Big thumb up for the staff and the dishes being served as fast as possible even though it was raining all the time and many people just stood there without ordering anything. One... More

This is without doubt the best place to eat at the beach of Tropea. We had lunch there three times, tried different things and everything was delicious. The service was perfect.

The restaurant has some really nice food and accessible prices. The view is nice, but not the best as the restaurant is not on the beach like the others.

Had lunch here yesterday. My girlfriend and I got linguine frutti de mare and spaghetti vongole and an antipasto to share. All was spot on and couldn't have asked for anything better.

All was going well, we were asked if we wanted water and we said no, and the female waitress asked if she could take our water glasses cause she was running low.
