I must admit. this has a perfect location, midway down the Corso Vittorio Emanuele ll. In the morning, it has perfect shade for that morning coffee and pastries for those who indulge. We went here our first morning and were served by the "older lady" (who we summised was the owner) and she was... read more

Simply the best coffee, the best gelato and the best cornetto in town. Have the tartufo. Superb! Great place for people watching after dinner and, again, best coffee bar for breakfast. Lovely staff.

We were in Tropea for 5 days and the first night we discovered Caffe del Corso and have been back everyday after! The gelato is delicious but the wait staff, especially Francesca, made us feel like family every night we went! I cant believe anyone would have a negative word to say! Thanks Caffe del Corso!!

We ordered two "piccolo" bowls of icecream and were given four small melon ball sized scoops in each. Our friends got a granita and an icecream cone, and we also had a sprite. This cost €24 all together! Each "piccolo" bowl of icecream was €5. Absurd. I don't even know how it added up to that. To top it off,... More

We were in Tropea at April, so the place was almost empty but we loved it. Great coffee and pastries and lovely atmosphere. The service was very kind.

There is a world of difference with ice creams. This place is the best in town by far. Try the strawberry granita- yumm. The boss appeared with some crunchy nibbles and a sort of piece of marzipan and suggested dunking! Very friendly people who were very appreciative of our custom. There are tables and chairs outside and as its on... More

Based on Trip Advisor recommendations, we sought out this little gelarteria on the main street of old town Tropea (corso Vittorio Emanuelle). We went in and were looking at the gelati and tartufo (new to us) when the owner came up and gave us a free custard cornetto. Yum! We then selected a chocolate and a pistacchio tartufo and sat...
