Which such a terrible service, it is hard to understand why the restaurant is full. My plate of mixed grilled fish was uneatable, too dry, and revolting plating. The grilled vegetables were OK, but the veggies in the salad had a long stay in the kitchen before served to us. Expensive, low value for your money.

It was a cold windy february Evening, nearly all business in town were closed, bad prospects for a hungry and tyred family when Gaetano - the owner - invited us in. We had a great time with the excelent local wine and a procession of dishes from the local tradition, including an exciting Antipasti sampler followed by pasta and fish... More

Loved the place. Very small and only a few tables. Very casual feeling and we got a table next to the propane heater so that started us off happy. It can get cold in January! The food was incredibly as it was in almost every place we visited in Calabria. The desert was great too (chocolate gelato typical desert in... More

Walking through the old town in Tropea, my husband and I discovered this delightful family-run osteria. Friendly staff and delicious food in a cozy environment. We will definitely return!

The sign for free wi-fi caught my attention, seemed to be decent so I decided to try it. Indifferent the quality of food. If you visit Italy and Calabria you have more expectations.

The menu is simple and the food cooked very well, the speciality is fish and spaghetti alle vongole was very good. The house wine was anyway served as a bottle and you pay for what you consume and the quality was excellent. The little street it is in very quaint and the little table outside romantic.

Great osteria. Simple, fresh menu. Delicious fish and the best spaghetti alle vongole I've had. Ever. Cozy atmosphere and attentive service. I made it my default place for lunch having gone at least 6 times.

When you come to Italy you come for the food, the wine and the people. At le Volpi E L' Uva you get it all. Off the main drag in Italy's best kept secret Tropea, the eatery is a gem.
