    Staff very friendly and welcoming and service excellent. Mussels are fab! Ambience for us was a bit too noisy and difficult to park nearby but overall a very enjoyable meal.

    Excellent, attentive staff, lovely food and nice little touches, like olives on the table upon arrival. We went early with three children and the staff were excellent with them. Lovely evening had by all.

    Lovely meal and the Pasta Deal was great value - would recommend

    Had a lovely meal staff were great, will be back.

    I enjoyed an excellent lunch with a friend. We both thought the food was delicious and the service friendly and efficient.

    Been here before never fails to impress lovely food every time.


    My friend & I had a lovely meal & the service was excellent! The food is all freshly cooked & so tasty! My friend had the carbonara & she said it was the best she had tasted! Very friendly staff & will certainly be going again!

    The service could not be faulted, the meal was wonderful and I even received a red rose when leaving, a great way to celebrate Valentines.

    Greeted at the door and had our jackets taken for us. We were offered either to go straight to our table or to sit for a drink by the bar, we had a drink and they gave us our menus, to be taken to the table and served our starter straight away. The staff were very friendly, welcoming and attentive. The food was delicious. We ordered sea bass and a salmon pasta dish for mains. Tasty fresh vegetables are brought out alongside the meal. Food was plentiful and very good quality, definitely value for money. Highly recommend a visit.

    Great food!

    Great taste at Caravelli!

    Beautiful restaurant and lovely staff. Excellent food and service with a smile :) The staff arranged my cup cakes on a platter and brought them out with a candle at the end of our meal. Very happy customers and will definitely be dining there again :) *****

    Absolutely fantastic food with a fantastic service!

    Lovely meal and evening

    The meal was adequate but nothing special. A nice restaurant but nothing special that really made it stand out

    This is a restaurant that we have visited before and it did not fail to impress this time. The food at Caravelli is always of a high standard and the waiting staff are pleasant and attentive. A lovely evening all in all!

    Lovely meal and service as always!

    It was our first visit to Caravelli, but not the last one. We were three, my husband, my son and me. And we all have the same opinion: It is the best reustaraunt in Loughborough!

    Bruschetta bread over toasted and had to be returned as too hard. Veal not to Caravelli's normal standard - too gristly. Caravellis usually brilliant so need to take care.

    Fantastic evening, food, service. Great laughs with good friends made easy by the relaxed atmosphere. Have recommended several times over.

    The meal at Caravelli was delicious. Lunch menu was excellent value, but looking at the full price menus you do start to pay quite a bit more. Service was very friendly and with a smile, but there was some confusion over drinks and the bill at the end which was a shame. Overall, I would definitely recommend for the lunch menu.

We say…

Enjoy heartwarming classics at traditional Italian restaurant on Sparrow Hill.

Infamous for being one of the oldest buildings in Loughborough, chefs Massimo and Luigi have revived this fourteenth century building with a vibrant Italian menu bursting with flavour. 

Enjoy classic pasta dishes such as linguine ai fruitti di mare, an assortment of fresh seafood slow cooked in a tomato, garlic and white wine sauce, to a tender veal escalope sautéed in creamy garlic mushrooms.
Caravelli also serves a variety of vegetarian options, including large ribbon pasta in a rich tomato, basil and garlic sauce, blended with mushrooms, courgettes and cream.

Their relaxed and inviting atmosphere makes it the perfect dining destination for both couples and groups of friends. 

Just a short walk from Loughborough station, book your table today.
