Cavatore Italian Restaurant
Book your next event with us
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!
Outstanding experience! The tableside Caesar salad made from scratch is their specialty and it is well worth the money. I had Carbonara and my wife had Veal Marsala. Both were excellent. My only criticism is the bread they serve with the meal is not up to the same standards as the rest of their food. They make pizza, so you know that have fresh dough. Why not make some good rolls with it?
Came here for my son’s 25th birthday! Nice HH wine menu at $5 a glass. Loved the pizza!
Our server was MIA a lot and didn’t always bring back our cocktails when we asked but the food was on point. We will definitely be back
Excellent red sauce - spicy but not too spicy, sweet but not too sweet.
Cavatore's Italian Restaurant is our favorite. With Bill at the Piano on Friday night, we were definitely glad to share another amazing evening together!
I can't thank the staff enough for their impeccable service and attention to detail!
We'll be Back SOON!!!
The service has always been exceptional. Great value for the entrees we ordered. Each dish I have tried is rich 6flavor. I highly recommend this establishment. I always enjoy the piano and violinist playing in the background. Great place for first dates.
My husband and I have been trying Italian restaurants all over Houston so we were excited to try this one. I had the spaghetti with bolognese sauce and it was some of the best bolognese sauce I've had yet! Waitress and staff are very friendly! Loved the live music as well which was a violin player and pianist. The restaurant is in an old barn which looks like it would be home to southern cooking but I soon learned that the original owner wanted to combine the Italian heritage with the Texas authentic feel and he did! Enjoyed it very much and will be going back!
The caesar salad was the best I’ve ever had!
Great food and service! Awesome Caesar salad made tableside and best veal marsala I've ever had!! My wife said the chicken parmesan was excellent as well.
We had a wonderful meal. we went there for HRW but have eaten there before. Always delicious. Love the piano music. Pat was excellent in playing requested tunes and going around the tables to introduce herself. Our waiter was outstanding and full of background knowledge on the restaurant. Cavatore has the best ambiance and atmospheres in my opinion. Love love love the food! Wine is awesome too! We'll continue coming back to Cavat ore. 🍝🍷🍽
This was the first time I’ve been to Cavatore and I was happy with my experience. My friend and I have a tradition that we get together for HRW and our pick was Cavatore. I got the stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer, the veal for main dish and the tiramisu for dessert. The food was very good and filling. I’ll be back for sure.
Nice place perhaps with family. The food is family style and smothered with creamy sauces. The sauces are good but reduces the taste of the actual meat. Go with family and kids.
Great place . Nice atmosphere , friendly staff. Background live band piano was a nice surprise. Not overpriced , great value for the quality of food and service.
Came here for HRW and was very disappointed. Ordered the red snapper: came out extraordinarily overcooked to the point I could barely cut it, they brought a new one... I could cut through it but it was not edible. They offer me a new meal and say they will comp it... Then they charge me $20 for small plate of spaghetti! Unbelievable. Also horribly slow service.
The food was very good. We had fried cheese and minestrone soup as an appetizer and tomatoe sauce dishes for the entree. A chocolate dessert. Our only complaint is that a piano player started in the middle of the meal and we could not hear ourselves talk to each other. He was quite good...just too loud.
