Caravaggio is an Italian restaurant located at 23 East 74th Street (between 5th Avenue and Madison Avenue) on the Upper East Side in Manhattan, in New York City.[3] It is around the corner from the Whitney Museum of American Art.[1]


The restaurant opened July 15, 2009.[4] It is owned by brothers Giuseppe, Antonio, Cosimo, and Geraldo Bruno.[5][6][7][8]


Its co-executive chefs are Isauro “Luis” Rosas and Massimo Bebber.[4] Among its dishes are meatballs, eggplant parmigiana, roasted red snapper, roasted swordfish, dover sole, veal chops, ossobuco with saffron risotto, bomboloni, and cannoli.[1]


The restaurant exhibits two paintings and a sculpture by pop artist Donald Baechler.[5][6][1] It also exhibits art by Frank Stella and Ellsworth Kelly, and four original Henri Matisse stencil lithographs.[1][9] It has silk-lined walls, and leather seating.[10]


In 2013, Zagats gave it a food rating of 26, the fourth-best in the East 70s.[3] That same year, a review in The New York Times described it as "one of the most civilized Italian restaurants to turn up anywhere in the city in the last few years."[1] The Michelin Guide described it as "a good reason to dress up and splurge".[10]
