Valentine’s Day. The quality of food wasn’t that good. I could tell that it was all just microwaved. Wasn’t fresh. Soup was cold. Ravioli wasn’t presentable and wasn’t good. Butter cake was too hot from being microwaved too long

Only hitch was that they were out of two consecutive meals I ordered. But they comped the third and brought me a free drink, do they handled it as best they could.

It was OK. The food was OK. Nothing was excellent. Not crowded at all. There must be a reason.

Easy to I-10 and Elliot road. Tucked away at the corner on a strip mall, it's very nicely decorated making for an inviting, comfortable. Dinner selections were diverse providing something for each of us. Service was excellent, and prices were in line with other similar restaurants. We'll definitely go there again.

We have been enjoying the wonderful food, staff and ambiance at Caffe Boa since we had our engagement party their 13 years ago. The food is always fresh and delicious with daily specials. I always go for the butter cake too as it is so rich and tasty!

Hadn't been to Cafe Boa in a long time. Went out with friends for dinner. Food was very mediocre. Also we all felt that the waiter, who was also the bartender, was hurried. Did not get the feeling that anyone really cared to make this a fun and/or memorable experience.

Have eaten at Cafe Boa several times and have never been disappointed . Casual ,intimate place with excellent pasta options. Specials appear to always include several fish options and steak. The calamari appetizer was big enough for sharing and was perfectly cooked with a delicious spicy marinara for dipping. The mushroom ravioli and the Bolognese pasta entrees were equally wonderful. Finished with the dessert special..not usually a bread pudding fan but can never go wrong with chocolate ( it was so good am reconsidering bread pudding as a dessert option). Luckily for take home boxes or would have waddled out of there! Our waiter was attentive despite being very busy.

I had the Lasagna and it was outstanding. I was told the recipe is from Southern Italy. Bravo!

None of us had been to Cafe Boa in quite awhile, and we were all disappointed in the food. Was not as good as we remembered. I used to go crazy for their shrimp bisque. This night it was just okay. Other dishes were under seasoned/bland.

I went with my wife and another couple after our friends asked us to find a place with a patio. I've eaten here before and enjoyed my meal inside but never the patio. We had a great Long Island Ice Tea at the bar while we waited for our friends. We really enjoyed dinner on the patio and it's very private and enclosed. I had the Lasagna which I highly recommend. The portion is almost big enough to split so I gave a taste to everyone at my table. Everyone thought it was fantastic and on a cool night, the patio is the place to share dinner with a few friends.

Went for dinner on Mother's Day with my husband and daughter. We opted to sit outside but almost immediately regretted the decision- the misters were spraying and dripping directly onto us from above our table and the water fountain was splashing the chair closest to it. They moved us to another table but still drippy. They finally turned the misters off when other tables also complained. Given that it was a holiday, we assumed they would be staffed accordingly. We waited over 15 minutes to even be greeted- and that was because my husband went back to the hostess stand to ask. The whole meal was unnecessarily slow- they were clearly WAY understaffed for the evening. They brought me a complimentary glass of wine to apologize for how long everything took- which was nice, but I was driving and I didn't really want to drink it. They gave me a dried out rose at the end of the night too. I would've rather see them focus on getting us a quality meal in a timely manner versus running around handing out flowers. We've dined here before and enjoyed it, but this makes us question if we'd go back. Other tables around us flat out left because their meals were taking so long- but we didn't really have the luxury of waiting for a table somewhere else because we had our kiddo with us. Overall it spoiled the specialness of the day for me.

I'm a new resident, having lived here several years ago, and was delighted to know that caffé boa was still in operation. It was Mother's Day and I met my daughter for dinner and we had a lovely time , food was wonderful as always and we were each presented w a rose upon leaving.

Mother's Day and the kitchen was short staffed. Reservation was at 12:45 and yet we didn't get our food until after 2:00 PM. One other time that we went to Caffe Boa, a similar thing happened. There were many upset diners last Sunday. We had to miss the movie that we planned on seeing. they need to figure out their staffing issues. The crew working was working hard and trying their best, but they were put into a bad situation.
