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!

Friendly welcome from the staff, generous portions and tasty food made this a pleasant evening for our group.
We were first to arrive in the restaurant at 7.45 and were the only ones there until we left at 10.00. However, despite the lack of other diners the atmosphere was warm. The food was excellent apart from the vegetables which obviously had been in cold storage. That was understandable that they were not freshly cooked bearing in mind we were the only ones there. Service was fine - friendly and efficient and the profiteroles were a work of art.
Very friendly efficient service great location limited choices on menu though
