This is a fish restaurant. They seem to specialise in tasty fish antipasti. Little dishes which keep coming! The orata, I had, was grilled to perfection and prepared for eating at the table. The staff were attentive and helpful. This place is a pleasure to come to and is air-conditioned. The train station nearby is not a niusance.

We had a late arrival on our first evening in Italy, and this restaurant was close to our first Agriturismo B&B stay. Despite a late arrival they warmly welcomed us. Languagewise we manage in Italy with a mixture of Classic Latin, tourist Italian and moderate Spanish and were delighted to find out that our waiter had spent several years in... More

Well worth coming to this place, a bit out of the way but the food is unbelievably good. If you want true, quality, excellent seafood without all the blabla this is your place. The Caldi, Freddi e Crudi starter is to die for and they just keep coming out with more and more stuff. The Pasta con i Ricci di... More

Eating at the Cavaliere is just a pleasure: Staff is friendly, helpful. They understand the need of families with young children -- and are totally relaxed. Thanks! This time, we all had "Rombo al Isola" as the main course. I've never eaten better traditional fish elsewhere.

We really enjoyed our meal at Il Cavaliere. The service was warm and hospitable, and we were well-guided to excellent choices of fresh fish and pasta starters. The restaurant is located in a pleasant area of summer cottages and villas.

For nearly the past 30 years, Il Cavaliere has been the best fish restaurant I have ever been to. Every dish is worth trying. Recommended MUST HAVEs are the spaghetti a la chittara a la pescatore (home made spaghetti) and the fish "Spigola".

I've been dining at Il Cavaliere for the past 20 years and despite the incredible success that this place had, quality, service and prices are all the same. I reccomend pasta couses (gnocchi with sea food are amaizing) and fried tiny calamari. Don't expect a fancy restaurant, this is a very simple place between the railways and the Aurelia, but... More

The food was very good: besides a spaghetti alle vongole we had a grilled fish and it was really fresh, perfectly cooked and salted and very savoury; the service was very fast. A nice surprise, we'll come back.

It's not in front of the sea, but the atmosphere is super nice and the food is wonderful. The service is very good. try the spaghetti pescatora, I'm Italian.
