The food was fantastic everyone enjoyed it. Full of flavour and huge portions. Best food I have eaten I ages. Great value for money. Would recommend to everyone! The chef clearly takes a lot of pride in his food.

Visited for breakfast, good food, pleasant waitress and good value. But really dirty - wish I'd gone upstairs to the toilet before I ordered! Toilet none too clean but once I touched the bannister I went back and rewashed my hands - grained dirt and sticky. Then started to look around the restaurant dirty floor, corners that had built up... More

My husband and I ate here on a Friday evening. It was very quiet, but service was slow and the waitress forgot some of my order. The food was OK but I would not say outstanding, and it was not cheap.

I just had to try breakfast at Calogero's with my family. (we made two visits on consecutive mornings !) Our greeting from the waitress was warm and welcoming and I enjoyed the banter. It must be said that the jovial nature of the welcome was extended to other customers. We had the full English (6 meals in total) and were... More

One of few restaurants in the town; looks nice and modern from the outside. To be fair the food was pretty good, but it's a shame that was a surprise in the end. Once inside it felt uncared for, the bar was busy with the family, service was polite enough. We were warned before hand that we would need cash... More

Although this place was full on Saturday night, there was no problem on Monday evening - we had the place virtually to ourselves. The food was well-cooked, delicious and served with a smile. The dining room was tastefully furnished and the staff welcoming. Price was not too high either. Good eating!

As we had been out for a cream tea didn't want a huge meal so decided to go for 2 starters each. The waitress asked if it was alright to bring them all at one time - we said OK but cannot understand why they couldn't have brought them 2 by 2. Their table management seemed to be slightly disorganised... More

A busy bistro set in the heart of the idyllic town of Lostwithiel, Cornwall. Calogero's was formally known as Terra Nova. We felt that the surname of the Sicilian head chef, who took over the business in 2011, was better suited to the type of food we now serve. Calogero's is pronounced with a soft 'g'. Our menu ranges from authentic home cooked Italian meals to traditional English dishes, using fresh and locally sourced ingredients. We have a large selection of vegetarian dishes and a separate minimal gluten menu (no gluten containing ingredients). Freshly ground Italian sourced coffee and treats are served throughout the day.
