It’s part of a bigger empire including a cookery school and a restaurant in Bray, but Katie and Giancarlo Caldesi’s solid corner spot retains a “family-run feel”, something that readers value. There’s an easy-going air about the ground-floor bar and coveted pavement tables, where you can eat properly or sip fashionably bitter cocktails as you please. Upstairs in the restaurant, a neat carte includes unusual ideas such as a polenta soufflé with asparagus alongside simply roasted fish and homemade pasta – try fettuccine with Italian sausage and fennel seeds. Pudding might be the famous house tiramisu, now served (inexplicably) in a jar. On Sundays there’s Italian brunch, and while Caffè Caldesi might not be the obvious place for spending big money on wine, there’s enough to keep Italophiles interested. “Good for business lunches” too.
Try 200+ wines and food from top restaurants.

my wife and I went here for dinner on Saturday 13 June 2015 and had an excellent experience. we were met by the manager Maurizio as we arrived and made to feel very welcome straight away. the restaurant oozes Italian charm and we were looked after by Maurizio and his team to the highest standard. the service was attentive and polite. Maurizio skillfully guided us through the menu and wine list. the food itself was impeccable. the scallops were excellent, as was the sea bass. we would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone that loves Italian food and wants an authentic Italian experience.

Good Italian food with a family run feel to the restaurant. Will come again.
I booked this table on behalf of a colleague for a business meeting, the table booked was amazing, and my colleague had mentioned that he was very impressed with it as he has dined there many times and never has been allocated such a nice table. The business talk had taken over after they had ordered, and he had mentioned that there was long pauses. They were impressed with the food, but not the service. He used this to his advantage and made use of the time by talking business and to avoid disappointment. Service needs a little improving, but the food was worthy!
