My friend choose this restaurant, after reading all the good reviews on tripadvisor, to have dinner on her birthday. Unfortunatelly we were both very disappointed. I ate a pizza and my friend fish. Both meals were disgusting. This restaurant is a tourist trap.

It is the 4th time we stayed in Tropea (to do an italian language class at the piccolo universita- also a very good choice, if you want to get into the italian language). After savouring the food at Pinturiccio 3 times we do have to state that this is simply the best restaurant inTropea. The food is fabulous- the pizza... More

Excellent little restaurant with amazing food and wine. Best restaurant we have been to so far and will be going back. House wine red is also excellent. Greta was very helpful. If you are looking for Calabrian cuisine please go here. Lucio

This was our 4th vacation to Tropea and on every visit we go to Pinturicchio at least 2 times. The outdoor seating is perfect being away from the main piazza. The service is always friendly and professional. The food is of course the main reason we go. We always have a tough choice between the seafood, pasta or the pizza.... More

Food, wine, service very good and we enjoyed watching the amount of locals waiting for pizza to go and inside the restaurant. Definitely got a 'local' vibe here which we love. If you are in Tropea - must try,

I think one of the reviews stated poor selection except for Pizza. I agree but maybe just average selection. A number of what appeared to be locals were eating pizza which looked quite good. We ordered their fish special which I found to be somewhat disappointing. A group of 4 next to us were also having the fish special we... More

A group of us arrived In Tropea after travelling for 18 hours. Our wonderful tour guide, Tania Pascuzzi, took us to Al Pinturicchio for our first introduction to Calabrian cuisine. We were hungry and tired but this restaurant completely restored our spirits. We enjoyed a fabulous selection of antipasti, a number of them featuring the amazing cipolla onions for which... More

This was our favourite restaurant in Tropea and I have never had a better Tuna steak anywhere I've visited! The restaurant is quite compact so you must either arrive a little early or be prepared to queue! We visited the restaurant twice and on our final visit on Good Friday the place was absolutely packed but the service was as... More
