I had my last dinner before leaving Tropea in this restaurant-pizzeria and it was a very good choice. The restaurant is busy from locals, so it means that they know that this place is good. I waited 10 minutes to get my table and 20 mins to get my pizza, but I am glad I waited! The pizza was very... More

Called in for a pizza, which was fine, though nothing special. Can't really comment on the rest of the menu. The price was certainly reasonable. We were surprised though when a group of youngsters lit up and were given an ash tray by the waiter (we were indoors). People on the next table to them complained, at which the waiter... More

Dire pessimo e' dire veramente poco. Sono dei ladri per quanto ti fanno pagare per piatti schifosi!!!! NON ANDARE!!!! Has definitely got to be the worst place I've been to. Tiny dishes that aren't fresh and they rip you off big time. I come to Tropea every year and this was the worst restaurant of all time. My boyfriend and... More

We were attracted to this restaurant as it was very busy with locals, it also has a nice split level setting in its own courtyard. Decor is traditional as is the food, the seafood and pasta is excellent with friendly and attentive service. Whilst this does not have the views of some of the Tropea restaurants is has a nice...

This restaurant is at the end of via Regina Margarita in a courtyard and not visible from the road, it is obviously popular and the presence of large, real, Pizza ovens glowing almost white hot was reassuring.Pasta starters were followed by superb Pizza's and good Tiramisu. A bottle of Pinot Grigio,Mineral water and coffee's brought the bill to exactly 50€.... More
