Yummy pizza!!

During my holiday in Tropea, I went twice to Vecchio Forno: the first time I had a foccacia which was good. The second time I took a pizza (alla rucola), which was sublime!! Best pizza I ate in Tropea (during my two week stay). Surprizingly crusty, a bit thicker than what I am used to, but so... read more

Polpo app was cold, and not edible. Pizza was horrible. Service was horrible. This place is just the worst.....If you want a cheap meal, hit Burger King, do your self a favor. This place is a waist of calories.....

We liked this place which is a bit out of the way yet still central. No diesel fumes with indoor and outdoor seating. We had pizza and antpasto and enjoyed the food. Servers were adequate but not particularly warm or attentive thus the good not better rating. Well priced.

The baked onion soup is a Calabrese specialty & excellent! Ate here 3 times, Pizza was fabulous. Service excellent. Many locals eat there. Located in a narrow street, choose the outside tables for ambience. Ask for directions on how to get there. Will definitely return.

Find somewhere else. We didn't have pizza which it sounds like they maybe good but the fillet was poor and the starter not great. Wine was ok. Shame really as the location is amazing.

The first time we came to this restaurant it was delicious, however the second time wasnt as good- the pizzas weren't cooked well. It can also get very busy at dinner time, no reservations so get there early. Proper Italian experience.

We visited this restaurant thanks recommendations on an internet touristic guide. The appetizer was weak. Seafod was marinated in oil, purchased in the store. For 7 EUR It was a very big disappointment for us. Pizza is much different. It has thicker dough, which I appreciate. It is tougher, but it tastes good. The staff is a bit unpleasant. Around...

Delicious pizza, made with fresh ingredients, tasty crust. A wonderful meal eaten al fresco, in a narrow alley that becomes a dining room. Couples, families, everyone seems to be enjoying themselves. A very popular place amongst locals and tourists.

I was in Tropea for 2 weeks in October. We ate here twice. The pizza was amazing. The dough was incredible. The service was good considering how busy it was. Lots of locals eat here and other Italian tourists as well. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
