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.

I don't know if it's the best one as I haven't visited them all but definitely is one of the best and does it worth a visit because pizza is very good (fresh ingredients), chianti is nice, staff is friendly and professional. We went there...twice in last few days and the second visit has proven the good feelings of the first. Finally, great value for money!More

We arrived and the place was empty this should have been a warning. However we proceeded based on previous reviews. Drinks and starters were ok. We ordered salmon tagliatelle, 2 x salmon and prawns in the pan. The main course arrived 1 salmon tagliatelle l,...1 x salmon and the prawns. We were told the 2nd salmon would be 2 minutes. A bit strange when we had ordered 4 meals. The salmon eventually arrived without potatoes which was noticed straight away. When we cut the salmon it was was raw inside so we sent it back. A further 20 minutes later we were told it was almost ready, we didn't want it by now as everyone had eaten. 3 mistakes here..the food didn't arrive with the rest of the meals.... no potatoes on the meal...the salmon was raw inside...sorry 4 mistakes...it took a further 25 minutes for the food to be "supposedly" ready.More

It took some finding and the view of apartments might not suit all. The waitress was lovely and the food pretty good. As a beer man I was surprised they only had small bottles and they couldn't accept the travel card for payment. There is...an ATM very close so not s problem, but we were surprised the card couldn't be used. Nice, but not blown away.More

I am sorry for the inconvenience of the credit card and the lack of draft beer. The restaurant has changed site and has recently reopened so there have been delays with the bank and suppliers. However, being aware of being in 2019, everything is now...More

It is worth stepping literally just a few metres off the Main Street to find this lovely pizza restaurant. Don’t go down the steps to the side road but instead follow the balcony/decking round past the other shops on the left; turn left at the...corner and there it is. A nice setting without the fast food feel. The service was excellent, we were made to feel very welcome. The delicious pizzas arrived promptly and had very generous toppings. We intend to return later in our holiday and hope to have room to sample the tiramisu!More

I went to this restaurant with some friends and we spent an actually pleasant dinner. The waiter was really kind and patient, the food delicious. If you happen to visit Portimao, than you MUST give a chance to this place. I suggest to order a...lasagna with bolognese sauce, just amazing!More

Visited Friday evening in October 2018. Restaurant was surprisingly quiet for a Friday night. Received a warm welcome and quickly served with some drinks. Lots to choose from on the menu and the pizzas were hot and tasty.

A bit hidden as not on the main street but its worth a visit. Amazing food, had dinner there twice in a week. Great food and great service. Ingredients are fresh and really tasty, we highly recommend pizzas, caprese and tagliatelle bolognese; everything had a...genuine italian taste. Being Italian but living in the UK, we were surprised to find such an authentic italian gem while on holiday in Portimao. Highly recommend this place, we felt at home. Too many fake versions of Italian food are being promoted around the world, keep up the good quality guys!!More

This restaurant is in a street behind the Jupiter hotel. We ate in it three times in 10 days. This is because it is so good. It serves pasta and pizza in the main. The taste and quality of the food is some of the...best that my husband and I have tasted anywhere. The bruschetta starters are very filling, and among the best we have ever had. My husband raved about the tagliatelle and the lasagne. We both had pizzas. They are marvellous. The tiramasu sweet is awesome. The front of house is run single handed by a very pretty and efficient waitress. She does it all - taking and delivering order, preparing drinks, welcoming diners and clearing tables with a lovely smile and a charming manner. The restaurant opens at 7pm. If you have not pre-booked, get there early, as it fills up very quickly, and there are only 40 seats. Amarvellous place, Highly recommended.More

We don’t usually use Trip Advisor for meals but having had a couple of poor experiences (namely the peri peri chicken at Casa Del Mar) we needed help. This place came highly recommended and completely lived up to it. Starter, main and dessert were delicious...and the waitress was a star! Really lovely, thank you!More
