My wife and I have been to Tropea a number of times, and have always been treated well by the wait staff and have had very good food. Tonight we again had a very good meal and until the last moment, good service. But, as we were getting ready to leave the waiter returned to our table to confront us about our tip! Our bill was $109.00, and we left an $11.00 tip. There was no particular reason for the amount of the tip, but perhaps the suggestions on the check that we tip 18%, 20% or 22% put us off a bit. But the bottom line is this: my wife and I are in our early 60s, and neither of us have ever been confronted by a waiter or waitress about the amount of our tip, or have ever heard of anyone else ever being confronted by a waiter about the amount of a tip. I was so stunned that I walked over to the restaurant owner to complain about what our waiter had said to us, but the owner agreed with the waiter, taking the position that we should have tipped at leat 15%! Gad!!! I will never, ever, go back to Tropea. Never, ever.
