we went to Cava for the first time on Saturday night April 18th - we were able to sit right down at the bar. The restaurant was absolutely beautiful with the bar having a lot of atmosphere. The restaurant was very crowded so as I said in the title - maybe it was just my experience..... But that is where... More

My friend has been raving to me about Cava for months now and I can finally see why. This restaurant was absolutely beautiful inside and the food was very good as well. I had a pasta dish with shrimp in a vodka sauce that I would highly recommend. My dirty martini was just how I ordered it--extra dry with blue... More

My husband and I are regulars at Cava, but just recently we hosted a family dinner for our son's birthday. Everything was fantastic! My family was so impressed with not only our meals, but also the decor of the restaurant. Definitely recommend for a night out!

Great Italian restaurant with a large selection of food at reasonable prices. Good location next to RT 84. I had the best Veal Parm around. The facility was clean and the staff was very friendly and courteous.

Cava has potential to be a very good restaurant. although the location (along a busy road that runs past ESPN) is less than desirable, the restaurant's ambiance is fantastic. Food is good although slightly overpriced.

If you are looking to dine in elegance Cava is the perfect choice. Upscale Italian cuisine with an upscale atmosphere. Exceptional service, do not expect to be rushed. Sit back and relax! The food was amazing and so was its presentation. I would not recommend taking small children. But it's wonderful restaurant to go to kids free!!!
