I went to La Caverna for a dinner date with my boyfriend. He had made a reservation which we were very late for. We arrived there at about 9:30pm and was greated by a nice young man with menus in hand. Apart from us there was one other couple there enjoying a meal, but it was Tuesday night!
The inside is quite nice, and I can imagine would have a nice atmosphere if it were more full of people. The tables have really cool little fish tanks sunk into them with a couple of tiny fish inside. There was nice music playing in the background, I can't quite remember what but it suited the mood for sure.
We ordered a nice bottle of Valpolicella for the meal and it arrived after two glasses of iced tapwater which we didnt ask for but was appreciated. For starters we ordered the Chicken Wings and Calamari. I'm a huge calamari (and any fish) fan and these were delivered in a short time and were perectly cooked, placed on a bed of green salad with a beautiful lightly spiced tomato sauce for dipping. A winner for me-only complaint was there was not enough of them! I don't eat wings but after finishing my calamari so quickly I indulged in one or two, a good sized portion which my dining partner thoroughly enjoyed with a nice blue-cheese dressing.
For main courses, we enjoyed a t-bone steak and a venison steak. Unfortunatley, despite the venison being cooked and served as I had requested the t-bone was more than slightly over cooked (we asked for meduim and got welldone). These were served with a side of garlic gratin potatoes which were delish and not a morsel left behind.
We didnt stay for dessert as we were already late (not that we were being rushed because the staff respectfully gave us as much space and privacy as we could have asked for) but there were some cocktials to be had elsewhere.
Would I recommend it as a great place to eat? Good but not great, but yes, worth venturing in to try it for yourself. I would however, recommend you avail of the early-bird menu as the pricing on there is more appropriate to the product. The days of charging €24 for a steak and over-cooking it are gone and on a table for two you could easily save yourself about €40!
