“Birds eye view and birds eye pizza”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

That pizza would be laughed out of Napoli.

Funny thing was that the spaghetti alle vongole was great.

The view is superb though, so get a starter have a beer and then move on to another place for real food.

“tourist trap”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

This is a typical tourist trap-restaurant-with-a-view. Everyone dreams to have a romantic dinner while the sun sets. I personally don't, because of the fact that food doesn't need any sight seeing.
In this case we got terrible, even frightening food combined with a sour wine. This restaurant should be number 54 on 54 restaurants. Do not go there!

“Average food - spectacular view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012 via mobile

Had lunch there today sat on the terrace looking down over the beach. Beautiful setting.
Ordered the parmigianno and the penne all arrabbiata with a mixed salad to go with.
My wifes parmigianno came out ten minutes before my pasta but both were very nice although the portions arent very big.
I had to send the salad back as yhe lettuce had quite a few small insects it which they tried to tell me were from it being outside on the table. The lettuce leaves hadnt been washed properly, i have seen said insects in lettuce at home.
Price wise was good value.

“Much better than expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2011

This was our second trip to Tropea and we decided to have lunch at Al Cannone. We were a little skeptical because it is so close to the prime touristy area, but were desperate for some shade and pulled in by the view. The view could not be more amazing-- overlooking the Convento della Pieta and the sea. We had the Insalata Tropeana, a nice mix of fresh tomato, cipolla onion, peppers, and olives, for 6 euro. The cipolla onion pizza was large and delicious, also for 6 euro. A one liter bottle of water was 2 euro. Overall, reasonable prices for a touristy spot and the food was fresh and excellent. We will be back.
