Had a lovely meal at Cafe Citta last night with my mum and son. Restaurant is tiny, but has a lovely relaxed atmosphere. The menu is basically pizza and pasta, but every dish tastes as though it is freshly made with care. Definitely worth a visit. Booking essential.

I took my Mum and Dad for lunch at Cafe Citta one Saturday after reading the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food was delicious, from the pea fritter starters to the excellent choice of pasta main courses and the lovely ice-cream we had for dessert. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive and explained... More

Small and 'Cosy' eatery in central Cardiff. Food homemade and fresh. Dishes vary on each visit as made by different chefs. Generally very good, service friendly and you're lucky to get a table at peak times if you haven't booked. A pleasant change from the plethora of chains in the city. Real food with the associated idiosyncrasies and charm.

A beautiful little restaurant that services authentic Italian food. We've been a number of times and every time there has been friendly staff, homely atmosphere and excellent food. Can't recommend enough!

We went on recommendation and were not disappointed. The staff are friendly and helpful, the food is authentic and wholesome and the atmosphere is cosy and intimate . It is a great find in the middle of a city where there too many impersonal chains of restaurants

Me and my partner attended Cafe Citta for our Valentine's Day dinner. All I can say is gorgeous Italian food! Starters was simple but extremely tasty followed by mains (Italian pizza), and the only word to describe it was delicious! Excellent customer service, waitress was very friendly and gave us a warm welcome. It was almost like we were regulars.... More

This is a lovely authentic Italian restaurant, just like the off the beaten track family restaurants you try to find in Italy. Excellent food and warm welcome, a little on the small side but makes for a nice atmosphere. I love it, its only problem is its too popular, so difficult to just drop in. Book to guarantee a table...

We have dined here several times, and Citta is always difficult to get into due to its popularity. There isn't much space, but this doesn't take anything away from the atmosphere. It feels as though you are part of the family and the staff are attentive and certainly go the extra mile. The food is Italian, and although look basic... More
