Dropped into this resturant during a music festival we were catering at. Looked a bit small from the front door but it has a big room to the rear so we just managed to get a table as it was very busy. Service was first class, drinks were reasonably priced and the food was fantastic. Authentic Italian food which is... More

We decided to go Italian so we set off for the Cavaliere. We were ushered to our table. Parousing the menu we all went for a main course with garlic bread. I'll only comment on my meal. Ordered a 660ml bottle of Peroni at £5.95 was nearly a 100% markup on the price you pay in a supermarket. My Pizza... More

We had Sunday lunch here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Food was well presented and delicious, with a good choice on the menu-even suited my husband,who is not a huge Italian fan.Staff were friendly and efficient. Drinks are a bit pricey, but the food is good value for money. Would definately go again

My favourite pizza place. The steak is also cooked perfectly. I've never been disappointed with the food but can be pricey in the evening.

Just looking for something to eat and chanced upon this place, we were unsure if they were still serving food (after 8pm when we arrived) but on asking we were taken through to the lovely restaurant hiding behind the cafe/icecream area. Very good service, took advantage of 2 course evening meal menu - very good value for money and friendly... More

Absolutely lovely lunch, and a complete bargain. 2 course for £7.95, 3 course for £10.95 or a pizza or pasta dishes for only £5. The staff were amazingly friendly. The food was punctual and so tasty. Very generous portions, full of flavour! Would recommend highly. Have also had the weekend menu and dined from the à al Carte menu and... More

Be sure to check the price of all drinks before you order them, a bottle of beer £5.95 just a little shock when the bill arrived.

Hi Jill, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We appreciate all feedback. I have checked your bill from Saturday evening, and it was a 660ml bottle of peroni that was being drunk at your table. The standard bottle of peroni at 330ml is £3.75. If you had two bottles at 330ml, you would have paid £7.50,... More
