Fresh fish, wonderful landscape, interesting food experience. It isn't a 5 for the following reason: The staff can't lean the hands over the customers tables during the service. Prices(€): Appetizers 8-24 Main course around 15 2nd course around 15 Wine(3/4L from 14 to 40) Dessert up To 6

You can find the freshest seafood in this restaurant. If you are a tuna lover this is the right place from you! also try the spaghetti alla bottarga. The atmosphere at the restaurant is wonderful, highly recommended.

Wife and I had a plate of carbonara with swordfish. Excellent. Attentive staff and as we came early by Italian standards we had the place to ourselves. Going back in February and will eat here again.

I am native Italian (from Reggio Calabria) and every single year, during the vacations that I spend in Calabria, I go to have dinner at Chiringuito at least two times.

The food is outstanding and every dish has the signature of Chef Antonio which has brought something different in typical seafood recipes. The restaurant is family run with passion and the service is accurate and attentive. In all my visits I ordered the full antipasto crudo... More

Brought here by locals, since they had been talking about this place for a long time. The cousine is really refined, combination of flavours which really give you the thrill of a trip through the enchanting journey of taste!
