Nice restaurant with good food

We had a table outside which was great because the ambience is fantastic. We thought it was very nice that they hang paintings outside when dining. The food was fine and the price quality ratio is good.

We returned to Al Pinturicchio after a few years and, again, we were most impressed. Firstly we were given over to a young lady waitress who spoke English as our original male waiter didn't speak English well. She was delightful and helpful. We were most taken with the Cipolla fritelles and ended up ordering them most nights as we returned... More

Went for dinner around 8:30 and were shocked to see it full of diners already eating. But didn't have to wait too long for a table and were given a glass of house wine for the wait. Nice decor (no outdoor seating this time of year). The food was great (pasta, fish) and the house wine very good. Service was... More

Although they do have tables inside the best place is to sit outside in the narrow alleyway where the atmosphere is very lively. We started with perfectly grilled calamari followed by an anchovy gratin and potato crusted seabass with a side of Caprese salad. Everything was delicious and the portions were very generous. We were even comped lemoncello after our... More

A really quaint little gem in the back streets of Tropea. We had local antipasti to share to begin and it was amazing - some of the nicest I've had. My boyfriend had gnocchi with prawns and I went for tuna 'Tropean' style. Both delicious - as was their house wine. Make sure to go if you're in the area!

Exactly what we were looking for. Beautiful place in a little alley with seats outside, paintings hanging from the walls in the street at night when it turns to a restaurant. Pizza very very delicious. Tuna steak fantastic. Pasta dishes great all accompanied with a nice fresh salad. The staff are so nice and friendly that they make you feel... More

Excellent meal in a beautiful location in the historic center of Tropea. Personnel is young and competent. Price is about right for a fish-based menu, and the pizza is quite good. The only downside is the long waiting line during high-season, even if you book a table in advance.

Amazing atmosphere, sitting outside at a table in the beautiful back streets. Make sure to make a reservation because otherwise you may have to wait (especially at dinner time). Don't just order seafood because portions aren't big enough.
