Lovely little restaurant off the main street. Friendly atmosphere with seating inside and in the little street. The mixed seafood EU 18 was excellent and a side salad of Tropea onions and tomatoes EU 3.5. A quarter carafe of local wine was fine. Would come again.

Upon our arrival, the restaurant was not full yet but soon was crowded, with people patiently queuing for a table. We enjoyed a large selection of seafood for antipasti, it was delicious and very fresh. I had grilled sole-like fish for my main course and loved it - seasoned with lemon and parsley and a hint of garlic. Friendly service.

Excellent food, fine Calabrian wines, and a friendly host, who recognized me after three years. Wonderful as ever. Still the best place to go for quality dining in Tropea. Looking forward to come here again.

We were recommended this small restaurant from the port people: I am glad we followed their advice and we booked. The place is small, room for 30-40 people at most. But the atmosphere is great: owner is friendly and serve excellent home-style Calabrese food. We really enjoyed dining there.

Wonderful fresh fish and seafood, the clams and vongole were to die for! The owner was very nice and helpful. Compared to the other restaurants, this was definitely the best! High quality, tasty food! Just be aware that you can't pay with credit cards, but there's an ATM arounf the corner.

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
