We met up recently for a family lunch at Calogero’s recently. The service was fast and friendly. The range of dishes available was good and the prices reasonable especially the 2 for £16 specials. Try the sage and pork meatballs on linguini- excellent. Decent wine...More

Portions are large; food is good. The sticky prawns had an unexpected hot chilli sauce rather than sweet. but were very good; the calamari were rather pale & soggy, could have been crisper. My main criticism is the service. The male waiter was rather surly...More

We ate here twice. My wife ate the same meal the second time, and convinced me to do the same. The dish had three generous sized herb and cheese meatballs. Tasty and tender. The pasta was cooked perfectly. The dried tomato based sauce was full...More

Hello Sam, I'm glad you visited us again and enjoyed your meal, however I am disappointed you have publicly questioned our business practices, as I'm sure you are aware it's a small bistro in Cornwall, therefore it's very... More

A busy bistro set in the heart of the idyllic town of Lostwithiel, Cornwall. Calogero's was formally known as Terra Nova. We felt that the surname of the Sicilian head chef, who took over the business in 2011, was better suited to the type of food we now serve. Calogero's is pronounced with a soft 'g'. Our menu ranges from authentic home cooked Italian meals to traditional English dishes, using fresh and locally sourced ingredients. We have a large selection of vegetarian dishes and a separate minimal gluten menu (no gluten containing ingredients). Freshly ground Italian sourced coffee and treats are served throughout the day.
