It is better to book in advance as Il Caldaro is always very busy. During the summer as for a table on the terrace, in available. Service is very friendly and the food is excellent. The restaurant has a very nice atmosphere, a good selection of wines and the food is excellent value for money. Pizzas are delicious for Euro... More

We stayed 1.5 km from this restaurant that doubles as the eatery for the local golf course. It's really the only restaurant within 20 minutes so we were hoping the past reviews were accurate. They were - great food, especially pizza night which was Friday. They don't have a lot of gluten free options so I couldn't have the pizza... More

We were looking forward to our dinner at Il Caldaro having heard good reports. The welcome felt luke-warm when we arrived and our overall impression was not helped by a member of staff alongside the 'dumb-waiter' smoking a cigarette. The starters were acceptable but the 'mains' were below par. The 'lamb cutlets' were just not up to standard - one... More

We had a few meals here whilst staying in a villa nearby. The staff are very welcoming which creates a lovely friendly atmosphere. The food is beautiful, great pizzas for the kids. Try the local Renaia red wine.

We stayed in a villa on the golf course property and dined here several evenings during our stay. Pizzas from the wood fired authentic oven were amazing. Meat and pasta dishes are incredible. Go for the steak Fiorentina.

We have visited Il Caldaro on several occasions over the last 7 years when we have stayed in the area. The restaurant is in a beautiful setting looking up at the amazing antognolla castle which is obviously a good start. The food is amazing with traditional Italian food being served on each course. All the family are always impressed with... More

We dined at this wonderful restaurant on the Antognolla Golf Estate four times during our one week stay at nearby Villa Capanne. We also had morning coffee there each day whilst enjoying a friendly chat with the staff. On every occasion we were welcomed like old friends. The quality and taste of each authentic, traditionally prepared meal was second to... More

Everything about this restaurant was perfect during our holiday in Italy. The food, especially the truffle fondue, pizzas (Friday and Saturday), chicken and lamb, was delicious. We were greeted by a roaring fire and the enchanting Anka, who raved about each dish on (and off) the menu. She was not wrong. Having tried a few other local restaurants, we returned... More
