“Meraviglioso..........”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

My wife and I spent 2 nights in Soveria at this Fantastic B&B to wind down before going home after 2 weeks of coastal travel from Sicily across Calabria by Car & Ferry.

Of all the places we stayed in on our honeymoon this B&B far and away was the best we have ever stayed in. The food, the service, the people and the accommodation were exceptional and a fine example of what is possible to find in Southern Italy. The country setting was fantastic and everything about this place was amazing. The food that was provided will leave you wanting more and inevitably will make it hard for you to leave. This place is an example to be followed for all B&B throughout Italy and the World. It is truly world class.

Room Tip: All rooms are great!

We thoroughly research all of our accommodations before making final decisions yet this situation was unique in that we were traveling to the town my husband's family immigrated from and this is the only lodging option there. We couldn't be more pleasantly surprised with this B&B and restaurant. It truly was our favorite in ALL OF ITALY - North, South and Sicily.

First, the grounds are absolutely breathtaking. Everything is perfectly manicured and enveloped in a serene and beautiful landscape that is difficult to capture in words. There is comfortable seating arranged around the grounds for your pleasure.

Second, the host, Pietro, was so friendly and professional. He spoke English fairly well and was very helpful when corresponding via e-mail, as well as once we arrived. We had booked via Booking.com yet they didn't offer the half pension plan (1 meal per day) and so we inquired via e-mail and Pietro was gracious to allow us to upgrade to the half pension. This turned out to be a GREAT IDEA for three reasons: 1) The best food we have EVER had in Italy -- authentic Calabrian cuisine that was absolutely wonderful, 2) convenient -- not sure there are other restaurants (certainly not of this caliber) in Soveria Mannelli, 3) very reasonably priced, especially with the half pension plan. The chef was very gracious and, as mentioned, talented!!

Third, the room was very clean and well furnished with beautiful swing out windows which offered lovely views from several angles of the property. There was a bedroom, bathroom and sitting room area. We appreciated the ample space. Housekeeping came everyday and did a good job. Private parking was availalbe right outside the room. Note: I do think you'd need a car if you want to go into town as it's not walk-able to the center of Soveria Mannelli.

The only one minor negative was that the dogs barked about 5 am one morning (only one morning of the three) and it woke me up to the point where I couldn't get back to sleep.

We stayed three days and I wished it was longer! We definitely want to go back and I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for lodging or dining in the area. They know how to do it right at La Rosa nel Bicchiere!

REVIEW FROM AUSTRALIA - If you are looking for accommodation in Calabria (particularly around Soveria Mannelli) well book NOW & stop looking because this is the place to stay. Don't even bother looking at other places. You will be very impressed. Rosa nel Bicchiere is a family run bed and breakfast and was one of our favorite places ever....and we've travelled all over the world. It is perched on a hill and the rooms are spacious and very very clean. The gardens are PERFECTLY maintained and the pool is huge and luxurious (great views too). The breakfast was fresh and served with so much love and special attention to detail. Great food & wine!! The restaurant was well furnished and rustic, with a flair and old world charm (in a country relaxed kind of way). We dealt with Florindo and he was a true gentleman and was always ready to assist us with a genuine smile on his face. The staff of this quaint B&B were all impressive and wonderful people, in particular, SILVANA! What a lovely lady! They all went far and beyond to make our stay just perfect, and they succeeded! WE WILL DEFINETELY BE BACK! If you are looking for a place to stay in Calabria (around Soveria Mannelli) well look no further. Perfect for families or couples. PERFECTO IN EVERY WAY!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 1 (ground floor) and it was perfect. Heaps of car parking spaces too. Any room...

As visitors from Australia our 5 night stay there in May this year was a wonderful experience. The food was excellent with the chef even preparing special dishes on request and opening the restaraunt on two occasions when they are normally closed. The rooms were "old world" but spacious and very clean and with its rural setting made our few days there very relaxing.

Room Tip: On the ground floor rooms facing the mountains were ideal.

I had the pleasure of staying at this establishment for three days and it was a truelly a wonderful experience. Pedro, the director made me feel very welcome. The rooms were basic, but very clean and very spacious. The food was some of the best food i ever tasted in all the years i have been travelling to Italy. Chef took great pleasure in preparing his wonderful dishes and i took great pleasure in eating them. Salmon moose is to die for... and the wines...mamma mia! Lovely!
I loved my stay so much i will be returning there to see in the New Year, which will be just over two weeks after my first visit.

Amazing!

I was there just to have dinner and I must admit that is one of the best place in calabria I've been. The food is a sort of renewing of traditional meals, the taste is delicate and intense at the same time. The wine the chef selected for our choices was a superbus calabrese rose'. The desserts were all peculiar and delicious. The only problem is the way to get there: be awere if u usually get sick in the car! I didn't try the hotel, but I can say that the natural spot around is worthing.

A beautiful spot. The staff was so friendly and pleasant. The buildings and our rooms were very clean and beautifully decorated. Silvana, our lovely hostess at breakfast was so sweet. We enjoyed a delicious dinner there one night and spent the day at the pool one day. The surrounding view was serene. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here while we visited with family in Panettieri, only 15 minutes away. Would love to return again some day!
