We ordered some takeout and it was simply delicious. I loved the lasagna and the portion size was generous. They even included some fresh bread and olive oil dip...even though we did not ask for it. We would definitely visit again and try to eat in the restaurant. It looked like reservations are HIGHLY recommended. Great staff and service.

We go to Tropea a few times a year. I love their salad special to start--it comes with little bits of fresh mozzarella and mushrooms with a not to sweet vinaigrette. Their pastas are well done. My son (12) loves the carbonarra and lasagne. I usually get a meat dish to minimize my carb exposure, and love their rich Gorgonzola... More

A horrible location in a crummy indstinct strip mall - don't let the location dissuade you from dining at this place. Once you get inside, you'll forget the outside world and will find yourself in a wonderful italian restaurant. Whether for lunch or dinner, I've always had a great meal and a worthwhile experience.

Another favorite of mine in Redmond! Great Italian food! Very generous portion, super delicious, and very reasonable price. The restaurant is not big, but feel cozy. Very typical Italian style. You may need to wait for 20-40 min in rush hour, but definitely worth it. The outdoor waiting seats are kind of nice as well, so long as the weather... More

We decided to try Tropea for the first time on Valentine's day of all days. This popular restaurant has a wait on any Friday or Saturday, much less a holiday. So with an expected hour wait, we put our name in (they do not take reservations) and went for a walk around Redmond. We got in right about at the... More

Small unassuming restaurant in a strip mall...don't let the location deter you. Food is excellent. Frequently busy. No reservations. Nightly specials.

Once you step inside Lorenzo's little storefront, you are suddenly in Italy! This is our "GO TO" Italian restaurant on the Eastside. The specials are wonderful or just good old spaghetti and meatballs. Great service and a good wine list make this place one of our faves!

Incredible food. Worth the wait. Service was personable by all staff. Just because you wait doesn't mean they rush you through. While waiting for our hour, we visited with many locals that said it's worth the wait.

We have been to this restaurant on many occasions. From other reviews which are totally accurate. No reservations, can be a long wait line, small room, dimly lit etc all very accurate. I have two wishes, well maybe three for this place. Improve the seating layout. Clean the place up a bit, I agree with the dust bunnies on the... More

It's a small restaurant, but cozy. The waiters are friendly and nice. The owner was in the restaurant and went table to table checking if everything was in order. Although it was Thursday evening, I had to wait for 15 minutes for a table, but it worth it. The food is amazing! Quality and flavor are awesome. I ordered Vitella... More
