My wife and I stayed inTropea for a few days and followed Tripadvisor for restaurant advice. We had lunch at the Lido Tropical, and found the restaurant average at best. The waitress was very friendly, but the food was expensive and below standard. Did we miss something?

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at this genuine Italian eatery. Amazing staff. The menu offers a wide variety of choices and the service is relaxed and friendly. The atmosphere is family friendly too and the service is very accommodating. I recommend this to anyone searching for quality.

Having had a few good meals in Tropea already, I was ready to move up a culinary-gear, and I just had to see for myself how "Amazing" this place is.
