This is definitely one of my favourite restaurants. We visited recently for a family birthday and had ordered the lamb. It is just to die for. The way it is served is just spectacular and just prepares you for the treat on your plate. The lamb is so tender and succulent, full of flavour but all about the lamb. It... More

Visited here with friends, its a touch of the beaten path but what a delight! Ordered the antipasti with a view to having a main course and soon gave up as the food just kept coming. There was such a wide selection to suit every taste and more than enough to eat. Very accommodating and great service. Will definitely revisit... More

The variety of antipasti was wonderful. I loved the fresh ricotta. We were brought here by Francesco Jentile.

I was recommended to try this place which is just 5 mins from gioiosa old town in Martone. Traditional setting with wooden table and chairs with table cloths. We were advised there was no menu but offered more or less whatever we wanted . A bit confusing if you are price conscious . In fact we had so much antipasti... More

This is a true find!! The chef grows his own vegetables in his sunny Italian garden then creates amazing dishes, depending on the vegetables in season and creative ambitions that day. He serves so much food, antipasti, not sure who would be able to eat the next courses, homemade pasta and meat. This is crazy, amazing good food in a... More

Visited here for Easter Sunday lunch with group of friends - scots, irish, english & italian. We all had the lamb baked in clay with potatoes and veg, followed by a selection of their wonderful desserts. We opted on this occasion to avoid the antipasti - previous experience having taught us that we wouldn't be able for the main course!... More

There are no words to describe this gorgeous place. Visiting Calabria from Australia we were told about La Collinetta! It is an absolute gem in a beautiful part of the world! The food is out of this world. Traditional Italian food like I've never experienced before. This is the way my grandparents cook! I will definitely be visiting again and... More

Lovers of Calabria will adore this restaurant!! They specialise in producing high quality traditional Calabrian food. There is a huge variety of antipasti and its made from local home grown produce. Their speciality is lamb baked in a clay pot, though I would suggest giving them a day's notice for this. The quantity and quality of the antipasti and home... More

La Collinetta is a restaurant located in a small village named Martone. Martone is a town high above the Ionian sea. There is typically one seating starting at 8PM although there were partys arriving much after that. Their courses consist of antipasti, first course, and then the main meal. We had asked in advance to have only the antipasti and... More
