Very slow service...food is not warm as should be...when we ordered a T-bone there should be foliage mushrooms but theere are no mushrooms on it. Waiter did not know this. Squids are with no taste. Octopus should be more tender but this depends of person.

Here you can't really miss. A cosy and welcoming italian countryside ambient where I instantly feel ok. Tagliatta is always fine but also cant miss with great pasta or pizza selection. Seasonal offering is worth checking. Reservation recommended.

Rainy night in Slovenia and wanted a nice restaurant to grab a cheap cab to, Kaval was lovely, the ambience was good, the service from our young waiter was great. Steaks and Risotto is what we had and all was delicious. Would go back
