My wife and I had a lovely meal at this popular Italian restaurant in Lygon St, an area very well served by Italian restaurants. We both had great homemade pasta parcels with traditional sauces. The ambience was lovely sitting out in the street under the patio heaters.

Went to Cafe Cavallino after being recommended by numerous friends. Ordered a lasagne (which is huge) but tasted pretty bland and had a number of large inedible burnt pasta sections. I would have given this a lower rating but the other dinners at the table seemed to be of a very high quality.

Also had to ask three times for our beverages which edventually came half way through the main course (that we had ordered at the start).

Atmosphere here is very good. Sat outside under a heater and Lygon street is always very busy and bustling.

I would not visit it again but do feel that I potentially got it at a 'bad' day due to the other dinners at the table being much better than my one.

We started with some bruschetta with prosciutto- amazing! Then we had pasta which was delicious and came in quite large portions. Service was fast and friendly, and being Friday night there was a great atmosphere. It was reasonably priced.

Called into Cafe Cavallino after seeing a show. THe friendly staff and streetside dining experience had a real buzz and made this short visit fun and interesting. The food was fresh and hot when served so the whole experience was very nice.

WE walked up and down Lygon street and there were people at every restaurant pressuring you to come and eat but in front of this one, there was no pressure. There were a lot of people on the sidewalk tables. We have learned that this is the sign of a good restaurant. IF the restaurant is empty, there is a reason it is empty. The spaghetti with seafood and white wine sauce was oh so good
