"Odd place, desperately in need of a renovation. Decent food, but service that has all the quirks of a family-run place with little of the charm.
This entire strip of "old Arlington" is stuck in the past and gentrification is passing it by."

"Worst place I've ever been. I'm not one to give a review of a restaurant and definitely not a bad review, but the overall experience at this place was bad. I reserved a table two weeks in advance and got there and they forgot to reserve my table. The host and the wait staff weren't on the same page as far as seating. I ordered veal and it was the fattiest piece of veal I've ever seen, and the dish I order had a clear description of not having mushrooms and when I received the food it was covered in them. The tables were too close together so when the couple next to me got up they knocked over a wine bottle in my lap, after that my appetite was gone so we paid and left very disappointed in the overall quality of this restaurant."

"We had not been to Cafe Italia in quite some time and decided to go for dinner. We were not disappointed. We had chicken Parmesan and chicken piccata that came with the house salad - both tasty. Our waiter was attentive and quick and very welcoming. The meals were reasonably priced too. As we left everyone said good bye. The restaurant has an old, and old fashioned, feel to it that we like - a little on the dark side (as in lighting not Star Wars) which we also like. Now that we have returned after several years away we will be back far more often."

"Went to Cafe Italia for a friend's birthday. Made a reservation and called when we were running a few minutes behind. The woman who answered didn't know what I was talking about and was extremely confused. That made me nervous. The lobster bisque was over salted. The bread was clearly purchased and not made. The entrees were bland.
The wine was nice and a great deal. Our waiter was fantastic!
Loved the service. Disappointed in the food."

"I used to frequent this restaurant quite a bit then the new owners were too worried about opening a second location everything went down hill from there.
We had friends coming into town requesting Italian so I decided to go back and try cafe Italia.
Oh my gosh they brought back Billy's the chef from the old owner and food is back to where it was. Javier our waiter was exceptional with his service and glad to see this little gem coming back.

"If you are looking for great Italian food, I recommend you look elsewhere. The food is okay (not bad) but nothing to write home about. The service is decent but again, nothing to write home about. That said, Café Italia is a place I'd go to again but I'm sure there are better options in the area."
