“Nice local place that should not be overlooked”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

A friend and i went to La Caverna for a catch up night and this was a good place mid-week, not overpowered by loud music.
Quite a good menu, old favorites and if i had a complaint it would be that this could be updated a bit.
The food arrived piping hot and was better than the chains the likes of Prezzo and Cafe Rouge.
They put the effort into the food and not the decor which i prefer as i do not wish to eat the furniture!

“Home Made Authentic Italian Pizza”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

I have visited this restaurant for many years and have always enjoyed their homemade pizzas. The restaurant can get very busy on a Friday and Satuarday and the service can then be slow...But if you sit back relax and enjoy the experience you will not be disappointed. I would recommend the mussels for starters!!!!

“Another lovely meal”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

We went into La Caverna for dinner last night as we have a friend staying for the week. He requested that we visit as he'd enjoyed it last year. As ever we were all warmly greeted by the owner and swiftly served with our drinks.
We chose to have a main portion of Calamari between us as a starter. Beautifully tender, hot & tasty and soon polished off! For mai I had Linguine Ioniche, strings of flat pasta with salmon and mushrooms in a creamy sauce, delicious. Husband had his fave pasta, Penne all’ arrabbiata and our friend had Spaghetti alla carbonara. We shared garlic bread and tomato and onion salad.
We ate early, just after 6pm, and were the second table of diners, but by the time we left La Caverna was over half full and buzzing, not bad for a Tuesday evening.
It's always a pleasure to dine here and locals know why it's still a success after 30 years in the same place.
