Romantic little restaurant

Wow! Fantastic dinner and great local wine. Service was excellent and the food was superb. We had the grilled prawns and veal along with calabrese gnocchi, and focaccia bread. Highly recommended.

We had mostly been self-catering in Tropea but decided to eat out last night because we had got back late from a boat trip. Frankly, TA reviews aren't much help because in Tropea the top 3 "restaurants" are, in fact, just food shops! Most of the other "restaurants" reviewed are gellateria and there are also a good smattering of cafes.... More

Very good restaurant close to the Duomo. We visited both at lunch and at dinner, and we were welcomed by great food and excellent service in both occasions. Don't forget to try out the "bruschetta" with the onion jam. Remember to book a table in advance during high season, or you will end up waiting for quite a bit.

A few tables in a narrow street. The home made pizza bread was delicious. Alicia ripened EU 10, deep fried was disappointing as was the fresh Spinoza eu16. Tropea salad was fine but not a great meal and I would not come again.

We found this restaurant during the day while wandering the back streets of Tropea and were intrigued by the character of the building and location. We decided to come back for dinner, and decided to sit outside in the alley by the restaurant (which was nice). Both the food and the service were a bit of a disappointment -- very... More

Delicious- romantic spot down a candlelit alley in the old town. welcomed with a glass of prosecco and then enjoyed delicious food. The staff were warm and welcoming and when we told them we'd just got engaged they popped a bottle to celebrate!

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.
