We stumbled upon here whilst working our way around in the evening. The understood gluten free so I was able to eat well and the boys had great pizza. Lovely atmosphere and very busy, need I say more

Just average. Pasta was well-cooked if the starter a little disappointing. But I chose a beer I was offered rather than one from the menu and when the bill came it was a whopping 9 euros a bottle!! Won't be making that mistake again...

I wrote a previous review of this restaurant but the rating for some reason came out only as one star when I intended it to be five stars. I have been in this restaurant many times and it has been excellent every time and in my view deserving of five stars.

I have eaten at this restaurant many times and it is one of the best in Tropea. Enzo's pizza is the best in all of Tropea and Roberto his brother is one of the best chef's in the city. Roberto uses his imagination in the preparation of all of his pasta dishes. I have eaten in many restaurants in Tropea... More

The outdoor seating area with a view of the Duomo may seem tempting, but stay away. By far the worst meal of the holiday. Staff took ages to come to the table every time you needed something- the food (we ordered very simple dishes and the restaurant was nowhere near full) took an HOUR and ten minutes to arrive. They...

Only thing nice was the staff. Ordered lamb chops and veal steak for main and mash potatoes and grilled veggies as sides. Lamb was very dry and tasteless and veal was tough. Mashed potatoes were cold and grainy and grilled veggies were cold as well. Worst experience in Tropea.

Two days ago I've eat a special pizza at Don Rocco, it was the most amazing pizza that I ever eat in Calabria. First pizza it was Special Porcini and yesterday a pizza with Nutella. I really like the personal, the feeling of friendship that the waiters are giving to me and all of the restoration.

This restaurant run by three charming brothers is undoubtedly the best restaurant in Tropea and one of the best in southern Italy. Enzo the pizza maker has the best pizza in town and his brother Roberto is the most imaginative in the city. From seafood to pasta to sweet pizza and for the most fun this is the place to... More

Visited Tropea in May - pre-season for this lovely area. The restaurant's location alongside the cathedral was the best part of the experience! What a pity the management felt that this location was all that was needed to guarantee success and satisfied customers.Can't believe they actually employed a chef in the kitchen in view of the awful meal we were...
