Description: Restaurant Minuet was established in 1986, we are a small family run business serving genuinely home cooked Italian food with a difference. It started with a simple menu but over the years it has developed into what it is today. Our aim is not to serve pretentious, overpriced food with a drizzle of sauce, but serve good tasty wholesome dishes with the majority of which are our own recipes at honest prices. Our customers will enjoy their meal in a friendly and relaxing atmosphere to the soothing sound of specially selected pieces of classical music, that has inspired so many of our dishes. We are not licensed to serve wine and spirits, but you are welcome to bring your own. Corkage is free. Please note that during busy times there will be other customers waiting for a table, as we don't charge for alcohol time will be restricted. Please respect other diners waiting for a table.

“Genuine Italian Food & Service”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

For fast service, lovely Italian food, reasonable prices and a central location, this place is very hard to beat in the capital. What we particularly like about it is the choice of food for a small establishment, ensuring that all our children have something on the menu to suit them.

My personal favourite is an option for addional chillies or garlic on their pizzas, at no extra charge! If I had one criticism, they do not have a licence to sell alcohol but they are happy for you to bring your own bottle along.

In short, it's a traditional family Italian Welsh restaurant with all the positives you would expect from such an establishment. We will be back there soon.

“Tasty reasonable priced food with a very warm welcome”
Reviewed December 8, 2012 via mobile

We had lunch here today, a very busy Saturday before Christmas, we didn't wait long for a table, the pasta (seafood spaghetti) was perfect, my son appreciated the pizza, good size portions reasonably priced, this cafe is a gem, small and not licensed, but nevertheless a must for visitors to Cardiff who appreciate pasta.

“I recommend it”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

I have visited this place for a luch in a weekday, because a friend recommended me it.
It's a really nice place, good for food for a good price and the staff is verty friendly and helpful.
The only negative point is maybe it's too small, howewer for the space is not noice or unconfortable.
I strongly recommend it!
