We visited on a Saturday. We had a superb risotto and a very good pizza. Sitting outside in the square next to the church made for a very atmospheric location Recommended

I had a mushroom risotto here which cost €8. I could definitely detect white wine and good quality chicken stock in the flavours. Very good food and excellent service.

This is one of the few dining options in the old city center and much frequented by tourists (like us :) We set off with a shared starter and a pasta as mains which was (more) than enough. The starter was a collection hot and cold antipasti. We especially liked the spicy anchovy. The pasta's were good and filling. Also... More

I have eaten here several times over the past 20 years and know good Calabrian food (my relatives live in Cosenza and I cook it as well). My son and I ate here for dinner one night because we were staying near centro storico and it was within walking distance. Usually we only get the pizza but this time my... More

This restaurant is beside the cathedral. Although there were two large parties dining on th we evening we were there, the service we received from everybody was friendly and efficient in every way. We highly recommend the antipasti dish which includes a number of unusual local ingredients. Following this we had what was described as a vegetable soup, which turned... More

The appetisers platter is excellent and quintessentially Southern: frittelle (fried bread dough), fried and grilled veggies, ham and chorizo, cheese, nduja (a spicy patè of sausage) and sardella (a spicy patè of small anchovies and sardine). The location, hidden in the centre of the old town, is a gem. Interesting and home made pasta, but nothing too special. Definitively recommended.

With the church on the Piazza Duomo being the principal one the the area diners were treated to the 'gravitous' and razzle dazzle of a summertime, sunset wedding which seemed to make dinner all the more special. Authentic Calabrian cuisine was a novelty and a treat with generous servings in a stunning setting. The surly service though did spoil the... More

Our group of four stumbled upon Calabria Bella after a lot of hapless wondering during the deserted siesta period of the day. The restaurant was hosting a private gathering but made room for us. Our waiter listened to our order and then suggested alternatives that we hadn't even known we actually wanted. We shared two servings of antipasto plates, and... More

One of the best restaurants we visited in Italy. All dishes were excellent. It's a local restaurant with an excellent chef and modest pricing. The ambiance is perfect: authentic Calabrese yet very warm and appealing. Don't miss it!
