Set lunch menu is incredible value at £7.95 for two courses. Good choice, great quality meals, served quickly & discreetly as required for a business lunch. Usual warm welcome from Bruno & team & personal service.

We have eaten here a few times now, in various sized groups, and the food and service has always been faultless. The main seating area of the restaurant is pleasant, but quality of the menu is really the sole reason to go. Portion sizes are very generous and the wine list is extensive.

First visit for us but left disappointed. Food was ok but nothing that special to tempt us back. The fish would of been more enjoyable with less sauces and herbs and less grease . The scallops were nice and big but I'd guess not fresh and again tasteless due to the over kill of sauce . Prices are reasonable staff... More

I've been visiting Caravelli for years and I've never had a bad experience. The food is always absolutely brilliant, the steaks are consistently the best in the area and the service is great. My favourite Italian restaurant by far.

Ate at the restaurant this evening as part of a huge party of 32 people and the guys at the restaurant were totally unfazed. Service was exceptional - all meals served at the same time, as per order and most importantly, hot! The food was wonderful - especially the sea bream. Will definitely be returning (with a smaller party)!

We chose the restaurant for my wife's son's 40th birthday as we had been there for lunch before. We chose the 2-course lunch menu for all 15 of us, and although this is not a large menu all of the choices were excellent. For a very reasonable cost the portion sizes and quality are great! The staff were friendly and... More

We visited caravelli last Saturday for my mums birthday meal, it's not the first time we'd been and certainly won't be the last. Great welcome and service, lovely food, I had the fillet Casanova, really nice, maybe just a little bit too much sauce but that's my only complaint. Someone else had muscles to start, they were great, but again... More

Romantic atmosphere. Staff are very good. Very nice to meet Bruno who seems lovely. Food was gorgeous. I had the venison which was scrumptious and husband had the salmon which was also very good. We will be back. Thank you.

The food was pretty good! I wish they would have had some more different beers, but, atleast the Peroni Riserva was nice with steak. Nice cozy feeling, but gets a bit loud with too many people in.
