We ate in this restaurant last night and experienced the worst customer service in Italy. The waitress was so passive and indifferent that it was almost funny. We ordered a big bottle of water which was thrown on the table without glasses, maybe she thought we had brought our own! She was very unhappy when we asked her for some... More

We recently enjoyed lunch at La Forgia in Tropea. My husband declared the risotto to be the best he had tasted - creamy and delicious. From memory, it was shrimp and zucchini. I had spaghetti and the local red onions, which although pleasant, was nothing out of the ordinary. The staff were courteous and dealt well with our lack of... More
