We had dinner at this place twice. The atmosphere was very romantic. The staff were very friendly and gentle. The food was .....hmmm....EXCELLENT!!! :-))) I could eat it every day! :-P Only problem was they did not have "pane integrale" (brown bread) We come back again! :-) it's sure ;- )

Stopped here for a glass of wine one evening and the waiter was so charming we thought we'd return for a meal the next night and we weren't disappointed beautifully presented food, good wine and a nice atmosphere

How to start... Great place to be in Tropea. Quiet square ideal for restaurant just next to busy turistic main street. But... Too silence - there should be a backround music which make some atmosfere. The service was too cold. No real interest in guests. Untouched plate and the waiter took it without a question "why"? Most of the waiters... More

We had our best dinner during our week in Tropea at this place. The local antipasto was fantastic. The ravioli with ragu and the swordfish pasta was also great. We shared a bottle of their own red wine and it was really good. Very cozy location.

From the moment we sat down, we felt really comfortable here. The waiters are attentive without being pushy. The anti pasta starter of regional foods was perfect, as was the calamari. And the fish of the day was grilled beautifully. The restaurant is located in an old fashioned square, down a quaint alleyway and occasionally tourists and locals meander through,... More

Loved the atmosphere, wine list, friendly staff. Best risotto I've ever had. Came back for a 2nd time before I left. The chocolate block for desert is a must!

We found this restaurant through trip advisor. It was down a back street and the tables were filled with locals rather than tourists. The service was impeccable and our food was spot on. I was allowed to sample the wine before buying a whole bottle - a beautiful cab sav. We would definitely go back there.

Our second visit to Tropea and just like four years ago we found our way to La Lamia. Situated off the main road in a cozy little square. The staff is friendly, the ambiance and food are excellent. Today we enjoyed an excellent piece of filet steak. The seafood is great here too, but just in case you are looking... More

Ate dinner at La Lamia on the recommendation of Massimo from Max Bar. We asked him where we could have the best risotto dinner and he called to La Lamia to be sure they had risotto for the night. He told to them that he was sending over the 2 "Donne con capelli rossi ". When we arrived we were... More
