La Cava Restaurant
Cuisine: Italian
Gian Moscardini
329 South Church Street Salisbury, NC 28144 704-637-7174
We would like to invite you to join us for a truly unique dining experience of Italian and Continental cuisine. Founded in 1994 by Gianni and Mona Moscardini, La Cava offers dining in a magnificent church circa 1987. Most of the original structure still survives and gives diners at La Cava a wonderful experience that they won't soon forget. For the special enchanted evening with the special "someone", reserve our wine alcove, which housed the original alter. Our wine cellar is stocked with vintage wines from the world's finest vineyards. Our old-world atmosphere and our well- trained staff will make a unforgettable dining experience

Chef Gian-Mauro Moscardini was born in Long Island, New York. He moved to Italy as small child and began his journey into the world of food. Under the guidance of his grandmother Gian made his first tortellini. To this day the inspiration of his grandmother's kitchen is in all that he creates. The family moved back to the states when Gian was a young adult. He went on to spend the next few years honing his skills at restaurants in Charlotte and Lake Norman, NC and Las Vegas, Nevada. Under multiple chefs with different levels of education and experience Gian developed a style all his own.
