We have seen this restaurant around for many years but made our first trip this past weekend. I am not sure what we were waiting for as this was such a pleasant surprise! All the dishes we tried were well prepared and delicious. Cafe Italia also prepares Penne a la Vodka in my favorite way – by flambe! When you flambe the sauce, it adds a nice smokey flavor to the sauce. Very few restaurants make it this way and this is the second one in South Florida that I have found that will use this method. The lasagna appears to have been made with fresh pasta which creates a lovely texture to the dish. One thing to note, we purchased the lasagna dish to split for our kids (7 and 10). The staff was kind enough to split it for us before they brought it out.
I am truly impressed that Cafe Italia has been in business for 20+ years! Unfortunately, many restaurants loose their focus on quality but I do not think this is the case for this restaurant. We look forward to making Cafe Italia as one of our go-to places for excellent Italian food!
You can’t find places like this. Old school restaurant where you listen Frank Sinatra, eat authentic delicious Italian food with great service. My favorite!

This restaurant is amazing. The food is just perfect. The owner is there with you while you dine and is very friendly. He’s been running restaurants for longer than I’ve been alive.

My husband said the chicken marsala was the best he’s ever had! The marinara sauce was delicious.
We were looking for a highly rated restaurant for dinner before our first time at The Parker Playhouse. The reviews for Cafe Italia were outstanding and the menu had vegans options (for me).
From the olives and cheese given as soon as we were seated; then the most exquisite warm rustic bread and all that we ordered, it was one of the bests meals-ever!!
The chef came out and asked us how we enjoyed our meal.
If you want authentic Italian food in an unpretentious setting, Cafe Italia is a sure thing!
