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.

This restaurant never disappoints. The staff is highly knowledgeable and attentive. The food is fabulous and the drinks are wonderful. We enjoyed a seafood appetizer, tuna tartare, bucatini and pasta with truffles. For dessert we ended with the chocolate soufflé which was worth the wait.

Caravaggio is a lovely Italian restaurant off of Madison Ave. We sat outside and except for the occasional truck passing by it was quiet and pleasant.

The menu was outstanding, the specials were seasonal, fresh and well done. Overall excellent except a tad pricey.

Has we chosen to eat inside that was lovely as well.

Excellent food, great service, very pretty room, great sommelier and a serene setting. But incredibly expensive, particularly the wine list and the specials (they don't actually tell you the prices until it appears on your bill). There is virtually nothing - in fact, I think there is absolutely nothing - on the wine list for less than $150 per bottle. Virtually all are north of $250. Constant upselling, too, from "would you like some shaved truffles" to the "why don't you try the special dessert".

Unfortunately the dinner tonight was disappointing. Seafood risotto was tasteless and bland. Scallops were perfectly seared but at 48.00 the portion felt skimpy.

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.
