I left my hotel for a walk, in search of a salad for a late lunch that didn't cost $30. I happened upon this place and decided to get a salad to go. I ordered the Italian salad w/chicken and no tomato. I waited about 10 minutes so had time to look over the menu. I was their during the lunch food menu...it was vast, several chicken dishes, lots of pasta dishes and sandwiches. Now, to my salad. When I arrived back to my room and opened the bag I was pleasantly surprised to see a fully piece of grilled chicken breast on top of the greens. The chicken tasted great mixed in with the Romano cheese, onion and olives! The dressing was a simple oil & vinegar. It also came with a large piece of garlic bread. I don't eat bread so can't weigh in on that but it was warm and smelled yummy. I would definitely recommend!!!

Italian Cafe has excellent pizza! Everything is good. My son had pepperoni and I had very good linguini clams white and salad. We will be back! Owner is super friendly.
All the staff was cordial.

They serve bottled Guinness which is our favorite. First time we ordered the tortellini pesto, Italian salad and a calzone to go. Delicious! The pizza is large slices and filling. Working with my food allergies was not a problem. Good service. It's not a quick place to eat, but a sit and enjoy. They are fairly busy, constantly. Next day, we ordered antipasto salad, italian salad and tortellini soup. Wow that soup was filling and SO tasty! We ordered too much food both times. So the amount is large. It's a local place with regulars where a group gathered to watch a game. It wasn't rowdy, but enjoyable. The bread is fabulous! Fresh made. Vegetarian options, too.

This place is pretty popular and probably because it offers quick and cheap food. However, I did not enjoy the pizza since it was too bready and dry. The sauce was too liquid and the cheese was not tasty. Will not go back.

Stopped here for a quick bite. The food was great but the service was extremely slow. We had to track down the waitress to even pay. I would definitely try it again.
