We ate here twice this summer because I had eaten here last year and remembered it was good, well it is still great. Lovely swordfish, wonderful Greco wine and the filej with tuna was very memorable. Great down to earth local fish restaurant. recommended

This small family restaurant is located in the basement with outside seating available in a small piazza. We came upon it while strolling through the narrow streets of Tropea. We chose it because it was filled with locals having a great time. Laughter, food and wine...The staff was very helpful..though again, there was little English spoken. We had a delicious... More

This was another restaurant which was recommended in our guidebook- baffled by the choice of restaurants in Tropea, we went for this one and certainly didn't regret it. The menu is great, very authentic, loads of fresh fish and seafood. Outdoor seating area is lovely and staff were very friendly. The head waiter (perhaps owner?) was great- two of my... More

Very small place. You should order the table in advance in order to seat on the terrace - only three or four tables outside. The food is good, but I expected more from this place after reading comments. Nothing special.

Tucked in the back streets of Tropea, a family-run Osteria with fresh seafood caught by the family's boat. Great service, quality and prices.

I really love this place. During my stay in Tropea I've been there twice. Truly simply and honest home cooking. Fishes there were wonderful. Sardine, local tiny fish (called cicimea?), local pasta...my god all truly delicious! The owner and his family were so friendly and very nice? I had great time eating there and chatted with them. There was local... More

I came here for three years in a row (in May), but just one or two nights every time. However, the owner recognized me already in the second year! Incredible. As for the food, the fish is terrific, the wine excellent. What more do you need? I will certainly come back here.

nice location, open air tables, good menu', fresh fish, lovely people...and good wine for few euros and the final bill was surprisingly cheap! (compared with Italian average restaurants)
