Friendly and efficient service with an excellent wine list

We had the set lunch which was very good value at £16.5 per person for 2 courses. Main menu looked very good indeed. Excellent wine list too. Service was extremely friendly and efficient with a high ratio of staff to customers

Italian, but not as your mama used to make. Caldesi in Campagna has been open since 2007 and is owned by Giancarlo and Katie Caldesi. It contributes to the growing celebrity status that exists in this small village complimenting the other famous establishments located there. The owners starred in the TV series “Return to Tuscany” on BBC 2 and have... More

Excellent dinner at Caldesi on Friday 13th March with my wife and two friends. We love this restaurant for the ambience, the food, the wine selection and the ever smiling face of Vincenzo , who is an absolute asset to this operation. Pasta special, Grilled fish platter, veal wallet and a wild boar lasagna were all exceptional, as were the... More

It's a shame that my meal was poor, as it's a nice buzzy place with great service. But the food is poor to average. The main crux of my complaint was the pasta - it was wet and overcooked. No chef in there right mind would have ever plated it up as it was visually clear that it wasn't al... More

Visited again for a charity dinner with a set mood. Lovely food, excellent service and great atmosphere. Giancarlo is friendly and welcoming and takes a keen interest in the comfort of his customers. Highly recommended and will definitely return.

What a loverly meal in nice friendly atmosphere. Started with scallops followed by the softest calf liver cooked in butter and sage Then shared tiramisu Hubby had tuna cappachio then sea bass ravioli in butter and lemon sauce. Pricey but worth it as we celebrated 41 years of being together.

Caldesi is an excellent family run Italian restaurant. The cooking continuously improves and teh service has really stepped up a gear. Great for family lunches and celebrations. The wine list features many Italian classics. The menu is well balance and imaginative. The garden is delightful complete with a wood burning oven which produces wonderful food.
