One of my pet hates is eating a rissóis de camarão and eventually coming across a single prawn. The rissóis de camarão at Bella Roma were packed with prawns and had a tasty slightly piquant sauce in a crisp case. Just how they should be....But there were other reasons to choose it. The place was busy with locals getting their snacks and lunch, they always know were to go. We only had snacks, but they were great. The service was super and very friendly, and the staff were also helpful in recommending where we could find some Broa de Avintes - The Mercado Bolhão, (which is as I write in temporary location whilst the main place is renovated). Anyway, for your snacks and lunch - give this place a go.More

Called here for brunch on our first day in Porto as we didn’t want to pay €18 each for breakfast in our hotel. What a find! Excellent pastries / sandwiches / drinks, with first class friendly service. We were made very welcome and called every...day during our stay. Obrigado.More

Called here twice during our stay in Porto for Coffee and cakes because it was very close to our Hotel after we had been out for the day. Lovely staff, great choice of cakes and the menu looked interesting and reasonable prices.

Bella Roma was a happy regular destination for me and hubby throughout our stay in Porto (when it wasn’t too full 😊 ). Wonderful Paolo served us frequently. 👌

Wow wow the cod fish was amazing. The bread was so fresh. Also ordered sangria which had the wow factor for us and so did the Ponte De Lima. Dessert was great too had stewed apple, French pudding and portugese tarts.

This place does sandwiches and pastries etc better than they do omelets but they were ok. Not a lot of English spoken but they are really good at working with you. Really good people and they go out of their way to help. This is...big inside and out. Coffee was over extracted and bitter.More

Stopped for coffee and pastries before leaving Porto. Asked for americano, got espresso and jug of hot milk, which was swapped for hot water when requested. Lovely custard tarts. Lovely spot in largely pedestrianised street.

We entered this bakery to use the WiFi. The cashier gave me the password without question. We then bought two sandwiches and pastel de natas. Everything was delicious. Great location near the train station, with more selection!
