My husband and I had dinner with another couple who were no stranger to this establishment and we were so glad they suggested it. The wine was on special at $5 per glass and the food was super. Each person at the table had something different and there were no disappointments. I had the Calabrese pizza made gluten free which... More

We go to this restaurant on a regular basis and food and service is always good. Went last Thursday night, food and service were very good as always and a really nice duo were playing some music and singing, not intrusive at all, really enjoyable. Only issue I find is they closed recently for about a week for refurbishment and... More

Our group consisted of 5 couples and we were given one section of the restaurant for our gathering, which we appreciated. Our waitress was exceptionally pleasing and very menu knowledgeable. The choice of beverages, beers and wines was excellent. I was a little disappointed with my meal, Gorgonsola Tenderloin, which included a very small amount of beef tenderloin. Otherwise, the...

It was the first time visiting here for me and my wife and it was a nice night out with friends. The staff were very accommodating and the food was very good and well priced. It is a little tight for room (not very 'intimate'), but still very much worth checking out.

Food quality and variety we found excellent. Friendly staff and often live music makes a perfect night out. vast selection of wines and craft beers. Be careful walking in front entrance watch for cars pulling in especially at night. Our favourite spot to meet up with friends

Cavallo Nero is one of my go-to's. In an area where you are looking at either fine dining, road-house, or fast food, it fits nicely in the upper-middle somewhere. The food is consistently good; there is the occasional blip, but nothing is perfect all the time. They have an outstanding wine list, and their staff know it well. The service... More
