Good and fairly quiet...

One of the three best in Tropea. Lovely location in a square not far from the top of the steps. Service attentive. Food interesting and good for Tropea (where in the tourist dives one can eat very poorly). A bit over-priced and portions are not gigantic.

We really enjoyed our lunch and whole experience, at Da Cece restaurant in Tropea. Set in an atmospheric square, away from the busy tourist sections of the old town, it is a quiet haven, to relax in and enjoy, your dining experience. This is such an authentic Calabrian restaurant and the service and food is excellent.

Nice restaurant, gorgious food and very good service. If you want to get the best fish of the day ask Nicola. His expertise and passionate suggestions will impress you. Prices in the average. All in all very good.

We went to this restaurant after reading many highly positive reviews, but it did not live up to our expectations. The wine was expensive. The portions for some courses were small. The antipasto was very ordinary and lacked the flair we have enjoyed in other restaurants.

The food was very good in this restaurant, I loved the flavours and all was very well cooked.

I came here last year when I was on my own doing an Italian course and I remembered how great the food was and how lovely the waiters are along with the romantic beautiful setting. I returned with my husband this summer and he loved it as much and chose it for our final meal of the holiday. Vincenzo is... More
