Crab Pasta - Oh la la !

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!

The service was amazing...all the staff especially, Francesco and a beautiful young woman were so switched on...they were so amazing with our young... More

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.

This Taverna is hosted by a young friendly English speaking proprietor. They specialized in the catch of the day seafood which is displayed, on ice, out in the front of the Taverna. We were talked into a fish pasta featuring a red snapper type of fish. It was cut into chunks, sautéed with their secret herbs and fresh tomatoes. It... More

You can tell when a restaurant is this good when, locals are sitting at the cafe tables outside and young women spill in from outside with their toddlers, the house wine pitchers kept getting bigger and excellent conversation ensued! Fresh catch and fish of the day, on ice for you to choose, cooked to order. Every dish was delishious and... More
