we had a late dinner here, the ambient is relaxed in the basement, dominated by the big bread oven for pizza. we had traditional nduja pasta and gnocchi con gamberi in crosta di formaggio for first dish, wonderful, very tasteful, the tomatoes extre sweet. for fish I opted for tuna with sesam seeds and was very good, the millefoglie cake...

I am a vegetarian and had the mixed antipasti platter - It was really good. The ricotta was amazing and so was the mozzarella. The kids had pizza and they were great too. My husband had fish and he liked it. It is a fairly popular restaurant though in a quiet location.

We ate at Al Pinturicchio twice. The excellent food brought us back for a repeat. The inside tables are set in an atmospheric vault; outside in the alleyway is magic with sparkling candles, hanging lanterns and giant umbrellas. If weather permits, sit outside. The menu offers a wide choice of imaginative fare. The antipasto was beyond spectacular. A reservation is... More

Were often in this area of Italy and always pop in to see this friendly team. No matter if your a first timer or returning customer your always treated like royalty, these guys know customer service. Some wonderful dishes out in the alleyway (summer months) or down in the restaurant (during the off season) to enjoy and wonder at these... More

This is for sure our favourite restaurant in Tropea. It's all located outside with tables in small side streets. You could not get a more romantic restaurant to eat. It's just what you expect when you visit Italy. The service is ok but hey it's southern Italy. The prices are very fair and the food whether pasta, pizza or fish... More

Wait staff here mostly speaks no English, and the menu is in Italian only, so brush up on your Italian seafood vocabulary, bring Google Translate (with Italian already downloaded, because there's no reception down in the restaurant) and get ready to be "WOW"ed by your meal! A little attempt at Italian is met with great appreciation, so give it a... More

We came to this restaurant due to a recommendation of our hostel. The food (pizza and pasta) was good and not too expensive, but the service was one of the worst i have ever experienced. No “hello“ or anything, they barely talked to you and we were told unfriendly to not sit at a table for 3 if we are... More

First time we tried to eat there, the restaurant was very crowded, could not manage to get a table. On our second evening, we arrived earlier and it was not as crowded as the previous day. We ordered a bottle of wine and 2 pizzas. The wine was served after 10 minutes, but the pizzas arrived 2 hours later. We... More
