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.
Just a couple blocks from our home, it has become favorite neighborhood restaurant...yes, it’s pricey but it’s on the upper east side between Fifth and Madison so no one is expecting any bargains...and the food is excellent. Servers very professional and competent, friendly host and hostess. Always A mind boggling array of yummy sounding specials on offer. Ask for eggplant Parmesan, which isn’t always on the specials or the menu, but they usually have some in the oven anyway. It is to die for.
The restaurant is on a side street, so it can be easy to miss. I went with a friend during lunch on a Monday afternoon when it was not busy. The service was terrific, as was the food and ambiance. The restaurant is elegant and spacious, with interesting artwork by artists such as Miro, Stella, etc.
It was relaxing and quiet. Although we were there for lunch, neither my friend or I were interested in a heavy meal, so we stuck to small plates from the appetizer/salad menu. I had the ricotta stuffed zucchini, and my friend had the asparagus with fried egg. Both were delicious and satisfying. The restaurant is expensive, though being on Madison avenue, the pricing is not out of line with other UES restaurants of the same caliber.
The food was good and the restaurant is pretty, but the service is just plain bad. The waiters never came to check on us, never asked how are food was or we needed anything, and they never smiled, not even once. I am never going back there. It is really a shame, but bad service ruins everything, even good food.
Every element of this beautiful, glamorous and intimate restaurant works for me. Service is attentive and personal but not intrusive. Wine list outstanding. Presentation and quality of food is excellent. I love to eat at a restaurant where you know you would be happy with almost any menu or special selection and this is it. I love this restaurant for business, personal and romance. It’s a special spot that will always be in my favorite rotation in NYC, and not just for UES options.
Food was bland. Too many specials. Took waiter too long to read list.
Very expensive for mediocre food.
An upscale restaurant that scores on all levels. Service was perfect. Food sublime. Setting recalls a time of luxury and comfort.
Our first visit to Caravaggio and we were very pleased. Service was excellent. Food was outstanding. Everything was fresh, perfectly cooked. I ordered the squid ink pasta with seafood. Amazing! And had gazpacho as my starter which also was perfect. Ended with the wonderful tiramisu.
I was impressed on how their menu "specials" was almost as long as their their regular menu list.
Will definitely be back!
Love this old school find!! Everything was great, the service, the wine, the food!! Will definitely go back.
Great overall experience. Food, Service, Amenities, beautiful surroundings
One of my favorite Italian restaurants on the UES. Excellent ambiance, food & service.
Excellent food and service.
The waitstaff are pretentious and rude. I offended the waiter when I asked if my husband and I could split the soup.
classy is the word to describe this restaurant. Like eating in your dining room. Wonderful, caring service, excellent Italian cuisine like eating in Italy. Excellent dining experience
We were very disappointed in our meal. We ordered a pasta on the menu and later were told the sauce was not available. Also, one of the chicken specials only had one left. This was at 7:15pm on a Saturday night. What we finally ordered was ordinary. This was a special occasion and we were expecting a very special meal and that was not our experience.
Exceptional, as always. Tremendous food taste and presentation of the various dishes, service impeccable.
A true oasis of culinary excellence in the desert of mediocrity!
I was surprised at how good the food was at this restaurant. Everything the four of us ordered was excellent. The service ws impeccable and the place is very attractive. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
There were practically no other diners at the lunch hour which made for a very quiet and pleasant time and resulted in no feeling that we needed to leave.
The service and food were excellent and I would make this my place to go for lunch in that area,.
Impecable evening... One of the best NY strips I have experienced. Will definitely be back for future celebrations!
Lovely uptown Italian restaurant. The service was wonderful. We found the staff friendly and very knowledgeable. The food was delicious, we were very happy with our overall experience at Caravaggio.
Fine dining, great service and low noise level. A tad expensive but worth the experience.
Starters were super, mains very good.
fabulous food in a lovely setting but very, very expensive!
Three friends enjoyed lunch at Caravaggio recently. We were given excellent service and attention, perhaps because the restaurant was nearly empty. Food and beverage choices were ample, and our waiter took good care of us. Although I had indicated on the reservation that this was a special birthday celebration for my friend, no mention was made by the staff. The cost here is steep, so be prepared! However, for a special occasion it’s OK.
Wonderful restaurant with great staff . Food was excellent and ambience is classy but relaxed .
As always, a great meal! Service is top notch. Love the room. Just an all around favorite
Good and fresh food, nice and soothing atmosphere, prices are steep, but no different than other places in the area.
We had a magnificent dining experience. Wonderful cocktails and delicious dinner of pistachio-crusted red snapper. Dessert was a goblet of the tiniest strawberries from Spain. The service was attentive and friendly and the sound level was ideal. We were able to enjoy our dinner conversation as well as the meal. Can’t remember the last time we could do that. We’ll be back!
3 friends celebrating our 3 spring birthdays at lunch
Old New York. Great New York.
Like it’s sister restaurant Sistina, Caravaggio is beautiful, classy and delicious- and of course equally expensive. But with everything so good it’s worth it for a splurge when you want to be in a first class place with truly excellent food and impeccable service. Am always impressed by how many great specials both places have and how perfectly the waitstaff recites all of them without pause.
As Always Caravaggio never disappoints.
Their extensive list of nightly specials will always allow you to try something a bit different than what is listed on their menu.
This is always a once a month stop for us.
Overpriced big time!
This is one of the best restaurants in Manhattan - along with Sistina, the best on the UES
Pleasant noise level
Chic decor and wonderful art work
Had pistachio crusted turbot and soft shell crab as entrees and shared fried portobellos and oysters to start .... pistachio and mango espresso ice cream ... the espresso gelato was weak but all else good ... and a wonderful white wine suggested by our server.... good and expensive! We enjoyed the meal and some good art on the walls and thoughtful service.
Great food, especially the scallops! Service was excellent. Definitely recommend and will be back. Thank you for making my dad's father's day extra special!
Very good food, very old crowd. Formal service for an Italian restaurant.
Your waitstaff was exceptional, especially Tony. All other waitstaff very slightly below Tony's exceptional attention and service.
The service was amazing. Food very good and the ambiance perfect
