Fancied a change from the standard fare so came to this pizza restaurant. Very disappointed when pizza arrived as it was deep pan and actually though I tried to get through it I found it to be the worst pizza I've ever had. This is nothing like pizza you would get in an Italian and is to be avoided at... More

Stumbled upon this place as we meandered the streets. Next door to a church and buskers playing outside. We decided to try it out. We weren't disappointed. Service was friendly and efficient. We both decided on pizzas for our lunch but my husband wanted an added topping to one of the many varieties on the menu. This was not a... More

Visited this place twice that week, for lunch and for dinner. Both times the food was excellent, we had pizzas, pasta dishes, fish, seafood and meat and to drink we both had wine, beer, water, drinks etc. Staff is very friendly, English speaking, and we didn't wait long for our orders to be served. For starter we always had the... More

We were recommended this restaurant by a fellow guest staying at the Pestana Casino Park. We would probably have not eaten here if walking by due to the biased pizza choice. Trust me, choose the large steak cooked on the hot stone- best ever!

Great location in square next to church. Very atmospheric. Sometimes there is a band playing for the bar on the other side of the square. Staff are friendly. Food is relatively cheap and tasty. The pizza was very deep pan base which is not my favourite but had lots of toppings. Pasta - nicely al dente. Arabiata had no chilli... More

We ate here twice; the first night we had a fabulous meal, mixed salad starter, penne arabiata and spaghetti carbonara with a reasonably priced house white. The next night we had the same mixed salad starter but this time complete with live caterpillar! I showed this to the waitress who just laughed it off! The base of my pizza was... More

This place is too accustomed to making easy money from tourists they will never see again. My pizza was under-cooked, the base was still partly uncooked dough. I complained but the owner/manager flipped over the remains of the pizza to show me that it was cooked on the very outside underneath and told me that it wasn't possible to cook... More
