Osteria del Vicolo

Calabrian in Parco Nazionale del Pollino

Follow signs from Mormanno’s church to this humble but much-lauded eatery. The menu stars the region’s highly prized lentils, which accompany local grilled meats, form the base for pasta sauce, or come infused with oregano in a divinely simple soup. There's also wood-fired pizza in the evenings.

The family runs a B&B nearby, too.
