Tried to keep this place a secret!!!

We visited Italy for the first time while on honeymoon. And how wonderful to be lucky enough to stay in such a lovely town but even more so to eat at this most amazing restaurant. Every meal was amazing but what stays in our minds was the anchovy salad followed closely by the pro secco on the beach... read more

We visited lido calypso several times during our visits last and this year. The food was excellent and the location beautiful. This year we celebrated our wedding anniversary at calypso at the beach strip! Carmelo and his colleagues made this unforgettable. They prepared a setup for us and our friends that we will never forget. Thank you Lido Calypso! Until... More

We always use Calypso Lido when we visit Tropea every month. Its one of the few Lidos hat is still open in October and even November if the weather is good!!! They have daily specials which are always very fresh and tasty. Nothing is too much trouble for the wonderful Carmello who serves always with a big smile and Niño... More

My wife and I visited here twice on a trip to Tropea, the food was fresh and very tasty, the portion sizes were great real good value for money. The location is one of the best features, grab a sun lounger and shade on the the beach then pop in for some food and drinks. Staff were very helpful and... More

Best pizza, hands down. The rest of the menu is superb, fresh, very well priced and portions are enormous. Fresh, fresh, fresh!

This is the 9th year we have visited this restaurant. Each time we eat here we enjoy it so much we wonder how they manage to get it so right time after time. This year was my birthday and we were in the restaurant. . The staff had made me a birthday treat and even a one off special dinner.... More

The pasta was good but not life changing. The prawns were a bit mushy for me. The servers were incredibly friendly so I liked that aspect. This restaurant was one of the better ones I visited in Tropea but the town is very touristy and most of the food I found was average, so the high reviews surprise me.

We visited Lido Calypso 4 times in three weeks... The pizza was THAT good. Impossibly thin crust, puffed to perfection and then toasted and crispy with mouth watering tomato sauce and fresh mozzarella. Great prices, fantastic service, friendly waiters, and really, the best pizza I've ever had in Italy or anywhere else in the world. We had pizza at a... More

I came here last year when I was doing an Italian course and one of the reasons I wanted to return with my husband was Lido Calypso. The previous review says it perfectly and I concur; they have got it right here and its now one of my husband's and my special places in the whole of Italy. We too... More

After a few days back from our holiday in Tropea I had thought of how to describe the quality and overally experience of this restaurant. Being my 34th trip to Italy and eating at several of London's michelin starred Italian restaurants regularly I feel in a fair place to judge this restaurant and the only way to describe the cooking...
