In general, this was a nice spot.

But my pizza was soupy. We got a classic margarita pizza for the table and it was wet and soggy.

Knowing this is located in woodbridge, there is a certain quality standard for Italian food. The pizza really let me down and I was disappointed that it came out the way it did.

However, my seafood pasta was perfectly cooked. Our whole table ate and loved their main courses.

Just don't get the pizza - it's awful.

Food lacked real flavors, pizza would benefit better with Buffalo mozzarella or fresh mozzarella.. the restaurant claims it’s a wine bar but has a very minimal wine selection with very low inventory. What they have working for them is good sever .. Sebastian and a tasty cocktail… my

First time here to celebrate friends wedding anniversary. Excellent food and service. Nicoletta was professional, personable and very knowledgable about the menu and wine offerings. Started with some great cocktails, Negronis, Aperol Spritz and Lavender Mist. All were amazing! For antipasti, pasta and carne had burrata and fritto misto, tagliolini cacio e pepe and the gnocchi all'aragosta. We then shared the entree special (grilled lamp chops with zucchini and eggplant). Everything was served piping hot and was delicious. Courses were also served at a perfect pace to enjoy our drinks and wine. We did not have room for dessert but truly the only suggestion would be to have some homemade dessert selections added to the menu to compliment the authentic menu choices. Overall an excellent meal and service for the special celebration and would definitely go back even though it was 1 hour drive for us to get there!

Amazing, food from amazing chef, great atmosphere, but little bit tight . Chairs are set up so close to each other and litter ally you can not move especially when you have kids .
The waiter was so pushy and speaking very fast . He tries to push you as eat and leaaaaaave . No kids Menu .
I am not recommending this place for someone that has english language as a second or third or fourth.

We are so close to this gem of a restaurant. We haven’t been out since the lockdowns but have eaten here before. It’s small and cozy, the value, the excellent service and great food will bring us back again.

The place was nice and the service was good.
But the food was terrible. Everything we got was extremely bland.
We had higher expectations for this place due to the reviews, but didn’t like it.

First time at the restaurant. Our server Sebastian was fantastic, food was amazing.

Something to consider. I’ve driven passed that plaza for 20 years and didn’t know there was a restaurant there. A better sign might draw more traffic!

We were rushed and forced to eat our food in 20 min while another table was there before us and still were eating and drinking after we were forced to eat quickly and pay for the food also it was cold and not worth the price.

As lovely an evening as we could have had during the Red Zone with 10 people in the restaurant. Our server, Sebastian informed us of the specials, which were delicious and reasonably priced. He was as sociable as the conversation presented itself. He paid attention to detail and was a good server.
We would go back in a heartbeat.

Sadly the food here was underwhelming. We used to come to Cavallino often years ago and this was our first time back in a long time but we definitely won't be returning. The servers were very nice but the service was kind of slow and the food was nothing special. There were also quite a few people in the restaurant considering covid restrictions are in place. While it was nice to get out of the house, it wasn't worth the money we spent.

Booked last minute while shopping. Came in half hour early and was taken in since restaurant was empty. Greeted by a friendly woman who was the server/bartender and host all in one. Upon entering was shocked how bright the restaurant was. Asked to dim the lights and she said yes but came back to say that’s as low as they got. Ordered the calamari and burrata both very good as well as cocktails. Me and my friend both ordered pasta for our mains I ordered the alla vodka was surprised to see the shredded parmesan already in a mountain on top and wasn’t asked if I’d like some fresh after serving? Was good though. Service overall good. Food great, Atmosphere could definitely use an update also didn’t hear any music playing if there was it was really low

Food was incredible!!! The Chef is from Italy, and it shows because the pasta was amazing. The hostess/waitress was very knowledgeable of all the dishes and accommodated our complicated allergy requests. As for dining indoors during the COVID-19 pandemic all the tables were very well spaced apart, there was hand sanitizer and masks available all over the restaurant. Staff both in and outside of the kitchen were in full PPE as well. It was a great overall dining experience. I will definitely return.

We asked to not be outside for our reso, then we wait an additional 30 minutes (which is fine) but then they literally put us outside in -3 weather... I get that it’s covid but that’s another way to get sick
