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

Husband and family had one of the bests meal ever had and we travel all over. On a working farm all or most of the... More

We have been visiting this restaurant since the year it opened and have never been disappointed. The quality, presentation and flavours in the food are superb. The setting has to be seen to be believed and the staff are very friendly and welcoming. This is one not to be missed!

It's quite impossible to find it. It is hidden in the small village of Brivadi, near Capo Vaticano (1,5 km). The 'Gusto' menù (7 plates) is etonnante, a set of unbelieved dishes of Calabria traditional food. But don't think of something wild, it's all very sofisticated. They consider the traditional food and elaborate it with lighter ingredients and different cooking... More

From the moment we walked in to this restaurant we were treated as family. The meals we had were absolutely fantastic from the preparation to the presentation and ultimately the taste. There were 4 in my party. We started out in Naples then on to Positano then on to Villa Vaticano to this wonderful restaurant. Our trip also brought us... More

There aren't that many restaurants to chose from in this area but without a doubt this was one of the best.It's slightly off the beaten track & one would need a car but it is worth making the effort to go.If I was in the area again I would definitely put this restaurant on my list.It was great.

We visit Donna Orsola regularly since more than a decade, it's usually one of the best dinner appointments. Previous years they were more of an Agriturismo, with cuisine based on simple and local ingredients. This season they have spiced up the ambitions by enlarging the menu and the choices. All was great, and well worth the money
