A word from Caravaggio New York
On July 15th, 2009, Caravaggio, opened its doors to New York City for the first time. Located at 23 E. 74th Street, the Bruno brothers' latest cutting-edge concept carries on the long-lived family tradition of serving great food to our devoted patrons and to the greater New York area.

Our attention to detail, in both food and service, will continue to be our main goal. We believe in nourishing body and soul, which is the wisdom of our Salerno ancestors from Southern Italy. Giuseppe Bruno, Cosimo Bruno, and their staff, along with the remaining fratelli Bruno, will strive to continue this heartfelt tradition.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "The food was exquisite. From the restaurant week menu we enjoyed the vegetable soup that though a "cold" soup revealed the complex flavors of one served hot, and the bronzino that was perfectly cooked with an avocato sauce that was more of a flavorful foam sharpened with small grapefruit segments. Unfortunately all of the service staff was inattentive and unwelcoming for a restaurant of otherwise exceptional quality."

  • "I liked the relaxed feel of this place - Soft ambiance, tables far enough apart to have conversations, service attentive but not overbearing. Restaurant week menu was upscale and portions moderate but enough. Salad and melon was fresh, fish was steamed and perhaps needed a bit of spice. Desserts were delicious we had sorbet and panocotta. Test of a restaurant is would I return and the answer is yes."

  • "There was one Maitre 'd taking orders for the entire room. When my wife arrived, he was not aware enough to know he was blocking the only path to the tables. When he asked if we wanted two the a la carte menus as well as the Restaurant Week menu, my wife responded "sure," but he turned and gave the a la carte menu to the table behind us where two men were sitting leaving only the Restaurant Week menu. After waiting 45 minutes to order - we got the message and left. The man should not be working with the public."

  • "My friend and I decided to go in for restaurant week since this is not typically the kind of place we go. It's a bit stuffy, but was perfect for a quiet lunch with a dear friend where all we wanted was to catch up for a few undisturbed hours. We were asked to wsit a couple minutes when we first arrived, although we had a reservation. We each ordered entirely different menu items, but both were pleased with all three courses. The food was cooked perfectly and was very flavorful. My one complaint was that it seemed as though they forgot about us at dessert. There was a long wait, which the waiter acknowledged and apologized for when he did finally bring out our dessert. Overall, good spot."

  • "We love Caravaggio - one of the most creative and delicious restaurants. Everyone who works there is skilled, professional and very lovely. It is not a loud restaurant and the tables are placed with enough space so that you can hear the conversation at your table. One of our favorites. The burrata with poached pear - when they have it - is superb!"

  • "Went for lunch during restaurant week and loved everything about it! From the eclectic contemporary art decor to the excellent service, everything was fabulous. We had the Caesar, Grapefruit Puree Bronzino and Tiramisu--all were delicious and I would go again."

  • "The ambience is cheerful and interesting, particularly the mural of children singing. The pasta carbonara was excellent and the service was pleasant and professional. I plan to return for a casual lunch or brunch with friends and family."

  • "We had lunch on Saturday. Even though Restaurant Week was going on, they do not honor it on weekends. So we had the 2 course meal for $30. Caprese appetizer was minimal. As was the Branzino. Cookies at the end were scrimpy--four cookies for two people. We like this restaurant; sometimes it's not up to par."

  • "Waiter had a sourpuss and he was pretentious. Restaurant had only about 6 other people dinning for lunch, but waiter had to seat us in the corner. Later a lady was dining alone and she complained to us that they also seated her in the corner."

  • "My husband and I had dinner at Caravaggio after attending a summer cocktail party at a nearby art gallery. Dinner at Caravaggio was a perfect end to a lovely evening. First and foremost, I must compliment the welcoming ambience created from the first greeting at the door throughout the balance of the evening. Our server was superb. She was efficient, knowledgeable about both the wine and food, available, and, all around, a paradigm of excellent service. The food was good and the wine excellent with a very good price to quality ratio. My husband and I live in the neighborhood and will certainly return regularly to Caravaggio."

  • "We love Caravaggio. On this visit everything was great except for the $90 glass of port that was served with my cheese. The waiter- who was excellent in every other way that night - including finding an excellent wine within my requested $100- just asked if I wanted a glass of port and I said yes. But $90 ?? However we will be back"

  • "This is a lovely restaurant with great ambiance and good food. The prix fix lunch menu is a bargain at $28 for two courses, although the choices are limited and some things are not always available. The quality of the food is always high and the service impeccable. They know the Italian red wine we like and have it ready for us. Great restaurant."

  • "It is really too bad that our experience was so awful! We ordered the chicken meatballs as an appetizer and commented on how salty it was. That was nothing compared to the main dishes. They tasted delicious, but the amount of salt was not tolerable!! But what made it worse was the fact that the waiter was arguing with us about it. We sent both dishes back and were told that the chef tasted them, the chef cooks with allot of salt We did not have another main dish, since we were already told that it would be salty. We ordered desert. When we received the check we were charged for the two dishes we sent back!!!We had to argue with the waiter to take the dishes off our check! He finally did."

  • "Gorgeous restaurant. Perfect location for us. The service was totally in attentive. We waited twenty minutes to be acknowledged in any way. I requested a table by the wall since it's quieter both under special requests and on the phone when they confirmed. They immediately took us to a table front and center in the middle of all the hubbub. The food was poorly seasoned and not hot. The appetizer consisted of four asparagus, barrata and a scoop of quinoa with no seasoning at all - bland and unappetizing for $22. They never acknowledge our anniversary, which I had mentioned. Overall, we looked forward to a wonderful dining experience and we were disappointed. It is a lovely restaurant with lovely staff. They just missed the mark. "

  • "While the food was good. The experience was disappointing as the service was lacking for such an expensive restaurant. I went there to celebrate my friends birthday. I called in advance to make sure they knew it was her birthday and they would do some thing special for desert. On the phone they told me they would make a plate with samples of each desert with candles. I had to tell 3 different waiters it was her birthday before they got it, but obviously had to so it in front if my guest. They put a candle in a golf ball size scoop of ice cream and the person who delivered it didn't speak English well enough to sing. At another table a whole group went to sing. "

  • "We have enjoyed this restaurant in the past in all respects---food, service and ambiance. However our most recent visit was a keen disappointment. While the decor is fabulous and will not change, the food was not only ordinary but in the case of the first course, served hurriedly and cold. Unacceptable at these prices."

  • "We are regulars at Caravaggio and we loved being greeted personally by Bruno. We were given a lovely table (for 4), and enjoyed great service. The soft shell crabs are in season, and this restaurant prepares them wonderfully. One guest loved the lamb chops, and I enjoyed the lasagna. The soufflé and berries at the end were a nice treat. The only negative is that this restaurant gets more expensive every day! It was $120 per head, which I think is on the high side. $45 for soft shell crabs? $25 for soufflé? $15 for berries?"

  • "I was really looking forward to our lunch at caravagio.Our first course of Salume was fine but the second course of pasta with clams was not good. The clams were overcooked cockles. Really inedible. Too bad since previous times all had been perfect. As far as I know "vongole veraci" are not cockles."

  • "Caravaggio is one of our favorite places -- to go to with friends or simply on our own. The food is reliably delicious, the staff efficient, as well as warm and welcoming (it is clear they love their work!), and the somewhat unusual decor most appealing. We can't wait to go back."

  • "Service and food are consistently good here. Their lunch prix fix menu, however, is very limited and most days, they are out of at least one entrée. My husband ordered burrata, which was not on the prix fix menu, and they not only charged $25 for one small lump of burrata, they also charged him not only the prix fix charge of $30 but also charged $8 for desert. As he paid extra for the burrata, he was entitled to two courses for lunch. Whenwe pointed this out, they removed the extra $8 charge from the bill."

  • "Ana Maria and our service team were super. The service team made the lunch special indeed. As this was our first visit, I cannot comment on all food selections. Our appetizers wer soup and the pasta and clams. Delicious. For entrees, I loved the scallops which was indulgent with the virgin olive oil chosen by the chef. My wife had an excellent shrimp and vegetable selection. Oh those bread sticks and the superb bombolino dessert which we split. So decadent ! We will be back immediately. Rob Milo"

  • "15 minutes after being seated, we still hadn't been given a menu to look at. Waiter was either nowhere to be seen, or seemed preoccupied with cleaning spoons near the kitchen. The service was so poor and slow that at one point I had to go to the kitchen entrance and ask them to bring out the main course as we'd been waiting roughly 20 minutes and were getting sleepy. To cap the night off, despite taking my father's crutches from him after we were first seated, neither the waiter nor any other staff member brought the crutches back to him when we were done for the night."
