I had 2 delicious meals here during my few days in Tropea. The best was a seafood pasta with saffron! Highly recommended! In addition, the locale is absolutely adorable and the service was great. I enjoyed chatting with Romania, the daughter of the owner. Great restaurant!

Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, beautiful interior, central location. The restaurant is run by a family who made us feel home and showed us the best of Italian cuisine. We went to this restaurant every day during our stay and it never failed. We tried various dishes including spaghetti with crab, antipasti, fish spada, various pasta dishes, octopus salad, and every... More

We dined at this restaurant in early october 2016. The food was great and so was the service. They treated us and our children really good. Would absolutely recommend this place and will go again if I go back to Tropea.

We happened upon La Penola d'Oro while walking trough the streets of Tropea recently and decided to have dinner there. The restaurant is located just off the main street and its location offers a quiet spot for a meal. The menu offers a good choice of seafood and meat dishes and of course pasta. Our party of four order a... More

This restaurant has a lovely atmosphere, in a quiet location off the main street. Good friendly service. The food was OK, but we wouldn't go back, there are better places to eat. We ordered the side dishes of caponata (very good), the side dish of onions (the onions were lightly grilled and were OK). For mains we had the seafood... More

We happened to be looking for a good place to have dinner...without making a reservation...in Tropea...on a windy evening with intermittent showers. Most of the places we tried to go into were full as their venue was halved due to the poor weather conditions for outdoor dining. We saw this little place and peeked inside. It was almost empty. We... More

Up a side street a little difficult to find but worth the effort! The food was very good and in comparison to other local establishments well priced. Would thoroughly recommend with experienced friendly staff.
