I'm not sure why this restaurant has such good reviews. It is ok, but average. The food and service are average, that's all. Maybe it's because Cardiff isn't really blessed with many good restaurants that the average can sometimes appear more than it is. The restaurant is badly in need of some investment in decoration, furniture and equipment. The toilets... More

Mama Mia. Better than eating in Italy.My partner and I love the food and atmosphere in Cafe Citta. We recommend it to all our friends and family. It's so popular that it's best to book several days ahead.

To think we almost went to Prezzo. Citta is proper food served and cooked by proper Italian speaking people, who really know their stuff. Thought I'd died and gone to heaven. Fantastic food, lovely ambience. We'll be back 😍

I visit Cardiff on a regular basis and keep going back to Cafe Citta. Its quite a unique little restaurant set in the centre of Cardiff. It only seats about 30 so booking is essential. The food is just amazing

The food and service were fantastic and this is such an amazing little business. The pollo Milanese was out of this world and I would definitely have that again!

Tried a few times to get in here. The food was lovely very fresh only downside was the service. We waited a long time to get a drink and the wait for our food was 40 over minutes we'd almost finished the bottle of wine before the food arrived. That said it was tasty and fresh

Exactly what you want from a local restaurant. Good, home made, fresh food. Great service - toilets need work and not accessible. Book in advance.

Thank Kate E
