This is a wonderful neighborhood Italian restaurant in The Heights. There is live piano music and singing on some nights. The food is scrumptious and service is friendly. Make sure and try the Caesar salad for two. It is prepared table-side.

We went for valentines day and the place was packed. However, the service was good, the staff was friendly, and the food was excellent. I've never been disappointed at this restaurant. I love the pizza and the ravioli.

When I worked closer to the location, I enjoyed Cavatore's as one of my favorite Houston restaurants for a business lunch or a special occasion. Although it had been several years since I had been there it didn't take a second "ask" to say yes...More

We had Caesar Salad and Fettuccini Alfredo Con Pollo. The salad was made in front of us and was the best Caesar salad we've ever had. The Texas barn / Italian decoration combo is such a great atmosphere for an equally great meal.
