Loved the food. Great, friendly service. Would dine here again.
Lovely food, would go back for sure, only staff not that friendly
Unfortunately, the food last night compared to other many memorable evenings was sub ordinary and not up to their usual standard. The dishes presented, some were cold, others the pasta was over-cooked, just not good at all.
Waiters are not friendly food is bland very lazy workers
My favourite go to restaurant. I love the minestrone, cardinals & chilli mussels with spaghetti. Located in Lyon st. for that Mediterranean experience.
Awful service, no up selling, the most painfully average food, Jesus Christ guys
Great food that's well priced. They don't sell any of the items listed in the "gourmet homemade agnolotti & ravioli" section which they have not removed from the menu yet. Definitely recommend the Italian wines. Serving sizes are very generous if you get the main size.
Always a great night at Cafe Cavallino.
Lovely delicious food and great service! I highly recommend anyone to dine in
Always the best. Always happy with food and service
I often dine at the Cafe and enjoy the ambience. I especially like sitting outside so I can people watch and enjoy the fresh air. They have outside heaters which are very warm and great on a cold day.
I highly recommend the cafe to all diners as one of the best in Lygon Street.
Service can have a bit more improvement. We always keep coming back.
Beautiful meal. Service was great but one waitress just literally dumped my meal down, said nothing and walked off!!
Disappointing that by 8.00 my main wasn't available and Tiramisu had finished for the night... in an Italian restaurant!!
We all had the lasagna and it was absolutely delicious, it’s always the one dish I always look forward too
Food was great, unfortunately service was extremely poor! We weren't given an opportunity for anyone to order a second drink and we had to ask them to clear the dirty plates from the table 3 times before it was done.
The staff appeared to be standing at the door talking instead of waiting on the tables.
Great food but the service left a lot to be desired. we had a prior booking ... the staff did not know where our table was, they argued about it in front of us then eventually seated us. They then had to move us again to make way for a larger party (there were 5 of us). The staff seemed disinterested and not overly friendly... unsure if this is just a language barrier.
Always great food at a great location. Been coming here regularly for several years with friends. All of us are happy to keep coming back.
They did such an amazing job making it special for our daughters Birthday!
Cafe Cavallino was exactly what my wife and I were looking for as we were visiting Melbourne and wanted to enjoy a shared grazing style lunch with whichever of our nieces and nephews wanted to join us for lunch. A wonderful time was had by all. The food was great.
Not impressed, stuffed up our booking was told no seats available until I presented the email confirmation then all of a sudden we have a table. Food was very ordinary in taste and appearance.
The tastiest delicious Italian food. Relaxing atmosphere and always wonderful service. It’s our family favourite restaurant.
Wonderful food and service !! Interstate travelers with us and they enjoyed it as much as we did.
Not a great experience considering the value for money
staff were simply standing around when we were waiting to order, asked for little things (ie: pepper) which were ignored, food was mediocre, went for a birthday dinner, was kind of disappointed as nobody particularly enjoyed their food.
Service amazing food less than average venue too noisy to converse
I love it there. I love the food, the service & location. Minestrone, Zingara, Marinara or Cardinale or the Chilli Mussel spaghetti! :)
The food was pleasant and good value. Staff were tolerant of the antics of the 3-year old in our party. Ideal for families.
Pizza was delicious
lasagna was plain and Bland I would not order this at this restaurant
This place is a great place if you're wanting some good Italian dishes or Pizza.
Love this place.....Its a great family run restaurant where the owners are on staff to great you.....
Thanks Gino for a great night.....
I booked online and it worked. The staff were friendly and efficient and the food was great. I will be back.
It’s always a great night when you got to Cafe Cavallino! The food and the service is always amazing and the staff are so kind and friendly
The food and service is always so lovely. The owners are amazing and so friendly. Always making you feel welcomed and loved.
Been to this place a few times now......Its in a great area (Lygon St Carlton)
The staff are great.
The owner is very friendly...
The food is good.
My Kids love coming here.
Its a great place for friends catch up.
Salad and veggies were not fresh, had a really off taste to them, wasn’t a fan of the Parma either
Highly recommend. Great food, great service.
Overall not bad.
Booked an outdoor table for 3 people for Christmas. Due to COVID and the time of year the restaurant was at full capacity which shows people respect and love this restaurant. The food was excellent. I had a creamy marinara and it was all fresh. My sticky date pudding was very generous in size. I left there full and satisfied. Shall attend next time I’m in Melbourne.
Great food, atmosphere and service. Staff were friendly and there was plenty of space.
Dinner for two was very tasty and generous servings! Great food and such lovely staff! Thank you for a wonderful evening.
Great food as always, friendly staff, nice atmosphere
