We ended up going to this restaurant every night; we were very impressed by the delicious food, but what really makes it is the atmosphere; very friendly, especially towards our lively toddler, who made lots of friends! It's very good value as well, and we can highly recommend it for anyone.

If your fed up with the tourist restaurants in the main streets, and looking for an honest and simple family run restaurant who serves super fresh food, don't look any further ... Don't expect an extensive wine list: they only serve a simple but ok regional wine.

it is a big outdoor restaurant, but the staff can manage - go for the seafood, you can see it on display - and try the things that look most exciting - it is worth it. we were there twice - and foodwise great - but some small mistakes errors (problems with payment machine,waiting time etc.,) will give 4 not...

We visit this restaurant three times during our two week long visit in Tropea. I ate the Spaghetti Pomodoro every time and it was soooo good!! The best Pomodoro ever! The restaurant lay a little off but there were like six signs to show you the way so it wasn't a problem. The staff was so kind, and I think... More
