The recently renovated buildings have been restored beautifully and express a welcoming and extremely relaxing atmosphere, which is a joy to experience.

Despite staying nearly an hour from the restaurant, we ended up visiting Il Caldaro twice in a week. The food was authentic, fresh and immaculately presented, but very reasonably priced too. Would definitely go back on our next visit.

Discovered this place on our last day. Super food, excellent service and good value. Home made pasta was delicious, lovely deserts, coffee, wine and presecco. Wished we'd discovered it sooner!

Il Caldaro has now reopened just outside La Bruna with the original staff members and in an amazingly renovated old property. Well worth a visit if you have the opportunity but be sure to book.
