Love this place, really good Italian food

We have been a few times for dinner and always have a great meal. This time we went for lunch with our 5 year old, he loves salami so was ok, but they are not really set up for kids food wise. However my son still says they do the best ice cream ever. Highly recommend this place.

We can't understand why Giancarlo & Katie Caldesi haven't got a Michelin star!! Their home-cooked, truly seasonal, full of fresh ingredients menu is surely crying out for one!! Having said that, maybe a Michelin star would ruin it? Bray is choc-a-bloc with stars, but the inspectors have made a terrible omission............Caldesi in Campagna has the BEST Italian food we have... More

Went for lunch to this upmarket Italian restaurant with my family to celebrate after awards ceremony at Windsor Castle. The atmosphere was warm, friendly and very Italian but underneath and apparently effortlessly there was real attention to detail. The food was superb from the little taster arancini with cauliflower purée to the steaks, the pasta, the delicious veg, the home... More

A little hard to find - and essentially being spread over the ground floor of a house inital expectations were not that high - we were seated in a conservatory area. However the warmness of the welcome and attentive serivce soon moved us on. Food overall was excellent - particularly the fish. Deserts were outstanding. I had a rolled duck... More

Given the foodie hot-spot that Bray is, this family-run restaurant has a lot to live up to and it DOES, punching above it's weight! It's not the Waterside or the Fat Duck, nor does it pretend to be, but if you want good Italian food and great service, it delivers.

We have eaten hear many times and have always found it a most enjoyable experience. The food is excellent, dishes from many areas of Italy enhanced by expert touches from great cooks. The menu is not large but well constructed to enable anybody to find something they really enjoy. I try to avoid small restaurants with large menus as this... More

First time here with friends and what an amazing place this is. The setting is great and the food, totally awesome. I had the crab and avocado salad starter, pure heaven as I adore both. My main course of duck breast was simply too delicious and the mash was the perfect compliment to it. We were more or less the... More

This is a very good restaurant in very nice setting in the Gastronomic heart of Berkshire which Bray has become. Obviously there is stiff competition but this is more affordable than nearby Michelin Star restaurants. The service was excellent with a good welcome. The food is classic Italian food extremely well presented with accompaniments mostly very flavorsome and melts in... More

6 of us plus baby went for lunch yesterday to celebrate a family birthday. We ate off the set lunch menu for just over £20 for 3 courses. Only one word describes it - delicious! The fresh asparagus wrapped in parma ham was a delight, as they had a crust of poppy seeds. We all chose the cod and added... More
