Pasta lovers will delight in this week's Houston Press Voice Daily Deal, good for half-off ($20 for $40) at Cavatore Italian Restaurant. This 2007 Best of Houston winner (Best Family Restaurant) has been family-owned and operated in the Heights for over 30 years, and boasts a unique charm that, combined with the delicious food, will make you a regular customer. The building Cavatore calls home is a 100-year-old barn, brought from Bastrop, with a décor that marries Texas to Italy with memorabilia collected from travels around Europe's favorite boot.
Among the house-favorite dishes are veal marsala, a Caesar salad prepared tableside, chicken parmesan and lasagna. Gluten-free? No problem: Cavatore Italian Restaurant serves gluten-free pasta. (Whole wheat, too, for you health nuts out there.)
