This restaurant is located in a beautiful narrow street in the vicinity of the main square of Tropea. It has very unique atmosphere with only a few tables located right on the street. The food was delicious. It was one of the best pasta and dessert we had during our stay in Tropea and believe me we visited many restaurants... More

We stopped one night in Tropea on the way to Sicily. Tropea disappointed, but this restaurant was a highlight. Great food, excellent service and a beautiful location. Go - you won't be disappointed.

We found this place walking the narrow alleys of Tropea. We sat outside innthe street in the warm evening. The place seemed to be run be a family, and a dude named Vincenzo was our waiter. He was polite, swift and in all everything you'd could exoect from a genuine italian guy. The pasta was delicious, the sallad crispy and... More

The reviews below will tell you that it is tucked away down a narrow alley. But don't be put off. The food is top class and reasonably priced. The waiting staff are young, quiet, but break into a smile once you get chatting to them, especially Vincenzo, I think that's his name. In a one week stay in Tropea we... More

We decided to dine here after seeing the beautiful cobblestone walls during an afternoon walk. It hidden away in an alleyway, but worth checking out. We were politely greeted by Vincenzo at the door. We sat in the back to have a more intimate setting. Vincenzo was very friendly and his English was on point. The food was the best... More

Tropea is mostly a resort town and so it is not unexpected to see literally a hundred restaurants one after another in the center of town (and all with basically the same menu). And in this sea of seafood joints La Pentola d'Oro shines like a lighthouse compared to the others. Tucked away in a little street at the end... More

Nice place but the service was disappointing. Two girls were serving and they really didn't display that much interest. Ordered a 25 € bottle wine, that was opened and set on the table no tasting no pouring. Same goes for the food. No interest what so ever.
