This is a great place. Realize it is moderately priced Italian fare, not a black-tie stop in uptown Dallas. It has great atmosphere, great Calamari and even Escargot. Desserts are really good (ask them which are homemade). BYOB really saves, and they even uncork it for free! I take clients here as well as a great affordable night out with... More

Although small, the atmosphere is charming. We have eaten here over 20 times and never had a bad meal. This is the place we take out of town guest too.

Great ambience, good service and good portions. Should have ordered the chicken arrabiata instead of the chicken jerusalem (too creamy for my taste).

I've been going to Cafe Italia for years. Regardless of the occasion or the night, it's always a good choice. The food is good, the service is pleasant, and the atmosphere is delightful. I'll continue to patronize this restaurant, even though we're moving to a different area in the Metroplex.

I had their Chicken Arrabiata dish and it was absolutely horrendous. No kick to it. Couldn't even recognize it.

I was with a large group of women last night and we had an outstanding time at Café Italia. They are BYOB which saved all of us a lot of money since this was a celebration and we wanted to enjoy some wine with our meal. Our waiter was terrific and the food was very good. We even were treated... More

Kids ordered ravioli and fettuccine alfredo. Lasagna was great. Veal parmesan was not so good. Soggy and lots of breading little veal. Will come back.

We had a fabulous dinner on Saturday night. I do recommend reservations. We had the rigatoni ala vodka, Caesar salad and Spumoni ice cream. The flavors of the meal were delightful. I can see why it is number 1 on Trip Advisor.

Cafe Italia is a small venue that provides outstanding food. Typically we are there for early diner before it gets really busy. The wait staff we have experienced have been very attentive. We especially like that it does not get to loud. We have even gone with a very large group. Being a BYOB does have its advantages. If you... More

We loved this place! I got the veal picatta and will get it again if I get to come back. My husband got the seafood combo and he loved that, too. I really liked the the house salad dressing made with tomatoes.
