We had a very delicious meal here tonight. Very helpful service. Interesting menu. Try the gnocchi with little shrimp and tomatoes. Also the sardine tart and potato crusted bass. Great food.

Pinturicchio is another hidden gem in the back streets of Tropea. The menu is interesting and always freshly cooked. The antipasti Tipico is amazing and enough for two to share. The pizza is always good and never expensive. Try his house wine - its delicious!!

The nicest place to eat in Tropea in my view. Situation in a narrow street, mainly outside, is fun and buzzy. Food was on three separate occasions always good to very good, appetising; fresh fish, great pasta and pizzas. A cut above the rest but NB reservations essential unless you want to wait half an hour or more; very popular... More

My wife & I liked this restaurant so much we went back on our last night. The food was wonderful & typical of Calabria & was accompanied by excellent wine. The whole meal was served by excellent waiters. As it was July, we had the great pleasure of eating in the open air. The restaurant is very popular & it... More

This was one of our best restaurant experiences of our trip. We didn't have a reservation but they provided a nice table after a short wait. Even through we new most of the menu, out waitress translated everything for us. We were not disappointed in the seafood appetizer. The eggplant was great too. Main seafood dishes were very good.

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
