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 and his staff, along with the remaining fratelli Bruno, will strive to continue this heartfelt tradition.

UPCOMING EVENS :
We will be open on Valentines weekend and waiting your arrival. We will be serving a special a la carte menu all day and night on 2/13/2021 and 2/14/2021 . In order to book we do require credit card information. There will be a $100 non refundable cancelation and no show fee per person in the group.

Caravaggio does not disappoint! It was our first time inside in a while and what an amazing experience we had. All of our food and drinks were outstanding, and the servers took very good care of us. The menu is extraordinary and there were so many wonderful specials. Biggest problem was making decisions on what to order, but it's impossible to make a bad choice. Highly recommend!

Fabulous UES restaurant on the corner of Madison and 74th. They offer both inside and outside dining to suit either preference. Their service supreme. Their attention to detail second to none. An amazing menu with choices you will not find in your “average” Italian restaurant. If you are looking for a dining establishment that’s both pleasing to the eye and the tummy look no further.

We loved brunching at Caravaggio! The service was outstanding, very friendly and the food was incredible. The oysters were super fresh and clean and the seafood pasta and mushroom soup was heavenly. We cannot wait to come back, it was like a mini trip to Italy!

Caravaggio is our go-to for lunch when we visit the museums uptown. They have a nice selection of wines by the glass, and they have plenty of salads and antipasti and pastas suitable for vegetarians (lacto-ovo). The wait service is always amazingly pleasant and attentive. They have a lovely inside dining room. Two wines, two salads, one pasta split for two, a coffee and a tea was $140.00.

The food here is exceptional and cold foods are appropriately chilled and hot foods are served piping hot as one would do at home. The problem is that while friendly and knowledgeable, the service is painfully slow— even on a not-so-busy evening. We love this place; it’s one of just 3 restaurants we’ve been to in this entire pandemic year. If only the service would improve!

Beautiful restaurant, unfortunately they should not allow people with strollers in the main dining room. We were looking forward to a nice dinner on Friday night in NYC. However, there was a young very casually dressed couple in the main dining room with two very young and whining or screaming children. It ruined the atmosphere for everyone. We had a nice table but decided to move outside in the cold instead because the high pitched kid noise was intolerable. Selfish people and bad move by Carvaggio to allow other guests to suffer. Where are dress standards and manners anymore.

The food was excellent, as always. We opted for outdoor dining and the outdoor space was insufficiently heated. Overhead heaters were either too far from the table or not strong enough. We've eaten out all winter at other restaurants and have been quite cozy.

The food and the service are always spectacular. I would not Sit outside in 36 degree weather but the food was not worth it. The bread basket is outrageous and the good is always innovative yet approachable abs not pretentious.

Excellent food and nice location near the Metropolitan Museum of Art and other destinations. Current has a heated outdoor seating area and reservations were available. Wines by the glass average $20, but there is a nice selection also of cocktails around the same price. Salads were around the same average but were ample. Pasta was delicious. Many selections without meat are available.

Absolutely incredible experience! I live in Connecticut where we are still dining indoors for the most part. I was skeptical about dining in NYC, outdoors, in January. But I was so pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere was still romantic and authentic feeling. There wasn't many people there so we were lucky enough to have heaters on both sides of us. We didn't even ask for that. It was just graciously offered to us. We were also offered blankets. It was so cozy that we even took our coats off! The servers were incredible. So knowledgeable and had the best accents. They checked on us routinely; we never found ourselves sitting around waiting on them. The food, drinks, and deserts were perfectly made. Perhaps the greatest dinner experience of my life. I have zero complaints. Bravo! I'll definitely be back and will recommend!

Only a great restaurant manages to maintain a wonderful ambiance in the middle of the COVID lockdown. Caravaggio does everything with style and grace. Other restaurants struggle with serving food at the proper temperature and time in the meal when only outdoors dining is allowed. This restaurant staff’s professionalism and love of food is even more welcome now. The food is classic Italian; good ingredients prepared with care and accompanied with an indulgent bread basket.

We reserved a table under the canopy. They gave it to others so we sat on the side walk where the wind was blowing and even the heat lamps didn’t help warm us.

They did give us blankets and the food and service was lovely as always.

It was just too cold.

Rude hostess gave us a bad table saying that the 4 empty good tables were reserved for others. When we left, only two were taken. Just for that I would never go back. Super expensive and service does not measure up to the price. Food was ok at best. I am known in many upper eastside restaurants as a great customer and excellent tipper. Not here. If you want to have a special night, there are many other places close by that value your business and offer a great dining experience...not this place.
