Lovely meals!

We really liked it here. Wine selection is amazing. We had pasta with porcini which was very nice. Deserts are lovely too. We would definitely come back. We only didn't done here more often because of the price, it could be slightly lower.

This is a very special restaurant, with excellent food and service. Tucked away, from the main tourist area, this restaurant, takes it food and customer service, seriously! Was very impressed with the beautiful presentation of the food. Strongly recommend a visit.

One of the few I haven't tried in Tropea, must say sorry it's taken so long. Went in a party of six and we had a great time, the food was excellent with the service to match. Some different dishes from the normal and excellent wines to match.

We've been there as we heard it was a good restaurant. We waited to be served almost 10 minutes. we ordered and when we tried to select the wine, they told us to drink the Ciro! so why do they present a wine list? they bringer the bottle, opened it and served us! that was all in all. After 45... More

We had dinner at La Lamia on the recommendation of our hosts at Portercole B & B. It was our favourite meal during our 25 day visit to Italy. The food was excellent, so tasty and filling. My wife really enjoyed the swordfish. The antipasti dishes are large enough to share and try to fit in dessert. The staff were... More

Food was really good, service equally as good but in a back alley so missing a view. If you have more than one night in Tropea for dinner, would definitely recommend having a meal here. Antipasti was excellent and would rate all other food as very good.

Yet another Tropean restaurant set down a small alley way. Top class food against a background of soft jazz. Try the mixed seafood platter as a starter. Almost a meal in itself

We ate here based on the recommendation of our innkeepers at Portercole B&B. The service was truly exceptional but I must add that we ate when the restaurant was not very busy. We had the fresh catch grilled fish and it was excellent. The antipasti was also excellent. The menu was quite extensive and I didn't notice other diners eating... More
