This was the second time I have been to Calabria. The first time was when it first opened and the food was good then but by the time I visited the restaurant the second time the food and whole experience was even better. The occasion was for my parents 30th wedding anniversary and the staff could not wish to please... More

I took a group of family and friends to Calabria for a special birthday celebration. The food and the service were both out of this world! The quality and authenticity of the food would be hard to beat not just in Derbyshire but anywhere. The Calabrian mixed starter was very impressive with it's variety of meats, cheeses and fish and...

Called in tourist information and was recommended this restaurant---thank you! Initial impression was small and friendly with a relatively small (but good) menu. Tried Crodino to drink--a great non -alcoholic find with blood orange. House red was also very good. Olives and bread were authentic and rustic and the mushroom risotto a perfect taste! Friendly staff, clean and a joy... More

Hi. Booked a table for a date night. The food was amazing. I had the lamb and it was perfectly pink. My fiancé doesn't like tomatoes but she loved the cherry tomatoes such was the quality of the food. The house white was gorgeous. The service from the dude with the beard was informative, entertaining and swift. Will definitely come... More

Peckish after a walk and a wander around Chesterfield, we tossed a coin for Indian or Italian and Italian won. And, weren't we pleased with the choice.... 2 Mojitos, one carpaccio starter and one chicken pasta dish later (other 3 diners in group had different starters and mains), we all left feeling pleasantly satiated having had a really good evening...

A delightful place to eat, well priced and delicious food. The mixed bruschetta was to die for and we ended up mopping up the juices with bread.. We had the wild mushroom ravioli with a walnut and gorgonzola sauce then - ooh then the lemon posset with basil jelly. The staff were not over the top but friendly and helpful... More

All 4 of us had different main courses and they all looked and tasted great with perfectly cooked meat and fish. My friend and I also had the "Not so Eton Mess" dessert which was... More

We visited Calabria for a birthday lunch and had a wonderful time. My husband and I have lived in London for many years and are spoilt with a variety of fabulous restaurants, but Calabria really is an Italian gem in the heart of Chesterfield. The atmosphere was vibrant and the staff attentive and friendly. They were very thoughtful with regard... More
