Delicious lunch here. Fresh pasta and friendly service. Perfect location in Pizzo's main piazza. My husband had pasta tipici with all local products which was fabulous. I had spaghetti carbonara which was fabulous.

We ate there a couple of times and we can highly recommend spagetti (carbonara was the best) and fish meals. My wife said that it is the best carbonara she ate in Italy. Pizza is good also. Great service also by a waiter that knows...More

The trattoria pizzeria S.P.Q.R. Is situated in a picturesque square called "the Republic" in the historical center of Pizzo Calabro, tourist town rich in history and traditions. Our cuisine is characterized by typical local ingredients that enhance the taste of our dishes ranging from meat to fish, making them unique, in addition to crank out a pizza light and flaky with a rich flavor and intense.
