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

This restaurant I would rate as no more than average. If you like pizza (I don't) they have about 3 pages of different varieties, but if you want something different, the selection is not fantastic, Meat was gristly and tough and the first course of Aubergine Parmigiana would have been very good had it been served hot. The Prosecco was... More

I ate here last year and enjoyed a great meal and wine but this year it was disappointing; rushed, very average pizza and the house wine was awful. Shame

In an area of such friendly and polite people this place was a disappointment. Always busy largely due to the romantic setting down an alleyway in the old town but service was awful, food very much average, not a pleasant experience at all and would not go back again.

Average cuisine, service could use imprivement. Me and my wife had tqo pizzas there which were ok but not more, nothing special. No house wine, only bottle wine. Bad value for price ratio. At the end our bill was wrongly calculated and they wanted to charge us 2 euro more(pure calculation error), as said much room for improvement in service... More
