Ultimate Italian experience!

Osteria del Cavaliere - one of the best restaurants I've gone to in Italia! 5 stars on yelp, a little hole in the wall restaurant in Rome. We had bruschetta with a variety of spreads, potato gnocchi with smoked salmon, a kind of wine made in the region, a homemade (our lovely waitress' mother's... read more

The resto is situated in the basement. The pasta was very good and the seafood fresh. We were served fast (less than 10min).

Big portions of excellent italian food. Friendly staff! No tourist prices. A bit faraway from metro (Re di Roma) if you're not staying in some hotel nearby, but worth to visit anyway.

What an absolute gem. The food was great, the drink was great. The whole experience was great. I could not have expected more. The food and drink sell themselves, they are great, however, the young lady host, was truly brilliant and beautiful. She helped with the ordering of the food and was spot on in her recommendations. The best meal... More

In a week of dining in Rome, this confirmed our belief that the most enjoyable experiences were in restaurants run by women. Although the woman overseeing the restaurant said it's owned by someone else, she clearly put her stamp on the place. It's in a residential neighborhood far from the tourist center of Rome - thank goodness! As a result,... More

We visited the restaurant because of the many and mostly very good ratings. I have to say that my expectations have not been met. The pasta we had was okay-ish but not exceptional and way overprized compared to similar restaurants in Rome. The restaurant was packed with tourists, no Italians could be seen. I would not recommend this restaurant to... More

Went on recommendation of our hotel of where they go for great food. Reservations are a must as this is a very intimate place. Fortunately, our hotel was able to get them for us. Food was terrific as was the service. The servings were generous. If in Rome, you must come here.

We tried this restaurant on the reccomendation of our Hotel and following the advice of some American guests who had been the night before. My husband is vegetarian and in spite of the website saying they catered for vegetarians the menu was almost all meat. They offered to do spaghetti with tomato sauce, but that's a bit like being offered... More
