The staff is nice and the food is great! If you sit outside you have great view towards the valley. They pick fresh ingredients every day and since not all of them are available at all times time the change the menu daily.

Set in the beautiful village of Badolato Superiore, our terrace enjoys views of the sea and mountains. But what really sets Catojo Spinetto apart is our new approach to dining. Every day we have a new fixed price menu of 'tasting and sharing platters' for the table to share - using fresh, local and seasonal ingredients in a way that is both delicious and different!
