Cavatore Italian Restaurant serves family-friendly Italian fare. This red-checkered tablecloth restaurant has been serving country-style Italian fare since 1984. Rustic and charming, from the outdoor paddle wheel to the open-loft ceiling, you will experience a unique setting as soon as you step into this 100 year old barn turned restaurant. Located near the Heights on Ella Boulevard a few blocks inside the 610 loop. SInce our last visit a couple of years ago, we understand that Cavatore has acquired new management.
We were disappointed to discover that the former piano player, Michael Angelo, who was always very friendly and accommodating, had been replaced by a duo of musicians who are billed as playing jazz but who in actuality, at least while we were present, performed a mixed musical selection. We understand that the food and service has declined somewhat under the new management. We would concur based upon our most recent dining experience. While our service was good and the food quality acceptable if average, it failed to excite us nor did it seem as savory as in the past. For the price diners can do better if seeking authentic Italian cuisine.
Old world standard Italian dishes are served in a casual space adorned with an eclectic blend of memorabilia from across Italy. Appetizers include Italian meats and cheeses, squid and escargot. Classic entrees include Spaghetti, ravioli, cannellone and linguini. From the Calamari Fritti appetizer to the Lasagna Al Forno, this casual Italian restaurant provides many several options sure to appeal to the children as well as adults in the group . Leave room for traditional "dolci" like cannoli, tiramisu and spumoni.
Whether you're celebrating a special occasion or simply taking a break from the workday world, Cavatore’s is a good choice for a reasonably priced casual Italian venue with an appealing décor. Hopefully Cavatore will regain its stride soon.

I had been to this restaurant a couple of times over the years, then went again last Saturday. The food is high-priced and not really tasty. Even the chocolate mousse-type dessert was less than delicious, which is unusual for Italian restaurants. The food is disappointing, to say the least, especially considering how high the prices.
