This was my first visit to Trattoria Cavallo Nero in Ancaster, and it was, overall, a good evening. The food is outstanding, and someone clearly put some imagination into the menu creation. There is a decided Italian flavour to the choices, but they do step outside the classic definition with some of the selections. Our appetisers were delicious, and the... More

The parking is free and lots of room, the greeting at the door is warm and friendly, the atmosphere is great. The service is perfect and the choice of food is awesome along with the prices.

The restaurant lacks ambience due to bright white walls and poor lighting. This did not however deter from an excellent dining experience. The service was excellent, well paced and knowledgable. The food was incredible. We had goat cheese croquettes to start and Gorgonzola pasta with chicken for our main. Delicious flavours and both meals I have never seen anywhere before.... More

My husband and I had dinner here while in town for a wedding. It was also our anniversary. It's a very busy and noisy place so don't expect to have a nice quiet conversation. We shared a ravioli appetizer which was very good. Our main courses however were just okay. My husbands steak arrived cold and although they got him... More

Excellent service and appreciated the bread at lunch (even though normally a dinner item only) for a hearty birthday lunch! Ordered the roasted cauliflower, calamari and caesar salad for apps and then the beef rib ravioli, steak frites and lasagna for mains. Everything was delicious. Red wine reduction with the ravioli was meaty and rich and went fantastic with a... More

We had a lovely lunch at Cavallo Nero on a hot summer day. We started out sitting on the patio but it was too sunny and the bees were out and around us a bit too much, so we moved inside. Two of us ordered specialty salads and one ordered the grilled cheese and soup combo. The food was delicious.... More

Good contemporary design and vibe with very good live music duo so appropriate for the jazz feel of the restraint.

We had dinner for six on Sunday September 12. All appetizers and entrées were excellent. The vegan order of pasta was a bit oily but still very good. The waitress, Grace, did a great job. She was very attentive and assured us that any special requests were able to be met. Everyone enjoyed the meal and the service!
