There’s nothing better than Italian cuisine for a big comforting feed, now is there? The Italians know how to live their lives to the fullest, and Cafe Corvina on Grahams Road in Falkirk town centre celebrates la dolce vita in all its grandeur (and its carbohydrates!). Cafe Corvina, which opened in 2016, is in a space where two previous Italian restaurants were located before it, but this beauty is here to stay thanks to Gianni and Tony Crolla, two dedicated co-owners who have been in the Italian restaurant business for over 20 years.
But enough about the history of the place, what about the food?! This Falkirk town centre establishment prides itself in using only the best, top-quality ingredients both locally-sourced and imported from Italy. Their a la carte menu is seriously extensive with seafood and steak on offer, as well as vegetarian and gluten free options. So whether you feel like a pizza, some stuffed mushrooms, calamari, spaghetti carbonara or veal, you will be sure to find something that entices you on Cafe Corvina’s menu. We recommend kicking things off with some antipasto to share with some of their spectacular foccacia before moving on to a main course of Involtini di Vitello – veal stuffed with provolone cheese and fresh oregano, wrapped in pancetta and served on marinated tomatoes with a Napoli reduction. Mouth-watering stuff!
From start to finish, everything was perfect. Lovely staff, amazing drinks, beyond amazing food and the atmosphere was brilliant! I have told everyone about this place because I will 100% be back!
Service is outstanding and food is brilliant. We had a family meal all enjoyed starters particularly the anti pasta starter of hams etc. the carpaccio and mushrooms also delicious. I had spaghetti bolognese, my sister in law asked them to make her a mushroom stroganoff which they happily accommodated, penne norcina for my husband and chicken balmoral for my brother in law, all were delicious. The men enjoyed 2 bottle of the recommended wine too. Brilliant night, brilliant staff and brilliant food. See you all soon.
We had a great meal as always. The service and staff are so nice and friendly. Looking forward to the next time we book a table
Very nice staff and furnishings; but it’s a restaurant, so it’s all about the great food! Every course was a winner; we’ll be back! Fantastic
First visit to Cafe Corvina for my daughter's belated birthday lunch. Party of 4 @ 12.30pm. Interior of the restaurant is lovely and plenty of privacy with large round booths, regular booths and standard tables. Extensive menu, and our food was delicious can't fault any of it. Unfortunately the service was terrible, waiters hard to get hold of, didn't want to talk or interact with us. Covered my daughter's dress with parmesan cheese when grating it on her pasta. We had to order our coffees twice as they forgot about it! So our 2 course lunch took nearly 3 hours! We like to take our time but this was just ridiculous. Waiters too busy waiting on a couple of tables of young ladies having cocktails etc to bother with us. We enjoyed the food but ultimately service is equally important, we won't return.
Have knocked off a couple of points - not for the food or staff but the fact the restaurant has craftily changed the time of its lunch deal which caught us out. There has always been a three course lunch and early evening meal which ran right through Saturday service eg from 12-6 pm. Now this stops at 230 pm. Booked for 4 pm not having triple checked the small print and the deal is not on - the restaurant was a lot quieter than when we went a few weeks previously around the same time. Cutting the deal could be a false economy - had it been on we may well have ordered wine and actually spent more than we did. That said we opted for pizzas with a side order of really good home cooked chips and garlic mayo. Excellent espresso afterwards too. Pizzas were excellent light as feathers and full of flavour - and we will certainly come back soon probably either over lunch or for a full blown evening blow-out. Very good staff and service, very good ambience - love watching the chefs at work in the open plan kitchen and nice relaxed feel.
Cafe Corvina was very nice the staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was very nice indeed Although they made a mistake with my friends choice they made up for it with attentiveness
Dine regularly at Cafe Corvina and have never been disappointed. Very pleasant staff. Early dinner menu very good value with plenty choices. Would highly recommend Cafe Corvina
This was our first visit and won’t be our last. From entering the restaurant the service was impeccable. The staff were very attentive. The restaurant was immaculate and although very busy we were seated and served quickly. The food arrived swiftly after if ordering and was absolutely delicious. I would highly recommend that you give cafe corvina a try as you won’t be disappointed.
Very very nice But we had 2 tables of ten and twelve people right next to us who were so loud we could not hear each other even though we were sitting just a couple of feet away therefore we cut the evening short NO PUDDING OR COFFEE! when we come back we will ask for a quiet corner I will also think twice about the calzone first time ever i ve had chilled sauce over a hot deicious calzone and I have had three here previously all hot and delicious but otherwise top class
