Compliments to the chef!

Wow, this food was unique and delicious! Unsure why it was empty when we were there; but we enjoyed the food! Ambiance is beautiful and bathroom was super clean.

Pizza here is really good. Even my wife's on gluten free crust was excellent. Waitress seemed distracted. Not bad just a little on the lazy side. We would have ordered more such as drinks or desert is she had asked.

Traveling back through Billings from Yellowstone we stopped in the historic downtown area and walked around. We decided to eat here based on other good reviews and the look of the place once we were standing in front of it. The restaurant has a great look and feel to it. The sort of place you might expect to have the... More

I don't usually eat pasta but decided to be adventurous. I had the butternut squash stuffed ravioli with blue cheese sauce and candied walnuts and 3 weeks later, I cannot stop thinking about it. I have never had this experience in a restaurant before. Every mouthful was a bite of heaven. I wanted to hug the chef but had to... More

Food was tasteless, the server was great though. Didn't know is was possible to make Italian food with so little flavor.

I was attracted to Cafe Italia by the warm glow of its neon sign on Montana Avenue--right in the heart of Billings' historic district and wasn't disappointed. Everything was as it presented itself to be. But the nicest surprise of all were the gluten free options for both pizza and pasta. It was a few dollars more, but just having... More

We were the early birds on a Saturday. Being new to Billings our waitress spent a great deal of time sharing with our family all the activities Billings has to offer. Much appreciated! For the food my wife ordered a sangria that was house made and delicious. My kids ordered fettuccine Alfredo that was made from scratch with a great... More
