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.

Went out looking for food and glad we chose this place. Staff very friendly, efficient and polite. From the writer to the owner all very good indeed. Jan, on recommendation fro our waiter chose the NINJA pizza and said it wS beautiful. Really tasty and...14 inches across. Not expensive either. I had bolognese, and glad I asked for the kbambino menu, asi couldn't even eat it all. Topped off with a nice chilled bottle of Portugal's number one selling mateus rose. Definitely recommend this wonderful restaurant ( ice cream section.More

Best meal I’ve had since arriving in Portugal two weeks ago. Walnut and Mushroom risotto was bursting with flavour, pork was ever so slightly breaded so had a nice crispness to it. Rigatoni was delicious and had plenty of perfectly cooked shrimp. The homemade desserts...were a wonderful way to finish the evening. Atmosphere was relaxing and loved that there was no smoking!More

Ordered a Margarita Italian pizza. The crust was frozen pre-made, the basil and oregano were dry pieces on top of the pizza. The “fresh mozarella”wasn’t fresh and the pizza tasted like a piece of home-made cheese toast. I’ve had better frozen bought pizzas. Hands down...worst pizza I’ve ever had.More

Nice bruschetta for starter and pizzas were good. Salmon was a little overdone but I couldn't taste the red pesto that it was supposed to be cooked in. Accompanying pea risotto was tasty. Majority of waiting staff were young and completely indifferent. We did not...feel overly welcome and felt we were an inconvenience. There are much nicer and more welcoming places near-by.More

We ate here in our first day in Portimão … an early meal after a long day travelling. Was good, tasty and staff were attentive! A bit too early for atmosphere … but later in the week we could see that it was a popular...place later in the evening!More

My partner and I stopped here randomly for lunch and had a great experience. We found too many things on the menu we wanted to eat so had a random request to see if they were happy to do a 1/2 and 1/2 pizza for...my partner and I to split and share a pasta! They happily accommodated us as the restaurant wasn’t busy and we thoroughly enjoyed what we ate and were really appreciative of the ‘hassle’! We were extremely full but still decided to go for a dessert which the waiter brought out to us to pick from. We opted for the Banoffee Pie….it was exceptional. One of the nicest desserts I’ve had in years. Overall a great experience, great tasting food with great service!More

My husband and I recently had beautiful meal at La Gioconda Alvor. I had Calzone Farcito and he had pizza Alentejo and they where both delicious. We also shared a bottle of Euphoria Rose wine. A fabulous meal, we will certainly be back.

This was my favourite restaurant from my visit last year anyway (great pizza, great deserts, great service) so I had to try the set lunch for €10. I had garlic bread with cheese, my favourite pizza with prosciutto and rocket and a bowl of pistachio...gelato. It was all excellent and the service was great. It is easily missed as it is situated behind a closed restaurant but look for Humberto’s and it’s next to it.More
