tasty modern italian

Everything was nice and cooked with quality. Was unlucky with the last forkful .. there was some sand in the final part of the squid that ruin the delicious dinner. In any case overall the best restaurant I visited in Tropea.

We had dinner there and we ate a fantastic fresh home made pasta (la fileja) with original Tropea's onion, sausage and parmigiano.

We visited this restaurant whilst we were in Tropea and the food was absolutely superb as was the service. For a tourist destination were usually you receive average food and service this was outstanding. Worth a visit try the risotto Al pescatore

For a solo traveller wanting a decent lunch, I came here after reading good reviews on TA and also the way they acknowledge passers-by, even those travelling alone (i.e. Happy to take your business). I ordered a mixed Calabrese starter and a pasta dish, with a small carafe of house red, some sparkling water and an espresso - all totalling... More

My wife and I dined here with a friend for dinner. My wife and I enjoyed a fine sparkling wine to start, and then the three of us proceeded to savor a fabulous dinner. We ordered carpaccio of tuna caught that day, we got grilled swordfish, prawns, and roasted pork in an 'nduja cream sauce. We also got the grilled... More

What a great find, even before we ate the prosecco was the best I'd ever had - cold and fizzy, and the food was delicious especially their gnocchi, all made on the premises. Vincenzo our host made us especially welcome and it was no trouble to make changes to the menu to suit our tastes. We went twice.
