No Out-Door dining. STAY SAFE!
The LA CAVA concept is based on Armando's roots. Born and raised in Florence, he grew up learning that as a local, one would go dining in the little Osterias where everything was made fresh daily, prepared with basic ingredients, simple recipes, delightful flavors and lots of love, for a fantastic experience that was also "gentle" on your wallet.

Best Italian experience and food in Sherman oaks. Outstanding friendly service. Been going there for many years!
Always wonderful food and service. Gnocchi is amazing.
First time dining at La Cava was excellent in all regards. We will return.
I had salmon, mushrooms and spinach. I’m fussy about salmon. It was delicious
Service was awesome. A bit yo noisy for me.
We had a Kale salad that was very good and filet of sole with capers that was excellent. The tart was also quite good. We had a 2018 Girard Chardonnay that was good and reasonably priced. La Cava has a relatively short but good wine list with reasonable prices.
The restaurant is casual, comfortable, but not fancy with some framed photos of Italy. It is a pleasant space to dine, and the service is good.
The food is well-prepared and very tasty The service is professional and friendly.
Food was good service very good. I’ve eaten here before and would again however I didn’t feel that the red sauce was a good as my last visit and neither was the portions. Again I would return but I was slightly disappointed this time.
Good friends getting together.
Delightful neighborhood gem with good food and friendly fast service.
Food and service was good, not exceptional but good. I asked for a side of pasta and was told I have buy a separate meal no sides are offered in an Italian restaurant.Crazy!! Will think twice about returning as there are options in the Italian restaurant department.
Great service! I have dietary restrictions and they were very accommodating.
You cannot go wrong with La Cava. Just go there. Delish from start to finish!
The food was delicious. We unfortunately sat next to a big party with children and it was louder than I would have liked; but I will be going back!!! It didn't occur to me to ask to move, so that's on me. I will ask next time if that happens again. But seriously the food is worth it!
excellent service from the staff, but our food was terrible
Always a pleasure dining in Cava. The staff is amazing and the food always excellent.
This place never fails !!! The service is amazing the owner is there and the staff is pleasant and professional. The food is an amazing experience always fresh and I’ve been going there for years !! Great for family friends and a date night as well.
LaCava is a small neighborhood restaurant that we went to last night with friends. We ordered the artichoke salad and caprese salad, we had the bronzino, salmon and bolognese and everything was delicious!! The service was excellent and we will definitely return for another wonderful meal.
We loved the place and the food, the attention was great.
Always delicious & the service is always great!
Delicious- have never been, never see this advertised or hear any feedback---we had a very good meal! food was excellent!!
Terrific food and wonderful service. A really lovely neighborhood spot.
Food and service was amazing
Service is great and the food is always amazing. The eggplant pizza is so yummy, with the best crispy crust. The best caesar salad in the valley!
One of our favorites!
Orders the calamari and it was flavorless and also order a margarita pizza and it was cold and flavor was ok
La Cava is such a neighborhood gem. The food was especially fresh and delicious. Service was excellent. I felt like I was on vacation! Highly recommend!
I’m biased, but all of us always come back to La Cava as our favorite spot. Amazing food and great staff.
A wonderful Italian restaurant with the best meatball appetizer ever; fantastic sauce…..
Delicious, authentic house-made pasta dishes! The mushroom risotto and special chicken ragu with Pappardelle pasta dishes were awesome. Also the tri-colour salad - YUM!
I will return soon.
Amazing food, exceptional service and good prices
So nice to be out with friends at such a lovely restaurant. The waiter made many recommendations and all of them were great. Lovely night out
La Cava never disappoints. The service is attentive, the food is exquisite & I really appreciate having an authentic Italian restaurant so close to where I live!
The restaurant's food is not as good as it used to be. The service was great!
Inexplicably the front door is left open, letting in the loud traffic noises
Great food very great service and amazing pasta. Highly recommend the truffle pasta and pizza. Great staff and will be returning soon!
I had dined at La Cava many times before Covid. The ambiance was fantastic, the food and service was a class act. I took my sister to La Cava on Tuesday, July 6th for her Birthday. I told her how fabulous La Cava was and that she was in for a real treat. Well, the experience was less than par. The ambiance was not the same by any means. The tables were junky with paper instead of linens. The place looked run down and dirty. The staff was sloppy and I felt I was at a low-class restaurant. The food was not very good and the waiters just tossed it on the tables. I will never go back to La Cava. Sad to see it go SO downhill.
Overall all 4 stars.
Amazing food, amazing wine, and amazing company. It was a perfect night. Thank you! I recommend the Farfalle Salmon. Yum!
Best place to eat on Ventura Blvd. Quality food, amazing staff, great ambience. Must try!
La Cava is just Great! Every time we go, its better than the last time we were there. Excellent staff. Armondo is fabulous... Always delicious. Always leave with a full tummy and a smile. Thank you La Cava!
