Some of the best pizza I've ever had in my life! Great service and unique, historic atmosphere. One of the only restaurants that stayed open late! Would 100% eat there again.

I have been to the Caveau many times and it never fails to disappoint. The staff are super helpful. We ordered the salmon which was superb. My friend wanted to change the rice option which was no problem. Nice atmosphere. Great food.

Had a small plate of mussels to start and then a beautiful pizza, with a nice bottle of wine. All sensibly priced and beautifully cooked. Just went there on the off chance and was very pleasantly surprised.
