Ristorante A CA MIA is open every April and closes at the end of Fall.

We are located across from the Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic Church on the Washington Street Mall. We are available for Private Parties, Rehearsal Dinners, and Christmas Parties.

The historical building that now houses Ristorante A CA MIA was built in 1872. William Essen operated a bakery and ice cream parlor until 1914 when he sold it to his niece and her husband, Carl and Margaret Kokes. The business remained in his family for over 60 Years. The bakery is one of the oldest bakeries in continuous operation in the country. By the mid 1930s, the ice cream parlor had become the dining room and the business was operated as a restaurant as it is to this day. Our kitchen is under the direction of Chef Todor Videv. We are available for private parties. We offer early seating dinner selections. We accommodate well behaved children.

    The food, the service, and the warm welcome that we always receive from Nina make this restaurant one of our favorites. Everyone at our table had different entree. Our friends had the vegetable lasagna and the spaghetti with bolognese sauce, I had the Tortalini special and my husband had the chicken Parmesan. We were all pleased. We ate outside to enjoy the beautiful evening.

    Very enjoyable overall. We sat outside to people watch Washington St. Server was a bit aloof. His English wasn’t great. Felt like he had a job but not a love for it. The lasagna was unique and very delicious. The meatball spaghetti also very good. Will definitely return.

    We were looking forward to our first time. Food was average at best. Said it was fresh homemade pasta. Definitely was not. I had meatballs and my husband had chicken parmigiana. Both were average. We had made a reservation yet got worst table inside in back corner. Took several requests to finally be moved. Not a good start to our evening. I think it’s just an ok restaurant and will so many amazing restaurants in Cape May we will let this be a one and done at this restaurant. Was really hoping to have great Italian food.

    We were 4 adults ,1 toddler and a 2 month old We went early5:30. The staff was awesome. food excellent it looked to me like they have only raised their prices about $2.00 an entree throughout the past few years. fWe sat outside they brought a high chair and positioned the table so that we could get the baby stroller in next to the table . Promptly brought out the bread and butter and toddler entree . We had a lovely dinner with our son/dil and grandkids. The place was filling up as we left. About 7pm.
