Every month me & my friends have dinner club somewhere different. We had been trying to get in to cafe citta for a while and it had always been too busy, well it was worth the wait. Lovely independent Italian, service was good and food was better. I could not fault it. A+

Tried to get in here for ages (definitely pre book!) and was worth the wait. Food was very authentic and generous portions, tasted very fresh. Pizzas from wood fire oven so you know they're good! Service also very friendly - highly recommended

We chose this based on reviews on TripAdvisor and it certainly lived up to its positive reviews. The menu was varied and the food was excellent and modestly priced; the wine was very good too. The service was friendly, helpful and efficient. We went early on a Tuesday without booking and were easily accommodated but by the time we left... More

We went here recently for dinner, upon arrival we were greeted by friendly inviting staff. It's a lovely quaint setting, very homely and a beautiful interior. Small enough to be intimate without being too small that you're tripping over one another. The food was outstanding! Extremely tasty, fresh ingredients, beautifully seasoned, decent sized portions and reasonably priced. Even though it... More

First visit at Cafe Cita......booked for 6 people. Absolutely stunning food and excellent service. Highly recommend but book first! Had pasta dish but pizzas looked amazing, will definitely be re-visiting! Great to support a family business rather than a chain!

Visited a few weeks ago with my daughter, luckily able to just walk in. Fab seafood linguini, great atmosphere and service. Highly recommend. Hoping to re-visit next weekend!! Excellent prosecco too. Family run and all prepared where you can see. Particularly enjoyed watching, specially twirling the pizza dough!!

concert started at 7.30. Failed to get a table earlier on, but tried again 15 minutes later after being advised by a leaving diner to ask for the "waiting table" Success. Actually preferred this table to the others as we could people watch while waiting! Very friendly welcome from staff. Very prompt service.Most important, excellent food. Excellent all round. Well...
