We stumbled upon Vecchio Forno while meandering the back streets on a Tuesday night, many of the restaurants were closed or empty. This Pizzeria was very busy, so we decided to go. Initially we sat outside but it seemed like the more interesting atmosphere was inside so I asked for a table inside when one became available. We saw the... More

Chanced upon here looking for a good wood burning oven pizzeria and spoke to the owner as he prepared for the evening. Gets very busy at night so arrive early to get a nice table in one of the alleyways. Service from one young waiter was a bit surly but other than that excellent. Great selection of pizzas with local... More

Wonderful to eat at this place and to enjoy the unique atmosphere at a very modest price. The home made sweets are also wonderful to enjoy. I'm highly satisfied.

We ate in Pizzeria Vecchio Forno on friday January 4. We had a pasta with porcini, a bistecca maiale, a pizza porcini and a insalata Tropeana. The taste was good, service very friendly. Later that evening, however we got sick and were throwing up all night, together with diarrhea. It isn't our habit to complain in public, but we couldn't... More

It all started with a recommendation from our gelato pal, Antonio @ Caffe del Corso. We wanted something cheap, cheerful and authentic in the pizza department for dinner that night. He immediately told us about Pizzeria Vecchio Forno. It was late afternoon and we thought we would wander back to our B&B via Antonio's directions to the pizzeria. We found... More

I've been customer of Vecchio Forno since I was 7 and I never found a Pizza Napoletana better than this. The place is really cosy, old italian style, like in movies and the city of Tropea is simply astonishing. If you pass by, go there and you'll even save lots of money coz the prices are cheap!
