Easy to find right in the center of the old town, we went by it many times before finally stopping in. The decors is simple elegant and many locals stop in to eat. They have a nice wine list, but must own the bar across the way, since all the drinks come form there (waiters running back and forth). We... More

When I asked about a meal with sausage, and none was on the menu this night, they grilled one for me anyway. It was very flavorful and at a reasonable price. My spouse was also very happy with her meal.

We had the good fortune to go to this wonderful trattoria on the recommendation of our landlord where we are staying in Tropea. The owners Francesco and Salvatore were a delight going out of their way to chat with us and recommend places to visit and things to do throughout Calabria and Sicily. The meal of locally caught fresh mixed... More

We had lunch here. The service was very kind. As starter we had a mixed seafood platter it was good. The lobster we had after was really small but it had a good taste. Also the wines we had were nice.

Good lunch with the family. My seafood risotto was great! I tasted everything my family ordered and it was good (the schnitzel was a bit dry. It was ordered by someone who is allergic to seafood, but I won't judge the place based on that). The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Love this place for people watching!

Great seafood meal. True Italian fare. We enjoyed house wine that was enjoyable and very affordable as was our meal. The staff were friendly even with our language difficulties.

We were staying in Pizzo and we went to Tropea for a (short) day, including a late lunch. Tre Fontane's location in a small square made it very attractive. The food was really enjoyable. Good fresh salads, chips tasted home made, good and efficient service. For us, the best meal of the whole holiday (which was lucky, because it was... More

In the middle of a tourist street you mostle use to find a tourist trap... But here you got a lovely italian family restaurang with a couple who live and work in Tropea... Real good food with a domination of sea-food. Don't go by it just because it's on a tourist road!!!!!
