Porta Vaticana

Located in the heart of Tropea, Porta Vaticana is a famous restaurant known for its fish offerings and delicious pizza. Among the recommended dishes are the risotto Afrodite, with prawns and aromatic herbs and the "fileja alla tropeana" — a tantalising homemade pasta with tomatoes and nduja.


Calabrese dishes are tasty and simple. Specialities include marinated and sun-dried vegetables, swordfish, bluefin tuna and calamari, roasted meats and spicy sausages. Don’t miss the nduja, a soft, spicy hot and spreadable salami. Furthermore, Calabria is one of Europe’s major producers of citrus fruits and hazelnuts which help to make unique desserts.
