“Good food in a very enjoyable setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

We have visited this restaurant since it was at "U Minellu" and have always been impressed by the high standard of Corsican cooking here. Now sitting in a gorgeous square, it is so good to see the same waiters providing the same high standards we had previously experienced.
Particular favourites of ours are the Spaghetti Roquefort, the Escalope Cap Corse, and the Sanglier (wild boar). Salads and sautéed potatoes are also glorious, and the pichets of local rose wine are perfect on a summer evening.
Good food in a very enjoyable setting.

“Fave local resto, charming setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2014

Thus is an extremely popular place teeming with locals. Seating is in outside plaza and offers really tasty local rustic earthy cuisine.
Everyone there has a great time enjoying the outdoor ambience and well prepared local cuisine. The three terrines made of local ingredients including wild boar (a specialty) are delicious.
The veal chop was tasty, of a bit dry but the sauce with wild mushrooms was welcome.

Overall a good intro to Corse cuisine and local feel.

“Excellent lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

During a recent holiday to Calvi we spent a very pleasurable lunch time at this establishment. We took advantage of the 3 course set menu at 19 Euros. It was excellent. The service was very welcoming and efficient too. Please be aware that they do not take credit cards, which we were informed of before ordering. The fayre is Corsican and of an extremely high quality. I started with a fresh Salad of cold meats and cheeses and my partner, the cold meats and pate's. One of which was 'Blackbird', a local speciality. Not something we had experienced before, but quite tasty. We both then enjoyed the Wild Boar with Polenta. This was really delicious, served in a large frying pan, straight from the oven for us both to share. Dessert was Cheese Board with more crusty bread and local Fig jam. For me, home made Cheese Cake with whipped cream. All washed down with a splendid Pichet of local Rose wine - a 50cl jug for only 7 Euros. Very good value indeed. I would highly recommend this Restaurant. Watching other dinners, there were many other tasty choices on the Al la Carte too. Check out the toilets, as they are 'fun'.

“Tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2014

We wanted to have something simple and based to TA reviews we went to A Piazzetta. Location is interesting, on a small square. Decoration of the restaurant is also interesting, The menu is not long, and you have the opportunity also of the corsian menu. We rather tried spaghetti with langoustines and spaghetti with gambas. Both were tasty, though in my opinion spaghetti with langoustines was much better (you get approx 10 langoustines). That was mostly due to the tomato sauce as the spaghetti with gambas had quite heavy cream sauce. We payed 60 eur in total for two persons including wine.
