“We loved this restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

We read such wonderful reviews on Trip Adviser that we wanted to come here and were not disappointed at all. Everything we read was true. This is a family run business and they treated us like family. We let them recommend what to order and they kept bringing out food till we could not eat anymore. We will always remember our night here as it was very special. This place gets very busy so you must make a reservation but I guarantee you will not regret it.

“Family style chef's selection great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

6 of us dined at this restaurant recently. We let the owner pick our food. Like all the reviews we were served with beautiful antipasti - three dips- cauliflower, eggplant, and red pepper, the zucchini cheese spread was amazing, generous portions of salami and mozzarella cheese, two kinds of pasta as one of us is vegetarian. The lamb and beef dishes were not as good as other people raved about - meat was a bit tough but he also prepared a great assortment of grilled vegetable dish which was absolutely outstanding- especially the fennel with orange and raisins. Several different varieties of tiramisu for dessert. For all food and wine the bill came to 206 euros for 6. Not bad at all. It's a small place so definitely make reservation beforehand.

“Wonderful! Stop reading, just book a table!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

My husband, my two kids and I had one of the best meals of our lives at Osteria del Cavaliere. We started with some bruschetta, served with four tasty dips and a mixed plate of delicious salami and mozzarella. We then had some wonderful pasta dishes and probably the best steak we have ever tasted. We couldn't believe the bill was so small.

My husband and I have talked about the meal every day since and even said it's worth the flight to Rome JUST for a meal here :)

“excellent italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

we showed up at opening and you can always tell a great restaurant when they argue about you not having a reservation, still get you in and then start turning away people that don't have reservations because they are full (immediately). the dinner was excellent, our waitress was the owners daughter and she was great!! We just let her bring the food and it was great choices. the power did go off for about a minute but after a couple of glasses of wine we didn't care.

PS since we had such a good time they brought out the limoncello liqueur for free. It seemed to be a reoccurring theme with all the restaurants in Rome if they liked you!!

“Best restaurant in a LONG time.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is the best our family has been to for quite some time. Kind people, great atmosphere and delicious food. We had the specialities, meaning some bread with meat and cheese as antipasti, then two great pasta dishes, followed by some very tender skewered lamb meat. The dessert was also really good. Everything was made from fresh ingredients, and the waitress and owner clearly enjoy working there. Make sure to call ahead, because against nine the people started to wait at the door. Also, when we arrived at 8, almost all tables were already reserved. All in all, a delicious experience at a nice place and for our family the perfect way to celebrate the end of our trip in Rome.
