Caravaggio New York
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.

UES Old School Italian with great food and gracious service--very enjoyable.
Caravaggio is a time capsule of once elegant NY upper east side dining that has sadly not come to the times with their meal tastes. Stuffy and sleepy, the menu was underwhelming and the taste left too much to be desired.
This is my third or fourth visit to Caravaggio over the past several months. I am pleased and impressed with its consistency - good food, good wine, good if not slightly over attentive service in a very nice environment. There are however two items that could use some improvement. The wine list is very much oriented towards the upper end and it is hard (or was hard for me) to find an attractive bottle at an equally attractive price - little under one hundred dollars and too much at more than five hundred. That lends itself to a bigger bill at the end of an otherwise pleasant evening. The second item is that the portions are too large - next time we share- but there will be a next time
Excellent service and food. A large number of specials and a willingness to customize both menu items and specials. The low noise level was nice for a change.
First time there. Thought it was exceptional.. The food the service all excellent. Beautiful restaurant highly recommend
Excellent. In every way.
Fantastic food! Beyond delicious!
Food is always Superb! Service was wonderful. Restaurant is elegant. A treat in every way!
They have the grumpiest waiter I have ever encountered.
Perfect in every way! Polished service, great food, beautiful atmosphere and a good value.
Service was very attentive and the sommelier helpful in dealing with a very expensive and extensive wine list. Very attractive understated decor.
Exceptional food presentation, taste and service.
Everything at the highest level of quality.
Lunch was okay. I expected something very different. You live, you learn.
Great food, great service, but very expensive, particularly the wine list. There are far more bottles above $1,000 then there are bottles for < $100.
We were rudely ignored when we arrived early for drinks. Given partial wine list, not full book. Wait staff stood around talking while we wanted to order cocktails. Meanwhile bartender leaned on bar w her cell phone. Had to request to be shown to our table. Tried to change entree well in advance of delivery and were told it was already cooked even though it was a grilled dish. Ordered tea. One barely filled cup w no offer to refill and no pot for a second cup. After 10 minutes had to request sweetener. Bill slapped onto table w no thank you. Water glasses not refilled. We will never go there again. Wait staff was condescending and behaved inappropriately for a restaurant of that caliber with those prices. Old cliche of treating women dining alone as second class citizens. They need to get into the 21st century.
Veramente eccezionale per la serata di Capodanno!
Truly great Italian food. Impeccable service. We love everything about this place.
after just returning from Rome for Christmas and being afraid to eat Italian food in the US, we went to Caravaggio for New Years Eve dinner. The food was awesome and rivaled the food in Rome.
Food was fantastic and service impeccable. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Caravaggio is a culinary experience. Having been there 3 times in the last month - I can honestly say that there are only great choices for food, wine and amazing service.
Out “go to” restaurant in NYC
Staff and Service from a time long past 1st class. Dinner was equally amazing !! Can’t wait to go back.
Great neighborhood elegant restaurant
great restaurant! great food. scallops with cauliflower puree were delicious1
Beautiful restaurant with fantastic food and ambiance.
Extensive menu of specials are always fun to hear the captains share. Delicious options you don't see on other Italian restaurant menus. Good choices of wine. Pleasant room and tables decently spaced.
Beautiful setting - great service - food should be more refined in taste and preparation: it’s a little too savory, thus shutting down taste subtleties
If you're fortunate to have Tony and/or Samas waitstaff, you're in for a treat. Tony recites to specials as an Operatic aires. The maitre d, Mario, works the room as if it were a gathering of family members. A special place! Enjoy.
We had a wonderful thanksgiving dinner - the restaurant is just lovely, the service is excellent and the food classic italian. Very enjoyable!
This is my fourth year at Caravaggio for thanksgiving dinner. Iris absolutely fabulous! Different from other find dining, there is no pre fix menu. You can order whatever you want. The lamb and turkey were wonderful! Had a great Amarone and a French Chardonnay!
This is not your traditional red-sauce Italian. Instead it is a very sophisticated and "grown up" gathering place for the Upper East side neighborhood west of Lexington Avenue. The daily specials are numerous and reflect the best ingredients of the season. The food is creative and delicious and the service impeccable - well worth the cost.
Great for special occasions.
Finest chef In NYC!!!!
We went there twice in one week. Very good food and excellent service. We particularly liked Tony-the waiter from Montenegro- who knew the long list of specials every time. We enjoyed chatting with him.
