Italian restaurant as you expect an Italian restaurant to be. Good service, even better meals and very delicious wine.

Lovely family run restaurant. Great service and wonderful food. We had salads to start, then Penne Arrabiata and Taggliatelle with ham and mushrooms. Generous portions and great flavour all around. Highly recommended!

Our party of three had dinner here. The menu is great but the owner told us that many of the dishes were not available. In my mind, they should print a shorter menu if the choice of dishes is very limited because it isn’t high...More

As a party of 8 we ate here last week. All dishes served were extremely fresh and tasty. My only gripe with the restaurant is they don't display the prices of the specials leading our kids to choose pasta dishes that cost €25 each -...More

This place is such a gem. It's tucked away in an alley in the medieval old town of Lagos—not exactly where I expected to find top-notch Italian fare. Everything from the food to the wine to the service was impeccable. Ask for table 25 on...More

Small family-run Italian restaurant just off the main square Praca Gil Eanes in Lagos. Delicious Italian food, with a wide range of specials every day. Interesting sounding meat and fish dishes, and not expensive. We had the home-made pasta dishes, which were delicious and good value. Friendly staff, who also apparently speak German. Highly recommended as a cut above the usual pizza places, and a change from the many Portuguese restaurants in Lagos. Opens 12-15 at lunch and 18.30 to 24.00 for dinner.
