We both had different tasting menus (one is €50, one €60) but both were incredible value (wines were included, and so was the coffee and an aperitif and a digestive). And the food was terrific - all locally sourced seasonal ingredients (numerous types of mushroom, local potatoes, goat, pork, beef) that were whipped ingeniously into an epic tasting menu. Service...

Pietro Lecce continues his current trend of incline to the spectacular. I have come here for decades with family and this time I came with a group from the University of Calabria. This was a prearranged meal that was delicious course after course. Lecce set out to impress the group and he did with the appetizer in his tasting room... More

We were lucky enough to find this place on our recent holiday in Calabria and it really was the food highlight. Great combination of flavours and fantastic service - if only it weren't so far away.

Sooo it is taboo to say any one meal you ate in Italy was the best meal you ate in Italy. But. How about this, foodie friends: if you can, build Camigliatello Silano and its environs into your next trip to Italy, and set aside at least 4 hours to sit at La Tavernetta and indulge in all of the...

Absolutely amazing. The food was traditional and local. It tasted amazing. Not the type of tourist food you find in some of the cities. The place was filled with locals. The truffles were outstanding. The local wine they offered was fantastic. A wonderful wonderful experience.

I have been to this restaurant several times during the last decade and have never been disappointed. The Lecces have set up a really great place here. It does exactly what I expect from a great restaurant: It reflects its location in basing itself on the local traditional food (in this case of the Sila mountains) and adding a personal,... More

This is certainly one of the best restaurants in Calabria. Great attention to the preparation of all the dishes and very attentive choice of the ingredients which come from the area (meats, cheeses, salumi, ceps,...). Friendly and efficient service. Ask them a good suggestion for a local (red) wine. You will need several visits to taste what they can offer!

We have traveled to Italy several times over the last five years. This restaurant could be the best meal we have had yet. Local food cooked perfect. What a gem!
