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.

Excellent with a couple of reservations: main course swordfish Milanese arrived with center uncooked and had to be sent back for further treatment which took 5+ minutes. Staff good but never once refilled water glasses. Otherwise very fine lunch.

We had a lovely experience eating outside. The set up was great, and being on a side street, was quieter. Our server was very attentive without being intrusive. The cocktails were made very well and the food was delicious.

It made my birthday extra special. Neither my friend nor I had informed anyone at the restaurant that it was my birthday but one of the staff members must have overheard my friend's greeting me with a happy birthday wish. Dessert arrived with a candle and a happy birthday message.
Doesn't get better than that.

Relaxed albeit attentive service, food couldn’t be beat and the cocktail was the best I’ve had in a very long time.
I never leave reviews and typically don’t have “favorites” but I cannot wait to dine there again.

Caravaggio is not just a restaurant where you can grab a bite. It is an experience, where you can enjoy a real fresh Italian cuisine served by an amazing staff, professional and friendly.
If you want to live a real New York movie scene, it's the right place. Perfectly located between Fifth ave and Madison Ave and few steps from Central Park

The food here is sophisticated and impeccable. As it faces 74th Street, the outdoor pavilion is quieter than those of restaurants on Madison. It is a very special place.

Caravaggio was quite different than pre Covid. The food offering was average for a restaurant at Caravaggio”’s Proce lint. The staff was definitely not focused and w as inattentive.

The wine list was quite excellent.

Overall a mediocre performance at a very high price.

This is one of the best Italian restaurants on the upper east side- maybe in all of NYC. It's only rival is Sistina, its sister restaurant only 8 blocks north. The extensive list of fabulous daily specials means you never have to look at the written menu. From beginning to end, the service is friendly and detail oriented, and the kitchen turns out a varied array of exquisite food, prepared with the utmost car. We go back quite often and everything is always of the highest quality. Thank god they made it through the pandemic.

O!M!G! Only wish we discovered it right after it opened. It's right around the corner from a place that we occasionally use. Outside dining was wonderful except for a table of six who thought outside meant being loud in a way that they wouldn't have been if inside. But! Go for the food, service , etc. and you won't regret it...

The grilled octopus was not good. It was watery. The lasagna was soggy, oily and salty, I had to send it back, and got mushroom ravioli that was a better dish. My husband’s arugula salad was soggy. We will not be going back.

Caravaggio consistently provides spectacular cuisine in a refined setting with attentive service especially with the captain and waiters (sometimes the service staff can be tone deaf to requests). Caravaggio is always a treat, albeit not a cheap one.

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!
