On July 15th, 2009, Caravaggio, opened its doors for the first time. Giuseppe Bruno's 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.

Giuseppe and his staff will strive to continue this heartfelt tradition.

    Unfortunately the experience was not great. We sat beside an older woman who continued to talk horribly about all the patrons in the restaurant as if they shouldn’t be allowed in because they weren’t the normal clientele. It was obnoxious and ruined what should’ve been a romantic night. The wait staff was aware and even said she was a bit crazy. While the food was ok, there were no options with chicken which is what I would’ve preferred. I will not do another Valentines experience because of the limited menu, plus the food is better and more fresh during normal times with the full menu.

    Dining at Caravaggio is always an incredibly pleasant experience. From the time you are greeted at the front of the house until your last bite, the service is impeccable. The food is cooked with great care and made with only the finest, freshest ingredients. Not to mention , it is a charming space with world class art all around.

    It’s a very beautiful place, but at lunch time was quite empty, they at night is full, service in impeccable, very good , excellent wine list, food for this time was not so good as always they put too much chili in the pasta, and Puntarella was lack of dressing. It was a pity because we always had a great food there.

    Loved the experience and since it's in our neighborhood we figured we would give it a go. Wonderful meal and exprience The funny part is that my sister was eating there at the same time with a friend . She was given the standard menu with the restaurant week additon. We on the other hand was only presented with the restraurant week menu. Guess that's profiling....maybe next time my husband shouldnt wear his sweatshirt to a fancy restaurant!!!! LOL We will be back Moral of the story...never judge a book by it's cover!!!!! We all had a good laugh

    The service and the staff were great. Would visit again perhaps for restaurant week. $25 martini and $70 1/2 bottle of wine and that was the low end of menu. Not sure I would visit without food break as very expensive otherwise. Everything was 4 or 5 star but at full cost I could not justify.

    Fantastic value in Restaurant Week menu. Always amazing food. Unbelievably extensive wine list. Only wish it included some of the wines that can be a great value at a cost of less than $150…their lowest priced wines.

    Though it has been there for many years Caravaggio has not lost its touch. The food and service were excellent and there were abundant interesting specials. The ambiance was ecxcelent and you could actually have a conversation without shouting. Definetly a go to spot for adult diners.

    This was a perfect spot for my CEO and me to entertain and thank two of our non-profit's most generous donors. Caravaggio would be just as good for a "date night," special family meal, or to dine with good friends. The food was delicious - the number of daily specials was extraordinary - and the service was attentive and unobtrusive. Expensive but worth it.

    Few restaurants are capable of providing both a comfortable milieu of understated upscale elegance and exquisite food so effortlessly. While considerable skill in the kitchen is evident from the diverse and delightful dishes it is the exquisite attention of the staff to their clientele that is evident. One feels in the hands of caring family as one is swept into a ecstasy of taste and satisfaction. Bravo Caravaggio!

    Great night at Caravaggio. The warm seafood salad and Giuseppe caprese salad apps were outstanding. The grilled cod (which had been listed on either the menu or in the specials, but was offered by our waiter) was large-portioned and perfectly cooked, as were the two venison loins (a special, I believe). The side dish of sautéed green beans (in olive oil) were great. And the profiteroles were a nice cap to the dinner. The service was attentive and timely, and there was a nice selection of half-bottles of wine. The room is set up so it is easy for people to converse, even when the restaurant is crowded. We definitely will go back.
