We were literally led to this by our B&B host (Valle De Granone, excellent). 5 minutes off the centre in a beamed lower level of a house. Cosy, pretty. Lovely woman who is head chef, maitre d' and waiter all in one. Menu is on the board. Serious kitchen.
Delicious delicate anti-pasta: little plate after little plate of delicacies. The chef selected dishes for my wife (no gluten). Then two delicious primi. very decent house wine.
E37 for two.

We speak almost no Italian and the waitresses spoke no English but it didn't matter. We shared an antipasti (10 euros) but there were so many gorgeous little dishes, it felt like a double portion. Then we each had a pasta. I had the paccheri, a local Calabrian pasta, thick tubes. Delicious. With a really rich tomato-based sauce with two fresh fish, the bones artfully arranged and the seafood flavour permeating the sauce. My better half had handmade pasta with sausage and porcini mushrooms. (Both were 14). We had a cheap bottle of 'archaelogical wine' which was fine for 13 euros, light of body. And I had a pastry as a dessert (4 euros), a crostata which I'm sure was homemade. My only problem is: how do people have the appetite to have both a pasta and a secondi. I really wanted to try some of their delicious main dishes, but had not room after the pasta! All up, 44 euros for the two of us. We loved this place: local flavour and colour, wonderful warmth of service. We felt lucky to have experienced local Calabrian cuisine.

Don’t expect any English spoken or even printed menus, but go if you want an excellent meal. The antipasti starter should not be missed. Washed down with an excellent wine it was a good evening and staff coped well with a sudden influx of of British diners.

This restaurant was recommended to us by Mario, the host at Tenuta Ciminato Greco, an amazing hotel in Rossano set in an olive orchard just minutes from old town. We happened to dine at Mastre Gustine on the feast day of San Nilo and the town was packed with townspeople taking part in a festive religious parade through the streets. After attending mass in the cathedral we followed our GPS (thank goodness for the rented wifi hotspot) to this out of the way gem of a restaurant. We were the first diners there and watched while the owner wrote the evening's specials on a blackboard. She explained all the choices to us in Italian; we understood only half of what she said. But with the choices she recommended coupled with our bumbling Italian (insalata verde?) we ended up having a perfect meal. Paccheri with ricciola (large tube shaped pasta with amberjack) was phenomenal, the tagliata di vitello arrosto (roast veal) was savory and tender. And the bread!! And an offer of a homemade biscotti for the road! Until we return to Vineria Master Gustine and to Tenuta Ciminata we will cherish the memory of an exceptional dinner, a great hotel, and a lively and vibrant Calabrian town.
