We found this restaurant as we walked up the many stairs from the beach. We needed a cool drink. They impressed us so much with their hospitality (brought us a lovely pasta snack and also some eggplant balls, free of charge just “because”) that we...More

The ambiance is better than the food. Risotto was the best dish I had here. the group that we dined with found the restaurant to be mediocre as well.

Excellent staff and faultless food in this al fresco establishment a few minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Tropea centre. Very reasonable prices and a good wine list which includes good house wines. A lovely setting for a meal.

We were recommended to go to Da Cece and from the minute we entered we were treated like family. The waiter who was so friendly provided us with great recommendations and we were not disappointed. We actually felt like some chicken soup to start with...More
