Love finding somewhere that from the outside doesn't look too promising but once inside realising it's a little gem. Had a great meal with 4 friends and food fantastic and value for money and servers friendly. Had the risotto balls for starters followed by spicy pasta and both amazing

Popped in for a quick lunch and was welcomed warmly. Shown to my table and offered a drink. I opted for the risotto which was creamy and really tasty. The coffee was hot and top quality

Love it and I am Italian! Even though the owner is not Italian the food is very good and worth to try. The pizza is very good as the arancini and bruschetta. Will come back

Some very tempting savoury and sweet treats, a little bit different from lots of Scottish cafes. Relaxed and friendly

We've been here before a few times, and will no doubt be back again. The decor is rather basic - cheap and cheerful, to be honest - but the food is tasty and the staff welcoming. We all had pasta, with an interesting variety of fillings. The sweets were delicious and well worth it - the apple pie and ice... More

Sicilia is by far my favorite cafe in Dundee, and every time I've been there (around 10 times in total) the food and coffee were sublime! All food is prepared freshly in the cafe, and the value is great for the quality of food. I would definitely recommend all the savory pastries. From the sweet ones I tried only the... More
