This is my favorite Italian restaurant period! I live in NY and whenever I find myself in MA I have to make a trip here! The food is fresh, the flavor is perfect and the portions are generous! It's literally eating Italian food from an Italian grandma without the grandma!

Went for the first time last week. Exceptional. Great service, nice atmosphere and some of the best Italian food I've had south of Boston. Better than anything on Federal Hill in Providence. Hands down! One of the best veal parms I've had. And great clams casino app. Will absolutely go back

FANTASTIC authentic Italian food. Why drive to Boston's north end or to Federal Hill when you have Cafe' Italia right here on the south coast? Every time we've eaten here it's been spot on and the service is just as outstanding as the food.

We have been to Café Italia seven times in the last year as recent as 8/10. Each time has been a great experience. The food is absolutely delicious, the service is great and the staff is wonderful. Not a huge place, but that's what make it great, it's cozy and quaint. I highly recommend this restaurant if you like delicious authentic Italian food.

The best Italian spot in New Bedford. Comfortable, intimate atmosphere, BYOB, what more could one ask for? The chicken parmesan is magnificent and pasta is made in house. Try the calamari

Fantastic family run Italian restaurant in New Bedford. The Bolognese was easily on par with Hanover and Federal Hill.

Amazing, authentic Italian! The food and service were both excellent. You can also bring in your own wine. We had the spaghetti and meatball and the chicken piccata both of which were great. Some of the best marinara I've had

Best craft Italian in New Bedford. It's homey and BYOB. I recommend making a reservation, as they're very good to those who do so

One of our favorite places for a nice dinner. The food is always fresh & delicious. No liquor license, but you can bring your own bottle of wine. They will supply glasses. Service is always good

We LOVE Cafe Italia and give it five stars for five reasons: Firstly, Carol, our server, rocks! She is a total pro and always makes us feel welcome, like a happy family. The food is superior each time. The ambience is warm, romantic and inviting. The location is convenient for us (easy to park too) and BYOB for extra ease on the wallet.
We HIGHLY recommend it. (PS. Try the Veal Marsala and homemade pistachio cake.)

My husband and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary at Cafe Italia and Chef Nick and Cindy made sure it was a most romantic evening! When arrived there were flowers with a balloon, a card and wine at our table and the meal we were served was of course, SUPERB! Thanks to both of them for making our celebration so special!"

Omg. The atmosphere was amazing, our waitress Carol was absolutely warming, inviting, attentive, checked on us at the right moments, not with our mouths filled. She was great, the food was amazing!!
