For sure one of the best fish restaurants in the area. Especially the antipasti are delicious and very varied. I did not give it full marks because the location is close to the railway and it doesn't have a nice view or pretty exterior. Still manages to be cosy and the service is good. Prices medium-high for the location.

After reading great reviews, I finally decided to try this restaurant. Although 8 was warmly greeted, the rest of my visit was mediocre. The food was good but not memorable and the prices were a little high. I don't mind paying a little more if I can walk away thinking about a fabulous meal. This was so ordinary that I... More

Despite unusual location this osteria serves extremely tasty food accompanied by nice tuscan wines. Perfect for those who like simple environment of the family country house.

This is a fish restaurant. They seem to specialise in tasty fish antipasti. Little dishes which keep coming! The orata, I had, was grilled to perfection and prepared for eating at the table. The staff were attentive and helpful. This place is a pleasure to come to and is air-conditioned. The train station nearby is not a niusance.

We had a late arrival on our first evening in Italy, and this restaurant was close to our first Agriturismo B&B stay. Despite a late arrival they warmly welcomed us. Languagewise we manage in Italy with a mixture of Classic Latin, tourist Italian and moderate Spanish and were delighted to find out that our waiter had spent several years in... More

Well worth coming to this place, a bit out of the way but the food is unbelievably good. If you want true, quality, excellent seafood without all the blabla this is your place. The Caldi, Freddi e Crudi starter is to die for and they just keep coming out with more and more stuff. The Pasta con i Ricci di... More

Eating at the Cavaliere is just a pleasure: Staff is friendly, helpful. They understand the need of families with young children -- and are totally relaxed. Thanks! This time, we all had "Rombo al Isola" as the main course. I've never eaten better traditional fish elsewhere.
