My wife and I had our anniversary meal here September 2018 and it couldn't be faulted service was excellent location good. One of the best tagliatelli fruit de mar I've had.
Only down side is the chairs are not comfortable.

Choosed this restaurant for our last dinner in Albufeira because it looked really nice from the outside. We were well welcomed by one of the staff and were given a table at the terrace after waiting a few minutes for a free table. We had to wait for a while until some of the staff came to get the order. We ordered bruchetta as a starter, but never got this. When we got our main dish after 45 minutes the staff said sorry that they had forgotten the starter. We said it was okay as we didnt want to wait any longer for our food. We had ordered medium well cooked beef, but this was very bad cooked! We got a new plate, but was not satisfied with this cooking either. When that is said the staff said sorry in the end and we got a discount. Service can be improved!

We went to old town for some dinner and unfortunately we believed in general perception on this website which was a big mistake. If you know your food this place is a NO NO!!!
Alex was helpful by finding us a table. The other staff was attentive too. HOWEVER, the food is definitely no good whatsoever. Ordered a starter which gave us the idea how the mains were gonna be. Very dry and simple bruschetta which was dissapointing. But then the main!! ordered a pizza and meatballs which they were definitely made by supermarket products. Obviously the price is very high for the food you get. From outside it looks nice and inviting but make no mistake its all illusion. DO NOT RECOMMEND!!!

This very agreeable little Italian restaurant, located just off the fisherman's beach in the 'old town' in Albufeira, boasts a well thought out and comprehensive menu offering pizza and genuine Italian pasta.
Ask for a table on their terrace and watch the crazy world of Albufeira 'by night' walk past at your feet, whilst indulging yourself in some truly authentic Italian cuisine.
The service was provided by our server 'Ana' who is a great professional and well deserving of all the praise heaped upon her by customers who appreciate great service with a smile. She is really a star (as well as the pasta).

We chose this restaurant to dine at for our last meal on our trip because the reviews were quite good. The service was rather slow with our first food items taking 45 mins from ordering. My wife had the carbonara which was bland and the pasta seemed under cooked. I had the spicy pasta that was quite tasty. The food overall was good quality just I think some people haven’t experienced real Italian food when they go writing such good reviews. Go visit Italy people! Not the worst and not the best the old town has to offer.

Thank Conorosh
