Perfectly cooked tuna, also fish was very good. No problems with starters either. Nice pasta and eggplants with parmiggiano. Not so special that I would rate 5. But also nothing really to complain.

The restaurant is supposed to be open from noon til midnight. We we're there at 3 PM. We wanted to have lunch but the waitress had to ask the boss wether they are open or closed! The boss said "CLOSED". The then just went to...the neihgbouring cafe to smoke cigarettes. I am shocked that AGAINST their own information they don't want to do business. It is also unfair because we choose this restaurant specifically because of the opening times. VERY BAD SHOW. Very bad business, too. The man in the blue T-shirt is the boss.More

Avoid this place!! They treat you like a fool tourist which will not return soon. They serve you rotten fish, even if big portion. We were in three there and ordered seafood apitizer, which was disgusting for the taste and different mix of things..; tuna...on grill, and tuna with onion “colipolla” di Tropea, -were bad because it was almost rank fish: it was not just poor low quality, but really bad and rotten! Only the wine witch costed about 18 euro in menu and the water were good! We informed them that it was impossible to eat and just left the plates without eating them at all, but they just give as the bill for almost 100 euro asking to pay all, we ordered; we did, but will never come back there AND HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU TO AVOID THIS PLACE, because being in the very center of touristic place, they treat you like a fool, giving you low quality dish and foodMore

Rarely (if ever) have I been treated so rudely in a restaurant - and I have lived in Italy my whole life (in Rome!). Food perfectly fine, but relentless nastiness and ineptitude of both waitresses would be hard to beat. Also, you’ll be sitting in...your neighbors’ lap. Avoid- you can do better in this town.More

We ordered a starter... and the pasta (first main) came before it with a side dish (that we ordered as a second) all together... in Italy salad is considered as a second main. We also ordered sparkling water, and received still water (naturale)... We made...the waitress aware of the mistake, who laughing saying “it’s the same”... what more should I say... a total disaster...More

Visited here in August, lovely family owned restaurant. Great food, especially enjoyed the Lobster pasta special (pictured). Very reasonably priced and would definitely return.

Fabulous restaurant and not to be missed. We have been in Tropea for a week and this restaurant was so good we had to go back a second time. The spaghetti e vongole, bolognaise and carbonara were all fantastic and even the insalada mista was...superb with the local Tropean onions. Puddings include excellent tiramisu and canoli which shouldn’t be missed. In addition to the above service is excellent with a very friendly owner and front of house courtesy of Marcella is second to none. This team takes great pride in what they do and they do it very well. This is a couple that you want to sit down and have a drink with. This will be our first stop on our return visit!More

Dinner with friends. We tried the cous cous with fish, 1 starter (sea salad) , fish of the day and 1 bottle of wine. The food is average, the cous cous was almost in a soup. Careless service. I would not recommend it.

We had a delicious lunch here. The food was fresh and tasty, wonderful seafood pasta (gigantic prawns!), mussels and clams and the young lady that served us was friendly and helpful. Would definitely return, tomorrow if we could!

The person who I believe to be the owner was spending a lot of time with some of his guests (those that frequented the place often or were of the opposite sex, it seemed) at the expense of others. We were seated in a half...empty restaraunt and did not get immediate service. Once we did and placed our order it took a while for our order to arrive. In addition, the white wine my wife ordered did not come at all. During this time, the owner joked around with several of the lady customers. The food was served hot and was very good (which was the only positive at this restaurant). When we asked for the check, he knew that we were unimpressed with the service. After 10 minutes, I had to signal him again that I was still waiting for the check! He brought the check and charged me for the wine which was never served. This was the first of all the restaurants we ate at in Tropea and it was the worst experience.More

When seeing the specials board on the way to the beach my partner and I were excited at the ‘nduja filled ravioli’ so we booked that night for dinner. When we arrived our order was taken shortly after (probably took around 5 minutes because our...waiter was too busy welcoming other guests and barking orders at his staff). We ordered eggplant parmigiana as a starter to share, nduja filled ravioli and I ordered a swordfish pasta dish. The starter and my pasta dish was pretty average however the ravioli dish claimed to have nduja however it most definitely did not! Extremely disappointed that it was on the specials board and nduja being the hero of the dish was no where to be found...More

We waited for the food about 1h. The pasta was terrible. After we asked what is happening with out food then the waiters were asking themselfs. One guy out there is really a clown, he has a big mouth but he doesn't implicate at all,talking...with everybody but a really clown. Worse restaurant in Tropea!!!!More
