More than just an upscale Italian restaurant, Cavallino Ristorante on Yulong Avenue is a multi-purpose restaurant catering for all functions including weddings. There’s a lot going on at this Terrey Hills family restaurant, ranging from Sunday roasts to pizza-baking classes. With a wine list spanning several pages, Cavallino impresses Sydney’s would-be sommeliers, all the while keeping gourmets satisfied with a menu packed with quality antipasti, homemade pastas, wood-fired pizzas and decadent desserts.
From Monday to Thursday night, Cavallino Ristorante on Yulong Avenue offers some serious discounts on their superlative Italian cuisine. On Monday nights, for example, diners can choose to pay a reasonable fee and have access to as much pizza al taglio (pizza by the slice) as they can eat. Sunday roasts are especially beloved at Sydney’s Cavallino, where diners can enjoy a hearty plate of roast with baked vegetables while listening to live music performed on the restaurant’s garden terrace. And if you’ve been looking for that perfect spot to get married, throw an amazing birthday bash or organize a corporate gathering, it doesn’t get much better than at Cavallino in Terrey Hills. With four separate bookable areas, you can pick the setting that’s right for you, or simply hire out the whole venue, which can accommodate up to 350 guests standing.
Cavallino Ristorante is a foodie paradise, drawing in Sydney’s most discerning gourmands and food critics. Despite its popularity with the gourmet crowd, Terrey Hills’ Cavallino remains down to earth and accessible to any diner that appreciates superb Italian cuisine. The pizzas are incredible, as are the homemade pastas. Try the Calabrese, a pizza topped with mozzarella, ham, Italian sausage, mild salami and olives. If that’s a bit too meaty for your tastes, we recommend the Vegetariana, a pizza that’s covered from edge to edge in mozzarella, mushrooms, eggplant and zucchini. Pasta-wise, you can’t go wrong with the linguine allo scoglio, linguine cooked with prawns, calamari, mussels, salmon, San Marzano tomato and chilli. Don’t neglect to look at Cavallino’s dessert menu – an order of fritelle con Nutella is a sinfully delicious choice. Reservations are an absolute must.
The food and service were excellent. The 3 new owners are a fantastic team. We had the degustazione menu and each dish was superb - it was very good value. The matching wines were also great. I'd highly recommend it.
The cocktails are amazing - try the homemade ginger foam one - you won't regret it! Lovely evening for my daughters birthday - they went out of their way to spoil her plus great food/wine.
Cavallino is a great restaurant for our family gatherings. The food is alway delicious, super friendly staff making us feel really welcome! Thanks Monica we will be back really soon
Food & Service was great, Cavallinos never disappoint. This was a work function and everyone who went there most was the first time said that they really like the place and the food.
Cavallino Ristorante is one of our favorite restaurants in Sydney, we live very close by and have been going there since the early 1990's. Really good quality food for reasonable prices. We always get an entree each and often share a main and my partner loves the dessert s while I enjoy a dessert cocktail. We usually go there every couple of months and at one stage we were there every two weeks. My favorite are the entrees and the cocktails - BEST cocktails! Seems to be extremely popular with families and children during early bookings and holds a lot of functions. I often mention Cavallino to other people and have taken a few friends there over the years and everyone always has positive comments. Staff are also the creme of the crop, very lovely, warm, friendly and professional.
This is our family's favorite local restaurant. The kids can watch the pizzas cook in the wood fired stove, while the grown ups sip the best wines and wait for their meals. Food is fine dining but without pretension. Very welcoming and attentive service. It's taken my daughter a while to let go having a chip pizza every time though! Its a big restaurant but manages to feel cozy, and is especially nice in winter with the log fire. I've come here a few times with mothers group and tried the shared plates, always fabulously tasty.
Cavallino Ristorante is our family's favourite. Helpful and timely table service, a wonderful atmosphere, and the food is not to be beaten! A great place for family celebrations, lunch with family and friends, or a larger function . As close to perfect as any restaurant can be!
The staffs were so friendly. That was the greatest part of the dinner at Cavallino Ristorante. The bathroom could be a lot cleaner. I guess that Saturday night was very busy. I liked the mood of relaxed background by people. - laughing & chatting The dim lights were good too.
Delicious food--nearest to real Italian that I have eaten in Australia. We come all the way from Gosford on the Central Coast to eat there. The service is quick and friendly. Just one improvement to suggest. When people are leaving the staff should acknowledge them and say something like, "It was good to have you with us, we look forward to seeing you again." We are generally ignored as we leave--this is the only aspect that could be improved.
Beautiful looking restaurant, great welcome at the entrance, attentive staff and great pizza. I would have given top marks except the vegetarian pizza was a little lacking in topping (other 2 pizza's our guests had were great) and some of the lights along edges were too dim to be able to see properly and lights in the middle high ceiling were too bright and jarring so I'm being picky on a pet problem with many restaurants, but some more veges and better balanced lighting would have made a very good experience perfect.
