We had a nice romantic meal here on 30/12/16. We went because of the Tripadvisor reviews which were also reinforced by personal recommendations and weren't disappointed. The Strangozzi con Tartufo was really good and not too heavy. The steak was also really good, we engulfed and had that with truffles too! Some might say that's a bit much but we... More

I have eaten at Il Cavaliere a number of times and, in my opinion, it's the best restaurant in Foligno. It may very well be the best °Umbrian cuisine" restaurant in the area. The food is excellent, prepared without the over-embellishment of many establishments. Service is top-notch: knowledgeable and friendly staff. It's not an inexpensive experience, but I think you...

Mind you, it won't come cheap, but after a dinner here you won't care, because you will agree with me that it was money well spent.

Simply that. Amazing food. Stunning. One of the best meals I have ever eaten. The pasta parcels with cheese and tomato sauce were ridiculously good. The fat covered pork just melted in the mouth. Service efficient but not particularly welcoming or friendly.

We do not eat pork or shellfish, so we cannot comment on that part of the menu, and looking at what was left on the menu, it seemed simple and potentially uninteresting. But when the food came out, it became apparent how incredible simple can be. Our orecchiette pasta with tomato and cheese had fabulous flavor with perfect chewiness and... More

This restaurant was excellent. A lady (I think she is owner of the restaurant) was so polite and her suggestion about dinner was delicious. Also dessert was fantastic. We really did enjoyed about food. It's bit expensive but quality is high.

We had not made any reservations, but were kindly helped to a table in this classy and welcoming restaurant. The food was delicious and represented the authentic Umbrian cuisine. The staff proved to be very courteous and the chef personally came over to ask our opinion. Il Cavaliere is definitely worth going to, we will return!

Had an excellent dinner here after being recommended by our hotel reception. It's a local restaurant not a tourist destination and is tucked behind the main square in the town. The staff had Limited English and the menu is all in Italian which made it fun to order. The pasta is homemade and delicious and the owner had made fresh... More
