Good place for eating outside, langoustinis spaghetti was really good and so was the traditional pork dish.

We sat outside on the piazza and it was a lovely setting. The food was really good, traditional Corsican cuisine (we went for the menu Corse). Highly recommend the wild boar stew. However, the waiter really seemed like he couldn't be bothered to be there. We were rushed through our 3 courses, spending just under an hour there in total.... More

We discovered A Piazzetta a few years back and every time we come back to Calvi, we have dinner there at least one evening. Great food, very generous portions, well cooked, well served, great atmosphere and seating, both outside and inside.

Good food, but quite expensive for what you get. Friendly atmosphere, fast service. Large quantities of food.

For families with children the spaghetti can easily feed 4 kids. Good food and moderately priced. Adults might wish to order a pasta dish and a meat dish to share as the portions are really generous. The sink in the toilet is pretty interesting with a metal horn for a tap.

Stopped in during a cruise layover so we went unfashionably early and had no trouble getting a table. The Corsican cuisine was fantastic. I had the 20 euro set menu of 3 dishes and my vegetarian wife went al a carte. Wild boar stew was the real highlight. Friendly staff. Our French is passable but clearly staff spoke enough English...

In the off season, this restaurant was full. Mostly locals enjoying a great value, €20 special of 3 kinds of terrine, wild boar stew with polenta and a simple but delicious cake with liqueur. Excellent experience.

Lovely terrace location in old town center but off main road. Menu on the heavy side with lots of Corsican style dishes but quality of meat excellent and well cooked - sauces delicious. Nothing green with main dishes which were big so suggest having an entree and sharing a main if not a big eater. Friendly and efficient service.

Restaurant recommended by hotel for local food, not cheap but nice setting in the centre of Calvi. Set in a tree lined square with dining outside. busy with local clients as well as tourists so you may need to queue at busy times. The food caters for all types but specialises in local produce, portions large and would recommend the... More
