We visited Café Italia after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. Glad we went. Food was good and the singing wait staff was awesome!

Good Italian food, good ambiance and plenty of tennis ephemera if you follow the game. Great entertainment by the singing waiters who are very good and happy for you to sing along. They were slow serving me my wine and gave me a huge glass when they realised. Highly recommendable!

Great casual Italian café with waiters that sing. Good food and music, can't be beat. It is a must stop in the desert.

Nice little Italian restaurant, outside dining is pleasant if later, Ralph grocery store next door so if eating outside probably better after 8p. Menu was typical Italian with pasta dishes, veals, appetizers. The food was well prepared and good portion. They have live singers so nice dinner atmosphere. Pasta was al Dante and sauces fresh tasting. Veal was perfect with... More

We were a group of 18 that had a reservation. The restaurant apparently misplaced it (found later) so we had a 20 minute wait while they arranged tables. The food was good basic Italian. My vegetables were cold and the pasta luke warm on arrival. The cachet for the restaurant is waiters who sing while patrons dine. It is interesting... More

We went out as a group to this restaurant and had a wonderful, fun evening! The servers, who are also the singers, were awesome, talented, and we loved every one of their performances! Most of our meals were great; but a couple of suggestions to the restaurant: the sides, overal,l were a bit bland. My daughter had alfredo sauce on... More

We love the service, the food and the singing! It's a happy place to be! My favorite is chicken pollo. Their sand dabs are yummy but pricey.

My friends and I had dinner here last night. 2 of us had Italian dishes which were good. 1 of us had risotto, which was tasteless, in fact they took it off the bill. 1 of us had a veal dish which was also not good, in fact it was served room temp! The place is very nice inside and... More

Thirteen of us ate here and we were all happy with our meals and the singing. We were there early enough for the specials. Great value. Others had the shrimp, and the salmon. Both tasty choices.

I would give Cafe Italia 3.5 stars if possible. My wife and I went here on a recent Saturday night with no reservations. The place was pretty full, but they seated us within 5 minutes. We walked from a nearby hotel, however the location in a strip mall provides plenty of parking for those who drive here. The restaurant is... More
