A great family meal

The last evening of our Italian holidays we dined at this restaurant, recommended by our hotel. The pasta was amongst the best we'd had, and the deserts were beautiful. I loved the big open windows and relaxed atmosphere.

The restaurant feels like whay you would hope to find in this area: large tables, with plenty of space, Roman feel, local people. We had great nappetizers: fresh seasonal funghi, wonderful mozzarella di buffala, good local Lazio red wine. The meats were somewhat disappointing: roast maialino and agnello were Ok but not outstanding. Good service, but not memorable. Overall, we... More

This was our last restaurant after 2 weeks in Italy. This place is fantastic. It was recommend by our hotel ( tenuta cusmano, great place). Even if after 2 weeks of restaurants you're usually more demanding, this place is really great. The service was effective, charming and quick. Advise were great, the atmosphere of this place is fantastic.

My family (wife, myself and three kids aged 12, 12, 14) were sent here by the owner of the villa we were staying at just outside of Grottaferrata late on a Sunday afternoon when we arrived a check in tired and hungry. The restaurant was willing to take us despite that fact it was well past lunch for a Sunday.... More

This is a really top class restaurant. We ate here on a busy Saturday night but the food and service were immaculate. They started by offering us a glass of Prosecco while we perused the menu, and took my gluten-free requirements in their stride. We all ended up having slightly different combinations of courses, but this was all taken in... More

The fresh local food was to die for, typical Italian surroundings, very simple, clean tidy with instant atmosphere when you enter. Staff were very helpful with guidance as to the menu on offer and the service was excellent. We were staying at a Villa nearby and dined at La Cavola every night during our stay, as well as lunch.

We were staying close by and the owner recommended the restaurant and even told us what to order - the food and atmosphere where amazing. I would definitely return if I was in the area. The wine was great too and complimented the food
