It's upscale fine dining experience caters to those looking for an evening out, a special occasion, or a private events.The cuisine is authentic italian, using the finest ingredients. The menu alone exceeds any expectation. The daily additions to the menu, both appetizers and entrees are prepared daily by our executive chef based on the freshest market products. Cava expresses it's zest in season, both during the holidays, and on our cocktail list.

The "Fireplace room" and it's cozy, warm candle lit atmosphere will soothe you and your guests after a long day at the office, or for a romantic evening. The "sunroom", filled with light, white linen, and paired with the right company, makes for an impressive room for a private dining, or the right place to impress that someone special.

We were celebrating my wife's birthday and decided to try this restaurant for the first time. We had a 5:30 reservation on a Friday and were seated at a lovely table.

I was blown away by how special they made my husband and I feel on our anniversary. Upon entering the hostess wished us a happy anniversary and there was even a little card waiting for us on the table. The food was well prepared and tasted delicious. The atmosphere was elegant and romantic. We both love wine and they have... More

I felt in love with this place. We stepped by for lunch and the first thing which struck me was interior. There are several of dining halls and each of them is made in different but still in classical Italian style. It was a pleasure just to be there - to look around while the food was being ready.

The food and service were very good, the restaurant is great for anniversary/romantic dinner. My favorite part of this place is the atmosphere in winter, especially by the fire place.

Good food and service but not outstanding. Don't understand how you can have a wine spectator noted wine list but don't include vintage years on it. Anyone that's into wine knows the year is often key. I liked it but there are better choices.

We have been a few times and each time found a very enjoyable experience. The food has always been excellent. The atmosphere delightful -quiet enough so that we did not need to shout at each other.

This evening my husband and I went to Cava Restaurant. We had asked while making the reservations to sit in the fireplace room and although they said they cannot reserve specific tables they were able to get us right where we wanted. Our server was attentive and very pleasant, and the food was spectacular! We loved their seasonal cocktail menu,... More
