Great casual 'neighbourhood' Italian place

From the authentic Italian decor to fantastic food (pizza, pasta, mussels, calamari) and wine, perfect end to a day for our family on a road trip. Great service and value.

Happened upon restaurant at 9:00 when most places have stopped serving in dalkeith and found a surprisingly sophisticated restaurant with reasonable prices and very good service. I say surprisingly good because I associate good Italian with Little Italy NYC. Remember, I am not a huge world traveler and I wasn't expecting dalkeith to have such a gem.

We had lunch here today from the set menu. Could not fault the restaurant, the service, the quality or the prices. Excellent all round. This is our new local!

Passing through Dalkeith en-route to Edinburgh and was stopped at traffic lights outside. Looked in the takeaway's window and saw a rather interesting wood fired pizza oven - thought I'd try a pizza. Never been in before but it looked busy with locals - usually a sign that the food is up to the mark. First impressions - Management were... More

Recently we have had a few takeaway pizzas and pasta from The Cavaliere. Based on the quality, value and taste I have no hesitation in recommending the takeaway part. I can't speak for the sit down restaurant service but I can only assume the food would be just as good. Local and cheaper than Dominos.
