I live in the Lexington area and have wanted to eat at this place for years but never had the chance. When I got the chance for a business dinner, I jumped at it! It was simply wonderful. Of course I suggest the specials. I had the red snapped. They de-boned it at the table. Can't wait to go back!... More

We visited with my husband's company for dinner with a group of 12. Our large group was one of only two parties in the restaurant the entire time we were there, yet we found the service somewhat lacking. When gratuity is automatically added to large parties, you expect top notch service. Several people in our party had to ask for... More

This restaurant was once a church. It was renovated in to a restaurant. The stain glass windows add to the atmosphere along with the dark wood that frames the windows, doors and openings. I can't remember exactly what I ate there last as I have eaten there many times. It was Italian cuisine and it was delicious. Their desserts are... More

I can't wait to return to this interesting and elegant restaurant. Victoria and Tyler were our servers. Gnocchi was excellent. The Brie with Apple was delicious. Will definitely be returning. And how could I forget the the atmosphere...a beautiful old wooden church with stained glass windows. Definitely come for sunset. The lighting is incredible.

We took my wife out for her birthday to La Cava and were somewhat impressed. I say somewhat because the history of the building was wonderful, the wine and beer list was adequate, the service was somewhat strained and the food was almost perfect. Let me explain the 3 bullet rating. The service was strained because we never knew who... More

We happened upon this nicely appointed Italian restaurant in an old church. Service and food were excellent. Our courses consisted of Caesar salad, pasta with lump crabmeat, and gelato. Salad prepared at our table.

My husband and I were looking for a special place for dinner and discovered this wonderful restaurant set in an old church. The brick work and lovely stain glass windows proved to be the perfect backdrop for great food, attentive service and a wonderful evening.

We dined with a group of six for a special late dinner celebration and this was the perfect locale. The restaurant is in an old church building which adds to the ambience with souring ceilings and stained glass windows, but the nightly specials stand on their own. Don't even bother with a menu, just listen to your professional server and... More

We are always looking for unique restaurants to try when we travel for business. This place is in an old church and has such a special comforting feeling inside. The wait staff is very personal and knowledgeable. The wine selection was a little light on white wines but it was very nice in the reds with some high end bottles... More

What a great find in a relatively small city/town. A true gym in the way they run their business and the location.
