Best fish and pasta Restaurant in the World!

I can just agree with what most people say or even more: for me this is the nicest and best restaurant I've ever been. The fish is fresh and so amazingly prepared, yuummmyy. And the pasta made by the cook Floriana is for me the best in the world, my absolute favourite is spaghetti mare azzurro with... read more

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 at sunset.amazing... 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

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.
