I recently went back to the Cavaliere and spoke to Gemma who listened to what I had to say about my last review and I was given decent answers to the points I put across, I decided to give it another try and glad I did as the food is excellent

Isn't it amazing that nearly every time there's a bad review on this restaurant it mysteriously disappears. One time I posted a negative review and they got it removed on the grounds I was being derogatory to their staff. which was truly debatable. Also being a previous employee I have some wonderful truths about this place which they'd also deny.... More

I ate here almost weekly when I studied abroad in Scotland - living at the Dalkeith Palace. IT was SO delicious and the staff were SO kind!! I remember having mushroom soup that was top notch!

Dear 73 dougal Please let me apologise for any bad service you may have received from our newly refurbished takeaway. As you will have seen it has been extremely busy since reopening, and have had a few teething problems, which can be expected. If there was half your order missing our policy us to deliver direct to you, this has... More

This is a local restaurant that I cannot recommend highly enough. Visited last week and took advantage of the xmas menu. It was my friend's first visit and she cannot wait to return. The food was excellent the staff attentive and the atmosphere relaxed. Together this made for a lovely evening I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Went out here for a meal recently and although the staff were very friendly and attentive my food was terrible. I ordered pizza with spicy chicken and was appalled to see it arrive covered with small cubes of processed "chicken" (if you can call it that) and then smothered in what looked and tasted like chilli oil, so much of...

Thank you for the kind words regarding our staff. Please let me assure you that we use NO processed food on the premises. Our chicken used for pizza is free range chicken breasts from our butcher, which are cooked and chopped & diced on the premises. We use our own spicy sauce to create a spicy chicken which has no...

I have been here twice and on both occasions service has been good. Food is a little expensive for what you get but is always very tasty. Pizza was done to perfection.
