Unique and Delicious Dinner

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... read 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.

We came here by recommendation of our B&B owner, who himself comes here to eat. We had a great reception from both the chef and the waitress, who where very service minded! 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

If you are in Reggio Calabria you must eat at this restaurant. It was delicious and very good prices. They bring you some Preseco and hors d'ouevres on the house. Their wine offerings are wonderful and priced so reasonably. My husband and I both had beef. Mine was slow roasted tenderloin wrapped in bacon served very rare and my husband's... More

As a solo traveller in recent years I will go to a 'good' restaurant for lunch rather than dinner… reading at dinner does make you stand out ! However here I was made to feel most welcome by the owner and the staff. Inspite of a large VIP party soon to arrive (it became most evident upon their arrival >)... More

Had dinner here last night and chose the 'small' Degustazione starter. It was amazing...the food just kept coming and coming and it was all delicious. The hard, crumbly pear infused cheese was beyond description. Being a cheese enthusiast I could have eaten just this all night. There was an amazing mushroom tartine, Gorgonzola and fresh pears, beans in a spicy... More
