LPV Top Selection for Local Italian

Caffe Caldesi is a mecca for Italian food lovers, set in the gastronomic heartland of Marylebone Lane, London. Katie and Giancarlo welcome you to Caldesi, a true family business inspired by the Italian cuisine of Tuscany. Whether you pop into the ground floor for a cappuccino or a glass of Italian wine with your bowl of home-made pasta or visit the restaurant on the first floor for a hearty home cooked meal, you'll find a warm and friendly Italian style welcome and a shared passion for great food and wine. Downstairs, the atmosphere is relaxed and lively, with a menu that includes antipasti, pastas and a smaller selection of main courses. The first floor restuarant, with its crisp table cloths and meticulous service appeals to a more seasoned clientele, feasting on excellent ingredients, carefully sourced and prepared with skilled restraint. LuxePrivé awards top stars to a kitchen that is confident enough to let the ingredients speak for themselves - no culinary trickery needed here. Just tasty simple ingredients, prepared perfectly, like the Burrata "poverella" that is anything but "poor" with the decadent addition of complimentary flavours and textures of charred courgette ribbons and crunchy toasted hazelnuts. Tender, mineral North Atlantic Scallops are given a hint of sweetness with fresh pea and almond slivers and daily changing soups reflect the seasonal produce. Pastas here are sublime and the standout Tagliolini pasta with perfectly butterflied prawns and courgettes, was so fresh with the addition of black ink that it lent a seaweed like taste and texture to the dish. Main courses include a wide range of fish and meats; the roasted Halibut was served with authentic, roughly cut Caponata and the succulent fillet steak was unctuous with the addition of a rich red wine sauce and served with a delicious selection of side dishes.
