The good was beautiful and service was attentive and swift. The staff were so kind to the children and were overall very friendly. I would not hesitate to go back or recommend this resturant. Ideal for just a quick lunch, or a celebration.

Delivery on time, if not earlier than expected Food still hot Delicious food - best Italian I’ve had by far and we usually travel from Bolton to Oldham for our favourite Italian ! I would recommend to anyone who is wanting an easy Friday night...in but still trying to pretend you are out at a restaurant !More

It must be very difficult to delivery piping hot food when delivering as well as maintaining the quality, however, had a delivery on Saturday 16th and every box was ticked. On time, hot and quality - thoroughly enjoyed by us all - Thanks

One of the best restaurants in Bolton. The staff are so friendly and the food is amazing. They also catered for our wedding last minute, due to ever changing restrictions. We all love this place and would highly recommend

I had a voucher for afternoon tea that I’ve been struggling to use due to COVID and shielding. I decided to use it for a takeaway. We had it today and it was lovely. It’s very different to the traditional version and that makes it...special. It’s one sandwich using flatbread and your choice of filling. There’s a mini pizza and a small bruschetta. The sweet consists of a cherry scone with jam, a profiterole and a small cake. I was even offered coffee to take out. I will certainly be having afternoon tea from here again.More

Do come here quite a lot since new owners took over a few years ago but did not recognise any to the Staff there today so very impressed at the welcome I received. Being a retired, disabled, Widow, eating alone can be quite an ordeal....Having been isolated for months I decided to go and have a meal here to cheer myself up. Felt very safe here, constant sanitising going on and masks worn by all the Staff. One of the pleasures of going to an Italian eatery like this with great food and caring Staff is the really unnecessary use of the pepper grinder by the handsome young Staff (I always think that Chefs are the best choice when it comes to seasoning). Well, thanks Boris, it seems you have banned that too. I did complain and the Staff humorously said they could do what they could with an empty one!!! Food was excellent and it was a great experience. Thanks. I had the Cod Pizzaiola. Cooked to perfection. Sally, Retired Home Economist.More

I had the veal at this cafe after a dental appointment. It was really nice but even when it was covered in peppercorn sauce and ground up black pepper. It was still a bit dry. But i would still recommend this restaurant because it had...great service and the staff were polite. I had tiramisu for dessert but it wont let me add more than 1 photo. 10/10More

Just before lockdown last weekend we had yet another great meal with fabulous service. I have read another review condemning the Covid 19 policies and that certainly wasn’t our experience. Yes there were kids in there but it’s a family restaurant, that’s what happens, they...weren’t badly behaved and certainly not worthy of the vicious review the anonymous!!!!! Person left. The waiters and waitresses were just as attentive and friendly as normal the food was fabulous This restaurant has just gone through the toughest 3 months any business will probably ever go through and to leave a review as vicious and vindictively as this as well as leaving the review anonymously is nothing short of cowardly. What sort of person are you! Keep going Café Italia we love your food and your customer attention. Stay safe we will be back as soon as we are allowed to do so. Great little Gem keep on truckin’More

If you are looking for a nice family meal out and don’t want to worry about covid then this is not the place for you. Screaming kids running around the place and waiters going from table to table hugging and touching different clients. It’s a...shame as I used to love going here, the food is great but they do not care about anyone’s safety, more that their own family members enjoy themselves. This is said on the basis that the last two times I have been, family members of the owners have been in and have been allowed to run riot.More
