2 waiters for the whole restaurant ruined the whole experience! We got reservations because there were 11 of us on Sunday night. We waited 10 minutes for menus didn't even get dessert because we were so frustrated. We only got our check because I raised my voice so loud that I could not be ignored.

We always enjoy this restaurant. Very good food! We often order one of their, "Specials" and I have found that their 8oz-9oz filet mignon is really good! Cooked perfectly, lots of sides, and at under $40, in a BYOB/Wine restaurant it makes for a reasonably priced meal that is both filling and delicious. We usually go there with friends and each of us has ordered a variety of items both on the menu and as nightly specials and we've never had a bad meal. We dine there about once a month. Recommended.

I have eaten Italian food in the North End of Boston many times and I have to say that Cafe Italia has the best Italian food in Texas.

The owner, Dino and staff Belo and Niki are extremely professional and friendly.

Cafe Italia is BYOB which makes it a very affordable night out. Our family has eaten there many times and I always look forward to returning.

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...
