Customer Reviews for Cafe Mario - Cardiff

Wonderful pasta - review added on Sun 13th Jun 2004

This is Cardiff's best-kept secret. A lovely little restaurant which features freshly-cooked pasta. I tried a spaghetti carbonara, which was served in the traditional Roman style, with egg and bacon and just a dash of cream. It was very rich and filling. My partner had penne a la contadina, which was spicy and delicious. The owner, Mario, was genuinely welcoming, and gave the place an authentic Italian atmosphere.
