Had a lovely steak on the stone here which I could highly recommend. Friendly, attentive staff and great location just across the road from Sherry's - the best bar in Albufeira.

Just been tonight, we are not happy, my wife asked for chicken in chicken sauce, she said it tasted like fish sauce. She is not one happy bunny. Me I don't like Italian food cos when you have my wife's spaghetti Bologna there is just no Mach to it so I had pizza .

Came here last night after walking past the restaurant during the day and reading the reviews on trip advisor. You can sit inside or out, we chose inside as it was a bit nippy outside.The staff were so friendly and attentive, the meal was amazing and the price not over the top. We had the Capri bruschetta and the mushroom... More

Four of us enjoyed a lovely meal at this restaurant. Garlic bread starters are large so beware. We all had pasta dishes and they were well presented and delicious. However, I am unable to say the same about the wine menu. 40 euros for a bottle of Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc is ridiculous. Even checked with the waiter to make... More

Not authentic Italian in my opinion! Our family had a pizza, carbonara and lasagne! All 3 we thought were poor! The lasagne was all mince very little pasta and poorly seasoned! The carbonara was very dry as was the pizza which had little to no tomato Base! Also all diners crammed like sardines on a small decked area at the... More

The title says it all really. Aslam was attentive and very entertaining. In fact he made our night. Mauro was also lovely. Food was superb. 2 starters, 4 mains, a couple of beers, a couple of cokes and a litre of rose. 4 liqueur coffees. €80. Great value for money. Off the beaten track. Perfect. Thank you for a great...
