    Not being a Pizza lover my wife and I with friends from Holland wanted to try some thing a little different,we heard about Cafe citta having good reviews so we thought we would try it and we were not disappointed. We had different dishes including pizza and could not fault the food or service, the staff are very friendly and there to help if there was one thing I was a little negative about it would be the space between tables and walk way there was not much room to move but that said it adds somewhat to the friendliness of the place.

    I’ve been working in Cardiff since November last year and have tried a lot of different restaurants in that time but the food and atmosphere in this small Italian restaurant was the best so far. Everything was fresh and plainly made with love. Thank you, I will be back next week.

    I have visited this restaurant on a few occasions, every time the food has been excellent. My favourite is the seafood pasta, plenty of fresh seafood and the pasta perfectly cooked. The staff are lovely and helpful. Most of the time you have to book early.

    Very simple , food still good but wine list states Prosecco was from Valdobiadene which would be a DOCG that they we have had previously , it is now a DOC from Treviso and the difference is a much poorer wine still at 25 quid a bottle and not worth the money , it also should have the menu changed as its mis leading and spoils what was a complete offering .

    Have just come back from another fabulous meal at Cafe Citta. We both ordered the Linguine Citta - the most delicious pasta we’ve ever tasted. We’ve been here 12 times now and will keep coming back - have already booked for the new year! Polite, attentive staff and perfect service as always. Thanks guys!

    Great food, great value, great service. I highly recommend dining here at any time if you can get a table. I recommend calling and booking too to avoid disappointment.

    When attending the Wales versus Barbarians rugby match last Saturday, we , my wife and me, were wandering through the streets on our way to the Millenium Stadium, when we chanced upon this cafe, tucked away in Church Street. All the restaurants and bars were pretty chocker, so we poked our heads around this cafe's door, only to find it was full to capacity. Nothing dauntedm my wife suggested to the staff that we would ahppily sit outside in the enclosed terrace, and enjoy a glass of Italian red wine. They agreed, and we spent 15 minutes quaffing down a very good glass, a large one, outside on the pavement, watching the crowds making their way to the match. In view of the welcome, and the evident relish all the diners inside were displaying, it won't be long before we will be going back, this time for tucker too.

    I've tried to get a table here for over a year so was delighted when I got one recently. The food was great, authentically Italian and tasty. The service was good. The bill was fair. But...but I left feeling a bit underwhelmed. I can't really say why, other than the the wow factor was somehow missing. Having lived in Italy a number of times, and having read the raving reviews, maybe my expectations had been but up unreasonably? I will go again but I'm sad I can't rave yet in my review

    Is it fashionable? No. Is it flashy? No. Is it fantastic? Of course it is. Service and food top-drawer as ever. The best Italian in Cardiff, just make sure you book in advance.

    Delicious food efficiently served. Proper Italian cooking in the overlooking kitchen area. Probably not for anyone with mobility problems - bit squashed and toilets up one floor.

    Last minute decision to eat here and clearly very lucky to get a table. Probably the best decision restaurant wise in 2019. Although the premises a little small service was fantastic and felt like you eating in somebody’s dining room. Food-well- it was fantastic. Real home cooked Italian menu. Choice sufficient. Plenty on the specials board and everything cooked in front of you with fresh ingredients. Would highly recommend this restaurant but book ahead as so many being turned away. Fabulous food fabulous venue fabulous city

    The specials starter of Broad Beans was wonderful. My husband had pizza and I had chicken breasts. Very small place but vibrant. Book in advance as very popular

    Best tip that I can give you is to book in advance if you wish to visit this restaurant. It is small and quaint and while many restaurants are half full, this little gem is always full. You an expect classic Italian dishes as well as other appetizing Italian dishes. The menu focuses mostly on the appetizer, pizzas and pastas. They also serve meat, chicken and fish. Leave space for dessert because this is a must! Tiramisu and creme brulee to make your heart melt! Service is easy going, friendly and very welcoming.

    Visited for lunch. This is a small, quaint Italian restaurant which I highly recommend. You definitely need to book as so many people were turned away whilst we were there as the place was fully booked. We booked the day before and they only managed to squeeze us in. The staff are all very polite and helpful. We both had pizzas which were freshly made and lovely. Will definitely return.
