“Normal place, good food”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Reading the good comments of this place I decided to visit it with my wife for a late lunch.
We arrived at 2.40pm and we were welcome, which is nice as often, in Italy, arriving after 2.30 means not being served as the kitchen is closed. I ordered an octopus salad, my wife a grilled fish of the day. Both were good without being extraordinary. Service was attentive and cordial. I paid a bill of 50 euro including 1/4 of house wine and two coffees, which means that the place is not cheap.
The place is located on the road towards Tellaro, close to the parking area. No real view even from the patio.
In all, an honest place with good food.

“Great food and Great value”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

A very popular restaurant and we know why. The food and service are excellent and they served traditional food. The restaurant was buzzing with Italians on holiday too. We ate on the verandah.

Great little restaurant in the village of Tellaro. Great little restaurant just outside the village. Authentic Ligurian cuisine at reasonable prices.

“Subject/Objective”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

We`ve stayed in Tellaro a number of times but until our last visit at the beging of May was the first time we`d eaten at La Caletta. we enjoyed the experience sufficiently to eat there twice during the course of our stay.
Reading earlier reviews reveals the subjective nature of food enjoyment. for our part two visits should speak for itself...excellent on each occasion with the very minor hitch of a slight delay on our daughter`s main course order largely attributable, I`m sure, to our preety poor attemps at ordering in [Yorkshire] Italian, very quickly rectified anyway so no real problem.

Objectively welcome, service and atmosphere couldn`t be faulted. Salvato, the owner`s son, was the epitomy of Italian charm and Father, front of house and Mother, largely unseen in the Kitchen, were friendly, attentive and played a large part in our decision to return after the initial visit.

At a time of year when there are, perhaps, fewer tourists about it`s always a good sign to find a restaurant completely full of Italians, no doubt local, enjoying their food amidst loud conversation, laughter and creating an atmosphere which it`s a pleasure to be part of.

We liked it!
