La zona del Largo delle Marianne, posizionata a ridosso del Lungotevere dei Mellini, si trova a breve distanza da alcuni luoghi della capitale di grande interesse storico ed artistico, come Palazzo Borghese o l’Accademia delle Belle Arti. Qui, a breve distanza da Ponte Cavour, in via Pietro Cavallini c’è il Cavallini food, wine, spirit, un bel locale ideato e strutturato per creare un ambiente accogliente. Il legno recita un ruolo da protagonista grazie alle sedute, ai tavoli ed al bel bancone di colore vedere posizionato all’entrata, e l’insieme degli elementi contribuisce a rendere gli spazi estremamente armoniosi.

La ricerca delle materie prime migliori e della loro freschezza (e conseguente stagionalità) quale punto di partenza per dar vita ad una filosofia culinaria che propone sapori tipici che vengono rivisitati con creatività. Il risultato di tale processo ha dato vita ad un menu che prevede piatti come il “Cubo di manzo, fichi, friseè e grana”, le “Fettuccine al ragu bianco di controfiletto, riduzione di vino e polvere di salvia”, il “Polpo alla griglia con salsa alla luciana, hummus, sedano e pane al carbone” ed il “Parfait al limone e basilico”.

    Very cozy place with excellent food and service. Tar tar and steak of menu “Terra” were exceptional. At some point the course was a little slow, but it didn’t spoil the impression. Very enjoyable dinner, definitely to come back

    A bit overrated given previous evaluation. It is a place with a great atmosphere, but the food is not outstanding. The menu is elaborated with some creative ideas, but the execution is average. The starter we had was baby squid, which were over-fried, tasteless. The pasta with octopus sauce was very good but not exceptional, The service was very good and friendly.

    We had the meat (Terra) tasting menu and every course was wonderful, the textures and flavors were divine. We were also given an extra starter and the duck with crispy skin that I had was wonderful. I also loved the limoncello at the end. Service was excellent too. Grazie mille

    This was an experience at a whole new level, one of the best i've ever had. The staff was super attentive, and since some of the dishes were quite elaborate one of the persons from the staff actually sat down with us to explain the dishes clearly in English (since we don't speak Italian) The environment was very good as well. Well lit, spacious enough that we still had privacy between the tables. On to the food... I had the Cavallini Experience and everything was absolutely amazing... from the perfectly cooked fish, to the sauce reductions, through a fried filled that could lead you to lower expectations but still goes over the top with the siding and again the sauce combination of flavours... Ending with a home-made Tiramisú. All in All, this will be one for the books... (at least mine!) - Definitely recommended if you can afford to spend a little bit more in this!

    Great food, nice service. Research in flavours, design and fantasy. A nice touch of modernity in established classic tastes. Few constructive notes: Cutlery to change and match the style of plates. Wine glasses might be improved.

    I can’t express enough how much we enjoyed our meal & the whole experience. I’ve traveled all over the world and have rarely had wait staff as amazing and our 2 servers. We were all so happy & genuinely touched by their kindness that we have them each €20.

    The Veal dish and Gnocci were awesome! Prices were below average and without asking, the owner took 25% off of the bill because of a slight mishap with the ordering process. We only got one of our two "second" dishes, but, guess what, if we did it would have been toooooo much food. So, we were completely satisfied with our visit! Gratzie!

    Food was really great, we went two nights in a row and between the two of us tried four out of five tasting menus. Would highly recommend, very genuine people, nice wine list, very fair prices. (100 euro for two four course meals and a bottle of wine). Really great experience and place.

    You should know that I never really write restaurant reviews. Like, ever. But I’m making an exception here because I really want this place to do well. It was an absolutely fantastic meal from start to finish. The food tasted perfect (get the carrot flan and thank me later) and was beautifully presented. The server was kind, sincere, and had absolutely no trouble at all speaking to us in English. May end up as my favorite meal in Rome. I don’t think I’ve ever said this about a restaurant before but: this place could charge more.
