Great menu and service

Enjoyed the numerous appetizers, the high quality and well prepared meat and choice of Italian wines. Great service. The price is not too high considering the quality and ambience offered. I do enjoy going back from time to time.

An amazing place. Very little English and no menu but don't let that put you off. The food was amazing and the antipasti (all nine plates!!) were spectacular.

This restaurant is one of the best I have encountered. Chef Fortunato Aricò is a generous and friendly host, as well as being a chef of great talent. The other customers were all repeat diners, which was easy to understand given the exceptionally friendly reception by both the waitress and the chef. The food makes great use of local ingredients,... More

Having eaten fish non stop for 2 weeks, we felt like a MEAT break. Perfect place for a steak and a beautiful bottle of Italian wine. Our waitress helped pick the wine; which lines all the walls of the restaurant. Regular patrons perused the walls before making their choice. Our pasta was scrumptious and cooked, according to Calabrian specification, al... More

It was our first evening in Reggio di Calabria. My boyfriend found this place from tripadvisor and we were very excited to try it out. It did not disappoint. We did not have any reservation on a Friday evening so we came early at the restaurant, around 7:30pm. When we got there, the waitstaff called out someone from the kitchen,... More

An excellent culinary experience and recommend it highly. Don't hesitate as it's delicious. Friendly service and interesting wine choice. Catch a cab as parking is an issue.

The Grand Menu Anti-Pasti is a MUST! It's really tasty and well worth picking, We came back for our last night in Italy and enjoyed ourselves very much!... More
