Took a customer here for Dinner on a Tuesday night at 6pm and it was one of the best meals I've had in ages. We were sat with full view of the Kitchen through the serving hatch and could see the care and attention going in to every dish. We had an amuse bouche before the meal which was a... More

Visited on 9th august and had the belly pork. It was wonderfully presented, full of taste and the wine complimented it even more. Everything from atmosphere to service was second to none and will definitely return!

This is my second visit to Calabria and we had a lovely evening. The waiter on duty was very professional and very attentive. I ordered from the set menu which was good value for money, with the option of several choices for each course and ability to choose how many courses required. I opted for a beef penne pasta dish...

Having read this review I made contact with the writer as I was puzzled by the feedback relating to our lasagna. Everything was made clear once I was told that this was not a recent visit, it was some 3 months ago. - a period when we had temporary chefs due to unforeseen circumstances. The lasagna we make originates from... More

Boring reviewer repeats what all other five star reviewers say. From the amuse-bouche meatball to the trio of ices, via the salmon involtini and the seafood risotto, this was a memorable meal, served by friendly and professional staff in attractive surroundings. The wine was good, but beer lovers shouldn't ignore the Italian draught beer, either.

Three of us attended the special fish night - six taster courses for £35! What a really lovely evening we had - the food was fantastic, the service impeccable and not a bad price for six courses either. We just ate, drank and chatted the evening away - it was just a perfect night - thoroughly enjoyed by us all.

I cannot fault the experience my friend and I shared at this restaurant The food was excellent, tasty, hot and beautifully presented. The staff were friendly,attentive and helpful without being annoying and nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely visit again if ever we find ourselves back in Chesterfield.

From the welcome at the door on arrival to being thanked on the way out, and the excellent food and drink inbetween, our latest visit to Calabria left us feeling we had enjoyed a perfect evening.
