Alberto Lattuada's 1970 film Come Have Coffee with Us (Venga a Prendere il Caffè... da Noi) has many of the trappings of a silly, vulgar, throwaway sex comedy, but it has something a bit more sinister on its mind than just that... an inarguable success... the experience is worthwhile as a provocation, reminder, and example of undeniably effective aesthetic strategies...

Alberto Lattuada's 1970 Italian film, Come Have Coffee with Us, is a keen look at the defining pitfalls of middle-aged passion... Most comedies are not known for their visual sophistication but Lattuada's direction is particularly strong... The performances of all the leads are what makes this film memorable and a delight to watch. --Film Monthly
All in all, this is a smarter and more poignant sex comedy than you might expect it to be and an interesting statement on the social excess of Italys upper class. An interesting and enjoyable look at how you can sometimes have too much fun, Come Have Coffee With Us is well made, well-acted, and represented very nicely by Raros DVD release. --Rock! Shock! Pop!
