The food was great (lasagna and seafood pasta), the location was quite nice and the staff was friendly. Meals were not so big, you have to order first and second dish if you want to be full.

Just off the Main Street in Tropea, going downhill, beside a fountain featuring 3 Dolphins spouting water, is Tre Fontane. It's a lovely restaurant with a raised decking area ( well made so that the tables don't wobble ) sorry undead by flowering window boxes full of plants. It's all shaded by a large white canopy-awning which keeps out the... More

Great restaurant in the middle of Tropea off the main road obviously with a fountain. Staff were very good and attentive explaining the dishes we had chosen. Food was awesome have the anti pasta of the house my wife fell in love with it. Good selection of bottle wine and very good value for money.

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!

Thank RSanz
