Caffe Italiano Ristorante
The food and service was excellent. Staff was personable, professional and efficient. I definitely plan on coming back.
The service was excellent and the food was exceptional.
Sergio and staff are welcoming and treat patrons like family. His very friendly sisters are visiting from Italy and help prepare delicious food. Portions are huge!! You will order dinner (delicious pasta, meats, fish, vegetables, homemade bread) and have lunch for the next day. We love going to dinner here. 5 stars!! You should check this place out and say Caio to Sergio and staff!
We love Caffe Italiano! We have many great meals there and shared this neighborhood gem with my mother, and 4 different sets of friends over the past year. Our New Year’s Eve 2022 dinner was great! Clams in a garlic white wine butter sauce, Burrata with prosciutto , salad with Gorgonzola, Braised Lamb Shank and Crème Carmel with a Cappuccino for dessert. The service and friendly atmosphere are as great as the food. A Fair Oaks must!
What a lovely place. The service, food, ambience, everything!
This is my new favorite spot to eat!
My new favorite dinner restaurant! A hidden gem!!
Great food at reasonable prices and good service. Wish they had a full bar.
All of the food was very tasty. However, it did bother us that our bread/antipasto plate was not removed before our soup was served. The forks and dirty plates were left. We should have been given a new bread plate. We ordered the antipasto plate, soup and then our entree. We were not given a special plate for the antipasto forcing us to use our bread plate. We also ordered the cannoli to share. This came out on one plate and we were not given a second plate to put the second cannoli on. It was a bit messy.
Excellent food prepared by staff and Owned by a true Italian from Florence. The pasta dishes are hand made, best Lamb & wild bore shanks anywhere
First time here. Excellent food. There were six of us, and I sampled everything! Great service. Quite a gem hidden in Fair Oaks.
This is a fabulous restaurant in Fair Oaks. Definitely a neighborhood gem. The food is delicious and well prepared, with attention to every detail. Service is outstanding. You never feel rushed. Reservations are a must if you want to eat between 5:30 and 7:00.
It’s my opinion that Cafe Italiano is the best Italian restaurant in the Sacramento region.
It is great to have a neighborhood restaurant of this caliber. I hope eggplant parmegiana will be on the menu soon.
My sister and I both had the Lamb shanks and they were wonderful. The waiter was very pleasant.
If you love veal, this is the place to go. They usually have three or four veal dishes to choose from and all at a very reasonable price. Portions are large, so my wife and I usually split a small salad and then follow with an entree. The desserts look very nice but we are usually too full to order anything else. This is a small, family-owned restaurant that always seems to be busy with a strong neighborhood following. Tuesday is "free corkage night" here which helps compensate for the limited list of wines by the glass. We've found that service is always prompt and professional but with a personal touch.
My wife and I wanted to try something new. Found Caffe Italiano Ristorante and took the chance. So glad we did. Staff was incredibly friendly and informative. Being that I couldn’t really decide, the waitress made some recommendations for an appetizer that I normally wouldn’t order (Prosciutto and Melon) and it was spot on. Don’t forget to save room for desert. We’ll definitely be back and take others there as well.
Fantastic authentic Italian cuisine and service. Wonderful place with incredible staff and food.
Friendly and helpful staff. Great wine and food. Will return.
Always a great experience. We love the family feel at this restaurant
Caffe Italiano is one of my family's favorite restaurants! The food is excellent, portion sizes large and the waitstaff and receptionist are exceptional.
Lots of energy from customers of every type. It's fun to be there.
The owners quickly come to know you and show they are glad to see you.
Highly recommend this place for casual dining.
Classics done perfectly to please our palates and ready us for the wonderful desserts! A Neighborhood Gem!
This is a great little Italian spot! We were pleasantly surprised, from the outside it appears to be a simple shopping mall restaurant but the food and service are top notch. Something about the red-sauce with the Lasagna was to die for, and many seasonal specials to brag about. We will be back!
Husband absolutely loved the wild boar and my lobster ravioli was perfect. From the time we entered to the time we left was above and beyond. Already planning our next visit until we try everything on the menu!
This place never disappoints! Service and food is always spot on!
Celebrating my sister’s first paycheck at her new job 🥰
Lovely experience. Ask for Fernando.
Authentic Florentine food. Owner, Sergio, is a gem. Osso bucco so tender it falls off the bone. Limoncello to top off the dinner is a welcome treat.
I'm an Italian born, Caffe Italiano is the most authentic Italian food that I've ever had anywhere in California.
This is a great little spot, tucked away in a strip mall at the corner of Fair Oaks Blvd and Madison in Fair Oaks.
They've been open for 3 years, but this was my wife and my first time there, our 41st Anniversary. Great service, great ambiance, great Italian food. We definitely will go back soon to try something else on their very extensive menu.
Love Love Love this place. Most authentic Italian food around Fair Oaks. A must if you get a chance.
Good experience. Wait staff pleasant and knowledgeable.
Food very good.
Great food, extremely friendly staff, Sergio the owner is very hands on; he makes sure his diners are happy and satisfied. Probably one of the best Italian restaurant in the Sacramento area
We go there every other month with our friends. Always enjoy it.
Food and service, outstanding. Bring a appetite, very generous on portions. Very good selection of wines. Thank you.
First time visit…..we’ll definitely go back again!
The food was outstanding but, the outdoor seating is on a very small front porch next to the parking lot and on the corner of Fair Oaks and Madison so I would recommend indoor seating. Loved the lemoncello as a free after dinner drink!
Good Italian restaurant… A neighborhood gem…
Classic Italian in a welcoming environment. Well be back.
This is the third time I take friends to Caffè Italiano. Each time the service has been impeccable, the food excellent and the ambience pleasant.
We ordered the prosciutto with melon as an appetizer and it was delicious. The salad was fresh and the entrees excellent. To top it all, we were offered generous servings of limoncello to accompany the desert.
We all enjoyed our dinner and, for sure, we will be back.
Great food and service Great value
Daily wine specials a good deal
