the first place I would opt to eat in Cardiff! Discovered this little gem a few years ago and loved it from the first time I dined there. It has continued to deliver ever since. Firstly, the food is out of this world! Portions are... More

Having been to Cafe Citta roughly 10 times in the past couple of years, I can honestly say that I have never been left disappointed. The food is absolutely amazing (particularly the Pollo Alla Milanese) and very good value for money. The staff are also very friendly and attentive. If you are planning on visiting Cafe Citta then I recommend... More

All my Italian friends go here. Run by real Italians and you see Italians in there all the time. What more can I say? Just try it!

The smallest restaurant with the biggest food. Book early to avoid disappointment, this tiny restaurant has it all, great food, great atmosphere and great staff. Definitely worth a visit.

We didn't have a reservation but hit jackpot Kevin when they found us a quiet little table. I ordered a wood fired pizza which was delicious and cheap as chips! Service was great and the staff were friendly. We will return again... Highly recommend.

Eaten twice here, and the food is just delicious. Staff are friendly and the service is good. Would definitely recommend, but book early, because not many covers.

At first glance, it looks just like any other coffee place in city centre. However, this description couldn't be further from the truth. Cafe Citta is the best Italian restaurant in Cardiff. The food is beautiful, fresh and flavoursome, cooked by Italian chefs; the service is friendly and easy going; the atmosphere is relaxed and prices are very fair. If... More

This is my favourite Italian in Cardiff by a mile. Very reasonably priced and great food! Two hour sittings so no good for a long evening of dining but fine as long as you know in advance. Need to book early as it's always full (tiny restaurant).

Cafe Citta is a gem in the heart of cardiff. Their specials are extremely tasty and well worth a try. Great service from this family run restaurant. We have never had a poor experience here and recommend to anyone looking for an authentic Italian meal without the frills.

Thank Eurostarcymru
