We came here on the strength of other recommendations. Delicious food, with plenty of choice even from fixed menu options. I had a seafood risotto, which included saffron, baby octopus and salmon; it was delicious and surprisingly filling! The staff were lovely, extremely welcoming and friendly. This restaurant has an air of real quality about it, without being stuffy. Lucky... More

The ambience was lovely and food top quality! Normally pub food people, we fancied a change and went on a date to dress up a... More

Have been meaning to put a review on for ages. Great for brunch/lunch or afternoon tea but also the best in Chesterfield for dinner. Always good quality and excellent value for money. Lovely atmosphere but unpretentious. The staff in general are a delight and Jessica is an absolute gem. Chesterfield is so lucky to have Calabria. We are going again... More

We chose the mixed antipasti plate for two as a lighting lunch option. This combined vegetable, fish, cold cured meats and cheese selections and came with pickles and toasted ciabatta. We particularly enjoyed the char grilled courgettes and aubergines, anchovies and pickled aubergines and the bread was delicious. The fish ( tuna and prawns) would have benefitted from more seasoning... More

We came here for our anniversary and it was a surprise for me. Tbh I'd seen the menu online and didn't think I liked much. We decided to have the 7 course taster menu and I'm so glad we did. The food was amazing and I tried things I wouldn't have tried or thought I liked but I even enjoyed... More

We booked the Calabria Hog Roast for my Dad's 80th Birthday party for around 80 guests and what an excellent choice. The only word I can describe the Hog Roast is amazing the meat, crackling, stuffing and apple sauce were outstanding and cooked to perfection. The team were very efficient and friendly from start to finish and would not hesitate... More
