Fantastic pizza, pasta and sea food. Great location and service (if papa himself serves you). Only downside: 3€ coperta (service fee) per person. Ask how much coperta they charge before ordering and they might give you a reasonable price (1 € -1.50 €-2€ tops!!!)

Stopped there for a quick lunch with the family, based upon recommendation. Lovely antipasti with mixed cold cuts, chese etc., below average steak, but attentive service. It wasn't a bad experience, but would not eat there again...

If you are searching for a truly mediterranean food experience you must stop by this delicious corner of food and exquisite Calabria dishes. We recommend risotto with Lemon and shrimps.. and seafood linguine too of corse. .. But you won't miss an intriguing seafood entree...More

I ate here during my 10 day stay in Pizzo in July this year. Unfortunately I only discovered this beautiful restaurant 3 days before I was leaving. Great food and service in a handy location. Definitely recommend you eat here during your stay in Pizzo.
