Surprising value for the price

Not a great neighborhood but the food was good, for 10£ you had a very good authentic italian dish (calzone, gourmet pizza, gourmet pasta, etc...)

We were looking for somewhere to eat in Dalkeith and after searching on trip advisor came across this place. Great service, good food at a very very reasonable price! Would definitely eat there again if ever in the area.

Ordered a fish and chip supper, usually this would do the two off us, chip portion was tiny for what other shops offer. Was debating between here and Francos across the road, wish I went to Francos. Staff are polite and shop floor is nice but food ain't so good!

This serves good genuine Italian food at good prices in a convivial atmosphere. No need to go into Edinburgh when you can find it in Dalkeith.

We revisited The Cavaliere again in the hope that our experience would be back to how it used to be. I am delighted to say our meal was excellent this time. The starters were well prepared and tasty (and very filling) and our mains were perfect. I am glad that we went back to try this great wee restaurant again... More

What a find! Starving hungry on way back from the Open and stumbled across this little gem! Friendly, warm waiters who knew their stuff. Clean restaurant with a really lovely Italian ambience! Can't recommend this place highly enough. Food was wonderful and staff were attentive but not in your face. Try it!!

The staff are what made this restaurant stand out for me. Attentive without intruding, friendly and always nearby. We were served by Gian who was such a charming man and very knowledgeable about the wines available. Food, well we ordered a starter each and should have had one between us. There was too much for one person with a main... More

The food and service was excellent and our party (with two small children) was made to feel welcome and the exuberance of the children was facilitated by an exceptional staff who made our visit a treat.

Hi Gareth, if you would be kind enough to tell us when you purchased the pizza, day & time also which pizza was it? Was it collection or delivery, we will check our order system & cctv cameras?
