We thought we must be in the wrong place! This restaurant is so unremarkable from the outside. It's in a strip mall! And it was practically empty for lunch on Saturday, so apparently that is the time to go. The interior decor was nice, and menu had a good variety. The complimentary bread was wonderful. We ordered stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer, and they were tiny, but tasty. Service was fine, but not overly attentive. Our entrees were very well prepared and served piping hot in large quantities. After several days of tex-mex and brisket, this was a nice change of pace at a decent price.

Cafe Italia is kind of a hole in the wall place and not much to look at from the outside...but this place has awesome food and gets packed regularly so make reservations! Best part is you can bring your own wine or whatever you want to drink really...

Very Impressive! We popped in at Cafe' Italia last Friday not about 7:30 with no reservations, our mistake. Dino, the owner, greeted us an told us we would have about a 30 minute wait. He quickly retrieved a couple of wine glasses and served us the wine we brought, it was BYOB, to help our wait pass. We visited with Dino during our wait and were treated very well by the staff as they worked around us trying to serve patrons and get work done. We were seated in about 20 minutes, the service was excellent, food was great and pricing was very reasonable. A must for our next visit!

Great food, great prices, great service, great desserts. We had a family dinner with multiple entrees from fish to pasta to beef and no one had any complaints. The in-house desserts were fantastic too. Nice that they are BYOB too, so bring a bottle (or 2) of wine with you. The family behind us had an infant with them so kids are obviously not a problem. Reservations would be wise on popular nights, especially with any group larger than about 4 people. We will definitely return.
