Are these folks kidding when they rate this place or do they just have no pallate? The pork medallions were not even worth eating. I left them on the plate. The orrechietti was terribly undercooked. I ordered the anchovy salad and got 5 shrimp ... No anchovies. Yes, it is very very elegant with stunning views but the food actually... More

The restaurant is located on the cliff facing a beautiful view to the coast and the whole of Amantea. The setting is extremely beautiful and romantic with candles and flowers everywhere. Service, food and choice of food is excellent. At the same time the dishes are reasonably priced. Can highly recommend the place

The terrace for dinner has just an amazing view with its location. The menu is very special composed and the dishes are good but not excellent as u would expect from the appearing location. (as an example to mention are several fishbones in a very tasty fish-'tortino', and the oversaltet noodles ai frutti di mare). We think as compensation we... More

You would not expect to find a restaurant like Le Clarisse in this area. It is part of a gorgeous boutique hotel, simply decorated, high high ceilings, stylish and due to its cliff top location, stunning views across Amantea and out to sea. The restaurant is in a walled courtyard which is lit up at night with candles on the... More

Just sat on the terrace in Le Clarisse having finished off a stunning three course dinner with my wife. If you are after a bit of Calabrian fine dining then this place is a must. The setting out on the terrace at sunset is stunning. The atmosphere is beautiful with italian music gently being played in the background. The service... More

We visited Amantea in the off season of March. The city was very quiet but we had a wonderful time and recommend travel before the rush of people in April. We dined at Le Clarisse on a Saturday night. The food and wine were exceptional as was the service. The owner and his wife came to our table to meet... More

A thousand reasons for loving the restaurant, the rooms and the charming cloister. It's a must if you're in Calabria (South of Italy).
