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.

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. Because we visited out of season the restaurant was just getting going for the season so the atmosphere was quite quiet which is the only reason it doesn't get 5 stars.The service was very good, friendly and efficient and we would definitely...

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

This is a nice place to sit and have a meal, down one of the quieter back streets of the old town. Service is friendly and polite and nothing is rushed, food is of a decent standard, not the best but certainly among the best in the old town, fresh produce cooked well, would certainly recommend for a meal in...

Easily found as signed off to the right of the main road down through the town after the main piazza. Set in a beautiful square the outside space is enclosed by lush green plants the waiter was welcoming and informative. After ordering antipasti rustici we received courtesy of the chef some delicious fried melanzane balls. The antipasti was a delightful... More

After a disappointing meal at La Pentola D'Oro we tried Da Cece and went back again twice it was so good. This was before we discovered Il Convivio which is even better. The service at Da Cece is delightful and the food delicious and it probably is the best vino rosso della casa in Tropea. Large outdoor seating area that... More

We were lucky to get the last table in this restaurant on a busy evening, and boy, were we happy that we did! This was BY FAR the best meal we had during our week long stay in Tropea. If you only visit one restaurant in Tropea, make it this one. The outdoor seating area is absolutely lovely. We had... More
