Good food and good spot for people watching

Good lunch with the family. My seafood risotto was great! I tasted everything my family ordered and it was good (the schnitzel was a bit dry. It was ordered by someone who is allergic to seafood, but I won't judge the place based on that). The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Love this... read more

We had lunch here. The service was very kind. As starter we had a mixed seafood platter it was good. The lobster we had after was really small but it had a good taste. Also the wines we had were nice.

Everything we had was fantastic! We had lunch and ordered several plates to share, each one was better than the other. Highly recommended!

Great seafood meal. True Italian fare. We enjoyed house wine that was enjoyable and very affordable as was our meal. The staff were friendly even with our language difficulties.

We were staying in Pizzo and we went to Tropea for a (short) day, including a late lunch. Tre Fontane's location in a small square made it very attractive. The food was really enjoyable. Good fresh salads, chips tasted home made, good and efficient service. For us, the best meal of the whole holiday (which was lucky, because it was... More

In the middle of a tourist street you mostle use to find a tourist trap... But here you got a lovely italian family restaurang with a couple who live and work in Tropea... Real good food with a domination of sea-food. Don't go by it just because it's on a tourist road!!!!!

We chose Tre Fontane for our first meal out during a week in Tropea because we were overwhelmed by the choice of restaurants in the town and Tre Fontane was mentioned in the guidebook- it was a good choice! It's obviously one of the more touristy restaurants but the food is still good quality despite this. We were a party... More

We stopped in here for lunch. The proprietor was very friendly and accommodating. We had seafood platters and pasta, as well as a carafe of local wine- which was quite good. Everything was delicious and reasonably priced. Highly recommend this restaurant.

It is a very nice restaurant with quite big choice of dishes. It were very tasty, the only minus that dishes were not very big (as in many other restaurant), so salad and first or second course were not enough to be full. That's the reason to bill to increase until you eat plenty. Try home pasta with seafood -... More
