Giancarlo and Katie Caldesi run an excellent restaurant tucked away from the Prada end of Bray. Great authentic Italian food drawing on traditions from Montepulciano, Tuscany, Puglia, Sciliy and Milan. Fine Italian wine list. Lovely garden area with outside dining and cooking from a wood burning stove. Excellent specialities usually based on local seasonal ingredients.Perfect Osso Buco.

We've been to Caldesi a number of times and went with a large group (11 people) for dinner this past weekend. As I've come to expect, the food and service were both excellent. We were sat at a large table in the front of the restaurant (essentially in the bar), but it was perfectly fine. We had a few children with us and the restaurant kindly made up some simple pasta dishes for the kids while the adults indulged in the main menu. I can't speak in detail for everyone else, but there were no complaints about any of the food and lots of empty plates went back into the kitchen.

All three of my dishes were particularly good...I started with a scallops with Jerusalem artichoke cream and bacon that was absolutely fantastic. My main was a baby whole chicken that was stuffed with chillis, garlic, rosemary which really imparted the great flavour. It was perfectly cooked so it was still juicy with a side of very nice roasted peppers and a chilli pesto. Finally I had a coffee pana cotta that was absolutely genius and not to be missed.

The service was great and they dealt with our special kids orders and gluten free bread with ease. Really top notch.

Caldesi in Campagna is an upscale-ish restaurant, but with very friendly service and hearty Northern Italian faire. Because of the service, great ingredients, and excellent cooking I never leave feeling I got anything but great value.

Pretty cosy restaurant by the side of the Thames - great open-air courtyard at the rear (no views unfortunately !) Staff were friendly and well informed and the service was discreet. Food sounded wonderful but lacked imagination on arrival. It turned out to be nothing more than a really well cooked home meal.(My veal was over cooked thus a little tough and the sauce needed 'pepping-up' Mashed potatoes had tiny lumps in it). Nothing made me want to return there - too much excellent competition in the local vicinity.For what it was the price including all the extras was expensive.

All you get here is Great food and great atmosphere.. Have been numerous times and it is always good.. Had the Tuscan seafood “Cacciucco”, king prawn, mussels, clams, gurnard, calamari, cooked in white wine, chilli, garlic and cherry tomato sauce. Toasted bread. Lovely...
