The Cavaliere is without doubt the best Italian restaurant in the area. The staff are very friendly and cannot do enough for you. The food is terrific but they could do with getting a decent lager on board. The restaurant was extremely busy but we didn't have to wait too long between courses. I would highly recommend a visit to this restaurant.

This was the first time in The Cavaliere for a long time and we were very pleased with the food and the polite service given.
The restaurant was very clean as were the toilets (10/10 for that).
Ambience was lovely as the tables were placed as not to intrude on someone else's conversation.
We will certainly be making a return visit soon.

Thank You.

We have been going to the Cavalier for years and have always enjoyed it. My partner and I usual order the same things but decided that we would try something different from the menu and were not disappointed! Another great night

I absolutrly love this restaurant. We go regularly and always go for birthday meals. The staff were so attentive and made this special birthday one to remember.
The food is always very tasty and great portions. The wine list is also lovely and have tried a few different ones and have enjoyed them all.
Already looking forward to our next visit.

This has been one of my favourite restaurants for years because it’s family-run, offers great food and first class service. It has also benefited from a recent refurbishment which means it’s fresher, with a view into the kitchen, but hasn’t lost any charm! The new function suite seems popular too. Highly recommended. The staff can’t do enough to look after you and the food is consistently excellent.

We had lunch at the restaurant and it was lovely, very good value. The waiter was very nice and offered us to taste another white wine from Italy, he wasn't pushy at all, lovely personality. The toilets were spotless and the dining room was beautifull, would be nice to have some round tables though, better for larger parties.

Having never even been to Dalkeith before, I read the reviews for all the restaurants in the area when I was charged with finding somewhere to eat for meeting friends for lunch. Thankfully, we booked The Cavaliere. The front looks very unassuming, but going in, the interior is very stylish and modern. The staff were very welcoming, professional and attentive from start to finish. Food was well cooked and tasted great.

If we are ever back that way , we would definitely go in again.

Big thank you to The Cavaliere.

The Cavaliere is probably our favourite restaurant. The food is fantastic. The staff are amazing. It always feels special. We visit far too often for our pocket but who cares! We always take friends here to dine when they visit. Feels like a second home! Maybe worth getting a loyalty card in place!!
