Excellent service, good food & great value

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... read 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

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.

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.

Food quality was good and the seafood was terrific. Staff had a bit of an attitude, but overall it was a pleasant experience.

It's a super cute little restaurant. The small strip of patio in the front is much nicer than the three tables they have on the back patio. Inside is also very quaint. The food is excellent - very authentic Calabrese - and reasonably priced. We found that we didn't like the food in Tropea much at all as most of... More

I had lunch with my husband. Location is good and interior as well. We tried appetizer calabrese , that was big and good, especially tropea's onion bruschetta. After I tried shrimps served again with onion and that was tasty. My husband took a fileja alla tropeana that was typical local pasta that we recommend to try there. Service was usually... More

We loved it so much, we came for lunch & dinner! Superb pasta w/ clams and tuna tartare flavored with honey and toasted almonds. The tall waiter (Francesco?) was helpful, welcoming, and made great wine recommendations. Excellent experience all around.

My wife and I dined at La Pentola d'oro on 4 July 2014. The restaurant is located off the beaten path on a quaint lightly traveled side street that seemed to be a short cut for local residents. It featured several outdoor tables, which is where we dined, but featured an indoor area which looked very intimate and was very... More
