Our host, Mario, served us home made brodo (broth) followed by a rich pasta--tagliatelle in 3 cheese-- truffle sauce, paired with the best Calabrian red wine--Duco San Felice--from Cirò.

Everything!! We sat on the terrace as it was a warm evening with a lovely view of the sunset behind Stromboli. Food fabulous and wine delicious, all very reasonably priced.

This is the second time we have eaten here and I cannot rave about it enough! The place is breathtaking, absolutely beautiful with spectacular views from the many balconies. The staff are particularly brilliant, super professional and extremely knowledgeable. The food really is something special, so special that it should be Michelin star! In fact we love this place so... More

We absolutely loved it. In a magnificent panoramic setting, this delightfully romantic restaurant serves high quality, locally sourced food in a modern interpretation of Calabrian cuisine, which centres particularly well on fish. The sea bass, swordfish, tuna and prawns are especially recommended. Service is excellent. The dining terrace directly overlooks the sea, with smoking Stromboli in the distance (a volcano... More

Incredible view, amazing food. This would be a Michelin star restaurant if it were in any other region of Italy. Would highly recommend it to anyone, especially foodies!

our third visit gets better every time . Hotel is up a steep hill but more than worth it , and you would pay many times more for the faultless service recieved . It has only 4 rooms so best to book well in advance , cant wait to return .

Service is superb, as is the food. Innovative, original, tasty. The view from the restaurant is wonderful, a perfect sunset. The building is also very beautiful, as an old convent. Price is average (50€ for two, without wine).

We stayed at the hotel one night and had a great meal featuring Calabrian food and wine. Almost unknown to American tourists, Calabrian food outshines most other cuisines (and we've lived in Bologna and Rome where the food is supposed to be great; the former yes, the latter highly variable; but Calabria beats them all). This was a wonderful meal... More
