A busy bistro set in the heart of the idyllic town of Lostwithiel, Cornwall. Calogero's was formally known as Terra Nova. We felt that the surname of the Sicilian head chef, who took over the business in 2011, was better suited to the type of food we now serve. Calogero's is pronounced with a soft 'g'. Our menu ranges from authentic home cooked Italian meals to traditional English dishes, using fresh and locally sourced ingredients. We have a large selection of vegetarian dishes and a separate minimal gluten menu (no gluten containing ingredients). Freshly ground Italian sourced coffee and treats are served throughout the day.

Been here a few times now and we've never been disappointed. Always big portions and really tasty. Love the aranchini!! I was a bit disappointed when they didn't have any Mayo that I could have with my chips and pizza, aioli is just not the same. Not a big fan of all the mirrors and flickering lights but nothing that... More

Dropped in purely by chance while visiting Lostwithiel. Superb lunch... bit of a delay but when it came it was delicious and fresh. Staff were friendly and happy to help, even answering our awkward questions (my husband and I both suffer food allergies) without any complaint. Can't wait to come back and try out more of the menu!

Dropped in here for a late breakfast whilst visiting the local auction rooms. The place was clean and we were welcomed by the lady behind the counter. Orders were taken at the table, we had a full English and a full vegetarian breakfast. The food arrived in good time and was of ample proportion and was of good value. This... More

We enjoyed a delicious lunch at Calogero's today. The restaurant is beautifully appointed and the staff very welcoming and attentive. A little pricy and the restaurant itself was not very warm but overall a good experience.

I dined at Calogero's last weekend for the first time for a friends birthday meal. If you are a local or just visiting the area I strongly recommend a visit to this restaurant primarily due to the outstanding food. Obviously being an Italian restaurant, you should expect Italian food on the menu; & you won't be disappointed! A varied menu... More

Visited Calogero's for dinner while away in Cornwall for a few days. The meal was great - the portions are extremely generous (they are giving away too much profti!!) and everything is home-prepared and cooked. One disadvantage is that you have to pay in cash as no cards are taken. This seems very out-moded in the 21st century but otherwise,... More

Lovely little place. The food is always very nice, plenty of veggie options too. Be warned, it is a tiny little place and it has always been busy when we've visited so make sure to book a table!

Having arrived in Lostwithiel late on a Monday afternoon in September this was the only restaurant open that evening so we ate there! It was very busy, surprising both to us and the staff, who, while happy to show us to a table, warned us that there would be a half hour wait before we could order food. We were... More
