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

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.

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
