Cavatore Italian Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Wait staff was not a team effort. Rather than take my request and pass it on, It was made clear to me that it wasn’t their problem, but if I wanted my waiter..... also, the waiter provided an awkward solution to a problem with a drink from the bar—he basically brought me a second glass with the missing product, for me to mix my own at the table. Enjoyed the piano player.
Great table side caesar!!! We have been going to this local gem for over 15 years! Never brought a friend that did not also love the salad!...They return with our without us! The spaghetti and pasta dishes are not the best...sauce is mixed on noodles, and seem to be microwaved overcooked mush...but, try the pizza or the salmon. They are fresh and cooked upon order. Love the staff...feels like home...
I feel bad leaving a bad review, but the restaurant was closed due to Harvey. I had checked the website and there was nothing about it being closed. Open Table even sent me reminder about our reservation. We show up and they are closed for renovations.
The service was horrible. There was 3 of us and the restaurant was not full and we never got a refill on water. The busboy was more attentive than the waiter. Bread was brought to our table and there was so much butter it was dripping from the container onto the floor.
I have been meaning to go to this restaurant for some time. I finally did and took 3 guests. We all loved the place. The music was fantastic ... the four of us are a little older (ha!) and they seated us at a perfect cozy corner table where we were entertained by the music ... but far enough away to converse. The cocktails were perfect (kudos to the bartender) our waiter was attentive but not intrusive. The food was delicious ... we all took our first bite about the same time and looked each other as we exclaimed..."this is good!" I and we'll go back there many more times!
Cavatore is one of our very favorite restaurants! We have been going for over 20 years - the service is always superb and I have never been disappointed with my meal. The table side Caesar salad is the best I have ever had. Love the atmosphere and the piano player!
This restaurant has a unique fun look and atmosphere. It is very different to the regular restaurants. The service was great and the food extremely tasty. Very family friendly. The pianist adds to the upbeat atmosphere. Will definitely go back to this restaurant for a casual, relaxed evening.
Great ambiance. I took my wife on a Saturday night for her birthday and we loved the place and the food. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. Honestly I just went to Italy last month and I had a better experience at Cavatore than I had in Rome.
I had the Saltimboca and my wife had the Fettuccine Giancarlo and they were both very good. I recommend it.
