Caldesi in Campagna is Giancarlo and Katie Caldesi's first launch outside the capital, adding to their two successful restaurants and popular cookery school, which are all located in Marylebone. Offering an authentic Italian menu brimming with regional dishes and specialities, Caldesi in Campagna is suitable for all occasions from a light lunch to a gastronomic dinner. The menu is inspired by real Italian food from Italian regions. The head chef and his team have spent the last few months researching and developing an exceptional menu. Katie and Giancarlo have lovingly decorated the interior, which boasts two traditional log fires and a sumptuous contemporary decor, interspersed with old photos of Giancarlo's childhood in Tuscany. The beautiful garden, which houses their authentic wood burning oven, is another lovely feature of the restaurant and offers al fresco dining during the summer months.
