“Great meats and truffles”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2012

I have been to this restaurant a few times during the last decades.

Its speciality is without doubt the local truffle, and various meat dishes. These are really well done (as mentioned by others, for instance the fonduta or also the 'carbonara al tartufo').

To my taste, the food lacks a bit of creativity and variety, but others might like exactly this aspect.

The restaurant is located in the historical center of Rende; it is quite small and I remember feeling a bit cramped during some of my visits.

Value for money is on the positive side for me.

“Black Truffle in Calabria”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2012

Hostaria de Mendoza is located in Rende picturesque old town.
Thr atmosphere is familiar, in all aspects, since the restaurant is managed by a nice lady and his son.
The menu is typically local, especially for "country" cuisine: mushrooms, capocollo, caciocavallo cheese and, best of all, black truffle of Calabria. Taste the black truffle in Tagliatelle all'Occhio, together with egg and cream: superb !
Wine list is very good, especially for local strong reds.

“Delicious/Lekker!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2011

Delicious Restaurant,
original / classical cuisine, the price is a bit above the average but the food is fantastic, fresh and extremely tasty.
The soup of Tartufo and the Pappardelle al Cinghiale are exceptional, the Millefoglie not to be missed!
Very good wine list at affordable prices, a real jewel in the heart of the historical center of Rende.
