We had a very nice evening at Il Cavaliere. First of all, the service was excellent with the waitress being very attentive, friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable about all of the dishes on the menu.

The Saltimboca was prepared well and the accompanying sauce was excellent. The salad was very crispy and the vinaigrette dressing was perfect. Pumpkin soup was delicious. The big hit in my opinion was the wild berry "Gratin di Frutti di Bosco". It was clearly made to order and took great expertise and care. That was outstanding!

Last Friday night and I got lucky! Not only did I get a table without a reservation, but served immediately. This is a small, very cozy and warm place. The background music was superb. I enjoy a quiet meal and that is exactly what I got. I started with the minestrone which was excellent. I love fish and ordered a whitefish which was served with roasted potatoes, asparagus,carrots in a light garlic butter sauce. Heaven in mouth! Desert of forest fruits with ice cream was quite nice. I visit Warsaw on a year and will definitely will be back.

Very friendly restaurant, with engaging atmosphere and reasonable prices, both for meals and wines. The menu is typical Italian, including good pizza and pastas. Very friendly and quick service.

Ate here on valentines evening after reading all the praise for this restaurant. I really don't understand how people have given it such good reviews, sorry to say that i don't think they know what Italian food is.
I don't know were to start. OK, firstly, Food. I took beef carpaccio with parmesan whilst my partner had pumpkin soup. The pumpkin soup had little if no taste of pumpkin, just stock and cream. Whilst my parmesan, wait sorry aged cheddar... the olive oil used on the dish was also not of good quality. Mains, Veal dumplings & mushroom risotto/saffron. My veal was under seasoned and tomato sauce tasted as if it came out of a jar. My partners risotto lacked the taste of good quality mushrooms & no saffron. (As a test i prepared this exact dish on the Sunday after our visit and i myself prepared a better dish). Dessert, Tiramisu & Zabaglione. The biscuits in the tiramisu were of poor quality and had been brushed with coffee (not dipped/soaked). Zabaglione was too loose and lacked sweet wine flavour.
The atmosphere was dire and staff didn't seem interested, they messed our bill up and had to ask what we had ate. Good job i'm an honest person as i could have saved on what we had paid.
No it's not the most expensive place but i have paid similar for much better quality food and service.
