A unique dining experience at Cafe Italia. The food was good, reasonably priced and you can BYOB at a reasonable corkage fee. The best part was the entertainment. Every 20 minutes the wait staff broke into song ranging from Broadway hits to opera. Most enjoyable!

We found cafe italia online at yelp. The restaurant was not busy, but we had fantastic Italian dinners, get ambiance, tastefully decorated, and the bonus was the live singing. I'd highly recommend and would go back. Great for families or a quaint relaxing dinner.
