Turned up towards the end of service on Easter Sunday to find a recently vacated table. Great to see the move from the Old Kent Market has been a success for Botega Caruso. Friendly, welcoming, helpful staff, excellent home cooked pasta and desert. Will definitely be returning

Having enjoyed an evening meal here a few weeks ago, i brought my family along for our Easter lunch. Again we had a beautiful, tasty and well presented meal. All freshly prepared, with delicious ingredients sourced locally or imported from the owner's family village in southern Italy. The owners, Harry and Simona are charming and sufficiently attentive and our waitress Elissa was very pleasant too.

We had been trying to eat at this place for some time, but missed out for a number of reasons - last holiday they were just full up.
Booked for our Saturday lunch this weekend just gone and what an incredible experience it was.
All the food individually sourced and lovingly prepared to order on the premises. The service, welcome and everyting were beyond great. Can't recommend this place highly enough - run by the young husband and wife team with enthusiastic and lovely staff working with them.

Bottego Caruso is truly incredible!! Their greens and beens are my favourite dish, tho everything on their menu is so full of life, subtlety, beauty and feels so artfully and lovingly made. Greens and beans!! Ahhh. are like eating buttery sunshine, if I could marry this dish I WOULD. Ha! I would eat it every day if I could. The marinated olives are beyond incredible and the history, authenticity of ALL of the dishes are awe inspiring. It’s a welcoming atmosphere, clean and light. Friendly fabulous staff with so much history to tell you about each dish (if that interests you) and whole place has such attention to detail. I will be going back again and again! Amen.

Given the outstanding reviews for this restaurant, we were looking forward to something special. Whilst the service was in the main efficient, regretfully we found the whole experience to be slightly pretentious.The food is rather expensive peasant-regional fare and whilst there is much information as to its origins, we didn't find it that special, somewhat bland and under seasoned in one instance.Good Italian wine is expensive, but some of the prices on the wine list have to be seen to be believed,
