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

Nice enclosed courtyard location. Good atmosphere, about 15-20 people there as well when most of rest were dead or closed (during mayoral speeches evening - amazing hours of rhetoric - my tourist advice would be a digression but "just get the raw and overflow sewage outlets out of the sea" !) Menu variations on most of the rest of the... More

This is an amazing restaurant in Tropea, Italy. A liittle off the beaten track and behind the tourist traps selling indifferent food and spaghettiwitheverything. The menu is varied and the service excellent. I expressed a liking for the particular olive oil that was used in the restaurant for the bread and, because it is not obtainable in the local shops,...

We ate at this restaurant three times in one week because the food was so much better than the other three restaurants we dined at. The setting outside is lovely but as it rained on our third visit we were inside which was very cosy and intimate. I loved the local antipasti so much I had to have it two... More

Not best in Tropea by any means for those accustomed to Italian food and with some knowledge of it. Starter of mixed local sea products was enjoyed by myself but not partner but a similar dish at other restaurants proved better. Pastas were ok but nothing more in truth, a lot of restaurants in the old town target the tourist... More
