Ristorante alla Pescatora
Via Cristoforo Colombo, 32 , Scilla; Tel.: 0965-754147
Right on the sea front with a pleasant covered veranda is this simple place serving classic Calabrese and Sicilian cuisine with an emphasis on seafood. Try the linguine alla pescatora, the risotto of black Venus rice with radicchio rosso and shrimp or the involtini di pescespada (swordfish rolls). For a sweet finish, there is fresh orange torte, lemon mousse and tiramisł. Good choice of regional wines.
