This is a really lovely place to eat a relaxing multi-course Italian pizza dinner. Clean and modern, with ample indoor and outdoor seating. Wonderful staff that are quite attentive, but not intrusive.
The pace at which each course was brought out was just right. They have a nice sized menu that gives plenty of options without it taking you a half-hour to look everything over. Though a cafe during the day, Caffè Marconi is a pizzeria at night. There is a decent wine selection, but beer lovers may feel rather limited by the 3 beers available. Only one of which is draft.
Only one thing to say about the food itself: delicious! And a great value too. Our full three course meal for two, with drinks, and coffee with dessert came out well under £50.
This place, unlike so many Italian restaurants I've been to in the UK, actually feels very Italian... not just a British take on what Italian is.
This caffè/pizzeria is associated with Sasso, a formal Italian restaurant just a few doors down.
Great place! Highly recommended!
Set on the corner of Princes Square, down some steps is Caffe Marconi, a bright and modern cafe, and restaurant. The wonderful sight and smell of food, both savoury and sweet greets you as you enter, as do the smiles of the enthusiastic staff. Tables of various sizes and shapes, mean that all sizes of party can be catered for; there is also quite a sizeable area of outdoor seating, perfect for the summer. We managed to grab the last one on offer; as we had only just arrived in Harrogate, we really just wanted a snack, but the pizzas going past us on slate boards looked very tempting. We opted for a cappuccino and an americano, both served in a mug, and even came with a small plate to rest the teaspoon, a nice touch. The coffee was strong and flavoursome, and a good accompaniment for the food. We also ordered a Contadino sandwich: a warm sandwich with smoked chicken, olives, marinated vegetables, including artichoke, all dressed with basil mayonnaise, a wonderfully tasty sandwich, just right. I would have liked it with an accompanying salad though, it looked a bit sparse on the plate. Only a minor point though, the cappuccino cream filled pastry we had as a treat to finish the meal, was lovely.
I came into this cafe on a lunchtime and it wasn't all that busy but all of the tables had dirty plates and cups strewn over them. For an establishment that obviously tries to cater for more affluent customers, the place was dirty and the staff pretentious. The blonde woman behind the counter checked her hair was ok about 20 times whilst staring into the dirty surroundings. For an overpriced coffee, I'd expect not to sit on the previous customers mess and have service to rival Bettys further down the road but not here. Thoroughly disappointing.
