Giulio Caravatta (born March 20, 1966 in Etobicoke, Ontario) is a former Canadian football quarterback who currently serves as a Canadian Football League analyst on CKST and Rogers Sportsnet.

A quarterback and punter at Simon Fraser University, Caravatta signed with the BC Lions as an undrafted free agent in 1991.[2] He made his first start on October 21, 1995 against the Baltimore Stallions.[3] Caravatta was selected by the Montreal Alouettes in a dispersal draft to provide the former Stallions with non-import players, but was traded back to the Lions after he refused to report to his new team.[4] He made one start at quarterback late in the season. It would be Caravatta's last career start at quarterback and as of 2009, the last start for any Canadian-born quarterback in the Canadian Football League.[5] In addition to playing quarterback, Caravatta also saw time as a kicker, punter, and holder.

Caravatta's broadcasting career began in 1999 as an analyst on the Lions' pre- and postgame shows. In 2000 he became the team's colour commentator.[6]

Caravatta is also a member of the West Vancouver Fire and Rescue Unit.[7]
