Great local restaurant. Go there a few times and Dino knows your name, the waiters are energized, food is hard to beat and the price is right plus BYOB makes it a very affordable place to go for an enjoyable meal/experience. It was an overnight success when it opened years ago and is going just as strong today. Making reservations... More

We moved from NY to TX and Cafe Italia is as close as we can get to the old-school, family Italian food we love. We eat here a lot, sometimes just as a family and other times we come with two or three families together. Small dining room so it can get a little loud but we're usually the ones... More

Cafe Italia is a smallish restaurant in a strip shopping center. Just looking from the outside, you might think spaghetti, pizza, etc. But this place has really, really good food. I had Shrimp Scampi and it was excellent. Others around the table reported their entrees were very well done. The atmosphere was calm, quiet, and nice in every way. Service... More

The vodka sauce is outstanding. The steak is even better and a great price. The wait staff is attentive and ready to make your order personalized. And it is BYOB - so lots of people stop off at Grapevine Beer and Wine or Tom Thumb (great wine selection) or Kroger (another great wine selection) to being beer or wine in... More

Tasty fresh food, prompt and professional service & love the BYOWine. The bread and stuffed mushroom appy make it hard to find enough room for the main course some visits! Many memories made here ... it's the kind of place that draws us back again and again.

I voted this place the best Italian food anywhere near Grapevine. It's a little tricky because there are two Cafe Italia's in Grapevine not associated with each other. The real Cafe Italia in Grapevine is on Hwy 26 or Ira E. Woods I've eaten at both locations multiple times, and it's hands down Ira E. Woods (Hwy 26) location that... More

The place is small, but always packed. The food is unbelievable and the service is even better! It is run by a father/son duo, and they personally make sure your needs are met! BYOB is also an awesome plus!

My family and I dined here for the first time Thursday evening for my brother's birthday. The overall experience was fantastic. We were immediately seated as we received a warm welcome from every staff member. The service was quick and attentive. I ordered the delicious chicken rollatini special. Nick, the manager, finished off our night with an impressive magic show... More
