The chicken soreento and pasta of the day with meatballs are too choices in our household. I've grown to only like their meatballs over others. They're truly the best! You can also call in your order so it's ready when you arrive which is nice because sometimes the line gets long. This is our favorite weekend lunch spot.

best deli around. Have been going to Cavallo's since I was a kid. Great lunches made hot and great grinders. Also, if you love fresh grated cheese, this is the place to go. East main st.

Cavallo's is a true Old World Italian Deli. The wide selection is always fresh. The staff makes an extra effort to provide quick service. The prices are very reasonable. The food is excellent. They have Daily Pasta Specials and other specials. They carry a nice variety of desserts.

The best grinders and homemade italian specials in town. Always clean, friendly and will make you pretty much anything you want. Blows away the other grinder/sandwich shops in town. Their pasta dishes and sauce are amazing...just like grandmas! Their sandwiches and grinders have the perfect meat to cheese to bread ratio. Their specialty salads are creative and delicious. Prices are... More

You can pretty much order anything here and be happy. I think they have the BEST grinders in Waterbury by a landslide. Everything about it reminds me of my off-the-boat Italian great-grandmother. I love to go in there and grab some nice Italian Imports, some fresh pasta, or some cookies. I could eat here every day if it were possible!... More
