The Owners: Fratelli Bruno

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012

On July 15th, 2009, Caravaggio opened its doors to New York City for the first time. Located in the heart of Manhattan’s glamorous Upper East Side, the Bruno brothers’ latest cutting-edge concept carries on the long-lived family tradition of serving great food to their devoted patrons and to the greater New York area. They believe in nourishing body and soul, which is the wisdom of their Salerno ancestors from Southern Italy. Giuseppe Bruno, Cosimo Bruno, and their staff, along with the remaining Fratelli Bruno, strive daily to continue this heartfelt tradition. The Brunos work hard to bring each of their guests the best modern Italian cuisine in New York City.
