Great starters - the own-produced pesto was just a delight. The Bolognese was great too, the pasta unfortunately not al dente. The steal of my companion was great too (so he said.) Service was a little inattentive - but as the food is so good you kind of accept it easier. I will sure return when traveling there again.

Have visited this place 6 times.....first two times (a couple of years ago) were good food with pleasant and capable service. Then, at my suggestion I took a family party to an empty restaurant .......empty as they had decided to close early. Nowhere else to eat in town so we went to Sheffield. Third try and fourth try and fifth... More

Checked out this place on the recommendation of friends. The menu is very limited and not really that exciting. the food that we had was o.k but the service was a little cold. overall ok but not as good as expected. off to try the new café Lilypad this week to compare.

Very disappointed with quality of food and service this time. We left as quickly after we had eaten. Staff seemed unfriendly and place was cold.

Taken here by my wife to celebrate my birthday we have been to Calabria a number of time's before and so knew what to expect; great food and very courteous service. The meal did not disappoint and nor did the very friendly staff who were happy to tweak menu items to fit the meal to our requirements. All in all... More

This is my third review of Calabria, however my opinion of the restaurant remains the same! This is still clearly the most welcoming restaurant in Chesterfield. On this occasion, it was a lunch with our daughter who was on a weekend visit from London. On daughter is well versed in the London 'cafe culture' and was very complimentary of the... More

I'm no fan of the Italian cafe style for anything more than an espresso, but had been given vouchers as a birthday gift. On arrival, the welcome was genuine and warm. Our coats, scarves and gloves were taken and tucked away somewhere out of sight. On departure, they were returned to us without needing to ask. This long-lost little courtesy,... More

My husband and I visited here for the first time last night as we had been given vouchers as a wedding gift. It was very quiet, only a few other tables in use. Maybe because it was midweek? Staff were very welcoming and service was swift throughout the meal. Again, it probably varies depending on busier periods like everywhere else.... More

Well, this restaurant comes out as best in Chesterfield so I was full of anticipation! The reality was a rather cold restaurant (we had to move table twice to get away from the freezing air blowing out the ceiling fans) with average Italian food! The food was acceptable but that is really all I could say for it! The flavours... More
