Great service and the food is exceptionally fresh. Our waiter fished the lobster straight out of the aquarium and put it on our table before serving it to us. Ciao xx

It started raining (warm summer rain!) and we rushed to find a restaurant. This place is off the tourists path, but so worth a try! The seafood pasta was simply amazing, lovely flavours, well done Chef :) Hidden gem of Tropea!

I went to the restaurant with my sister and my elderly Mother. The staff were friendly and helpful. The pasta was piping hot and delicious and the fried rolled fish was fabulous!
