“Great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

The service was great, the owner took the order himself, for a group of 10 people, without taking a note. Offered us two bottles of wine, two entrees and some limoncello on the house. The food I had was excellent, and what everybody else had also looked great. Would defiantly recommend.

One note, is that the restaurant is a hidden. First, it is not near the waterfront where all the restaurants are and second, it is hidden behind some big house / castle. Just enter the main gate and follow the gravel path to the back.

“PERFECT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Fantastic place, tucked in the countryside, with beautiful gardens. Food and service at the highest level. Management convivial and communicative.
You have little to try to find a restaurant Calicanto, because it is opposed to the pedestrian area of Arona. Roberto and Massimo are the people you need to know.
