We had a perfect experience at Caffe Italia on July 3 to celebrate our small private wedding with 2 close friends and my daughter. Even though there was a large private party going on nearby, we were still able to talk and have a lovely dinner. We started with fried calamari that was tender and included the heads and rings....

Stopped here for lunch with a friend. We shared a amazing cold seafood salad. Crisp greens in a light dressing with mounds of calamari, fish, shrimp octopus. for a entree I had a very good chicken parmesan. Generous serving of chicken, with a tangy sauce on a bed of penne. Very good meal!

Caffe Italia is a very nice BYOB that offers a great variety of Italian specialties with friendly and accommodating service. Starting with a nice selection of breads, we enjoyed appetizers (sautéed broccoli, mussels marinara) and several pasta dishes, all of which were delicious and attractively plated. Would not hesitate to return.

The Rack of Lamb special is by far the best I've found. you get between 6&7 chops cooked to perfection, served with mashed potatoes and sautéed veggies. Another plus it's BYOB.

Visited this summer with grandchildren. While more of a very nice semi formal dining venue and focused on adults, service staff were accommodative to young children. My favorite, lasagna, is the benchmark I always start with and I was very, very pleased as were the other adults who ordered a variety of other Italian favorites all of which were very... More

Very good food. Didn't go in as we were just coming home from the beach but we called ahead and got take out and it was very good. Place looked nice and clean. Had the Chicken Parm heroes. Good sauce, the chicken was not overcooked (as some places do) and the bread was very good. I'd definitely go back.

I have only eaten here once and did not really think it was particularly outstanding. I felt the tomato sauce was very mediocre. The staff was very friendly and helpful but our food was not outstanding and there are many more Italian restaurants in our area that I prefer.

We have been eating our dinners here for years. We enjoy the personal contact we receive from Donato. Food is great, prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is makes you feel at home. We will be dinning here again soon.
