With beautiful bistro-style decor and elegant Italian murals, Stefano’s Ristorante Italiano offers a slice of the Mediterranean in Cardiff. Stefano's was named best Italian in the South Wales Food & Drink Awards 2012/13.

In this quaint family-run eatery, the Stefano’s menu serves sumptuously fresh ingredients for an authentic taste of Italy. Delicate antipasti options include classic bruschetta, and duck pâté with pistachio, served with an orange and onion relish and toasted focaccia. A range of pizzas and pasta dishes include vegetarian varieties, and hearty mains like sea-salt cured pork or duck in an orange liqueur sauce combine bold flavours.

A children’s menu is available, and Stefano’s Ristorante Cardiff take pride in their homemade desserts like tiramisu. The wine cellar contains a wealthy stock of wonderfully complementing international bottles.

Housed in the lively Pontcanna area, Stefano’s restaurant offers classic Mediterranean hospitality, with a heated patio perfect for al fresco dining. Cardiff City Centre is a 5-minute taxi ride away.

    I love this restaurant. It is not run-of-the mill Italian fare. They include regional cooking and new culinary experiences. The service is always excellent, the décor is fun, the acoustics are good, and they don't cram the tables in - it is spacious and comfortable.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Stefano's. On arrival we had a warm welcome and special focus on our 6 year old daughter in line with traditional Italian style family warmth! The food was exceptional, the most authentic we have had outside of Italy, simple, not messed around with, using good quality produce. The dining experience is one that we wish to re-visit again very soon. Thank you Stefano's for a great evening of true Italian dining.

    My fiancée and I ate there on Valentines evening so they had a more restricted menu priced at £40 for 3 courses and coffee, the restaurant is only a few minutes away by taxi and the décor is pleasant. Although restricted compared to the full menu there was still a good range of choices including sea bass and fillet steak for mains, the tiramisu that was classic and on point. I went for the steak which was cooked perfectly, although not on the valentines menu they still made a pizza for my fiancée which was greatly appreciated. However, the panna cotta in my opinion was a little too firm / chewy for my liking although the taste was very good. The service was very friendly, attentive and efficient, if it was possible I would give the overall experience 4.5 out of 5 stars, The flavours were good and it was cooked well and very generous portions. However the evening just lacked a little finesse that you expect with the prices for me to give it 5 stars overall.
