8 of us stopped by for a relaxing lunch and was not disappointed the catch of the day was so simply cooked every one was pleased with their choices and the wine flowed! Tartufo was as anticipated with a wonderful hazelnut/cocoa dusting. Would definitely return.

Warm family hospitality, delicious and freshly prepared dishes. We enjoyed tuna, spaghetti carbonara and freshly caught fish roasted in salt. They make you feel like family!

Do not expect a classic fish restaurant. You will be proposed only the freshest fish from owners fish market. Famous Tropea onions and Silana potatoes are at their best quality level. We ate tuna, and that was the best cooking and taste we experienced so...More

Had a great lunch in Pizzo at Pepe Nero. The owners were there, very involved and paying attention to everyone on the terrace. The “general” was clearly the Mother of the young guys and the entertainer was clearly the Father. The boys were friendly amd...More

We were travelling in a company of 8 and so much looking forward to dining at, what TripAdvisor community claims to be - the number 1 restaurant in Pizzo. Our first surprise was that we were offered some fresh catch at a flat price of...More

Hi, first of all: when you came to our restaurant, we've suggested to you our BEST fish of the day; you know, fresh lobster costs 140€/kg and yours weighed 1,900kg, but we use to make a good price to everyone so we did it. Second:...More
