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.

We were on our way to Island of Elba and our friend recommended we stop there for a bite since he had already been in the place a couple of times. What a treat it was. Not only the food, which was a true experience, but the service. We enjoyed it so much that on our way back, without our... More

This restaurant has been a real surprise, the staff is great, we where greated by the owner, a very corteous and professional service. Had a variety of good seafood appetizers and a great pasta. If passing by Orbetello and looking for a good seafood restaurant Il cavaliere is the place to stop.
