A lot of cafes say they serve the best coffee in town but this one really does.
Owned by Antonio a fantastic host the food is also special.
A limited choice but all prepared fresh daily.
A first port of call for Italians visiting the city and a growing band of regular customers it's a class and much loved place to meet in the city.

A lovely little Mexican restaurant has just opened up at the bottom of my Nan's road. I took my girlfriend there last Friday and we had a great time. The atmosphere was really nice and relaxed and the food was absolutely brilliant, I never knew chilli con carne could be so sexy.
An amazing bar and restaurant off Duke Street in Liverpool city centre, it's a former Victorian jail which makes for a very unusual setting to eat.
Despite its former use, the venue is incredibly stylish and cosy and you can still eat in the cells as well as in an elegant dining area upstairs where's there's also a champagne lounge. Food is fab and service is very good. Also very reasonably priced especially with the set meal on a weekday.
Campbell Square off Duke Street, Liverpool 0151 709 4195. Nearest train station is Liverpool Central. The restaurant can be walked to from the city centre along Hanover Street walking towards the Albert Dock. Perfect if you're going for a gig at the Arena!
Savina is a modern Mexican restaurant in Liverpool city centre. Visited here a couple of times over the last year and it's lovely. Visited again this weekend, was very busy and the service was still very good.
The staff are lovely and food is really nice. I had the Alambre De Pollo, a chicken kebab with some pepper jam type sauce on, it was fantastic and my friends also enjoyed their foods as well. Visit Alma De Cuba afterwards and you will have a memorable trip to Liverpool.
We have booked again for our summer trip to Liverpool. We have even booked again when we come and see Boyzone at the new arena. I would strongly recommend Savina.

The most amazing Indian food I have ever tasted in modern chic surroundings, it's just a couple of minutes' walk from Bold Street. Definitely try the Paneer Makhani - diced cottage cheese simmered in creamy tomato sauce with just a touch of honey.
Also fab is the Patrani Sea Bass which is steamed with coconut, sesame, coriander and mint and enveloped in banana leaf. The lunch menu is very tasty with a choice of nine dishes all very reasonably priced. Finish it off with a fruit sorbet which is divine! I love it so much here I actually ate both my lunch and dinner there last week!

This is a great cafe on Rodney Street in central Liverpool, not far from Liverpool Lime Street. They serve a wide range of food; from light lunches to amazing cakes.
I recommend it for convenience, price, atmosphere and generally being a really nice place to hang out for the day.
They have great fresh coffee, the beans are apparently imported from Portugal. After an hour drinking coffee and some delicious 'chocolate salami' we decided to have lunch. The menu had a fantastic selection, all at incredibly reasonable prices, including some Portuguese dishes as well as the old favourites like salads, sandwiches and paninis. I wanted something light so went for the roast vegetable bruschetta, my friend went for the cod fishcakes. Both were excellent and cost around £4.
Cafe Porto is at 14 Rodney Street; telephone number 0151 708 5276, open Monday to Saturday. The nearest station is Liverpool Lime Street.
A music venue in the popular drinking area that is Concert Square. Go past all the awful chain bars and two-for-one drinking venues and escape to Korova just up Fleet Street. Wicked venue, illustrations and graphics cover the walls and there are booths in the bar to relax in. During the day there's good food and drink, of an evening you can catch a band or go to one of the club nights. Usually has something going on most evenings.

A cosy little cafe in the heart of the city. A great place to go for lunch if you enjoy veggie and vegan cuisine. Very friendly staff, freshly cooked everything and all very cheap! If you are lucky you may even meet their resident harpist.
Just off Renshaw Street, behind Stanley Casino.
Great food and a lively atmosphere! Billed as Pan-Asian, it offers a range of Japanese, Chinese and Thai food, with my personal favourite being the crispy chilli beef.
The interior is amazing; a huge, bright and modern feel to it. Very chic and relaxed! The music is something worth popping in for too. DJs keep the bar lively, playing everything from house to funk and disco. As far as city centre venues go this one gets my vote.

Circo just opened on the Albert Dock- it's a bar and restaurant with a really eccentric circus/freakshow theme - they have life-sized horse lamps and trapeze!
You can hire the private dining room for a night of karaoke- lots of fun! Try the Candyfloss Martini at the bar too...
Albert Dock, Liverpool
Giant dragons dancing in the street, eating lettuces and followed by loud drums and even louder firecrackers. A funfair, street food and families just out for a days' fun. All in a compact, interesting and friendly area.
In the city centre, go up Bold Street (where the WAGs shop) and follow the crowds. It's in February.
Best views of Liverpool are from Wirral. Try New Brighton as a starting point then carry on round the coast to Hoylake/West Kirby (plenty of food choices here) then up to Parkgate for great ice cream or fish and chips.
Don't forget to call in at Thursaston, near West Kirby, for Churches Organic farm shop and walks on Thursaston common.
Albert Dock is the heart and soul of Liverpool's waterfront, with so many cool bars and restaurants, PanAm, Blue, Est Est Est and Baby Cream. New places to eat like Vinea and Circo add to the already vibrant places to eat.
Tate Liverpool, the Site Gallery and many smaller art galleries offer the perfect mix of culture, right next door to the new Arena & Convention Centre. Now the famous Duck Tour and Shiverpool tours are great fun for a day out.
Albert Dock has seen Liverpool grow up in the last 20 years and will remain my favourite place to hang out on a sunny day on the quayside.
New building hosting the popular chain Malmaison, nice comfortable rooms and bar with brasserie attached. Down at the Princess Dock opposite the Liver Building.

Liverpool Lime Street 10 minutes' walk away.
This is an Indian restaurant with a very different menu from the norm. The cooking is assured and the sauces all different - no basic curry sauce for every meal here. Highly recommended.
Lark Lane is a road next to Sefton Park in south Liverpool, which is worth a visit for an evening or a summer afternoon. There are lots of independent shops, pubs and bars, and restaurants which serve food from Thailand through to Turkey. Have a picnic in the park, then call into Keiths wine bar for a glass of wine and people watching.
The Ziba is a restaurant based in the boutique hotel at the Racquet Club. It is not as widely reviewed as some of the other restaurants for fine dining in Liverpool but has been serving excellent food for many years.
It's located in a beautiful building in the central business district, and is a must for a special night out.
