La Cava is a superior restaurant with gracious, friendly and efficient staff. Manager Victoria Sanchez and Assistant Manager Gary Thornburg are working staff. They moved quickly, caring for each table and greeting each customer with genuine warmth. Their knowledge of the menu is impeccable and they can answer questions about each dish. I highly recommend this premier restaurant! Gail G.,... More

Beautiful old church transformed into a lovely restaurant. As impressive as it was with white linens and candles, I observed many opportunities to update the décor. Staff was great. Owner present the entire time we were dining but did not visit the patrons (except for 1 table, and the time he came to our table to speak w/ our waitress... More

This place is amazing. The food is authentic Italian, the wait staff is so knowledgable and professional, the restaurant is housed in a restored church...beautiful. The owner is almost always on premises. Don't go if you don't have time to sit, relax and enjoy the experience. It's pricey, but well worth it.

What a great place for a special occasion. We were seated in the former alter of this refurbished church turned fine Italian dining. Great table by ourselves next to the "wine wall". Beautiful view as the sun set through the magnificent stained glass windows. Wow! Service is excellent. You are taken care of by each and every member of the... More

My partner is an Italian with extensive fine restaurant background, I am a native Southern Appalachian cook. We both have very picky palates. When we can't make the 2 hour round trip from south of Charlotte for dinner at La Cava we think about it and want to be there. Truly wonderful food. Just go. Thanks again, Gianni! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Check out the menu, but don't make up your mind till you have heard the specials. Those are your best bet. Save lots of room, you have to go all in. Apps, Entrées, Drinks, and Desserts. I think the Cosmos are made with rocket fuel, strong but so good!

We dine out a lot and not many restaurants really hit it out of the park. La Cava is the one. I don't why we'd never found this place before. The restaurant is located in an old church and the magnificent leaded glass windows are worth the drive to Salisbury - but just wait until you tasted the food. The... More

This is the place to eat if you want to make an evening of a slow, relaxing, excellent meal. The homemade pasta and desserts are not to be missed.
