Fodor's Review

Surrounded by a lush garden, with swimming pool, this charming restaurant (and inn) will be a welcome surprise after a drive through the dramatic mountain scenery of Pollino National Park. Gourmet meals cooked by owner-chef Gaetano Alia include the freshest of local produce, prepared with an imaginative twist. Try the pork meat from black pigs dressed with berries and honey; swordfish with a pear-and-onion compote; or, if you're really adventurous, the typical Calabrian spicy candele con n'duia (pasta with a very spicy chili-and-tomato sauce). Wash it all down with your pick of wine from the Locanda cellar. If you like it so much you want to stay, more than a dozen guest rooms are available.
