Just ate my delicious leftovers from last night’s outstanding meal at CAV.
Home made pasta with lobster and English peas .
My husband had duck in a blood orange sauce which he adored. Our friends are kosher with other food allergies and CAV’s server and kitchen handled it with grace.
We enjoyed our quirky table with antique chairs under shimmering chandeliers.
Begin the meal with their outstanding crab cakes!
I am looking forward to returning.
I mention accommodating, because the maitre went beyond duty and secured us a last minute reservation, 3 days before the holiday weekend and Brown reunuin.

Celebrating mother’s day with family. We found a new fave restaurant in providence area. Calamari for starters was delicious; not too breaded which is good. Had the scallops and shrimp with risotto; good overall but I didn’t fall in love with the risotto though. My husband had the filet mignon; he was definitely in heaven and was complimentary twice over with the mash potato - so silky and delicious. The kids had usual fare - pasta with red sauce and chicken caesar salad; good kids options. Dessert - tiramisu, cookie (to die for says our 13 year old), and creme brûlée (to die for says my husband). Great service, lovely ambience. Definitely a treat; must try other entrees next time!

I went here with a few friends to celebrate a birthday, food was great, service was good, the restaurant is very nicely decorated, lots of antiques, we all had different poached egg plates all were yummy and we split a bruschetta to start it was delicious.

We were a party of three that visited Cav this past Saturday evening for dinner. Everything was delicious from start to finish! The lamb shank entree was delicious and perfect cooked. Our waitress Courtney was very friendly and knowledgeable about what Cav has to offer. We all left Cav thinking about the next time we will return.

My husband and I came to CAV to celebrate our anniversary and were very happy with the service and with our meals. We had an octopus appetizer that was a special for the day, and it was among the best octopus dishes we’ve had. It’s hard to make a tender and flavorful octopus but CAV did a great job. We each had the tuna entree and it was cooked extremely rare, which is how we like it, and was delicious. Our server was very friendly and helpful.

Also, CAV itself is a joy, with antiques and decor that are such fun.
