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...

Ignore negative reviews, especially the one regarding a stupid american asking for a peperoni pizza and getting peppers! peperoni is peppers in italian... anyway... if you visit tropea (and you should) then you simply cannot afford to miss Calypso. It's on the beach, the staff are really helpful and friendly, the food is fresh and very very authentic, plus the... More

Not sure if it was just an off day, but I found the staff to be rude, and the food very average. The vongole pasta was nothing great...not one vongole attached to the shell...an indicator of how fresh and immediate the pasta was made. Salads were very basic & dull. Sorry, but we loved this place last year, very dissapointing.

What an amazing experience, I would urge anyone visiting Tropea to come and eat at Calypso. The Food is AMAZING, Service is IMPECCABLE and the beach setting is STUNNING. An absolute MUST for a sublime dining experience.

First, to the reviewer previously complaining that his peperoni pizza didn't have peperoni on it, but only peppers, I suggest he might try and learn a few words of Italian before his next visit, or at least buy himself a dictionary, because peperoni IS ITALIAN FOR PEPPERS! I went to Calypso last night - we ate very well - the... More
