Met my friend here for lunch and we had a lovely lunch. Our waitress was delightful and attentive. We shared a pizza and salad and it was delicious. We will differently be back.

Excellent service and food. They were very accommodating to my toddler’s needs and made him a meal that was not even on the menu. Will definitely return!

Terrible service. Got there at 6:45 for 7 reservation. Friends arrived at 7:05. Took appetizer and wine order. Had to nail down at 8:00 for food order. At 9:40 we still did not have our meals. The restaurant was rude and will not return. Told us when we sat down it was a new menu and new chefs. We came because of the old chef and old menu. Very upsetting bate and switch

Was an impromptu birthday get-together bringing friends from Pickering, Barrie and Orangeville. Everything was great but they ran out of the wine we were drinking. That is the only reason for the overall 4 stars. They have a corkage fee and we opened wine that was given as gifts. The food was amazing and the service was impeccable. It was quiet and calm inside. Definitely will be back.

The food was acceptable, but not good for the price. The Osso Buco was like a piece of leather. The service was mediocre for some reason despite there not being many people in the restaurant; we had to ask multiple times for things like drinks and bread. The penne alla vodka was good. The crab gnocchi was pretty great. The arancini were acceptable, but not worth the price. The bread was "toasted" but tasted more like it was stale. Wine menu was limited. Only 3 deserts, 2 of which we ordered and not impressed with. Server was kind enough to comp 2 deserts due to the horrible Osso Buco, but the bill still came to $160 for 4 people (no one had alcohol). I would not recommend for the price.

Cavallino was a nice Wednesday evening dinner out.
The restaurant was quiet (we were the only ones there at the time) so it didn't take long for the food to come out.
Value wise it's definitely pricey for what you get. We ended up having to order a pizza after our entrees because we were still hungry!
The server was really pleasant and very helpful.

My girlfriends took me to this restaurant for my birthday. I am a wine lover, so “wine bar” was the draw. The service was top notch! They were fantastic. We ended up ordering many items off the menu and all sharing them. We all really enjoyed the evening.

We have been to this restaurant before... the service and food was alot better the first time perhaps because we had an earlier reservation at 05:30p.m. This time we had an 07:00p.m reservation and we waited over 1.5hrs for our food, we didn't even ordered an appetiser. The restaurant was full but no line up and the "Fresh Pappardelle, boneless beer braised rabbit" was full of little bones. My daughter complained to the waitress and she said this dish with the rabbit comes with many little bones. She didn't even know the dish is supposed to be boneless. My wife's dish with the mussels was full of sand, she thought she broke a tooth. My daughter complained to the waitress and asked her if we should let her know or should she call the manager or do the online complaint? Her reply was a rude "obviously". The food was not good, not tasty, it was really late and the service was really bad!!!! This dinner was supposed to be a celebration of my family for my daughter's education achievements. She ordered out after we left Cavallino.

We hadn't been to Cavallino in some time, nice to see they freshened and opened it up. The second we walked in the door we were greated immediately, and taken to our seats. The wait staff were pleasant, professional, and well dressed. Drinks, menus, and evening specials all convaid in a timely fashion. Food was terrific.
They even noticed a slight wobble in our table ( which we didnt) and balanced it without us even asking. Very busy night, place was full, but they didn't miss a beat.
Well done!

It’s an Italian wine bar
When asked if they had a Chianti
They said, I’ll have to check?
Had to ask for bread, came after we finished

Never again visit

I booked this restaurant for my wife's Birthday. Called the restaurant to confirm on the day of the reservation. left them a message as they indicated on the answering machine. Thinking that they were busy and not able to call me back, my wife, Daughter and I drove to the restaurant only to find that the restaurant was closed. No sign on the door, no message on the answering machine and nothing indicated on the restaurants website. I would love to write a review if we got to eat at the restaurant. VERY DISAPPOINTED!!!!

The waitress was reading the specials from a note pad and didn't have any additional knowledge about them. Keep in mind we were one of the last reservations of the evening. Then, when one of my guests asked for a glass of wine, she walked over with an open bottle her hand and just poured it right then and there from her glass off the table. For a "wine bar" I would have expected more, including a much bigger wine list.

The menu had spelling errors, and frankly it looked cheaply printed.

I used to go to this restaurant frequently a couple years ago and the wait staff was excellent, just haven't been for one reason or another in the past year or so. The food was still good, but honestly the look of the menu and the wait staff quality seemed like corners are being cut. I don't think I'll rush back.

Food was excellent. Service was decent. Only complaint was we wanted to substitute the lettuce on their most expensive salad to a different lettuce (cheaper) and they refused. I get the "no substitutes policy" on a busy night, but since the salad was not pre-mixed this was ridiculous. A little common sense on the policy of no substitutes should be in order. The server would not even ask the chef.

Although I would recommend this restaurant as the food was excellent. I would personally try another restaurant next time in the area due to the above comment about the lettuce. Left a bit of a bad taste. (and no we did not get the salad and in fact spent less money overall because of it).
