In Calabria, a history of French rule under the House of Anjou and Napoleon, along with Spanish influence, affected the language and culinary skills as seen in the naming of things such as cake, gatò, from the French gateau. Seafood includes swordfish, shrimp, lobster, sea urchin and squid. Macaroni-type pasta is widely used in regional dishes, often served with goat, beef or pork sauce and salty ricotta.

Main courses include Frìttuli (prepared by boiling pork rind, meat and trimmings in pork fat), different varieties of spicy sausages (like Nduja and Capicola), goat and land snails. Melon and watermelon are traditionally served in a chilled fruit salad or wrapped in ham.[54]Calabrian wines include Greco di Bianco, Bivongi, Cirò, Dominici, Lamezia, Melissa, Pollino, Sant'Anna di Isola Capo Rizzuto, San Vito di Luzzi, Savuto, Scavigna, Verbicaro.

Another famous dish that has a Calabrese background is their famous Calabrese pizza. This pizza has a Neapolitan based structure with fresh tomato sauce and a cheese base. However, what makes this type of pizza unique from others is it's spicy, but rather tasty flavor. Some of the ingredients included in a Calabrese pizza are: thinly sliced hot sopressata, hot capicola, hot peppers and fresh mozzarella. A Calabrese style pizza has became a well known menu item in many Italian restaurants around the world.
