Cafe Citta is one of Cardiff's little gems. The food is excellent and interesting and it's good value. It's very popular these days so it's worth trying to get a booking.

Tiny restaurant with massive amounts of character. Booking is essential but worth it. Friendly staff. The other diners all seemed to be returning regular customers which can only suggest this is a great find.

Had a lovely meal at Cafe Citta last night with my mum and son. Restaurant is tiny, but has a lovely relaxed atmosphere. The menu is basically pizza and pasta, but every dish tastes as though it is freshly made with care. Definitely worth a visit. Booking essential.

I took my Mum and Dad for lunch at Cafe Citta one Saturday after reading the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food was delicious, from the pea fritter starters to the excellent choice of pasta main courses and the lovely ice-cream we had for dessert. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive and explained... More

Small and 'Cosy' eatery in central Cardiff. Food homemade and fresh. Dishes vary on each visit as made by different chefs. Generally very good, service friendly and you're lucky to get a table at peak times if you haven't booked. A pleasant change from the plethora of chains in the city. Real food with the associated idiosyncrasies and charm.

A beautiful little restaurant that services authentic Italian food. We've been a number of times and every time there has been friendly staff, homely atmosphere and excellent food. Can't recommend enough!

We went on recommendation and were not disappointed. The staff are friendly and helpful, the food is authentic and wholesome and the atmosphere is cosy and intimate . It is a great find in the middle of a city where there too many impersonal chains of restaurants
