Delicious food and nice atmosphere

We had an event here, 14 of us for a meal. The food was tasty, well presented and there was a good variety. The staff were helpful and attentive. I would go back.

Just couldn't decide and asked for a recommendation from the gentleman Instead of a recommendation the gentleman ( who I... More

I am absolutely disgusted by what I witnessed at my meal (which to be fair was fine). I read a lot of the positive reviews and had decided to give the place a go. Unbelievably, the owner got into a dispute with a customer about something or other, followed him and his partner outside, screamed abuse at them and then... More

aliamb, Owner at Caravelli Italian Restaurant, responded to this review

I would like to take this opportunity to respond to your comments. On Saturday our credit card machine went down. This was completely out of our control. Staff were instructed to advise customers on entering the restaurant giving them an option to pay by cash or cancel your reservation. This was an inconvenience to all parties involved. I am sorry...

I went once with my boyfriend and we were both satisfied with the starters (the Caprino alle Mele and the Funghi Farciti ). As mains we ordered Penne don vito, Pasta cooked in garlic, chicken mushrooms and peas in tomato and cream sauce, and it hardly tasted of anything as it was watery and also the chicken had no taste...

Love Caravelli. Fantastic service and incredible food. Me and my partner both love coming here and will always find something tasty on the menu. I'm a huge fan of the food an my girlfriend is a fan of the handsome fella that runs the show. Top Notch.

Nice clean restaurant with wide choice on the menu. Lovely pasta with shell fish for me, not overpowering in sea flavours which was nice. Pretty good value for the quality.
