“We are really excited to be open for lunch bookings on Saturdays at Tropea after so many guests enquired about it. We will be serving our usual seasonal menu on Saturdays from the 3rd of December.

Ben Robinson-Young, co-owner of Tropea
Tropea is the creation of Ben Robinson Young and Kasia Piatkowska, who met whilst studying Culinary Arts at the University College Birmingham in 2010. Inspired by a picturesque town on the Calabrian coast, Tropea (pronounced Tro-Pey-Ah) sits in the leafy Birmingham suburb of Harborne.
Tropea’s menu is heavily influenced by food sold on the streets of Italy. Made up of small plates, designed to share, it includes snacks, fresh pastas, seafood and regional specialities reflecting fresh produce, from day-boat fish to venison.
Tropea is open Tuesday – Friday from 5pm–11.30pm and on Saturdays from 12pm–3pm and 5pm – 11.30pm.
