From the owners of 2 AA Rosette-winning Caldesi in Campagna, Caffe Caldesi brings little-known Italian recipes to London. A bright and breezy dining room is offset by relaxed al fresco dining out on the cobbled pavement.

Bringing lovingly crafted, homemade Italian delicacies to London since 2002, family-run Caffe Caldesi London prides itself on authenticity and tradition. As well as homemade pasta freshly rolled by the Tuscan chef, Caldesi menu favourites include Roman-style slow-cooked chicken thighs, or succulent beef medallions with green peppercorns and sautéed broccoli.

As well as an impressive wine stock and a lengthy list of rich Italian coffee blends, Caffe Caldesi Marylebone offers luxurious Italian desserts. Enjoy orange panna cotta with almond tuile, or rich and gooey flourless chocolate cake.

A failsafe family favourite, the Caldesi restaurant dining room is filled with soft murals and bistro-style furnishings, whilst expansive sash windows bathe the restaurant in natural light. Bond Street Tube Station is a 6-minute walk away.

    Have been here several times before and had had great food and service. Our lunch yesterday disappointed- in spite of being the only four people in the restaurant, service was slow and inattentive and the wrong dish was brought for me, meaning I ate my food after the other 3 people had almost finished.

    I have eaten at Caldesi several times and have always enjoyed it. This time the service was very poor which spoilt the evening. We had a table of 8 for a special occasion. After ordering the wine, we had to ask for it several times before it arrived. My husband eventually got up to go to the bar area to find out what was happening. The food was also exceptionally slow in arriving, the waiters didn't know who had ordered what, the starters didn't arrive together so my husband had to wait while we were all already eating and when his scallops arrived, they were cold. We waitied nearly half an hour for the desserts to arrive. Poor or no management? According to the bill we were served amuse bouche but we didn't see them. The staff were pleasant enough but struggled on the night.

    Absolutely dreadful. We have been there a number of times over the years, but recently it has really gone downhill and after our last visit we will not be returning. 1. Yet again we did not get the table we requested 2. When I pointed this out we were each given what was meant to be a complimentary glass of Prosecco but when the bill came we had been charged for it! 3. The two pasta dishes we had were greasy and unpalatable. 4. My wife ordered Scallops as a Starter but instead got a main course portion for which we were charged. 5. I ordered the Scallops as a Main course but instead got a Starter size. 6. The service was so slow we had to ask when our main courses would arrive. 7. The service was also unfriendly and unsmiling and the Maitre d' didn't seem to have a clue what he was doing. 8. Our bill wasn't correct but as by then we just wanted to get out of the place I just paid up and left in disgust. Appalling.

    The food was very special, beautifully cooked, service was great, until we came to the dessert which lay on the counter for 10 minutes. We had to leave quickly for another appointment paid and when I got back to the hotel, checked the bill another bottle wine appeared which we did n't have. Very sad, I am sure it was a mistake, but it's not good.

    good food and generally good service - the octopus carpaccio as a starter was fantastic, and for main courses the calves liver and sea bass were both very good.

    First time at Caffe Caldesi - our starters were a bit under-wheliming though the mains were excellent. Good service, quiet noisy, and rather expensive, though the restaurant is in the heart of Mayfair. Wondered afterwards if downstairs would have been more fun.
