Diner Reviews
  • "The service was a little slow for the restaurant not being very busy, however the Alfredo was yummy."

  • "Too bad we were just visiting and leaving town the next day because I would have taken a doggie bag of the excellent leftover pasta on my plate. I had the fettuccine plate, Emma Rosa, which was wonderful. It wasn't like the fettuccine I was used to, the noodles were these nice fat, silky beautiful things that held the sauce (a non-boozy version of vodka sauce) and were perfect. My partner had the chicken marsala, he was less pleased as the sauce was a little thin for his tastes. If I found myself in Charlottesville again, I would definitely return here."

  • "Sal's Caffe Italia has become a family favorite. Everything we've ever gotten there has been delicious! The service is friendly and you don't have to wait long for your food. We've begun bringing friends and family from out of town and they all love it too!"

  • "It was a lovely evening. The food was good. The restaurant was small and cozy, wonderful on a chilly fall evening. The wait staff was very nice. It was a great pick coming from out of time. Thank you Open Table!"

  • "Took my entire family to dine here after a football game. Menu had a lot of great options, appealing to everyone in the family from our 5 year old to Mom and Dad. We enjoyed the Rosa flatbread starter and then had a number of different and delicious pasta dishes that we all shared.We sat outside and enjoyed cool fresh Charlottesville air. The location is great too right on the downtown mall."
