Welcome to our family kitchen – a place where locals feel loved and newcomers feel like old friends. We’re the Tropea family – born in Calabria, Southern Italy but calling London home since the ‘60s. Our love affair with food has been passed down generations – from mamma who grew up on an Italian farm, and papà who was raised in the caffè industry. To us, eating is a way of life, not a fad. So whether you need two minutes for a ‘tirami-su’ espresso or have two hours for a home-cooked meal with family and friends, we welcome you to enjoy la vita bella at Caffè Tropea, in Russell Square gardens – central London’s oasis. Salute!
