This is a great place. Downstairs is a fun, relaxed place. Upstairs a bit more formal. The food in both places is superb and the services is friendly and helpful.

This reservation was for Valentines night and was a special menu.
It was excellent all round but especially the food, which was superb. It is hard to pick any course that was better than the others but we did enjoy the halibut, lobster ravioli and dessert courses.
Very attentive service throughout and a memorable evening

Took over 3 hours to get all our courses, gap of nearly 90 mins between first and second course. They removed the service charge from our bill and all the staff were very nice but for £180 it was a really really poor value meal.

Everything we had was of the highest quality, from the fresh homemade focaccia bread to the excellent wines. My pappardelle al ragu was the best I’ve had outside of Italy. Great service, too, relaxed, yet attentive. This is an establishment that really cares about providing the best culinary experience for their customers. Enjoy!

Wonderful food and attentive service as always, albeit the very busy downstairs meant that there was a long delay between courses when eating upstairs .

This is a New York style neighbourhood restuarant. The food is beautifully prepared and absolutely delicious. Service is charming and friendly. Marylebone Lane is a nice area to visit anyway, so worth a diversion.

They literally took the starter plates away and presented the main course in one move. No decent restaurant would do that?

Upstairs in the restaurant is always a nice experience. Sunday lunch a la carte or family tasting menu, both excellent. It has charm, good service, and an interesting Italian menu. Very nice.

You need to be hungry if eating at Caldesi as mains we had were great but big. Pleasant setting and great menu. Service was fine and would definitely go back for business or pleasure.

Caffé Caldesi is a good traditional Italian restaurant in a quiet little street in the West End. The staff are friendly and the menu is varied.

Not been here before but was pleasantly surprised. The staff were attentive and the food excellent. Boooking are taken upstairs with a walk in, more informal atmosphere downstairs. The prices were reasonable for the quality and the ambience was pleasant. I got the feeling that the staff here are taught how to do things correctly and this was a pleasant change.
Will definitely be going back again.

The food was very good, especially the Burrata we started with.
I had a chicken breast surrounded by bacon which was very tasty.
BUT: I thought it was expensive (only 3 stars for value) and we had no wine.

Two couples meeting up on a Saturday night to catch up over dinner. The food was really good and while there wasn't a great menu selection for the vegetarians in our party, they really enjoyed their meals. It was a little loud for conversation, but we were quite happily occupied with our food. Service was really efficient and friendly, too.
