We regularly visit the European Cafe and totally enjoy their Pizza. They have some variations from the usual one, which we encourage the readers to try! Friendly and great service!

The friendly atmosphere of this family run restaurant immediately makes you feel comfortable and welcome. The flavours were some of the best Italian I remember having in years. Excellent in every way. A great dining experience that is authentic. We will be coming back again...for sure. Every family member in our group rated it the best they have had in years. Many thanks for keeping it real and the way Italian food should be.More

My first time here and LOVED it. Simple but authentic Italian with attentive and friendly service. The warm apple cheesecake is to die for!

It’s been a few years since I last ate at the European, but last night we dined there with friends and discovered that the high standard of food and service remained the same. Will be back!

After rejecting a booked table at another eatery on Norwood Parade because it was too cramped, cold and noisy, we were accommodated here without a booking, early on a cold Saturday evening. This turned out to be a win for us. We were provided with...a warm and friendly greeting by the lady in charge of the front of house. She offered us a choice of tables and we chose one which provided plenty of room for the four of us. The menu provided a great selection of dishes to choose from and the wine list was comprehensive. Our beverage and food orders were taken soon after we were seated with the server displaying a thorough knowledge of the menu. Drinks were served promptly and our main course orders took only a short time to arrive. Service was friendly, courteous and attentive without being intrusive. Each of the four of us found our main courses to be delicious and filling. The only minor criticism of our meal is that the coffees we ordered after we had eaten were served warm rather than hot. Thoroughly recommend this establishment for a tasty and filling meal accompanied by excellent service.More

The food at the European is very authetic Italian and the service is magnificent. Six of us dined on a week night and the meals were perfect, delivered very promptly and with a friendly smile. The staff are brilliant. Everything perfect.

We were a group of four and had dinner, ordering various dishes both off the specials board and off the menu. Great food! Spagetti Marinara, a Specials Board Spagetti dish, Bistecca and one other dish. All were superb, followed by two desserts to share and...coffees. A great meal and great service! I can recommend the European Cafe for a quality authentic Italian mealMore

I have been dining at the European for a number of years and the reason why is because it is consistently good!! Family run for almost 40years!! Well done guys!
