Visited here on Tuesday for lunch with my husband. Nice welcome from the staff, the food ordered was lovely and the presentation was good. The place itself is nicely decorated and had a nice atmosphere. Will come again.

Haven't been in a while as the two evening visits recently had been disappointing after it had been exceptional for the first few years. Popped in this week mid morn and got a comfy table no problem. Lovely staff and efficient service. Great coffee. Exactly as I'd requested 😀 Spot of brunch which was presented well and tasted fab. Decent... More

First time we have eaten here, celebrating a birthday with friends, the food was well presented and delicious. The five of us chose different food off the menu and from starters to main and dessert everything was a treat to eat. The staff were warm, welcoming and genuine, we will definitely return, thank you for a great evening.

Breakfast, lunch or dinner - Calabria always delivers. A friendly welcome from the staff who are attentive but discrete. A great range of Italian dishes which you don't usually find in other Italian restaurants. The eggs benedict are lovely. One of the best restaurants in Chesterfield.

3 diners disappointed. 2 very happy. Bog standard spag Bol, very dry lasagne, dry over-cooked filo parcels, and mini- mussels. Food here isn't cheap, so we expected more finesse and excitement for our palettes. This restaurant has a great reputation which it sadly didn't live up to for three of us. The other two diners really enjoyed the risotto, ham... More

Booked for an evening meal for 17 foreign business colleagues. The food was superb , from beautifully tender meat to delicious desserts, excellent service by sarah and her colleagues. A very relaxing atmosphere and at an extremely reasonable price. My colleagues expressed this was the best meal they had had during their visit.

We found the restaurant by chance and we're delighted with our choice. There was a good choice of food to suit all tastes and the presentation was truly unique. I had duck liver pate with a scrumptious chutney and my husband had a delicious leek and potato soup. The main courses were equally well balanced (I had baked cod and... More
