Reservations are a must. Do not expect to drop in and be seated without a reservation (I've tried, without success). Have eaten here twice. Spaghetti and Meatballs, Seafood Pasta, Pizza, all very good. Staff was unfailingly friendly, prompt and attentive. Wine prices are very affordable...More

not much to say with this eatery. Menu is unoriginal and uninspiring. The only reason we ate here was because we had a gift certificate. Presentation of food was poor and unappetizing. Food is just average. This place looks and feels like the 1990's including...More

Thought we would take out of town guests, food aficionados, to Cavallo Nero, one of our local favourites. I only looked at the menu for starter, as I knew I would choose the lamb, as I have done on previous occasions. The lamb was tough,...More
