Went to Cafe Rosso last Sunday for lunch with my mum and an aunt, we were going to go to Drum and Monkey till saw the feedback on Trip Advisor, thats why we ended up at Cafe Rosso as it was No 1 in Harrogate. Little bit out of Harrogate, but that was no problem and in fact made parking easier. The food was lovely and would go again, was horrible wet day and windows were bit steamed up which was about only thing that was disappointing! Staff very helpful and good, no Credit cards, thankfully just had enough cash on me! Will be back

We had been recommended by a friend to try for lunch when in Harrogate. I can only echo most of what has been said in regard to the excellence of this Cafe. The food is freshly cooked by Stefano and was perfect in taste and presentation,( I have a food allergy and Stefano was happy adapt the ingredients to suit). I had a Chicken Salad , the chicken had been stuffed with sun-dried tomatoes and lemon zest and the flavour was excellent.
Stefano and his staff give you a lovely warm welcome and its very clear Stefano cares not only about his food but very much so about his customers. If you are in Harrogate you must seek out this little gem.

A friend had been saying good things about Cafe Rosso for over a year. For some reason I thought, yes, it'll be nice but one cafe is much like another. How wrong! The moment we stepped throught the door we were greeted with genuine friendliness, the atmosphere was buzzing and staff and customers all looked happy.
We had pastries and cakes which were so delicious we immediately decided to return for lunch!
The food was outstanding , the staff could not have been more helpful or more welcoming. It truly was a little corner of Italy which I look forward to revisiting as soon as possible. Just wish I lived in Harrogate and could join in their monthly dinners.

Rosso never fails to deliver delicious authentic Italian food. It's a great place for lunch or dinner and so handy to be able to park outside during the day to meet for coffee. Stefano is always engaging and really cares about his customers.

Try it...

We wanted a light lunch during an overnight stay in Harrogate and looked for recommendations on Trip Advisor. The cafe is not central but well worth seeking out. It is very much a cafe in it's appearance and decor but does have a nice settee and a table in an alcove for a realxing coffee. We only had soup with bread and a cofee each - both delicious and the staff were very friendly and efficient. The specials board looked impressive and made us wish we could have managed a more substantial meal.
