Why do we go to upscale restaurants? Yes, sure, to enjoy very good food and service. We even go to places that charge way more than would be appropriate for the level of quality they offer. We kind of tend to forgive mediocre food for...More

The restaurant is stylish. It has round tablets which is perfect when you are visiting the place with an unequal number of guests. Both the service and food is excellent.

Description
Formally opened by Luciano Pavarotti in 1996, Caravaggio was created in homage to a key genius of the Italian Renaissance, serving a menu that brings together dishes from various regions of Italy and its islands. Inside a former bank, all that remains of the original interior is the ornate high ceiling, with its splendid Art Deco light fittings. A gallery runs around the room at mezzanine level, providing a second tier of tables. A long, marble topped bar by the entrance provides a convenient holding area for what is, at lunch times, a very busy dining room.
