We happened to be looking for a good place to have dinner...without making a reservation...in Tropea...on a windy evening with intermittent showers. Most of the places we tried to go into were full as their venue was halved due to the poor weather conditions for outdoor dining. We saw this little place and peeked inside. It was almost empty. We... More

Up a side street a little difficult to find but worth the effort! The food was very good and in comparison to other local establishments well priced. Would thoroughly recommend with experienced friendly staff.

Disappointed after seeing so many positive reviews. The food was fairly poor as for Tropean standards but in some cases overpriced. It could have been our mistake, but the fish we ordered was coated in breadcrumbs and had no sides at all (at 16 euro it's pretty bad). Lamb chops, ostensibly local, where surprisingly greasy and a bit tough. The... More

Great food and lovely staff. This is a great find in a town filled with touristy places. I can hardly wait to return. We had a seafood carpaccio appetizer and my friends and I were quite pleased with the pasta and other dishes.

We came into the restaurant after reading the menu outside. It was lunch time but not yet busy. We both ordered the mixed seafood antipasto plate. My favorites were the small marinated fish with the crushed red pepper and the octopus salad. My husband's was the shrimp. The baked mussels with bread crumbs were the best I've ever had. On...

On a cold evening in early May most of the restaurants in Tropea looked a bit sepulchral but this was the exception, buzzing with, mostly German and Dutch, tourists so we gave it a try. Excellent veal steak with mushrooms and the pork entrecôte with a tasty Tartuffe to finish and a bottle of Ciro. The main meat courses come... More

We had the grilled shrimp & carbonara. Both were very good. As a matter of fact, there was a culinary tour from the U.S eating there as well. Atmosphere is quaint & cozy with rock walls. The staff was very nice and friendly. We would definitely come back if in the area.

Since we visited in winter, there were only 3-4 restaurants open in the whole town. This was one of them. We went back several times even after trying the others. It was the best. I would call it a "rustic, mom and pop joint." It has a charming ambience and the food was generally good. They definitely made the best... More
