Consistent fare served by experts. We have gone numerous times and the food is always good. BYOB makes the restaurant a find. The only complaint is that their "specials" are always the same. Why not just make them part of the menu.

Café Italia is a small, but charming eatery. The food was very good and served in large portions. Of course it is Italian, and to my way of thinking, very old country. The measl we ate at lunch was on a busy Christmas weekend and it was served quickly and hot. The salads were fresh and tasty and the bread was sooo good. And wow, the prices were very much lower than we expected. Our only regret is that we don't live closer.

I drive by the restaurant all the time and see that the parking lot is always full, which is a good indication that it is well liked. I recently went there last Tuesday for dinner and ordered the veal ciofio and it was amazing. It had sauteed mushrooms and artichokes in a lemon white wine sauce. The meal came with a salad and a small bowl of speghetti. Everything on the menu has a good price and the service was also good. I will definitely be back for round two.

The location and decorum have no pretentions but the food is authentic and excellent. Appetizers and dessert are just OK, but all the entrees are delicious with a great choice in veal, chicken and fish. We like the fact that we can bring our own bottle of wine. Expect an enjoyable evening with tasty Italian dishes at a great price.

As an Italian guy from New york, what a find this place is! I like to start with the pasta fagioli and then the fried clamari with a spicy marinara sauce--The way it's done back home. Our small children also love both dishes. You can't miss with any of the veal dishes and another favorite is the mixed seafood over pasta. A real surprise was the quality of a filet mignon that I had--Very high quality and well prepared! My wife likes a dish called "Sunrise Chicken" that isn't on the menu so just ask about it. , and excellent familiy-friendly service can be expected. Also, it is BYOB so that keeps the cost down and it is nice to bring a bottle of whatever you like. I highly recommend Cafe Italia--We eat there about every two weeks.Make reservations, they are in a small strip center and almost always packed. You won't be disappointed!
