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.

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

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

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

We found this restaurant recommended in a tourist guide book. After our first visit we were so impressed by the quality of the food as well as its very friendly and efficient service that we decided to have dinner at this place every night during our two-week stay in Tropea. During these two weeks the excellent quality of the food... More

Tre Fontane presented nicely in the square ... with food average or slightly below and fair service ... they had run out of everything we requested by 8:15 PM. Looking for better food and service - try Al Pinturicchio just down the street.
