Researching the area before visiting the area meant I had to feed my coffee habit here. However we were disappointed by the much longed for coffee con leche. I suspect it was the use of UHT milk that tempered the coffee. Everyone in Almunecar seems to use and it's simply not to my taste. Lovely venue but didn't return for... More

When you visit Almuñécar, you have to drink youre coffee here. They also bake the most delicious pancakes and have very tasty icecream. But must important, Friendly and good service. When we visit Almuñécar next year, we surely will visit La Italiana Cafe again.

The service is terribly slow and really not professional. This is a bar with a cheap/kitsh decoration not a restaurant at all ! We grabbed pizzas and seriously I suspect that we had been served industrial frozen stuff...no comment.

Dear Marco P, We apologise for making you suffer a bad experience. It is true that we have had several problems with the waffle machine, a technician came and solved the problem, it was a thermostat incident. I would appreciate if you could give us a second chance to also have a chat and apologise face to face. Best wishes,... More

Pizzas are average but the crepes are fantastic. Prices are good especially on certain days when there's 2-for-1

If you have a sweet tooth, you need to stop here. Great coffee, ice cream and crepes. We spoke with the owner and he make the ice cream himself as well as all of the desserts. We also tried the cheesecake and a few other treats. They were all amazing.

We have been meaning to pop in here for ages, called in for coffee and were so impressed with the inside of the cafe. Did not have time to eat wbut definitely will go back for food next time we are in Almunecar. The cakes looked good and I really fancy one of their crepes.

Ate here with my wife and two children whilst staying a week in Almunecar. We were looking forward to a Pizza after a week of Tapas and headed for the 'La Italiana Cafe'. The place is a little bizarre in as much as it's just a café and yet it has all this grand décor and crystal chandelier's etc. The... More

Golden taps in the ladies but no proper hygiene otherwise. Complained once and asked for the ladies to be cleaned. Staff could be more attentive. Left once after waiting for a long time for service without consuming anything, However, the cakes and ice cream are great.

Stay away. Took forever to get service. Crepes were burnt, the blackened area covered with chocolate layer. Ingredients different than listed on menu. Pizza dripping with semi melted cheese. Only thing positive about it, is that it is located at the address listed.
