“Best espresso smoothie in town”
Reviewed 6 July 2013

Calvino's is a great secret in C-ville, tucked next to Feast off West Main. Their espresso-Nutella smoothie is PHENOM, and the fresh paninis are good too.

“Best place in town for Chai Tea!”
Reviewed 18 November 2012

I had the opportunity to visit Calvino Italian Bar and Eatery on West Main Street in Charlottesville recently for a business meeting. I selected the venue, not only for its convenience, but also for their wonderful chai tea.

It had been some time, maybe even a year since I had been to Calvino, but the most recent visit did not disappoint. The tea was so good that it did not need any sweetener (I tend to have a sweet tooth). And although it was 9 am on a weekday morning, we were able to easily find a table and have a leisurely conversation, not having to shout over each other. Although I've not eaten there, I assume the food is good.

I highly recommend Calvino; it's a great place all around!
