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!

We went to Cavatore for two of my girlfreinds' birthdays and everything from start to finish was perfect! We did the fried mozzarella for an appetizer (best ever) and then we did the table-side cesaer salad (best ever). A couple of us ordered the various pizzas and while one friend ordered pasta and the other a chicken dish. EVERYTHING was so very delicious! We will definitely be back!

This has been our "go to" Italian restaurant for years. We love the food and the service staff.

The eggplant parmigana is superb. The waitstaff is professional, attentive and friendly.
If I was to nitpick, it would be the lighting in the South portion of the restaurant. We sat near the wall and it was difficult to read the menus. The light from overhead fixtures is not very appealing and the small candles on the tables don't help. I recommend improvements to the lighting which will greatly improve the ambience.
