What else can we add? There are already, at this writing, 528 reviews of the Casareccia da Franco. The couple from whom we rented an apartment in Tropea recommended this restaurant. For a place out in the sticks it seems to be enormously popular - it was flooded with people when we came, but there are a lot of tables... More

I would not reccomend this place for a romantic dinner but definetly for an anthropological experience. This restaurant represents Calabria in its core and the surrounding area paints the poverty of this region. The food is good, locally sourced and hand made. It's not a place for snobbish people but for real travellers.

Very nice place with delicious typical calabrian food. As a starter you have a choice of local (as salami, cheeses, beans) or traditional Italian dishes (ham and melon, mozzarella ect.). Wide choice of local homemade pasta and good choice of meat. We had a local antipasto Franco, pasta and steaks. I chose an Irish Angus and it was delicious and... More

A real taste of Calabria we ate here twice in a 5 night visit to the area and loved it on both occasions. Pasta dishes are delicious (and huge) and the fish was superb. Can also recommend the chips! Brilliant value for money. Can't wait to return.

If you are looking for typical Calabria’s food you end up in the right place. The restaurant is simple but the homemade food quality is super as well as the hospitality of the owner.

a true manifestation of authentic Italian food at its best. The Antipasto alone would have been more than one could have hoped for, but as the authentic Italian tradition calls for il primo piatto and secondo con contorni (1st, second and side dishes) homemade pasta "Filet" with homemade sauce. Service with a smile and efficient manner. all delicious till the... More

Authentic and delicious. Excellent value too. Great antipasti, local wine, meat and fish. Slightly off the beaten track, but definitely worth the detour.

The menu has not changed in the ten years that we have been going there for one simple reason the food is great . A simple menu of antipasti or pasta followed by grilled meats done to perfection.

Had dinner here with my elderly grandparents and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meal, and the caring service. They went out of their way to accommodate us even when they had a full house, nothing was a problem and service with a smile. We loved our meat pork platters very much.
