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

We absolutely enjoyed dinner there with fresh pasta (cipollo) and a freshly grilles steak! The staff was great and very welcoming, the Italian guests were... More

I like this restaurant, the family who run it are lovely, they do good honest home cooked local food, freshly made and wonderful wine not from the barrel but from the bottle. Lovely spot

This is a restaurant where the staff, wine and food make all the difference. It’s situated in an alley 2-3 blocks from the main street and in a place you easily pass without taking notice. Don´t! We spent 14 days in Tropea and i´d rate this as runner up for best restaurant. The food is really good and i'd recommend... More

so good we went back the next night, and the onlt thing that stopped us going again, is that collectively we had eaten or tasted nearly everthing on the menu. Fabulous & friendly do try the lemoncello!

This year, we naturally went back for dinner on our... More
