We were looking for informal restaurant while visiting Porto walkable from the Intercontinental hotel. This restaurant was recommended and fully met our needs. The Caprese salad was well prepared and generous portion. The octopus was delicious and very tender. The ravioli was home made and very tasty. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Nice place to eat good Italian food - but at heart it is Portuguese. This is not a criticism though. Food was well cooked and the wine well chosen. The room upstairs is preferred - more room and great space overall. Service was very good if at times a little over attentive.

Without a reservation, they were able to accommodate us in the first floor area. Plenty of room at a large round table. Great, attentive service and exceptional food. It doesn't look anything special from the outside and location is without a special view etc ... but it was a great experience/meal.

On Sunday, especially when it is Eastern Sunday, it is very difficult to find a restaurant that is open in Porto. Fortunately, there is La Ricotta, an excellent restaurant which serves very good Italian food (ricotto, pasta) together with very fine Portuguese wines. The service is friendy, with a bravery untypical for Portugal. Highly recommended.

La Ricotta is a small restaurant that features Italian/Portuguese fusion dishes. The pasta dishes we had were particularly good. I let the staff chose the wine and it was very good and went well with the seafood pasta. Service was good and prices were reasonable. We were there on Friday night and it quickly got crowded. I would recommend reservations.

Gorgeous food, excellent service but a bit price tag. If you're after somewhere special, then this is a wonderful place to dine out, but do book. The restaurant is full from early evening. Four of us visited: with aperitifs (white port), one bottle of wine, three bottles of water (small), four main meals, three desserts, one coffee and two further... More

By far the best in Porto! Bruno and his staff went above and beyond! The 15 year Port was amazing, the Veal was over the top with the taglettelli pasta and my wife's gnocchi was incredible! Thanks to Bruno for also the best service in town!

Great little place - stopped for a quick glass and ended up having snack as well - best Pata Negra I have ever tasted and young Bruno should be running the show - brilliant young man. Busy, interesting and definitely above average for a quick stop or a long lunch. Would most certainly go again.
