This is one of the top restaurants in Loughborough. I was there for 6 weeks on a business trip so I had time to do a few. I however did not like the saltimboca alla romana which I was served on my last visit.

Stumbled across this lovely restaurant by chance. We looked around the area and everything was really busy, found this and they had a cancellation so must've been a sign! The decor is great, the staff are lovely and the food is amazing! I'd go as far as to say it's the best Italian food I've eaten outside of Milan. So... More

Taking my son to University, so wanted to give him a good meal. Caravelli was excellent. Great Minestrone soup followed by Lasagne served piping hot. No alcohol as I was driving. Friendly service, good food and reasonable prices. Will certainly go back.

I'm not as impressed as other people over this restaurant which is good/adequate. I ate there on 2 nights as was staying in the 'rooms'. On the first night I had gamberoni followed by veal in a cream and mushroom sauce. The sauce on the prawns was too tomatoey and overwhelmed the dish. The sauce on the veal dish was... More

I went with my partner for my birthday and can't complain about anything. We both had starters, the sauce on the gamberoni was lovely. We both ordered steaks which were cooked to perfection and my lemon cheesecake was perfect. Definitely worth a visit and the staff were also great.

Food was good, however was let down by poor service, I had to ask three times for a drink. I foisted when it was warm and the restaurant was very stuffy, I didn't manage to eat much of my food because of the heat.

When deciding upon where to go for an authentic taste of Italy in Loughborough, for me there are only two choices; Caravellis or La Favorita. Both are superb and it's tricky to pick an overall winner to crown king. Both offer a warm, friendly welcome. Both offer a wide selection of authentic, traditional Italian food. Both offer a relaxing atmosphere... More

Came here for an end of term business meal with friends and had the Pasta Night deal (starter, main and glass of wine for £14.95) which is fantastic value. As always, the food was superb and authentically Italian .. a friend needed her lasagne cooked a little longer and it was clearly no trouble for staff. I will happily come... More
