A quiet and cozy place. We found the service and food to be very good. The bread was freshly made and melted in your mouth. Yum! I enjoyed the lasagna & soup while others had chicken & veal dishes with salads. The Cafe offered a nice selection of spirits too. We found the prices to be typical of meal &... More

Enjoyed a delicious Chicken Parmesan, mixed green salad, and homemade vanilla gelato with raspberry sauce. Service was prompt and personable. I'll be going again.

Cafe Italia opened several years back with such promise! The menu was daring and unconventional: new takes on old Italian standards! The place was often busy and it was well situated on the newly trendy Montana Avenue, right in the heart of old Downtown Billings. Travel forward a few years and it's a lonely shadow of its former self with... More

Love this restaurant! Never seen it crowded. Very friendly knowledgable service, and terrific food. The Calamari is some of the best I've ever had. It is topped with a sprinkle of melted cheeses and thin slices of mushrooms , and served in a brown paper bag. The dipping sauce that is served with it is just perfect. Eat it with... More

Wow, this food was unique and delicious! Unsure why it was empty when we were there; but we enjoyed the food! Ambiance is beautiful and bathroom was super clean.

Pizza here is really good. Even my wife's on gluten free crust was excellent. Waitress seemed distracted. Not bad just a little on the lazy side. We would have ordered more such as drinks or desert is she had asked.

Traveling back through Billings from Yellowstone we stopped in the historic downtown area and walked around. We decided to eat here based on other good reviews and the look of the place once we were standing in front of it. The restaurant has a great look and feel to it. The sort of place you might expect to have the... More

I don't usually eat pasta but decided to be adventurous. I had the butternut squash stuffed ravioli with blue cheese sauce and candied walnuts and 3 weeks later, I cannot stop thinking about it. I have never had this experience in a restaurant before. Every mouthful was a bite of heaven. I wanted to hug the chef but had to... More
