Ate here over the Christmas period, as well as numerous times before that. Consistently delicious food with lovely atmosphere. One of the best places to eat in Dorchester

“Terrific.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

We were recommended by a friend, and weren't disappointed. It was a gorgeous Italian meal. Eating the cannoli siciliani was like being in Catania all over again. Beautiful food excellently executed. Bravo!

“The most beautiful meal ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

Even on the phone, the staff were polite and very friendly. On arrival, all of the people there were happy and helpful and made us feel very welcome. The steak and the lasagne were out of this world, and the magic performed by Mr Chef was nothing short of a miracle, each mouthful being a treat and full of delight. The only sad moment of the evening was when my plate was empty. The profiteroles and pudding dishes were presented gorgeously and being full would not let me stop enjoying my meal, for it is rare that an occasion arises when food is this good. The washing up done by Rob was crystal clear and made the evening glisten and the service from Emily and the other waitresses was polite, friendly and informative. I look forward to visiting again soon for a very reasonably priced night out.

“Italian at its best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

We chose La Caverna after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. A charming cellar setting with very friendly and attentive staff. The menu was varied and imaginative with a great specials board. I chose the duck salad to start followed by the salmon pasta and both dishes were well prepared with imagination and flair. The duck was particularly tasty with peppers and orange. My only advice would be to go a little bit lighter on the oil but apart from that an excellent meal. The house wine was also to a high quality and very good value. The bill when it arrived was very reasonable compared to London prices at a similar standard. Highly recommended.
