My date and I truly enjoyed our experience at Cavatore’s, the ambiance was great. We order the table side prepared Cesar salad that was probably hands down the best that I have tasted. I had trouble deciding which entree to pick because they all looked delicious. I had the Mahi Mahi which was really tasty and the farm to table vegetables that came with it were so fresh. We will definitely be going again to try other menu items.

A bit more crowded than on a normal day but very appropriate for Valentine's Day. Service was very good, food was exceptional(as usual).

This is a beautiful rustic Italian experience with live music and tiny candles burning in each table. It is a gem! We go every year for Valentines. It is amazing g!

If I could leave them 10 stars I would. The filet is truly the best I’ve ever had. A true Italian restaurant and the table side Caesar salad is amazing.

The service is top notch... exactly what one would expect for the price... now, Cavatore isn’t cheap, but it’s not out of line for the quality. The food is amazing, the atmosphere is cozy and relatively quiet & there is live piano music.

Highly recommended.

The food is really really good. Homemade garlic bread. Large drinks. It never disappoints.

Caesar salad prepared table-side, excellent. Entree served too soon. But large portions, well seasoned. Pasta definitely al dente. Pecan cheesecake rich and full of gooey goodness. Live piano music was unobtrusive, romantic.

Not my first time to take a business group to dinner here. And won't be my last. A Houston staple worth the drive for that special meal with those that you love.

Used to be a favorite but this last visit was horrible. The service was nonexistant and nowhere near the exceptional service we used to get. The food is still good but we won’t be back unless they can up the service standards back to what it used to be. So sad.

After waiting FOREVER, our waiter forgot drinks and entrees we ordered and the. Kept blaminh everyone and everything else for the missing items. Said he removed items from the bill because of the mistakes but actually ended up adding other things we didn’t even order.

As usual Cavatore Italian Restaurant did not disappoint! From the appys to the main entree to the wine - everything was amazing. The caesar salad is the best I have had!
