What has been happening for Sprinkle?
Recently I visited a lovely restaurant in Chesterfield called Calabria. Calabria is a family run business who sources all their ingredients locally to support local business.
Vittorio Risorto is the proud owner of Calabria. Vittorio’s family moved from Calabria, southern Italy to the beautiful Derbyshire Dales in the early 60’s to establish a new and exciting life.
Since 2010 the family run restaurant has built up a great reputation not only for their excellent food but also their incredible professional staff, that are always smiling and strive to make your night a memorable one. This excellent service is hard to find these days in any restaurant let alone excellent food to go with it.
Calabria have won many awards in the restaurant industry, the latest one being the Ospitalitá Italiana Seal of Quality in 2013. This award is not given out lightly and acknowledges the restaurant’s commitment to a truly authentic taste of Italy.
Success shines though
Jessica Palmer – Coole is Calabria’s restaurant Manger. Jessica has worked hard over the past three years to get Calabria to its high standard. She ensures all members of staff are fully trained in the areas that they work. This is evident when you are there as a customer. Jessica gets a buzz from the interaction from the guests and ensures that all the praise and comments are filtered to the members of the team.
A great menu selection is available and nothing is too much trouble for the team. The menus offer incredible choice and variety to suit all tastes and vegetarian meals are also available. They also offer a Theatre sitting so that you can enjoy Italian style dining before a visit to the theatre situated just around the corner.
Calabria by day is open early for a variety of breakfast options, coffee and for those dashing to work, with a range to take away. Open all day the restaurant offer fantastic wines, cold beers, amazing cocktails and a tasty selection of lunchtime dishes.
By night from 6pm every evening except Sundays, you can indulge in contemporary selection of dishes. Set menu that is also available at lunch time is available Monday to Thursday along with a 7 course tasting experience which is available all through the week alongside the a la carte menu.
Try something new for your Wedding Day!
Calabria have branched out into the Wedding scene and are looking forward to hold your celebratory Wedding Breakfast with them and sample a vast list of foods and canapés. Served with Prosecco it really is a great idea and with the current financial climate a fantastic way to celebrate with close family and friends for the romantic and intimate celebration.
Calabria is perfect for a couple who are looking for a small, romantic and intimate Wedding venue. Ideally situated in the centre of Chesterfield and just a few minutes away is the Chesterfield Registry Office, with various churches including a Catholic and Methodist Church being only a short distance away.
With the freedom to decorate to your ideal theme you cannot want for a better venue as Calabria are more than happy for you to decorate the tables, chairs and all the decoration trimmings that you may wish for to bring your party to life.
Intimate and Romantic
Recently, Calabria hosted a Wedding reception for a couple who were married in the local Registry Office and didn’t want a huge reception. They were allowed to go in and dress up the tables and chairs along with flowers etc to bring some glamour into their day. In the meantime they just wanted a small, intimate, stylish and unique Wedding Reception and this is what they got!
Whether you are looking for a Romantic meal for two or a celebration for an Engagement you will know as soon as you speak to the team you are in safe hands. Calabria listen to your requirements and will do their very best to give you what you want.
With capacity to seat approximately 36 people for a sit down meal or 45 – 50 for drinks and canapés you are really in for an Italian treat! Plans to extend the upstairs into a function room are in place and should be able to hold a party of 20 people for a sit down meal
Calabria is available for exclusive and private hire and price will depend on day but be rest assured that the team will strive to ensure your celebration will be one to remember! With a bar that is licensed to serve through to 2.00am there is no reason to doubt this place really is a little Gem in the sought after area in Chesterfield.
