Service; We went here 2 out of our 3 nights in tropea, service was faultless! Bread baskets were replenished as soon as they were empty, the waiters were friendly and forgiving of our... More

Eat at this restaurant! The ambiance in the courtyard was lovely. The food and wine was delicious and the service was excellent! The food was so good, that we went twice in three days! The pasta, fish, bread and dessert were spectacular!

We ate here twice during our 7 day stay in tropea and we just loved it! Nice place, very money worth, amazing food and great service. We tried both antipasti, primi and secondo, all amazing! But the pasta is always a safe card in Italy! You won't be disappointed

We have been in this restaurant twice for dinner during our stay in Tropea in June 2015, and loved it the most among the places in the town (at least it was closed during lunch time). They serve pretty typical food for Tropea but everything we tried was really delicious and beautifully served. Local wine (by glasses) was also amazing!... More

Located in narrow alley close to cathedral occupying a small square. Quality of food excellent and nicely presented. Staff helpful and hard working. Service got a bit erratic once restaurant got busy but when we asked for something it was delivered promptly. I would go again..

We had two evening meals here and would have repeated the experience but we were moving on. The courtyard is like a stage set and the food is delicious. Do try the pasta with sweet mussels and the tiramisu. The waiters were helpful and it is great place to relax over a meal away from the crowds and the prices... More
