Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 April 2018

6 people from my 55+ community went to The Cafe Italia for a Birthday celebration. ALL 6 people found their meal distasteful. The Veal was tough. The sauces Not so good. Before our meal, Bread and Olive oil were served. The bread would have been nice if it was a little warmed up. It ALSO had pepper flake in the oil. It would have been better to bring Warm Bread and TWO olive oils. One just plain. One with the Pepper flakes. How hard would that be ?? All 6 of us did not finish our meal and plan to never return. All said the veal was Tough and chewy.
Word of mouth can be a GOOD or Bad thing. Sorry Cafe Italia you failed us.

We sat on the patio of this nice little bistro. The waitress was with us very quickly and was very knowledgeable regarding her restaurant's menu. She quickly brought out some fresh baked bread and oil mixed with some spices.

I went with the seafood pasta dish, which was amazing. The pasta seemed homemade and the dish itself was filled with different types of fresh seafood. The sauce was wonderful, and also seemed fresh made.

I was very pleased with this dish, the service, and the quaint seating arrangements. We will definitely be back.

Went for dinner with a group and had a great meal. Nice patio atmosphere, and the food was plentiful and reasonably priced. I had one of the chicken entrees, and others in our group had veal, gnocchi or the daily special. Dinners came with a salad, and the salads were also very good.

We were looking for a nice Italian restaurant in Summerville and were disappointed with this meal. Our neighbor was complaining about the veal but we did simple lasagna and fish. Both were below average quality and the meal was quite expensive for meal with very basic salads

This restaurant is the real deal. Homemade sauces, top ingredients and old world recipies. Casual atmosphere, great service and a well thought out Italian wine list. The owner is gracious and helpful. A must go in Summerville!
