Last week I went to Cafe Cavallino on Lygon st to get my Italian fix. Having been here once before (a very very long time ago) I wasn’t sure what to expect. However, I was craving something substantial and ordered the Fettuccine Carbonara (sorry hips!). It was very very rich and perhaps I should have ordered the entree as the main seemed a bit over the top – even though I managed to chow down the whole thing.
For desert I shared Marroncino (mint and chocolate gelati) – even though I was far from hungry. The ice cream was not so good and with the expansive selection of good gelati places on Lygon st, I would have preferred to have gone elsewhere (or had none at all since I was already bursting at the seams!).
This place is pretty good, but being spoilt for selection in Lygon st, I would be hesitant to return again even though my pasta was pretty good , it wasn’t anything particularly special.
