Great antipasti.

The antipasti Calabrese was terrific as was the gnocchi with shrimp. The Bucatini with tuna carbonara was not very good. Portions sizes were average. The service left a lot to be desired though the waitstaff seemed cordial. Be sure to take in the nearby view of the Sanctuario of santa Maria... read more

We ate here in December, certainly not a busy time for tourists. There was one other couple dining. There was no normal waitstaff and what seemed to be the owners teenage daughter manned the front. She was not unpleasant but was far more concerned with her pink iPhone than serving dinner. The pasta with clams and mussels was very good... More

A delightful restaurant in Tropea. The service was excellent and the grilled fish plate was the best I have ever eaten! Ate outside, but the interior is quaint with the rock walls. Will look forward to going again and again to have the good food.

OK food. Boring Menu, the service was weary. The food was all the same, nothing new under the sun. Nevertheless, great location.

The service left a lot to be desired though the waitstaff seemed cordial. Be sure to take in the nearby view of the Sanctuario of santa Maria d'Isolde at night. Very picturesque.

We happened upon this restaurant while walking around and enjoyed the atmosphere of sitting in the little alley way for dinner. My spaghetti and clams were great except for the little bit of sand in the clams. I would still eat there again if the opportunity came up.

We had dinner there and we ate a fantastic fresh home made pasta (la fileja) with original Tropea's onion, sausage and parmigiano.

We was charmed by atmespjere with outside seating in narrow street. Stuff had no problem with english and adviced menu of the day. It was fantastic fresh swordfish with cipolla and pomodoro. I ve ordered spaghetti with mix of seafood and it was delicious. Dont miss this pearl.
