We have been visiting this restaurant for about two years now, and not only is the food great, it gets better every time we visit. Off the beaten track it is truly a hidden gem. Their seafood soup is out of this world.

We've eaten at this restaurant many times and we keep returning for the excellent food, the pleasant atmosphere and the welcoming staff. There's a varied menu, along with daily specials. The annual lobster dinner in July is also a hit.

Calabria Coastal is gem in a quiet country village. Jeff is the chef and Melissa the host of this small but excellent restaurant. An inspired menu based on local produce wherever possible. I love going here and all my family and friends know this.
