Excellent food and service
Really nice for a first date. Variety on the menu. Only thing, the service seemed rushed or distracted.
Wonderful food and atmosphere. Waiter was a little invisible and hard to nail down at times. Piano playing was nice touch (although would have preferred Frank Sinatra to the endless Elton John songs in an Italian Restaurant - though I love Elton). So much to choose from on menu it was overwhelming but everyone was happy with their selections. Had the rosemary chicken - fabulous! Will definitely be back!
Bread was so so. Kind of dry with no oil or butter.
Eggplant Parmesan was pretty good.
Service was decent.
Would go back to try dessert. Looked tasty.
Salmon Tarragon was the best salmon I have ever had. Food is always excellent.
Our favorite local spot. Best Caesar salads, period. Snapper Della Casa was delicious. Great wine. Great music - piano and violin tonight. Chocolate mousse. Not much more you could ask for.
I Chose New Years Eve for Date Night, and Cavatore's on New Years Eve was spectacular!
Great Service during the busiest of times....delectable entree's and although our favorite Table Side Service for Caesar Salad was not available, the salads were still very fine.
Thank You Cavatore's for a Fine Dining Experience....Once Again!
Well, it was my birthday and I wanted to have one of my favorite meals there. I had requested my “Favorite” waiter but unfortunately he was out ill that day. I should have called ahead to find out, but “Luis” attended me and he was Great. Other guests were also having birthdays and I noticed the attention paid to them. Since I was dining by myself I did not want the attention, kinda sad. Si j asked zLuis if we could skip it and just have my complementary Birthday Cake wrapped “To Go”, he obliged. Thank you zLuis you saved my evening! By the way! The lady playing the piano was Excellent! Made my evening more Special. Thank you Cavatore, my home away from home.
Took a long while for a server to come up and even bring us water. The guy seating us was unfriendly and uninviting as usual. We come here quite a bit...rude if we walk in without a reservation (even though it’s empty) and still rude when we do book a reservation so it’s a no win situation with what I would consider the face of the restaurant since he’s at the front and the first person we ever see. Could be more welcoming. Normally our servers are excellent
Thank you for another memorable Christmas Eve dinner! Food and service are both outstanding! And the piano player adds extra joy.
We always enjoy Csvatores particularly at Christmas. Love the piano with Pat Johnson. The flavors are the right intensity, nothing overpowers. Wine selection is good. Staff is knowledgeable and helpful.
Absolutely wonderful! We loved every minute of it. Our server was awesome, the food was so delicious, and we totally enjoyed the pianist. Our holiday fun with friends was perfect. Can't wait to go back!
This place has a lot of sentimentality for me but I’ve noticed that the food quality is slipping. Please make sure you don’t slip too far. I want to keep coming back.
Cavatore always meets and exceeds my expectations.
Fantastic food and the folks are super nice....
Great food and great service! Love the piano player.
I had a small birthday party here and it was great. Great food and awesome service.
We have loved Cavatore for many years! It's a great special occasion place, or just a "where do we want to eat" spur of the moment place. The atmosphere is always great, and the live music (usually piano, this last time was a pianist and a violist, which was a great treat) is a plus to add to the ambiance. The food and the service is always great.
This is a great find. The food was delicious. The restaurant has a unique decor complete with cloth tablecloths and napkins. I can’t say enough about the bread. We will definitely be returning.
Great service, friendly people
Was recommended this spot from a local Houstonian. Gotta say I was impressed with the ambiance and the food. Sangria’s were good. Menu isn’t too pricey. Would definitely come back.
Please bring back the ten item lunch menu........,
Went for our anniversary. It was very nice. We had a great time. The live music (piano and violin) was great. We did have a very loud table right behind my head, which was annoying, but not the fault of the restaurant.
I have been dining @ "Cavatore's" for over 30 years now, and ALWAYS AN EXCELLENT TIME, both @ the bar and the dining room!!! Excellent service, both always courteous and professional!!!
Always great food and great service. We love Cavatores and will dine there again soon.
As always it was a fabulous lunch
The reservations don’t mean anything at Cavatore. Waited a good 35-40 minutes for a table with a reservation for my wife’s bday. This is the second time it’s happened to us. They use the fact that it’s the weekend as an excuse but they don’t actually hold tables for reservations at all and that’s obvious. They shouldn’t be taking reservations if they can’t handle holding the tables at the time of the reservation.
We really enjoyed eating at Cavatore. Caesars salad is awesome and the marinara has tons of flavor. We’ll be back for sure (soon)!
Our Favorite Italian Restaurant in The Heights, came through once again with a great dining experience, especially for the "Twins Celebrating their 65th Birthday's together!!!
Our waiter, Chad, was working his magic again....all evening......and so....extra special thanks to the entire team at Cavatore's, for helping to make our dining experience a glorious celebration!
It was amazing
Had a loud table to start the night, but the awesome team handled it wonderfully. Great place
The piano playing was wonderful and the food was delicious.
The atmosphere was awesome with the pianist playing set the mood. Very family friendly and the food was amazing.
First time to dine at Cavatore. Very good food. Great service, server Gabriel was very attentive.
The best Caesar salad in Houston! Great old school Italian!
Outstanding... You must have Caesars Salad, the best ever.
This is a good neighborhood restaurant. We have been going there for years. It is always consistent. The food is good and the service can be slow sometimes, but it is normally good. It can get loud sometimes. Overall it is a good place.
One of our favorite restaurants in Houston! Great food and great piano but Pat!
We go there every Thursday for dinner. It never disappoints!!
I took my wife here for her birthday dinner. We had a great time. Didn’t know what to expect because reviews don’t tell the whole story. The table side Caesar salads was excellent and the pasta we had was great. What made the evening even more special was the pianist coming over to our table and asking my wife about if she would like a song played for her birthday. Such a sweet moment and a really great night.
We love Cavatores and dine here often. The food and service are always excellent!
