We have eaten here many times and always enjoy both the food and service. A family run business, it is a favorite of people who live in the neighborhood, north of the centro storico.We often see large family groups enjoying a meal together. We were delighted to see the dining room sporting a lovely new wall-covering that gives the room... More

Mostly locals dining here - food was average and staff disinterested as they had other local guests to attend to.

Charming, friendly and delicious family run restaurant outside the city centre of Florence. This is an elegant but unpretentious restaurant where the emphasis is on fresh food, well prepared and with a strong emphasis on regional specialities. Notable local patronage. The vegetable soup was delicious and was followed by a classic and tasty scallope milanese. This is an extremely well... More

We had lunch here, the food is really good, the portions for the first dish a bit small maybe, we had to order a starter after pasta. The starter, a mix of cheese and ham was amazing!! I definitely recommend to order that! The service is friendly, a bit awkward maybe, they probably don't see many foreigners. Overall a great... More

Came to Il Cavaliere on referral from the inn we were staying at. Comfortable traditional restaurant with well prepared food. We arrived late in the evening, and were welcomed in heartily. We had lasagna and the lemon veal, both were excellent. Received a bruschetta appetizer and an apertif on the house. Nice touch.

This terrific restaurant is about a kilometer north of the centro. It is recommended by locals, who value its menu, service and very reasonable prices. For instance: We ordered a bottle of their "house red". It turned to be an exceptional Chianti from Arezzo. And it was only €10! Top that! We ordered entrees such as lasagna, veal chop and... More
