It's hard for any restaurant to gain a reputation in Bray but Caldesi does it by simply offering honest, fresh, delicious Italian cooking. Giancarlo is a lovely man, born to share his love and knowledge of cooking along with his genius wife. Their cookbooks are worth picking up as well. A remarkably confident, small restaurant in the heart of fine-dining... More

For the prices charged for the antipasti and the pasta (which my wife and I both had as a main course) the portions were surprisingly small. In both cases the quality was OK but nothing more. In view of this we decided to have a cheese course before dessert and fortunately this was excellent as was the desserts that followed... More

We visited Caldesi in Campagna on Sunday and had a really wonderful meal. The service, ambience, food and setting are all extremely good and the set menu very good value. The quality of the ingredients and wine are top notch. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Caldesi, whether for a romantic meal, in a group or with family. We had excellent... More

Bravissimo Giancarlo and Katie! Yet another must visit in tiny Bray! If you love Italian food, company and theatre this place is for you. In particular the special nights they hold.. This was the whole package and you spend it amongst the Caldesi family who are a delight. Good quality super as was the service. Will be back for more... More

What is there to say, fab, fab, fab. A long Saturday lunch, for four, fab Scallops and pancetta followed by a fab steak and finished with doughnuts and coffee. Washed down with Apersol spritz aperitif, Prosecco, a fine Italian white followed by Brunello and an Amerone or two with cheese! A signed copy of Giancarlo's Rome inspired cook book, could... More

What can we say? Absolute gem in Bray. Food exceptional. Setting exceptional. Management exceptional. You learn more about real quality Italian cuisine in one night then you do in several years at high street restaurants. Gave a history of various Italian liquors.

It was a fantastic meal. The veal and the liver were exceptional. I don't think you could get such anywhere else in England. You need to go to Italy!!! They made us a most delectable delicious birthday cake too. We have dined here several times and do like it but this meal was quite above expectations.

Love the fact that food is different and been to several themed evenings which have been great fun, with great food, and great company. Good ambience, attentive staff. Makes for a lovely evening with either friends or as a couple. The service is good and when Caldesi himself is present it adds to the ambience which is probably typical of... More

I have now been to Caldesi four times over a period of 3 years or so, so I think I have a reasonable handle on the pros and cons of this place. The service is excellent, the only thing I would say against it is that it can be a little intrusive sometimes, but how you view that will depend... More
