Description: Cava has established itself as a taste of luxury. An experience of Old world charm and romance, both in its decor and cuisine. Its upscale fine dining experience caters to those looking for an evening out, a special occasion, or private events. The cuisine is authentic Italian, using the finest ingredients. The menu alone exceeds any expectation. The daily additions to the menu, both appetizers and entrees are prepared daily by our executive chef based on the freshest market products. Cava expresses its zest in season, both during the holidays, and on our cocktail list. There's a charm with each season, that should be brought to the table.The luxurious decor reflects the old world charm, with modern nuances. The warm feeling of home, paired with a featured glass of wine is sure to put your mind at ease. Each room has a separate serenity encompassed by different fixtures. The "Fireplace room" and it's cozy, warm candle lit atmosphere will soothe you and your guests after a long day at the office, or for a romantic evening. The "sunroom", filled with light, white linen, and paired with the right company, makes for an impressive room for a private dining, or the right place to impress that someone special. The "sunroom" serves as a private banquet room for all occasions.When the sun sets, and the lights are low the "Main DIning Room" has a grand dining table for occasions with more intimate groups. Everyone can enjoy a cocktail,or glass of wine, at the granite top bar, surrounded by dark cherry wood. There is a more casual atmosphere in the back tavern, with high top tables for a "girls night out" or just a couple appetizers while watching "the game".In addition to the dining experience, the cuisine has upscale items with aged Angus certified steaks, fresh atlantic salmon, pasta dishes, lighter fare, and authentic flavors throughout. Cava strives to leave an impression. The dining experience is that of traditional Italian, perfect for a relaxing meal. Cava is well renowned for elegant private events. Private dining events range from wedding receptions, baby showers, bridal showers, business meetings, cocktail hours, birthdays, rehearsal dinners, holiday parties, and all business functions. Private rooms are available for any events.

Very interesting place. Doesn't look like much on the outside, just a concrete box but when you go in they do make an effort to bring a little nature in. (you'll see when you walk in the door!) Quite an elegant dining room and my pasta dish was delicious. Service was fast. Only issue was that I like a lot of diet soda refills and since they only serve from a single bottle, you are charged for each one.

Just great from start to finish this place is a treat. The food is spectacular and so is the service. Well priced wine list with a nice variety of blends.

We've been to Cava several times because we think it is lovely and the food really special. Tonight not so much. When reservation made we asked for the main room and found ourselves in the back room in a corner with the setting sun blazing in my eyes. Apps were not served hot, bread served as an afterthought and our cocktails served about 15 minutes after we arrived. Our veal chop however was delish with lovely sides. But dessert of Creme brûlée was served with a burnt crust. Maybe just a badly rushed night for the entire staff. Will we give them another chance...maybe after the pain of this anniversary celebration passes.

Just got back from Cava it was very impressive, and the food was fantastic. The service was great. Would highly recommend the calamari and lasagna. Can't wait to go back!

Everytime I drive by this place the parking is always packed which is a good sign. Went to celebrate my wifes birthday with family and friends this past tuesday and we were all very pleased. The staff was friendly and worked together as a team making sure everyone in my party was satisfied. The food was great and portions were generious. Best risotto I've had in a long time. The atmosphere was nice and cozy. They sent all 10 of us a champagne cocktail for my wife's birthday which were delicious. I will definitely be going back soon!
