Description: A busy bistro set in the heart of the idyllic town of Lostwithiel...
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.

Huge meal and chocolate heaven

This place was busy but they found us a table giving good explanation of how long it would be before we were served. The food was plentiful and the sweets were huge and yummy - we both had chocolate

Very delicious food. Even our fussy daughter enjoyed it. Will definitely go back for lunch or dinner. The only thing to let it down was the approach to the toilets. In need of updating.

Stopped in at Calogero's having had a quick look at the reviews on tripadvisor as our last meal in Lostwithiel. Glad we did as both the service and food in this restaurant were excellent. From the well cooked, presented and tasting starters - the arancini were fantastic! To the main course of pasta and dish topped off with a streak... More

I have visited this restaurant on many occasions. The food is well prepared and the ambience is good. All of members of the family found food they enjoyed. As a non wheat eater I have a large range of food to eat including battered items, a real treat.
