Ok Let me start by saying that I have been to this restaurant at least 50 times in the past 3 years.
The quality / quantity of the food is second to none. The prices are extremely reasonable and for the most part you can have a cosy / comfortable lunch / Diner.
The restaurant is adjacant to the Lord Berri hotel and it is not necessarily the "best looking" restaurant in town nor is it located in the "core of downtown Montreal" but that should not stop you from going there.
From the fish, to the steaks, including their Pasta / Pizza, you can't go wrong.
You will enjoy the food no doubt.

My wife and I had been in Quebec (City and Montreal) for almost two weeks and we've eaten at many, many restaurants ranging from the most upscale to local holes-in-the-wall. We decided to try Il Cavaliere based on Trip Advisor recommendations and the fact that this restaurant was right around the corner from our hotel. We were pleasantly surprised! The service was fantastic, the food was above average, and the wine reasonably priced. We started with the Bruschetta for two. The tomatoes were fresh and the bread crispy but not overly hard. We’ve had more, shall we say “exotic” versions of Bruschetta but this was just fine. For dinner my wife had the Gnocchi Gorgonzola. The sauce was excellent; very tasty but not too overpowering and the Gnocchi was clearly homemade; melt-in-your-mouth and delicious, not chewy like the store bought varieties. I had the Campagnola (sausage and peppers) with linguini. Once again, the pasta was excellent and the ingredients perfectly balanced. We went with a liter of the house red wine ($28). It was a standard relatively light bodied Italian red that was really quite flavorful and complemented the meals just fine. We finished the meal with a lemon sorbet (very refreshing), Tiramisu (fair) and two glasses of Sandeman 20 year port. All-in-all we had a terrific meal at a great price and the service was excellent.

Breakfast is the best meal in this restaurant. At dinner I would stay with the more simple dishes.

This is a cute little place on the ground floor of the Lord Berri Hotel which was right down the street from Hotel Champ De Mars where we were staying. We saw the one review on here before we went and my husband joked that it was probably the owner throwing the place a bone lol. But believe us it is really true this is a diamond. We love it and highly recommend it if you are in the Old Montreal area. My husband had lasagna and i had pizza and i have to say it was better than you can even hope for so definitely give it a try.
