“Good food and friendly”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Enjoyed a very nice breakfast in this small and quaint spot. The owners, recently arrived from Italy, were delightful and want to please you. The menu is short, but excellent food and great coffee. A nice spot for a good start to your travel day.

“Great food Quick Stop”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Finally, you don't have to drive through Kamloops at lunchtime because it appears there's no where to eat but chain fast food. Cafe Arianna was a treat: it's small & casual, family run. The service was quick, the food delicious, and inexpensive as well. We left with big smiles on our faces.

“Best Italian in town”
Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

Delicious! Caffe ariannas is one of my favourite places to eat in kamloops.. The food is simple and beautiful..no frills or gimmicks...The salad to start the meal is fresh and crisp and simply dressed with a nice olive oil and the perfect touch of salt. The pasta is always cooked to perfection and the sauces are smooth and well seasoned. My boyfriend and I went there for dinner and we both had pasta (came with fresh bread), a BIG glass of wine and a dessert and the bill came to 42$. Yes the decore isn't the most extravagant but it is bright and friendly....and really isn't the food supposed to be the star of the experience? In the previous reviews the "small" menu was made out to be a negative thing but the humble menu is a clear reflection of homemade quality food. If you want a 10 page menu then go to a chain restaurant where your meal was probably conceptulized in a board room and made in a factory far far away. The owners are wonderful people. They truly care about your experience and are always very accommodating. If your not a sucker for flashy decor and fake pleasantries and you appreciate straight forward honest food made from the soul then you will love Ariannas.

“Semplicemente eccellente!”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Looking for lunch, and craving a taste of the Mediterranean? This small, very casual cafe really cares about being true to its Italian heritage. Latte here is the best I've found in Kamloops, and the desserts are an amazing value. Meringue was the best I have had anywhere outside of Europe. I ordered a "Titi's salad" and it was excellent - everything fresh, well-proportioned, and very flavorful. Portion size was quite substantial, too. Service was friendly and efficient, price was very reasonable considering the quality - and quality was extremely high! You couldn't ask for more...

“Italian fare at its best”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Great spot for lunch. The coffee is smooth, rich and flavourful and the food is not far behind in quality. It is small, but cozy, and friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend this spot to anyone travelling through Kamloops.
