“The BEST restaurant in Badolato by far!”

Catojo dello Spinetto
Ranked #4 of 16 Restaurants in Badolato
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$21 - US$32
Description: 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!

We stumbled on this little gem by accident and had a fantastic dining experience, I would 100% recommend it to anyone travelling to Badolato or the region. The setting is unique, the staff are friendly and most importantly the food is delicious and priced very reasonably. Two young French chefs from Paris are working their magic in the kitchen and producing a mouth watering daily changing set menu using local products. Go go go !

Not only a wonderful place where to enjoy a dinner in a real traditional "Catojo" (cave) with an amazing view on the coast in one of the most characteristics and beautiful hamlet in the area. This place has an incredible food quality that reinterpret calabria's traditional dishes giving them new life. Incredible attention to customers! Truly advised! A "must" if you're going to stay around Badolato!
