Italian Cafe review
8.5/10
Gathering a squad of twenty five women together for a birthday celebration can be tough. But not when you have the help of the team at the Italian Caffe on hand. We were looking for a lively casual place that would cater to most, and that’s exactly what we got. Our interaction with the staff started before the day of the meal, with multiple calls to organise decorations and a cake that was to be delivered before hand. The initial calls through to the reception on the night were friendly and welcoming and the staff were superefficient. During our meal we were entertained by a few colourful characters who waited our table. The staff were only too happy to add banter to the evening’s proceedings, while orchestrating a smooth service that helped us have a great time...

Great value, especially given the City Centre location. Staff were attentive without being pushy, food was really great, plenty of it. Worth bearing in mind for a pre-theatre. We'll certainly be back.

I had a wonderful late lunch with friends on Saturday. We were a little late due to traffic but this was no problem. We were served by a delightful older gentleman. He couldn’t do enough for us. Thank you very much and we look forward to coming back again soon!

Even though the restaurant wasn’t busy, they still didn’t serve the wine until after our starter was finished.
