Have gone there several times each year. Authentic Italian in original location. Second location not nearly as romantic but good food and BYOB

Last Monday night we were in town on business and also pleasure, We saw the reviews on Trip Advisor and tried it for ourselves and we were not disappointed. The staff could not be friendlier and the food was great and the service was top notch. If visiting Grapevine, do not miss out.

We are so glad that we went here! Don't be fooled - it doesn't look like much from the outside, but this restaurant is absolutely worth a visit. I loved the lobster ravioli that I tried, and the Creme Brulee that my wife and I split for dessert was also delicious (and it was free - the restaurant paid for... More

It doesn't look like much from the outside, but you're transformed when you go in and find a very cozy warm and inviting restaurant. It can be busy so I wouldn't rely on a walk in plan. Also don't forget it's byob, but if you do there's a liquor store just up the street for some wine. Meals at our... More

Literally, some of the best Italian I've had in ages! Fortunately our family doesn't mind offering samples of their meal, so I got to try everything from lasagna to spaghetti and meatballs to cheese ravioli. Everything was wonderful! Will absolutely be back next time I'm in the area

You can never go wrong if you are in the mood for Italian at Cafe Italia. Love it that you can also bring your own wine. We have been several enjoyable times.

A couple things to note about Cafe Italia. It's BYOB, so plan accordingly. Also, call ahead for a reservation or plan to arrive by 6...maybe 6:20, unless you want to wait. With those out of the way, let me unequivocally encourage you to visit Cafe Italia. It's the best Italian around, without question. From simple spaghetti to lasagna, rigatoni vodka... More
