Now This Is Something Special
From Our Editors
For more than 35 years, Cafe Italia has served Italian dishes and carefully chosen wines under its shingled rooftop. Lunch and dinner entrees include crispy personal-sized pizzas, spaghetti with house-made tomato sauce, and steamed mussels. Chefs bake all bread in-house to accompany entrees such as the signature veal osso buco dish of tender veal shanks simmered in wine sauce and autographed by the chef.
Inside the dining area, hardwood floors support tables dressed in red or white cloths, and an enclosed patio overlooking the sidewalk lets diners drink in fresh air. Live music performances including acoustic guitar and piano and saxophone duets entertain diners every Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday evening.
