Walking through the old town in Tropea, my husband and I discovered this delightful family-run osteria. Friendly staff and delicious food in a cozy environment. We will definitely return!

The sign for free wi-fi caught my attention, seemed to be decent so I decided to try it. Indifferent the quality of food. If you visit Italy and Calabria you have more expectations.

Great osteria. Simple, fresh menu. Delicious fish and the best spaghetti alle vongole I've had. Ever. Cozy atmosphere and attentive service. I made it my default place for lunch having gone at least 6 times.

We have just returned back from 14 nights in Tropea and this was one of the restaurants that I had targetted beforehand after reading Tripadvisor reviews. It is very small, wedged between two of the back medieval lanes. On first find, we walked past as we noticed that it was small & cramped but it was the swarms of mosquitoes... More
