La Rondinella

Reviewed By Ralfino - Washington, DC

Francesca and her team provide wonderful food, prepared fresh from local ingredients in the traditional Calabrian style. My wife and I are counting the days until we return to enjoy La Rondinella, the food, the people and the ambiance - all is perfect. We love finding something new whenever we visit - which is several times a week when in Scalea!

Il Vicolo Vineria

Reviewed By Makuhari - Sydney, Australia

Il Vicolo is a unique wine bar in the old town of San Nicola Arcella. The food and wine are excellent and really good value - served by attentive and friendly staff. The owners have gone to a lot of trouble to provide an authentic traditional Calabrese ambiance with light entertainment most evenings in the summer. Guests sit in a courtyard in front of the vineria which makes for a very pleasant evening outdoors... the best place to go for a drink after dinner!

Ristorante Tari

Reviewed By HJteK - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

For me this is what makes eating out in Italy so great. It's not a pretentious restaurant, it's not adventurous, it's not a Michelin masterpiece. But what it is; a family-run place, it feels like they've been here for generations, serving all the local specialities made in a time-honoured way, they simply do what they do very very well.
The antipasti della casa are a true delight; a meal onto themselves, a feast of excess, all great flavours, all the local treats you could expect in a Calabrian seaside town.
The rest of the menu was excellent too.....effortlessly good. Top that with some great local wine and our sunday-lunch was perfect.......and we were off for a much-needed rest on the beach!

L'Ancora

Il ristorante ancora , da sempre simbolo del mangiar bene , la sua location , direttamente sul mare rende l'eccellenza dei suoi piatti abbinati ad un Panorama mozza fiato uno dei ristoranti piu belli della costa.

Reviewed By MasonMaui - Torfaen

Great place for fresh, local seafood - caught by local fishermen off the waters in front of you. I had the the cuttlefish pasta which was one of the best dishes I have eaten in Scalea. The restaurant looks great and you are only a few metres from the sea so the views are spectacular especially at sundown. One of the owners is British which helps if you don't speak Italian. Prices are also very reasonable. Well worth a visit (or two).

Il Gelato

Il Gelato is a very central place with outdoor Seating, located in the center of the pedestrian area. A perfect place to enjoy an ice-cream (lots of flavors available) and a good cappuccino or a cocktail while watching people walking around and having fun.
