I'm perplexed by a couple of the really negative reviews. Our experience couldn't have been more positive.
We had checked the menus of several of the eateries in the area before seeing Cafe Italiano's and it had so many delicious Italian dishes on it, we chose it hands down.
My husband and I have traveled to Italy many times and also are former Italian restaurant owners so we do know authentic Italian food. We were so delighted by each of our dinners which started with a nice composed salad tossed with a perfectly balanced dressing and served with a buttery house made (not just house warmed-up) bread.
My husband, a huge fan of Spaghetti Carbonara was really happy to see that they made it the traditional way, rich with egg, pancetta, parmesan and perfectly al dente pasta. I chose the Chicken Milano and couldn't stop raving about the rich four cheese sauce made with sherry wine giving it just a blush of sweet offset by the artichoke hearts and tender chicken medallions.
For dessert, we chose two of the menu items they import from Italy and Sicily and got them to go so we could enjoy them later. I had the Lemon Della Nona, a buttery, lemon crumb cake studded with toasted pine nuts and it literally melted in my mouth. My husband opted for the cannoli, rich riccotta-based filling with citron and chocolate wrapped in a crisp cannoli shell. Both excellent and authentic.
Please don't let some of the negative reviews stop you from trying this great place for yourself. This was our first visit and we are looking forward to many more.
