If you are visiting Ljubljana and you are craving for some fine Italian cuisine (after you have tried our local dishes:) ) please go to Kaval. You won t be dissapointed.
It is located on the outskirts of Ljubljana - in Brod to be exact (near the motorway to Austria).
Restaurant has a cosy atmosphere with Tuscany written all over the place:) There are two indoor sitting areas and a terrace outside the restaurant. I advice you to make a reservation. It doesn t matter at what time you deside to dine there, it is almost allways full. This is basically the only downside to this restaurant.

There are no downsides when it comes to food. All dishes (and i have tried almost all of them:) ) are really good. You can go for pastas and risottos (portions are a bit small), sea food, steaks or pizzas. You really can t miss. Everything is prepared with care and with attention to detail.

I mostly eat sea food and occasionaly steaks.

Wine selection is also fine. The wine cellar has mostly Slovenian wines that are great and not to expensive. Just be careful to clearly specfiy how much wine do you want to drink. Some waiter will fill up your glass even though you ordered just one glass.

Waiters are friendly and will cater to your every desire.

The menu has not changed for ages. Pizzas are great, in almost all pastas there is cream, steaks are nice, place is often full so you need a reservation. I will return when they update the menu and put some less creamy stuff on the list.
