Fine dining, wine markup

A return visit to Tropea. The food was great as before, asked the waiter for a wine recommendation and he suggested the wine that the proprietor and staff drank when they ate. For the pricing of wine at Tropea, it was reasonable. Checking prices later at Total Wine, it was marked up about 4.3... read more

Intimate dining with nice wine list. Cream sauces are superb, as is tiramasu. Don't let strip mall location deter you from going.

In town for business and this restaurant was recommended by hotel. It was an excellent suggestion! Three of us went and had lasagne, manicoti, and a risotto that was on special with seafood. All of us thought the food was incredibly good and authentic. It is a small restaurant but they get you in pretty quickly. The service was excellent.... More

Easy to miss in small group of shops, but make the effort to visit. Service was excellent, and food was delicious, surprisingly large selection of main courses. You won't be sorry.

Went twice to Tropea during the last 3 months for dinner and while the food is overall still very decent, the place is not the same when Laurenzo is not there. We found the service less attentive, slower and with less attention to details. Hopefully this is just a temporary situation...

This was rated the #1 restaurant in Trip Advisor so I thought we would try it. Good basic Italian food. It is small and intimate. Good for couples on a dark winter night. We were there in June so it never got dark. Wine list is almost exclusively Italian so I needed help. I know Barolos, Chiantis, and Barbesco just... More

We had dinner there after getting high recommendations from our B&B owner. The food was not out of the ordinary, service was ok. What rubbed us in the wrong way was the waiter who just didn't get our likes in wines and was trying to sell us a bottle for a deal ($50 instead of $60 for a bottle with... More

I've loved Tropea for many years. When I invited my Italian class to join me in 2013, and my teacher (who is from Modena) said that it was the best Italian food she had tasted in a long time, I knew I had made the right choice. We don't often make it the whole 2 miles to Tropea, but when... More

Tropea has been my favorite of all time. Every family celebratory event has been held at Tropea for the past 15 years. The food is pure, fresh, and testimony of fine Italian cuisine. Service is without equal. The seafood specials are exquisite. If you're lucky, you may find fresh homemade meatballs on the menu. Finally, don't miss the tiramisu which... More
