Lovely homemade Tagliatelle with a seafood sauce. I enjoyed it. A bit too saucy but very tasty. The Mexican pizza also looked good and so did the carbonara spaghetti. Nice friendly waiters and reasonable prices

Cosy restaurant with beautiful murals of Venice on the walls. This was my first time here and the service was excellent. A friend and I shared a pizza - crust was thin and crispy and the pizza was generously covered with the ingredients. Delicious! There is a small strip of tables outside the entrance, but if you are not a smoker, I would recommend sitting inside to avoid the cigarette smoke. They have daily lunch specials, as well as an all day special on a Monday and a Sunday family special,

New owner and pending name change. I am really looking forward to some changes being implemented. Not too impressed with the takeaway pizzas which lacked a proper filling. Is that not the reason for buying a pizza? The dough is just a base to put the filling on.

My first visit to this quaint restaurant and I was not disappointed. What a gem. Fantastic Italian food and a super selection. Greeted by the Owner we experienced fabulous service with friendly smiles and efficiency. The Owner personally went through the specials with us and afforded us options We had a variety of starters and mains and every dish was superb. Focaccia, pasta, salad, pizza, steak - everything was delicious. The sauces are incredible and the food was cooked to perfection as ordered The food is reasonably priced especially as the portions are a good size. Service was great. Food was fabulous. I am definitely going to this little treasure regularly.

Resturant at Ilala is terrible!! Pasta had no taste with almost no meat. Pizza was burned. We took a takeaway. Wish we ate there.... to ask my money back.

Very friendly and helpful service by owner and son. Excellent food at reasonable prices. The Gorgonzola salad and prawn tail starter in garlic butter is a must. Highly recommended is the spicy "Dello Zio" seafood pasta.

The food is great. Sit in or take away's. Don't mix this restaurant up with the restaurant at Ilala which is so not in the same league. This restaurant is so on top of their game. Food and service is great.

A delightful restaurant hidden above Soar in a great neighborhood. The establishment is well above ground level (building has lifts next to entrance) with beautiful sea views. Some tables are inside and some on a balcony. Good menu, primarily Italian, but also with other dishes. There were specials that the owner/ manager took us through, who also checked on us another few times during the meal. The waitress (Cher) was sharp, knowledgable, friendly and offered good service. Will definitely return

Cafe Italia is literally down the road from me and many little restaurants have come and gone in the Brownsdrift Centre. Cafe italia has been down this side for a few years now and has grown quite a large loyalty base of clients. It offers true Italian food and their quality is really great. The wood fired pizzas are AMAZING!, thin crust with a great tomato base! Try the Trintino or Patagonia!!

You know when you see the owners mother in the kitchen hand making fresh pasta that you will be in for a real Italian meal. Thin base pizza cooked in wood oven fire with a fantastic selections of toppings, fresh handmade pasta and one of the best perri- perri chickens around
