Good basic meals

The restaurant was fairly quiet when we visited, but it was a Tuesday evening at the end of September. There is a fair choice of meals, we went for the pizza and a pasta dish. My pizza was huge and very nice. I am informed the pasta was also very good. Desserts looked like they were 'ready made... read more

Friends from the local area took my adult daughter and me to this restaurant to meet my daughter and celebrate her first trip to Slovenia. We had a reservation for a party if five, ages ranging from 29 to 66. We were promptly seated, the restaurant was comfortable and attractive, and the service was excellent--including descriptions, suggestions, timeliness, and checking... More

I was looking for a restaurant to reward our volunteers at the end of project. Marko was very accommodating and had prepared us a menu to remember. They made room for us at the last moment notice and made us a perfect evening. Deliciously prepared dishes all sorts on an oval plate and we couldn't decide which we like more.... More

Not close to Tuscany restaurant expect of ambience. High priced food is good. Beside quite good high priced beef steaks you can choose between to many different types of pasta and pizza - which are not close to the simple Italian pasta.

Our hotel was near the restaurant and so far away from the center so we decided to eat the first night here. We like a lot and ended up eating here for 3 nights. In all meals were very well attended, all our choices were tasty and well made. There are good choices of meats, pastas and pizzas. The price... More

Some people absolutely love this place. I liked it but it is nothing special and hugely overpriced. Plus the waiters always try to charge you extra - popping a new bottle of wine without asking because the previous one is over, bottles of *expensive* water keep arriving until you have to say *enough* and pressure to order more appetizers make...

Just visiting with friend for dinner mid of the week. Wegetable soup for the start was nice, then pizza which was over-baked ( so the taste was too bitter). Others had different types of pasta, also they were not so satisfied. Deserts were not what expected ( or asked). Would not really recomend or go back. Service was average

I have visited gostilna Kaval for several times, but unfortunatelly after 2 last visits the restaurant became very average. Still very big choice of different food, big plates but not very friendly waiters. Quite moderate prices.
