When you are on vacation, you’ll do just about anything to find the right restaurant (TripAdvisor reviews included!). So when a big guy named Vince who’s next to you in line at Barnes and Noble hears you talking about dinner plans, and says I “couldn’t help overhearing you, I’m a private chef, and you should really try Cafe Italia”, you decide to give it a go. He even told us where to pick up a bottle of wine as you can BYOB for a $10 corking fee.

So we did. And we were every so glad! You know you are in the right place when local after local stops in, hugs the owner, and gets a table. And the sole waitress, Andrea sucks it up and cheerily serves the whole room without a glitch (we dined after our movie so we in no hurry). After sharing a wonderful risotto porcini pasta course, I dove into the snapper signature dish and my wife the swordfish – the sauces were superb. We had just room to share a limoncello parfait with our (fairly priced) cappucinos.


We were greeted by Owner at the door and seated quickly , table for 4. Waitress came shortly and took our order , got a great bottle of wine for under 30 , bread was hot and fresh , service was great and our meals were so delicious , I had risotto and my wife had snapper and pasta both very good , the owner Francesco walks around and makes small talk and assures all is well , great meal!!!
