A new Italian café has opened its doors in Wallingford to the community and visitors from far and wide.

900 Café, in St Mary’s Street, is run by husband and wife duo Andrea and Gabriel Matei, who wished to bring a taste of Italy to the town.

Andrea hails from Italy and Gabriel lived there for over ten years.

Gabriel said: “It’s all going really well. I’ve worked in this industry, in coffee shops and restaurants.

“We wanted to bring something new to this lovely town. It’s such a great community here in Wallingford.

“We have extra seating and a children’s play area upstairs too which we’re looking to improve further.”

The new venue replaces Ribizli Café, a vegan establishment which closed its doors just before Christmas last year after seven years in the town centre.
