The antipasti were excellent, the primi piatti (pasta) was good, but we had a very long wait for the main course. After all a very good experience!

Absolutely justifies it's top place in the area's restaurant reviews. Fabulous meal (and wine) at very reasonable prices. Friendly expert service too. Slightly rustic outdoor setting for such refined cooking, but it certainly has character.

Great family restaurant near Capo Vaticano. We visited Donna Orsola twice during our stay in Calabria. This place has terrific service, great food and vine. If we go to Calabria again I would definitely do to Donna Orsola for a dinner.

Our last night in southern Italy we decided to go to a nice restaurant and we did not regret our choice! This place is great, quiet and intimate. The food was excellent, we took the antipasti for 2, we are all of it, simply delicious. My boyfriend chose the lamb ribs (agnello) and we have to say that we never... More

After two weeks in Calabria, I was getting bored of the same food being served up in all the restaurants. It seemed like the menu was the same everywhere. Arrived here... Beautiful. Lovely setting. Attentive staff. It was special. Great wine. Amazing food. I had the risotto with liquorice shavings on top. Fabulous! Just great to have something different and... More

This is by far the best restaurant in the region. Yes, it is somewhat difficult to find, and you may want to make a reservation to avoid disappointment, but this place is worth every bit of effort. Everything is good about this place: the atmosphere, the staff and of course the food and wines. Don't miss this restaurant when you... More
