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.

I was recently staying in this fantastic little town and was taken to dinner here by the owners of a fantastic pub in the town The Royal Oak.

Seven of us had dinner here last night as we are on a holiday from Australia. It would be hard to find a better meal than this anywhere. My crab linguini was rich and delicious! The ragu was delicious too. We all had entrees and mains. Deserts looked delicious too. My advice would be to choose carefully if you want... More

Great cooked breakfast in this lovely town. This cafe looked the most appealing out of the few other options for breakfast - very modern Italian interior, with huge windows - good for people watching! The cooked breakfast was very tasty - the bacon was delicious and it was all presented beautifully (hard to do with a cooked breakfast). Would like... More

Visited here a couple of times in the last week. Used to be called Terra Nova. Clean, modern decor & very friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Staff were attentive and chatty without being intrusive at all. It's all about the food. Big servings of extremely tasty, hearty Italian food, cooked beautifully and served with pride. We shared a mixed platter which was... More

We had a meal at Calogero's whilst visiting friends locally, on a Thursday evening. Although the restaurant was full the service was excellent, the staff were very attentive and made the meal more enjoyable. The food was great, we both ended up eating three courses, the portions were generous and everything was delicious. The restaurant was very clean and well... More

That's about it I suppose, average. Whilst the food was edible it was a little heavy going. It's a nice enough place and we know others who have enjoyed meals here when it was Terra Nova so you might like to check these as well. Quite enjoyed watching the waiter sneak out the back door and nip to the co-op... More

We popped in to Terra Nova to have some lunch before journeying home from our holiday, and it was excellent. It really was the best roast we have ever had; delicious food, very good value for money. the staff were really friendly, and the service was very quick. I wish we didn't live so far away! Compliments to the chef!!
