Went there on a saturday evening. Had just arrived in Windermere so we had not been able to book a table for dinner. The only restaurant that took interest in us even though we had not made a reservation in advance was Cafe Italia. A nice guy said that we could sit down and wait about 20 mins for a table. He gave us the menu and offered us to start with a drink while waiting for a table. We ordered pizza and it was one of the best pizzas I have ever eaten. Recommended

Visited with my 5 year old son couple of days ago!! Appalled by the horrible manners and behaviour of the polish male waiters in the cafe! Use to be such a sweet place for lunch/we could even smoke in the place-most of the tables in the cafe are situated outside for bloody sakes/,the polish workers are not respectful towards the variety of clients and Windermere is a worldwide tourist attraction!! Really?!?Use to love the food and the place....if i do return there shall have a personal conversation with the owner of the cafe.mrs.Ana Stoeva,Penrith,Cumbria

Visited here with my mother for lunch whilst staying in Windermere for a few days. I had a sandwich and she had a salad. Friendly attentive staff. Generous portions. Good place to sit outside and people watch with a coffee or a drink and some nice food.

Liked the look of this cafe/restaurant in its prominent position with indoor and outdoor seating the chap on the door warned it was cash only which in this day seems odd as most people I would imagine don’t carry a lot of cash however this did not detract from the lovely food and pleasant atmosphere.
The staff couldn’t have been nicer very attentive and good service.
The food was lovely especially the tiramisu. Mains of spaghetti bolognese and toasties followed by crepes and the tiramisu.
Nice coffee to finish off.
Only downsides a little cramped and because the doors are open to the outside area we were “bugged” by flies and a wasp but this could be resolved with one of those bug things.
Nice experience good food attentive service a little pricey for a cafe but overall not bad.
