it’s by far the worse pizza we’ve had during our trip to Italy… my Marguerite was over cooked and my husband salami pizza wasn’t cooked enough … tasteless cheese and tasteless sauce … if you can’t properly cook a Margherita when your restaurant is only...making pizza then I think it says a lot about the place …More

Waited for 10 minutes before being seated while servers pass in front of you and see you are waiting. Serve main dish while you have not finished apetisers and shout on you that there is no space on table. Apart from horrible welcome and service,...delicious food.More

Terrible service. Waitong for a table which was thougth for us, but given to another customer. The owner was angry at us since one of the waiters reserved the table for us. DO NOT GO TO THIS PLACE.

We went to this restaurant because it was recommended by our hotel. It was just average. My husband ordered a red wine, and he got a white. The server didn't make any effort to correct it. So my husband just sucked it up (literally) and...let it go. The host acted like he was doing us a big favor to seat us. In fairness, there was a language barrier, and that could have been an issue. He looked very unhappy to be there. The food was ok. Just ok. In two weeks in Italy, this was the most average dinner.More

The pizza was delicious. We started off with 1litre of house vino rosso (chilled) it was akin to a bolder Sangiovese. We had melanzane cooked in the oven with stone baked bread. It was fantastic. The eggplant was creamy and tasty just olive oil and...salt. The baked potatoes were a hit with the kids. The pizza was excellent. I had the Veccio Forno. Tuna, capsicum, mozzarella, pomodoro, and nduja it wasn’t too spicy judt a great tasting pizza. We also had a margarita, prosciutto olives and prosciutto artichoke pizza. All great traditional pizzas. The tiramisu was a great finish to the meal.More

Terrible food. Lousy service. This was honestly the worst meal I have ever eaten in Italy. The zucchini was over-boiled to a pulp, the mozzarella in the caprese salad tasted like the plastic packaging it was removed from, the pizza was flavorless, etc. etc. You...couldn’t prepare a worse meal if you tried. How does this place stay in business??!!!! The waiter never even brought olive oil or vinegar to the table for my salad. My husband’s meal was also awful. The octopus and potatoes he had were over-boiled and tasteless. Steer clear unless you are desperate and cannot find anywhere else to go in Tropea.More

This is a real authentic Calabrian pizza. There is a large wood stove. Pizza is baked and harvested full of natural homemade products. The owner of the institution is a kind person, his name is Mario. He personally bakes pizza. The staff is friendly. Especially...funny Ukrainian blonde. I recommend this place to everyone. In the evening, it is better to book a table earlier. The place is very popular. While waiting for the table, you can wait up to 40 minutes.More

A marinara pizza with only tomato base with nothing else as topping, no seafood whatsoever, cold with a very hard crust, this must be by far the worst pizza i have eaten!

I do not understand what the hype is about this restaurant, every table was full 10 minutes before they started service! The pizza was ok, reasonably priced but I have had better. The service was non existent, no wine glasses or extra water glasses were...brought to the table after we ordered our drinks, even though the waiters were standing completely disinterested right near our table, they just didn’t care. Pretty disappointing and over rated in my opinionMore
