“Don't let the location fool you”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

Let me start by saying that we have driven by this place countless times and have said "We should try that place sometime". Well, that sometime was tonight. It was an excellent evening from the time we walked through the door. Our server was knowledgable on the menu and drinks, even recommending an Italian beer that I had never tried before (it was ice cold, and tasty). It was half price appetizer night so we ordered the spinach artichoke dip, and the mozzarella caprese. The artichoke dip and bread was served nice and warm, and the mozzarella caprese was very cold with very fresh tomatoes, and cheese. My wife ordered the fettuccini alfredo with chicken that was perfect, I ordered the capellini San Marco that was plated nicely with sautéed shrimp, mushrooms, and spinach (not a bite was left!) my in-laws shared an order of lasagna and the portion was plenty for them to split and still be full. After all of that, what better way to finish off a fine meal than with an ice cold slice of NY cheesecake. All in all, we were pleasantly surprised and are now kicking ourselves for not trying this place sooner. Enjoy!

“Hillbilly italian”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

It's okay I call it hillbilly Italian it's like going to an Italian resturant in a small town just lots of cheese and stupid decor. If you want good Italian go to the woodlands and eat at the grotto your bill will only be about 15 dollars more

“Quiet Atmosphere with Authentic Italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

We have never gone wrong eating here. It is always great food without the loud atmosphere you get with the big national chains. We never worry about recommending this place to others.

“Best Italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

We've been visiting this restaurant since it opened. Love, love, love their food. I suspect that the only negative review was influenced because of poor service. We've never had anything other than the most excellent food. The chef will accommodate anything and the specials are always superior and unique! We've eaten Italian at the best NY restaurants and this one is right up with them. You're missing out if you don't give it a try.

“Local Neighborhood Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

We visit the Italian Café about once a month for some unpretentious dining on delicious food at a reasonable price. Located at the entrance to the neighborhood, we have found a friend.
