I've eaten there a few times; it's not one of my favorite's in town. My friends like it better than I do, so don't understand why I always prefer someplace else. I'm probably an Italian food snob.

Had a wonderful meal with friends during our first visit to Caffe Italia. Everyone gave positive reviews on their selections, which included veal, shrimp scampi and my special of baked sole with shrimp stuffing. The service was excellent and we were allowed to enjoy a casual dinner and conversation (keep in mind we arrived at an early hour). The restaurant... More

To end our evening unfortunately I left... More

Love the ambiance of the bar surrounded by tables - and ours was at a window! The service was friendly and impeccable and the food was outstanding. The stuffed figs appetizer was just delicious and a perfect lead in to the baked stuffed (with scallops and shrimp!) haddock topped with asparagus. We ate at several restaurants in Marblehead during our... More

We had Jennifer as our wait person. She was fabulous! Made excellent suggestions, was engaging and made the entire dinner a wonderful treat. We had the ceasar salad and the spaghetti and meatballs with tiramisu and a cappuccino to top off the evening. Everthing, from service to food was excellent.

We frequent Cafe Italia at least twice a month. The salads are always fresh and plentiful. The bolognese is our favorite! Donna the owner, couldn't be nicer every time we go in. Highly recommend it for date night or family dinner.

Always fresh. Always tasty, always cooked just right We probably go there 8-10 times per year and never fail to really enjoy ourselves. Also prices... More
