Fantastic little find - a real gem. Only called for a coffee but had a piece of exquisite cheesecake. After reading the menu will definitely be back to try the mains and will definitely spread the word.

Definitely a regular hangout for me. Proper Italian food! A consistently good place to eat if you're anywhere near Abbeydale Road in a no nonsense unpretentious setting. Family friendly too.

About us

Urban-Ita is an independent Italian coffee shop and eatery in the heart of Abbeydale Road, Sheffield, located in the old Bardwell's shop.  

Urban-Ita is the latest venture of husband and wife team Saverio and Lorraine. Saverio is from Sorrento on the Amalfi Coast and Lorraine is from Sheffield. Both are passionate about Italy, especially Southern Italian cuisine. 

At Urban-Ita we serve a wide range of teas, coffees and soft drinks. Our cakes and desserts are homemade or from local independent bakers. Pearl Bakery and Miss Adu’s Kitchen supply our vegan, dairy/gluten-free sweet treats. Our menus have a range of English and Italian dishes and include healthy options, gluten-free, dairy-free, plant-based cuisine as well as seasonal specials. Saverio ensures that the ingredients are the freshest and best available. We use local and organic produce where possible and some of it even comes from our garden. Our focaccia and flatbread are baked on the premises.  

We don't have an alcohol licence but you are welcome to BYO for a small corkage fee. 

We try to be as environmentally friendly as possible so we don't stock drinks in plastic bottles. Please feel free to bring your own cup if you want your coffee to take-away. 

We recycle what we can and our electricity supplier assures us that it is from 100% sustainable sources. 

We have a small deli and bookshop where you can buy a range of products including reusable bamboo cups and products from local suppliers and makers, plus our own herb infused oils. In our ‘Little Book Shop’ we have Lorraine’s Being Me Diary as well as a range of second-hand books that can be purchased or perused.  

Works of art in the café are thanks to local artists, Illustrations by Molly and Stephanie Briggs  We hope you enjoy your visit to Urban-Ita. 

Urban-Ita is available to hire Wednesday to Saturday evenings for private parties, celebrations, meetings and events. Please ask for details.
