“Unusual find in small town Montana”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

From the start nice atmosphere, menu with lots of unique items, presentation of food very appealing, especially the Caesar salad with the "tuile," a new word for me.
All food items for our group were rated very good!
Overall, not your usual chain Italian with friendly attentive service. Enjoy!
Only little hit was the oh by the way unmentioned $1.00 per the offered anchovies on the Caesar that showed on the bill - tacky for as much as these meals cost.

“Has something changed?”
Reviewed 22 January 2012

Have been to Cafe Italia several times, and have always had good food and service. That is, until a recent visit. Different waitstaff (different management?). Our waiter forgot about us, and we had to ask for more water and wine. Our bread arrived obviously burned (big restaurant faux pas -- burned bread goes in the trash!). The cheese on the usually very good polenta dish was overbrowned. The ambiance has always been very nice, tasteful and low key, and it was a pleasure to support a good, independently-owned Italian restaurant. We'll give Cafe Italia one more try and hope that our last experience was a fluke. If not, it will be sad to see how Cafe Italia has changed for the worse, and we'll have to go elsewhere.
