Food was tasteless, the server was great though. Didn't know is was possible to make Italian food with so little flavor.

I was attracted to Cafe Italia by the warm glow of its neon sign on Montana Avenue--right in the heart of Billings' historic district and wasn't disappointed. Everything was as it presented itself to be. But the nicest surprise of all were the gluten free options for both pizza and pasta. It was a few dollars more, but just having... More

For the food my wife ordered a sangria that was house made and delicious. My kids ordered fettuccine Alfredo that was made from scratch with a great... More

It seemed to be a slow night when we got there. We were a group of 3 and waiting for the everyone to arrive was not unpleasant. The waitress was social and music was soft. We ordered an appetizer of meatball sliders. They were great. Then came our food. Between us we had a variety of sauces and meats and... More

We were driving around trying to find a place for dinner. We didn't want to go to any place we could go to at home (Cracker Barrel, Carinas, etc.). We drove into "historic Billings" and saw a number of places and this one tickled our fancy. It has several outdoor tables and about 10-15 tables & booths inside. It is... More

We went for a walk downtown Billings and wandered into Cafe Italia. We were greeted right away. Our waitress made excellent dining and drink suggestions. Kids enjoyed their Italian sodas and homemade peanut butter gelato. We were treated like family, Italian style!

Thank Armymo
