Very nice place with friendly staff. A bit hidden, ensuring a romantic and Italian atmosphere. Sea food - delicious! :-)

This restaurant lived up to the reviews. Came with no reservation but were seated out back in a cute lane way. Staff are excellent, very friendly. Food was equally as good!

Pasta Granchio (crab pasta) was absolutely divine, along with the wonderful service and the nice ambiance. The crab was as fresh as could be, cooked in a spicy - garlicy goodness of a sauce, with al dente pasta in the middle. We are here in Tropea for another 3 weeks, can't wait to go back!

This was more like it. On a long weekend to Tropea we had eaten our first meal at Convivio and really hadn't rated it. On our penultimate evening we came across this place and took a table on the veranda. Great welcome and explanation of the fresh fish and what can be pulled together for you. Our first meal we...

Small restaurant in a quiet alley in the old town. Nice setting. Good service and friendly staff. Mainly fish on the menu. Would recommend it if you like some tasty fish.
