I went here after it was recommended to me from a colleague. I wasn't disappointed ! The greeting was cold and the staff didn't sell the establishment for me, but the food and my company. It was unfortunate that the lights were on, no dimmed light, that was such a shame. But I would still return simply in the hope... More

An intimate ambiance with authentic cooking. My favourite pizza was not on the menu but on my request the chef produced it and it was delicious! Service was excellent and you will need to book in advance as it's very popular. I will definitely be returning.

This a absolute diamond of a cafe / restaurant tucked away on the side street. I've tried a number of times to go back, it's so popular you realy have to book if going with friends.

I would go back once a month if it wasn't booked up so often! Everything from the atmosphere, food, and cosiness is brilliant!

Could be my favourite restaurant in cardiff. It's charmingly decorated, intimate - yes a little squishy but it's all part of it's rustic charm. The friendly atmosphere and the tasty Italian food is quality. If I'm hungry when in town I always check there's space at cafe Citta. It would be amazing if they could open another in another part...

Vistited lunchtime recently. As usual service good and food excellent. Let down by poor toilets. Gents had not been cleaned for days! No toilet paper, no soap and no paper towels or dryer. My wife refuses to eat at restaurant due to state of women's toilets. Must do better to deserve Trip Advisor placings.

Hello Howell2014 Apologies that you found the toilets in such a state. Glad you enjoyed our food and service. Unfortunately we share the loos with two businesses upstairs although we take responsibility for stocking them and cleaning them when we are open. Our last job before closing before New Year was to clean them. When you visited we had just... More

Had a lovely meal here with my wife. It's a cosy, traditional, authentic Italian with lovely, tasty, hearty food. The restaurant is small and like a traditional family run restaurant. The Pizzas were tasty and filling and throughly recommended. It's possibly not the most romantic restaurant in terms of setting, but is still highly recommended.

For all you foodies Cafe Citta is definitely worth a visit, great Italian food, good service & you will need to book. It's a very compact & cosy restaurant ideal for couples & small groups. The toilets are upstairs, not sure if they provide a toilet on the ground floor.
