A favorite among aficionados of Italian cuisine in the Finsbury Park area as well as a hotspot for football fans who pop in for a feast before a big game at the nearby Arsenal football stadium, Il Cavaliere serves up an array of Italian favourites, from pizza to pasta, meat and seafood dishes. With its traditional decor, cosy setting and spacious dining area, Il Cavaliere is perfect for a family meal or group dinner. Begin your meal with some camembert fritti (deep-fried breaded camembert served with gooseberry preserve) or a bowl of hearty minestrone soup before moving on to some pizza or a classic pasta dish. To guarantee a table at this popular restaurant on Blackstock Road, we recommend making a booking in advance – especially on a match day!
An absolute gem. Food is wonderful and the owner and staff are so friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble. Well worth a visit.
One of the best Italian restaurants I've been to in London. The food was wonderful and authentic. The owner/chef couldn't have done more to make our evening special. What a great find.
Great Place to meet and have a meal before a Arsenal game. Food consistently good, staff are very friendly and service great. Would recommend this place.
Have recently discovered this superb local Italian restaurant just south of Finsbury Park. Owner and chef Antonio (a welcoming and lovely man) runs his restaurant in a traditional manner, with delicious food served in a calm and delightful setting. A wonderful place to linger over fine food and a bottle of wine.
This is by far the best tasting Italian I have had. And I have had many. The service here is also great. Il Cavaliere is an intimate spot with a very personable environment and the owner is a fantastic host.
A good Italian menu and excellent food. Vegetables are in season and freshly prepared. The selection of deserts (if one can manage one) is limited but real 'home cooking'. Very approachable and friendly owners
Very friendly place to eat, all the food was cooked fresh for us by the owner and the staff were all helpful. We had the match day menu and nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely go there again.
Had a great night out, small authentic restaurant. Food was lovely along with the owner who made the effort to come out to have a chat with us. I would definitely recommend this restaurant .
A really warm welcome received from the friendly owner and delicious homemade pasta. This restaurant is very reasonably priced compared to others in the area.
The dishes were authentic and we enjoyed them. A bit too salty to our liking - not sure if that's just how italian dishes are.
