I can't wait to return to this interesting and elegant restaurant. Victoria and Tyler were our servers. Gnocchi was excellent. The Brie with Apple was delicious. Will definitely be returning. And how could I forget the the atmosphere...a beautiful old wooden church with stained glass windows. Definitely come for sunset. The lighting is incredible.

We took my wife out for her birthday to La Cava and were somewhat impressed. I say somewhat because the history of the building was wonderful, the wine and beer list was adequate, the service was somewhat strained and the food was almost perfect. Let me explain the 3 bullet rating. The service was strained because we never knew who... More

We happened upon this nicely appointed Italian restaurant in an old church. Service and food were excellent. Our courses consisted of Caesar salad, pasta with lump crabmeat, and gelato. Salad prepared at our table.

My husband and I were looking for a special place for dinner and discovered this wonderful restaurant set in an old church. The brick work and lovely stain glass windows proved to be the perfect backdrop for great food, attentive service and a wonderful evening.

We dined with a group of six for a special late dinner celebration and this was the perfect locale. The restaurant is in an old church building which adds to the ambience with souring ceilings and stained glass windows, but the nightly specials stand on their own. Don't even bother with a menu, just listen to your professional server and... More

We are always looking for unique restaurants to try when we travel for business. This place is in an old church and has such a special comforting feeling inside. The wait staff is very personal and knowledgeable. The wine selection was a little light on white wines but it was very nice in the reds with some high end bottles... More

What a great find in a relatively small city/town. A true gym in the way they run their business and the location.

Our family dined here for a special birthday, and we were not disappointed. We shared two appetizers, and both were delicious. The Calamari Fritti was the best that I have ever tasted. We each ordered a different entree, some were specials of the day, and everyone was very satisfied with his/her choice. I had Salad Nicoise with Seared Tuna which... More

This converted church provides a perfect setting for one of the few restaurants in town that have figured it out. Great food, personalized service and a good bar and wine list round out the experience .... Not NYC or Charlotte, but head and shoulders over the other higher level offerings in Salisbury.

Went to this place on the recommendation of a local colleague.  The place is located in a former church.  Outside it's nothing to write home about,  but inside it is very intimate and cool with most or all of the stained glass windows still in place.  Arrived early with two work buddies. We were greeted immediately and given a table.... More
