“Went for Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2013

We were party of 3 for lunch
BYOB is an added benefit.

T II C has a nice lunch special menu; salad included - starting @ 8.95 - @ great value
We started with the house salad and bread - the salad was very good
the bread and dipping oil was excellent

2 of us had the Lasagna Di Vitello Al Forno - baked veal lasagna - very good
the other person had Pollo Paillard Alla Griglia - grilled paillard of chicken with rugola, portobella, roasted peppers & mozzarella - also very good

The service was just ok.
The atomosphere was nice.

Give Trattoria Il Cafone a try, you will not be disappointed

“Average Italian”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2013

Had dinner here with family twice. Food was OK - it wasn't bad, but it wasn't the best I've ever had. Tables are tight in a small space. Waitstaff could have been a little more attentive to our needs. I probably will not revisit when there are better Italian restaurants to go to.

“Hearty Italian, no frills, no fuss”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2012

Have eaten at this little restaurant with friends several times and no disappointments... Well, one slightly sad Veal Plate, but that was the exception.

Food here is a step or two above basic good family Italian food. Very good selection of daily specials and the meatballs are worth the visit as a stand-alone. Really is a varied menu which should offer something for everyone.

Service always attentive, always happy, and always friendly.

Wine shop next door, so Bring Your Own Bottle.

Great place to eat with friends who have an appetite and who are not looking for a candle-lit romantic supper!

Good prices, great food.

“We're regulars there”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2012

BYOB family Italian restaurant with free parking behind the building. Very good food. Nightly list of specials. But specials often cost more than anything else on the menu. Ask for prices on specials if you find them tempting.
