Visited this restaurant a couple of nights ago. Had the cheese and meat plate with n'duja to start. The n'duja is a local speciality and is pork meat in a rough cut spread, with added crushed and dried pepperinchino chillies. It's hot! My family had superb seafood risotto. Second courses were equally as good. Definitely worth a visit if you... More

It's apparently run by the owner. There are some nice wines. The food is cooked in the open kitchen. You can sit indoors or out. There are only a few tables in either place. The locals flock here. The food was very good. I especially liked the fried sardines and swordfish - I think both were on special. The pasta... More

This is a very cosy place with all the tables set outside on the tiny street, this is a type of places i like when in Italy, whilst waiting on your food you can look around at windows and balconies, enjoy a good wine. I had spaghetti vongole and they were good. Service was friendly and speaks english. Reasonable prices.

Yet another small restaurants that Tropea boasts.-Great food great service-very friendly. Booking essential and most tables are outside. We've been coming here for some years and have always enjoyed delicious food with a very pleasant atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Very friendly and welcoming personnel. Speaks English. Many types of dishes to choose among. The food was totally fine but I believe it were the waiters who made it all so much better. I do recommend this place however, it's definitely worth a visit!

Tonight we were given a complimentary tasting of fried seafood and bruschetta. Lovely! Entree was seafood risotto - absolutely lovely too! Shared between two. Plenty for two. Grilled whole fish for one, grilled filleted fish for one, a shared serving of grilled vegetables and chips. Delicious. Total price €47 This restaurant was recommended and did not disappoint.

What a great suprise of fantastic wine and a beautiful steak. I was open to the suggestion by the owner, even with broken English and my even more broken Italian, managed to have a great great meal.

Le Volpi is little bit out of the main streets,but when we walked around. We had to make lunch break. We try cheese and salami plate with amazing home made figs and onion marmelade. Small problem was pretty old bread... For main we choose risotto and spagetti with clamp both easly maked With focus on main ingrediens. Seafood fresh tasted.
