First time there and will come back for sure. Very good
Amazing food with amazing service !! Cozy feeling
The server was from Italy and was so attentive!! Amazing experience
An amazing atmosphere with wonderful food, and an outstanding level of service
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
Great authentic Italian place. Our server was a delight. She was extremely understanding about my allergies. Super pleasant and nice.
Great hidden gem. Must try!
Great food, Great service, Ambiance could be improved but overall a good experience. Would go back for sure.
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.
Excellent service. Portions were small for the price.
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.
a true hidden Woodbridge gem! if you haven't visited Cavallino for a meal you are missing out...
Food was tasty, service was good but the portions were small.
Fantastic meal... service and entire evening was amazing!
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!
Top notch food and service. This place never disappoints.
My go to place take family and friends for a wonderful authentic Italian meal. Keep up the great work!
My wife and I had a very relaxing dinner without any interruption or rushing, and we got just that,
Thank you Calling and staff!

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.
Great ambiance, good food, great service....will become a regular.
Cavallino was simply amazing! the atmosphere was buzzing with excitement... I can't wait to go back!
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!
The food was awful, the portions were very small. The prices were high for what you are getting. I won’t be going back!
Fantastic food and experience. Truly an authentic Italian restaurant. The server and chef served up amazing dishes and world class service. My boyfriend and his cousins all loved the atmosphere and would recommend to anyone!
We enjoyed our dinner but the restaurant was quite empty. Food was good and the waitress was helpful in guiding to choose our main courses.
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.
Met my friend here for lunch and we had a lovely lunch. Our waitress was delightful and attentive. We shared a pizza and salad and it was delicious. We will differently be back.
Excellent service and food. They were very accommodating to my toddler’s needs and made him a meal that was not even on the menu. Will definitely return!
Terrible service. Got there at 6:45 for 7 reservation. Friends arrived at 7:05. Took appetizer and wine order. Had to nail down at 8:00 for food order. At 9:40 we still did not have our meals. The restaurant was rude and will not return. Told us when we sat down it was a new menu and new chefs. We came because of the old chef and old menu. Very upsetting bate and switch
Authentic food and quality service
We had a phenomenal time at Cavalina Wine Bar. The food, the service, it was all impeccable. Every person in our party of 15 was impressed. We will be back for sure.
Was an impromptu birthday get-together bringing friends from Pickering, Barrie and Orangeville. Everything was great but they ran out of the wine we were drinking. That is the only reason for the overall 4 stars. They have a corkage fee and we opened wine that was given as gifts. The food was amazing and the service was impeccable. It was quiet and calm inside. Definitely will be back.
The food was acceptable, but not good for the price. The Osso Buco was like a piece of leather. The service was mediocre for some reason despite there not being many people in the restaurant; we had to ask multiple times for things like drinks and bread. The penne alla vodka was good. The crab gnocchi was pretty great. The arancini were acceptable, but not worth the price. The bread was "toasted" but tasted more like it was stale. Wine menu was limited. Only 3 deserts, 2 of which we ordered and not impressed with. Server was kind enough to comp 2 deserts due to the horrible Osso Buco, but the bill still came to $160 for 4 people (no one had alcohol). I would not recommend for the price.
Fantastic Food and exceptional service! Definitely will be returning
Cavallino was a nice Wednesday evening dinner out.
The restaurant was quiet (we were the only ones there at the time) so it didn't take long for the food to come out.
Value wise it's definitely pricey for what you get. We ended up having to order a pizza after our entrees because we were still hungry!
The server was really pleasant and very helpful.
Amazing service, food, and atmosphere!
Great ambiance, the food is to die for! We will be back again soon.
My two friends and I had a fabulous time at Cavallino. The food was exceptional and the service was great. I’ve been there several times and it’s consistently good. I’ll be back!!!
