Having been to this restaurant many times and booking a table in advance, we were shown to a table that we know is sometimes in a draughty area so we asked if we could have another table. We were abruptly told by the waitress that...More

We were really looking forward to a quality Italian meal but after waiting 90 minutes for our main course (the starters were OK if a little extravagantly priced for what they were) we pointed out the length of time we had been waiting only to...More

we only gave the restaurant 2 stars since we felt robbed when we got the bill. Ask how much the specials are and ask to see a drinks menu. We ordered the anti pasta for two; good but not worth 24€. It included two stuffed...More

Wow!!! We stayed for 10 days in Lagos and this is by far the best dinner we had. House made ravioli with lobster and prosecco sauce! Do I need to say more?

We’ve eaten in lots of the restaurants in Lagos. This could be my new favourite! I know it’s not Portuguese but if you love Italian food you could not be disappointed. All pasta freshly made and the ‘Nannas’ lasagne 12€ is exceptional. I didn’t know...More

We normally chose between Borsalino or the Italian in the square but decided to try this one after all the reviews on TA. Hard to find but very smart inside and good tables with linen clothes and napkins. The menu is comprehensive and is expensive...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.
