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!

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).

My husband and I had dinner here to sample the menu in the hopes of finding a venue for an upcoming family occasion.

I very much liked the pics I saw on line and the reviews were positive; however, we’d been down this road before and very disappointed.

Without too much detail, the food was amazing, as was the ambiance and service. For s very pleasant change, the reviews did not lie!

We were so impressed, we decided to book our venue.

Very authentic, rustic, and un pretentious (but could be if they wanted).

Loved it! Our new go-to spot.

For us this is a nice little hidden gem since it is within walking distance. We could actually enjoy the various wines with our dinner. Our server was delightful and really knew how to pair the wines with the courses we chose. Menu isn't overwhelming but offers something for everyone. Very tasty meals. Will go back again for sure.

Difficult to rate the restaurant, and I think OPEN TABLE is not up to date with this place. It looked like it was closed for a while!!
No wonder it was easy to get a reservation!

This restaurant was closed with chairs on the table. We called , got a voice message that confirmed that they are open on Saturdays. We left a voice message but our Call was not returned. We had to find an alternative restaurant on short notice. It is possible that this restaurant has been closed down.
