SquareMeal Review of Caldesi in Campagna

Having wowed the crowds in Marylebone, launched a cooking school and sold their fair share of recipe books, Giancarlo and Katie Caldesi have brought their brand of rustic Tuscan cooking to Bray. It may be out of the limelight in a quiet residential street, but there’s a certain luxe to Campagna’s mix of bare brick walls, Italian bric-a-brac, crisp tablecloths and sharply dressed staff that chimes perfectly with the food on the plate. Expect rustic classics such as tagliolini and black truffle, pappardelle with beef and pork ragù or crisp-skinned red mullet with an artichoke salad alongside more creative combos of sea bass ravioli with tomatoes and lemon, pink peppercorn-crusted duck on mash with red grape sauce or puffy doughnuts with pots of custard and berry compote for dunking. Home-baked breads are a standout, and in summer a canopied terrace opens for shaded alfresco eating.

we were a party of four and greeted as if were regular well known guests. the service, ambience and food was all first class and I have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant. we will certainly return and hopefully have the opportunity of sitting in their delightful patio area in the summer.

We are on the constant look out for good restaurants in reasonable driving distance from our home near Wendover. Sadly, the ones that we know of can be counted on one hand. BUT this one, which we found on the Square Meal website was really really good. In every respect, it exceeded our expectations. It was by no means cheap but the service and quality were as good as I have experienced in the UK, especially for Italian food. We live most of the time in the US on the east coast, where Italian cooking is readily available and is superb – this restaurant is happily just as good. W had the a la carte menu and although on the expensive side, was good value. Service was very friendly and top notch
