While touring the Island of Beauty, a stop in Calvi is a must for an amazing culinary experience for those who appreciate earthy Corsican eats.
Because not only does it offer a 180° view on the old harbor from its terrace, La Table Di A Loghja also boasts a remarkable market driven cuisine. Here is the place to come and be mesmerized by a pancake style blinis made with chestnut flour twisted with shard, a poached egg and fried pancetta (12€). It melts in the mouth, has a crispy taste, pure bliss. Same goes for the grilled sea-fished razor clams sprinkled with onions and anchovies (11€), to be savored with a organic glass of Abatucci rosé wine. And that’s only the beginning.
Their pizzas offer the best of Corsica such as a mix of Nustrale charcuterie (coppa, lonzo, saucisson 12€). More surprising, breaded mozzarella associated with an egg on the Branda (11€). The house also offers top notch meats and spiny lobsters cooked in a wood oven with a choice of house fries, seasonal vegetables or risotto.
And for a grand finale? A sablé chestnut cake, with mascarpone, carpaccio of mango (7€).
The plus: a warm and friendly welcome, the authentic setting and the really terrific quality price ratio.
