This is the restaurant I recommend in Tropea. The food is sophisticated and delicious and the setting is very romantic and quiet. We went there because it was recommended in our guide and we liked it so much that we went back the day after for dinner.

We liked this restaurant so much that we came twice during our stay. The staff were friendly and appreciated our small amount of Italian. We ate pizza and pasta- both delicious. We would highly recommend it.

Great location with great food and service. You need to book a table in advance. We have eaten here plenty of times - always with a smile when we leave!

We had dinner during a warm july evening and this is a proper italian place. We were offered a glass of Prosecco while we waited for the table, and given a table along the smaller alleyway which felt very romantic. I had the special large prawns for my main course and they were beunisimo! Calabrian wine to go with the... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel. It was one of the best "spaghetti alla Vongole I've had in Italy, very tasteful with fresh ingredients. The restaurant is located in a small alley, were you sit on street with people going by. Very Italian and very romantic Prices are fair for the quality and amount of food. Jes Denmark

Beautiful location, unfortunately food and service are seriously lacking! Do not order anything off the menu as the price will leave you speechless (50 euros for a medium sized grilled local fish suitable for one person only)!!!! The food is average at best. Many other restaurants in the area which offer better food and friendlier service. Will not return!

I went for dinner with my partner and we speak very little Italian and managed to work out the mainly Italian menu. We got a cappricosa pizza and the grilled tuna steak and it was really yummy. The area where you sit has a great atmosphere and we would definitely go back. The service was a bit slow but we... More

The location is lovely when you are seated outside. It's a bizzy one so make reservetations. The food is great and that's the reason they get 4, if the service would be better i'd give them 5. You do not feel welcome here how ever you should go there as the food is fab. They do not speak English well... More

We stopped here for a late dinner and we loved it! The food selection is excellent and tastes delicious from the appetizer to the dessert. The portions are fairly big and the prices are slightly higher than the average Tropea restaurant. However, it is definitely worth a stop to taste the delcious Calabrian food!

We visited this restaurant based on a quick glance at some good reviews. The food was okay, but we have had much better across Italy for the same price. The service was average, dutiful but rushed and we were left with the impression we were just one of many tables in a busy restaurant. Leaving customers with a positive impression... More
