Dinner was pleasant and we both had the cod which was extremely fresh. The bulgur risotto was great. Not convinced it needed an additional creamy mushroom sauce which made it overly rich. Good but not outstanding.

Right in the heart of Calvi if you are looking for a traditional cross meal U Minellu can be the right choice. Although in tends to be crowded during evenings so a reservation may be the best thing to do, we got a table with...More

Large starter but interesting mix of Corsican tapas. Greater variety of items compared with other restaurants. I also loved the well flavored meatballs in a tasty tomato sauce. Good cooking with attention to detailed and careful seasoning

Partially hidden down a side alley opposite the church, it would be easy to miss this place. The decor is cute and kitsch, it reminded me of more than one hipster eatery in London; all odd chairs and funky lampshades. The restaurant was full when...More

The food was good - rustic and hearty. It was very tasty. Perhaps a little expensive given the style of cuisine. The decor is vintage/hipster with a friendly atmosphere. A very relaxed evening, but not polished, if that is what you are looking for.

We waited over an hour for our meals. I personally had little lasagna which were ridiculous, I don't even understand the dish. It's very disappointing, go to a piazzetta nearby instead.
