Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Vegan options available including a dessert. Friendly staff who are knowledgeable about dietary requirements and the menu. I had the gnocchi made vegan which was a massive portion and very tasty followed by vegan strawberry ice cream. My husband had the special which was Portuguese...steak and a brownie for dessert which he enjoyed. Definitely nice to have more than one vegan option.More

Really nice restaurant, with excellent service (low season). Food was generally good, but both our pizzas were very dry and hard work. If they could just have been a bit more moist and moreish, I would probably try this venue again.

This restaurant was absolutely amazing, we have two coeliacs (gluten free) in our family and there was lots of choices for us. This was the best food we've tasted in the Algarve.

We visited this restaurant three times in a week stay as it was so good. It is not the cheapest restaurant in Alvor but the service and food is brilliant. The cacio o pepe stuffed pasta was incredible along with the calzone.

We had Pollo Fungi and Bolognaise with salad and fries. A glass of prosecco and a couple of Sprites. The food was hot, tasty, and left one wanting more. The service was friendly, and attentive. We shall be back again no doubt. Thank you for...a lovely evening in Alvor.More

Some incredible Italian dishes and also excellent fish dishes. They get very busy, but they still manage a pretty speedy service. Always lively and probably the most generous glass of house wine (very tasty too) to be found in Alvor.

We went on a Sunday night when some other restaurants were closed. We were advised there was a 30 minute wait as they were very busy. We chose to have a drink at the bar and our table was ready in 5-10 minutes. All our...food choices were lovely. My portion of seafood pasta was delicious and a very substantial size. Service was great until we asked for the bill which took a few attempts to obtain it.More

Only place in Alvor we’d managed to find (and I do a hefty bit of research!) with vegan cheese. The pizza is absolutely delicious, the bruschetta is the BEST I’ve ever tasted, it’s on another level!! the staff are all very welcoming and charismatic. Testament...to our satisfaction, We came back twice… and that’s not like me, I make a point of trying new places. Highly recommended.More

They will hold you hostage if you are a family, like a show trophy. Having decided to take a chance on the dessert menu rather than the trusted crepe sellers on the main road, we were held there unnecessarily for at least seventy minutes, wasting...valuable “last night” holiday time. Decided to get up and leave, resulting in sudden and extreme interest in taking payment. Food mediocre.More

I would recommend booking as this place gets very busy, we had the minestrone soup and buffalo cheese with tomatoes and basil for starters followed by the chicken breast in mushroom sauce and chicken kebab. The food and atmosphere was great even though we had...to wait 45mins for our starter it didn't dampen the evening any, always worth a try.More

We sat upstairs which was a lovely setting (and quieter than downstairs). Food was good (not the best we had in Alvor but definitely above average) and service very friendly and efficient. A very good experience overall.
