In a trip to Italy, you would not even think to visit Catanzaro, since it is not one of the usual touristic destinations. But this restaurant is good reason for a visit, since it is one of the best restaurants I have been in Italy. The atmosphere is really great, since it looks more like a big house rather than... More

Been there in 2011 The chef has been trained in some restaurants in Rome and that explains why, along with traditional Catanzaro cuisine he serves also Roman food. I had some Cacio and Pepe pasta and it was delicious. This was one of the best restaurants I have been to and I am glad it is in Catanzaro.

We have been so disappointed in Calabria trying to find somewhere you want to go again and again with friends and family, hence I... More

Have been coming to Calabria for 15 years, and wish we had found this earlier! Small restaurant down a small lane, ring bell to get in, full of locals clearly having fun, no menu. The choice was what was fresh that day, they clearly care about the food, the bread was lovely, wine local, the sort of place you want... More

We stumbled across this jewel after doing battle with the bureacracy all morning. A lovely, cozy trattoria conveniently located near the theatre, government offices and centro storico. We had a pasta genovese per primo and a type of trippa, a local specialty per secondo. Accompanied by a delicious local vino rosso and excellent attentive service. We finished with a coffee... More
