the Cavaliere has been very nicely refurbished since our last visit, but it has kept all of its charm , good food and excellent staff. We were there for a wedding anniversary so opted for the specials and we were not disappointed. The wine we selected was not at all expensive but was really nice .. and we perhaps had... More

Walked in on a Tuesday night, without reservation. We started with Antipasto, which was excellent, and a bottle of Chianti. I had the lasagna, and my wife the cannelloni, with the cannelloni being the better of the two, but both excellent. Waitress, was very nice, and food was very good. After everything about 60 pounds.....

Just would like to say. Thank you for a wonderful meal. The service is just right. Friendly and there, but not in your face. If we are in the area again, will definitely return. What was very noticeable is you have lots of regular customers who you know well. That's always very reassuring when you are in a restaurant for... More

Staying locally and exploring Edinburgh we decided to eat in Dalkeith for evening meal. Cavaliere did not disappoint. The reception as we arrived was warm and friendly. The restaurant itself was clean and staged Italian, music for authenticity too. We were seated and order taken. The pizza's are amazing. Very very large, lots of toppings and the taste was out...

Our local weekly news paper advised that a well known/established eatery had under gone a Major refurbishment and that itself was worth visiting to see the transformation of the premises. Decided that as the food had always been good and value for money decided to take a friend for Sunday lunch...my nose was bothering me... The front of the restuarant... More

I was invited to a friends Birthday meal with her family. The restaurant has been recently refurbished to a beautiful high standard, with a bar area as you enter, leading to a light elegant eating area, and a soon to be finished function area. The menu was very varied. From a two course bargain meal, to 'a la carte, or... More

We visited the Cavaliere on Dalkeith's High Street in a family group at the recommendation of friends - a completely refurbished interior (and kitchen I'd guess). The welcome from the mainly Italian staff and owner was very warm though it's at least 2 years since our previous visit. A fairly comprehensive menu included mostly authentic Italian dishes with options for... More
