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.

Hi Jamesnatrobyn, I am sorry to hear you were disappointed in the service from the takeaway. We do not offer a hamburger chip roll on our new menu. You should have received a hamburger roll with a full portion of chips for this price. Please contact me directly with your delivery or collection details and I shall arrange a refund... More

We chose this restaurant in Dalkeith as its the only one we have not been :) from the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we felt like valued customers.

Having attended a Birthday Celebration meal at this restaurant, I felt compelled to highlight my disappointment. Whilst I appreciate catering for 40 people is a challenge, if it is booked in advance, the staff should be well prepared. The courses all came at different times, food had obviously been sitting under a warmer of sorts, and to have to keep... More

Hi George, Many thanks for taking the time to write a review regarding your experience at the 18th birthday party. As you have stated catering for a large party of people can be very difficult. It is impossible to serve 50 guests at the exact same time having a la carte. The organisers of the party, were made aware of... More

Hi V Melville, Many thanks for taking the time to review our takeaway. We have always only ever given a can of juice with each size of combo box, as the only difference is the size of the pizza, the pakora's, chips and doner meat is still the same quantity for both. As I explained on the phone to you,... More

If it's not deleted a bad review gets rubbished by some wild allegation.

I read another reviewer tell of bad reviews being deleted. What is the point of having a site like this is customers bad experiences are censored and only good reviews are allowed to remain? My complaint was about the poor service I had received from this restaurant and how a member of staff spoke to me (after I had telephoned... More

HI Beth, I feel that it is unfair for you to review, stating that all negative reviews are deleted!!!! If you read the review which you are talking about, it is an ex-member of staff whom was sacked for gross misconduct, in revenge! there are a few negative reviews, however we always try to rectify any mistake on our part....
