About The Cavaliere

Having evolved from humble beginnings as a fish and chip shop, The Cavaliere Dalkeith is now an Italian restaurant that we just love. In the heart of Dalkeith right on the High Street, The Cavaliere Italian restaurant has been run by the same family for over 50 years and the menu, even today, continues to make waves across this part of Scotland. You can expect daily fish specials, homemade pasta and authentic pizza done to perfection in a log-fired oven. All of that is complemented by an impressive wine selected by hand from only Italian vineyards so there’s very little not to love. Dalkeith may be a small town but The Cavaliere Italian restaurant is always full so reservations are essential.

Lovely food. Excellent service. We have been customers for many years and have never yet been disappointed. Good choice of menu and always interesting specials. We went there tonight to celebrate our 53rd wedding anniversary.
