Located just steps away from Central Park East, the Bruno brothers of Giuseppe, Antonio, Cosimo, and Geraldo introduced Manhattan's Upper East Side to Caravaggio in the summer of 2009. For the past 5 years, it has exemplified a new concurrent and modernized Italian dining experience in Manhattan.

Start with the Insalata Tiepida Di Calamaretti E Verdure Di Stagione, which features a colorful combination of sautéed calamari with seasonal vegetables. Drizzled with dried tomato vinaigrette, it created the prefect flavorful and hearty salad.

The Razza Con Carciofi Capperi E Pomodoro was pleasing and amiable. Skate Wing was glinted with a fragrant caper-tomato sauce, served with braised swiss chard and artichokes.

For a taste of fresh dessert, order the exceptional Caravaggio Tiramisu. Served cold the sweet ladyfingers is soaked in marsla, sweetened with mascarpone and than balanced out by scoops of delectable espresso gelato.
