A local recommended this place to us for pizza and the recommendation was great! We thought the pizza was the best we had in Tropea. They also serve pizza at lunch which is something many restaurants in Tropea do not offer at lunch. The diner menu looked great too, although we never made it there for dinner.

Everything we had was good (swordfish, pasta with seafood, dessert), but the star of the show was their incredible Tropea onion soup!! I still think of it. Was very busy, but the service was always superb.

I had to write this after reading the previous review, we have just returned from a 14 night holiday to Tropea , where we experienced several of the lovely restaurants. I appreciate its a matter of opinion (like most things) but we can honestly say that this (for us) was the "best of those we tried". Its funny, I see... More

Gets good reviews, but do you know? There are many more restaurants that serve better food here in Tropea. Our pizzas were really just ok, nothing special to write home about. The base is fine but the quality of ingredients just isn't there. Was very near our accommodation but we only went once. Give it a miss.

Il Convivio is located down a narrow side street in the general vicinity of the Doumo of Tropea. With good weather, we sat outside where there is room for a few tables along an intersecting pathway. We had a Misto Mare with finely sliced tender octopus, anchovy, swordfish, and salmon. Also excellent was local tuna prepared with ciopolla onion sauce,... More

It seems unfair to give this restaurant any less than five stars, it was very close but we were visiting out of season on a weekday and the restaurant was a little empty and the atmosphere was a bit flat. The owner is friendly and gives great service, the food is very good especially if you chose local specialties and... More

The restaurant was only 20 metres from our hotel - we made the short walk 3 times in our two weeks in Tropea. It was the best we found - friendly and helpful staff; great food at decent prices. We tried fish, pasta and pizza - all beautifully cooked. The fact that local italians use the restaurant (2 birthday parties... More

On a recent trip to Tropea,we were recommended to go to Il Convivio for lunch & it did not disappoint. The day was very warm & the restaurant had only about 3/4 other tables full,but the food was very good & reasonably priced. The service was prompt & very friendly. Would I recommend it.......absolutely. Would I go again myself........most certainly.

In a sea of mediocre restaurants in Tropea, this one stands head and a shoulders above the rest. We thought Da Cece was great but this is even better. All the others we tried fall far behind. Staff, service, ingredients , preparation, flavor, ... Simpatico. !
