Not easy to find (coming from San Nicola turn left at the Tabacco in Brivadi), but it is really worth the effort. Allready in the Donna Ursula antipasti dish you get to taste the original Calabria flavours. Whether you go for meat or fish in the secondi, both are gastronomical recipes of what this area has to offer, very rich in flavour! The setting is original, nothing fancy, the service is perfect, you will feel welcome immediately. The price is correct, we paid approx 35€ pp including wine for 3-course a la carte.

We've just visited this restaurant tonight, having discovered it through TripAdvisor, so I thought I too should do my bit by confirming all that has been written in previous positive reviews of this quaint restaurant serving some excellent Calabrian food.

Finding the place can be tricky as it's located just off the main thoroughfare leading to Capo Vaticano, which is where we are staying. Taking a turn off the road just at the corner tobacconist, one finds oneself outside Donna Orsola's, with a drive leading into a private car park. The venue is a quaint, rustic place and the dining room is a semi-outdoor arrangement which we absolutely loved. It was like having our own Mediterranean garden to dine in.

The food is something else. Every dish served was outstanding in its flavour and presentation. This is what true culinary passion is about, and having spent some time with our hosts, it is clear that the passion is what drives them on to keep creating original adaptations of traditional dishes and flavours. And all of this is delivered for a very reasonable price. The wine list has some excellent local wines from as little as Eur 16!

We'd suggest this place to anyone wanting a true experience of Calabrian dining. You won 't be disappointed.

The food in Southern Italy is usually great but predictable. This restaurant makes innovative and great tasting food. It is the type of cuisine that you would expect in an upmarket major city restaurant. This a typical family owned and operated establishment.
