Excellent fish-based menu, very good pizza

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.

The place itself is nice and the atmosphere is good but we can't say the same regarding the service. After having arrived at the place they told us that we had to wait max for 15 minutes but instead almost an hour passed! Moreover once we had our table we had to wait other 20 minutes before a waitress came... More

Our family of four had a memorable dinner experience. Upon arrival there were no free tables outside, so we opted for the air conditioned inside hall - and were not disappointed. We had a selection of local cheese and cold cuts - wonderful. All our main courses did not arrive simultaneously, but we actually did not mind, they handled the... More

This restaurant is not a place you just will walk by. You have to find your way in all the alleys of Tropea. Great food. No mest. Pizza and fish dishes. Great food. Well worth the visit. Hard to get table during certain hours.

Great restaurant with lovely food and wine! Be sure to book a table in high season though cause otherwise you might miss out! Really great, take fish here it's amazing! I had fish carpaccio and then some day catched local fish and both dished where one of the best meals I've ever had in a restaurant. Reasonable prices as well!

This was my second time at Al Pinturicchio (I went last summer and forgot to write a review). Absolutely incredible food. Simple and fresh. We sat outside, but the indoors dining room is equally lovely. Service is very amicable and you must try the seafood crudo! Can't wit to go back!

We went here because of a recommendation from our B&B hostess and despite the rather low ranking on the TA website . Very glad we did . It's a bit hard to find , though nothing in Tropea is that hard , but worth it . Very nice physical plant and decor . Quite comfortable with minimal noise problems .... More

We only visited Al Pinturicchio once during our stay but I'd definitely go back next time I'm in Tropea. We were given a recommendation to try the pizzas so that's what we did & they were great. I had the Vampata made with local salami & Nduja so very firey & my husband had the quatro stagione, both were very... More
