“Just the antipasti will do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2008

Andrea welcomes you in with a big smile and explains what's on offer. No menu, just a range of traditional Calabrian dishes prepared with local produce, much of it from his father's farm. The antipasti runs to about 12 different dishes, then there's a choice of 3 primi (pasta) and/or three secundi (meat). None of us managed more than the antipasti and one further dish, and that left us gasping. But it tasted too good to leave. Including drinks the bill was around 20 euros each. And, to crown it all, you can sit outside looking at the old palace, sometimes with entertainment in the square. All in all, worth going to Scalea just to eat there - not to mention two other good restaurants, the Terazza (at the top of the historic town, so a bit of an effort to get there on foot, but same sort of food and price, and well worth the effort), and the Antica Ostia
