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.

A very nice supper, and good value, too. Favourite dish? Veal calf's liver and mash. The light bites were also very nice. My least favourite dish (a shame because I normally love it): Afogato; this is because it's important to serve the ice cream with the espresso ON THE SIDE (or serve it very quickly); otherwise (as in this case) it's left on the counter before being served and all the ice cream melts - you end up with a cold, sweet, white coffee that you have to drink rather than eat with a spoon. Not good.

The Caldesi is tucked away in a charming Marylebone side street. It is not very atmospheric but charmingly reminiscent of earlier times and the staff were very friendly and helpful, albeit a tad slow for a quiet night. There were four of us in the party and we all thought that the food was excellent. My aubergine parmigiana and sea bass ravioli were delicious. We will definitely be returning.

What a great restaurant! Our round corner table on the 1st fl. was just perfect. I found the beef and pork ragout pappardelle to be one of the best I’ve ever had. The three other guests were equally delighted with their appetizers, as well as steak dishes, and desserts - the tiramisu was so beautifully presented and tasted divine. Our waiter was very helpful with his suggestions and comments. The Captain’s “goodbye” was a nice touch. We’re definitely going back next time we’re in London, in March 2020!

Beautiful setting and incredible food that we haven’t stopped talking about the whole weekend. A perfect place for a date or meeting with friends. We’re going back and soon I hope.

I had lunch on Thursday 3/10/2019 I had Seared yellowfin tuna steak, Sicilian caponata, salmoriglio oil. It was a small, actually a very small size portion where the tuna steak slice was sitting on a bed of caponata, all encompassed in a 10cm wide round deep plate. Max. weight was probably circa 110 g ! Vet tasty but don't take this choice if you're hungry ; or have a pasta before ! Hopefully I had a fantastic bomboloni as dessert to fill me up. Service was good but slow. And the wine was good ( Sicilian Grillo "Kore", Colomba Bianca). Overall, an OK experience. Just review the size of the portions !
