Uncloistered Monthly Poetry Reading

Every second Sunday of the month. Organizer Jonie McIntire hosts this reading at Calvino's. "This reading series is like no other in Toledo. We bring poets in from around the country, we give new and established Toledo-area poets a forum to share their work, and we are able to pay the poets for their time because of funding provided by an Arts Commission Accelerator Grant made possible through support from ProMedica, the Ohio Arts Council, Surdna Foundation & The Kresge Foundation." -Jonie McIntire via Facebook


We love to be able to accommodate as many customers as possible. With limited seating and a lot of traffic, our dinner service can get busy. We ask that if you're bringing a party to dine with us, whether it be 2 people or 12 people, that you make a reservation for seating if you aren't prepared to wait. Reservations the day of can be made within reason but we appreciate a 24 hour notice. Parties larger than 13 people are asked to reserve our private lounge.
