Slow service but then rushed due to required time limit. Dinner came 20 minutes before our time was up. Asked about dessert while still eating dinner.

We were rushed and forced to eat our food in 20 min while another table was there before us and still were eating and drinking after we were forced to eat quickly and pay for the food also it was cold and not worth the price.

As lovely an evening as we could have had during the Red Zone with 10 people in the restaurant. Our server, Sebastian informed us of the specials, which were delicious and reasonably priced. He was as sociable as the conversation presented itself. He paid attention to detail and was a good server.
We would go back in a heartbeat.

Sadly the food here was underwhelming. We used to come to Cavallino often years ago and this was our first time back in a long time but we definitely won't be returning. The servers were very nice but the service was kind of slow and the food was nothing special. There were also quite a few people in the restaurant considering covid restrictions are in place. While it was nice to get out of the house, it wasn't worth the money we spent.

Food was very dry and no taste. Disappointed with calamari, and steak was not good quality. Otherwise the wine, Cesar salad, salmon was good. Service was great.

Booked last minute while shopping. Came in half hour early and was taken in since restaurant was empty. Greeted by a friendly woman who was the server/bartender and host all in one. Upon entering was shocked how bright the restaurant was. Asked to dim the lights and she said yes but came back to say that’s as low as they got. Ordered the calamari and burrata both very good as well as cocktails. Me and my friend both ordered pasta for our mains I ordered the alla vodka was surprised to see the shredded parmesan already in a mountain on top and wasn’t asked if I’d like some fresh after serving? Was good though. Service overall good. Food great, Atmosphere could definitely use an update also didn’t hear any music playing if there was it was really low

The restaurant was running a little late and they called us before. I appreciated being able to stay home and not have to wait in the restaurant. Great service and classic Woodbridge Italian food

Food was incredible!!! The Chef is from Italy, and it shows because the pasta was amazing. The hostess/waitress was very knowledgeable of all the dishes and accommodated our complicated allergy requests. As for dining indoors during the COVID-19 pandemic all the tables were very well spaced apart, there was hand sanitizer and masks available all over the restaurant. Staff both in and outside of the kitchen were in full PPE as well. It was a great overall dining experience. I will definitely return.

We asked to not be outside for our reso, then we wait an additional 30 minutes (which is fine) but then they literally put us outside in -3 weather... I get that it’s covid but that’s another way to get sick

Went to Cavallino for my cousin’s birthday dinner and it was super lovely! Quiet, great service, amazing food. The menu is not very big but I still had trouble choosing because everything sounded SO good! We had the crispy polenta fries and charcuterie board to start which were both great. I had the penne a la vodka and it was hands down the best I’ve ever had. The others got salad and they said it was very fresh and flavourful.

Definitely bringing more friends and coming back here soon!

It was great to talk with the manager/sommelier about the history of this place. Through it’s ups and downs over the years, the current management and chef are top notch. It’s a young couple from Italy who arrived in Canada recently. They bring a nice ambiance to the place. The wine list was nice and the suggestions were excellent. We had 2 bottles and both paired well with our meals.

The only reason we did not but a 5* for the food was because they serve mortadella on the charcuterie board and we really aren’t fans. Main meal portions were good and well priced. Dessert was also very good. We had the Panna Cotta.

Like many other restaurants, the COVID-19 challenge makes it difficult to create a full ambiance. But we had a very enjoyable evening out.

I would return anytime.

Strange odor from restaurant from when we arrived.
Food was way over priced considering what we got. Variety of choices was little to none. Not even penne al a vodka for an Italian restaurant.
Pizza was not wood oven pizza and nothing spectacular.

Will not be returning.

My dad wanted grilled lamb as he was 96 years old the nite we went! No lamb! On your website it says grigliata mista with lamb $ 42 for two! He settled for risotto thank god he liked it! I had guests from out of town! Ordered baccala! It looked like fish and chips! Sorry but I will not be coming back! Our server was great! But the food has to be just as great! Thanks Nicoletta!

Excellent food with a southern Italian influence. The service by Nicoletta was very attentive and she took the time to explain the specialty of the menu items. All items ordered were beautifully presented and thoroughly enjoyed by all in our party ~ flavourful buratta with prosciutto, tender fried calamari, crispy bacala on a tomatoe caper sauce, and perfectly prepared mixed grill of lamb, sausage, and steak. Looking forward to a return visit.

Beautiful place with soothing and authentic ambience. Food was great, prices were great, wine was delicious. The only issue we had was we dined at the same time as a very large family party (we were 4, they were maybe 25) so all of our orders were pretty delayed but it wasn’t a huge deal. Will recommend to anyone!

Portions were a little smaller than expected but tasted pretty good. The seafood pasta was delicious. The rapini and sausage pasta was okay. The server was a little awkward and not as prompt as we would have liked. We also didn’t like that the view was of a parking lot. They should put the blinds down at night.
