“Friendly Italian with real integrity”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

Just had a post-gym lunch with a girlfriend at the unassuming but friendly and sociable Caffe Rosso. It was well worth the 5 minute walk from the centre of town. A small place that might, at first glance, strike you as a coffee bar rather than a restaurant. The menu is tiny but the flavours are extraordinary. I had mushroom and truffle lasagne; quite simply some of the best pasta I have ever eaten, washed down with a very palatable glass of house rose. Curiousity got the better of me and I ordered the chocolate semifreddo to finish - sheer heaven. The owner suggested that eating it might be like falling in love again; frankly it was better! A little piece of chocolate perfection. Cannot recommend this place highly enough.

“Lovely find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

This cafe is nestled in a village type part of Harrogate. Lovely food and great customer service especially from chef Stephano who makes sure that you are getting the right door order to suit your palette.

“Lovely cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2014

We had lunch here and enjoyed it very much. Lovely tasty meatballs in a rich tomato sauce, lovely smooth and chocolatey semi fredo for dessert. The biscotti with the coffee was world class! Its a café folks, don't expect Michelin starred food or posh surroundings, come in hungry and enjoy the tasty home cooked Italian food on offer. We'll be back again that's for sure!

“Great local cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

The biscotti you get with the coffee are superb and the lunch dishes are excellent. Just outside of the town centre this is a great local cafe and a well known lunch destination - often packed when I walk past!
