The best tomato soup ever is served at Papa Manuel in Lido area close to Funchal. Other dishes are also good with moderate prices eventough this restaurant is located on sea level. The place is very popular among the local people. I can warmly recommend this place.

The worst type of pseudo italian cuisine. Asked specifially for al dente pasta - not happened, arrived seriously overcooked. Pizza chilli had about 1 kg of minced meat on top, just disgusting. Pasta with shrimps, I do not know what they've done to them but tasted like paper towel. Both medium portions - HUGE. We just went there because of... More

Called in on a lunchtime wanting Italian food. Super location next to the sea in the popular Lido district of Funchal. Pasta, steak sandwich and beer for euro 17. Service was quick and food tasty would go again.

Shared a medium pizza - really nice and plenty to eat. Went there as the bus driver recommended it and told us all the locals go there for good pizza and pasta. Sat outside on one of the tables overlooking the sea front - makes an amazing difference. Inside would not have been so special. Service quick despite being busy... More

Had 2 grande pizza's for 3 people. The "Hot Dancer" the best we have ever had. Stunning view of the Atlantic and well worth a visit.

Things started well - small glass of Poncha as a welcome along with some broad beans to accompany them as is traditional it seems. Then the Madeiran garlic bread to start was delicious. The main courses were both pretty poor. Pasta with Frutti di Mare should be excellent this close to the sea, but what came was a stodgy sauce... More

Located in a tourist area with very nice gardens and parks around, has a fantastic view of the ocean. Their outdoor seating is quite pleasant. Turning the best part, the pizzas are the best on the island, plus pizzas have pasta, regional dishes of fish and meat as the "espetada regional". The service is fast and friendly employees always ready to do whatever it takes, even to clarify facts about the island.
