Italian restaurant in the Old Town. Excellent and friendly service, nice quiet atmosphere, Good food and wine, varied choice of food. I enjoyed the pizza and Tiramisu, they also do a range of pasta, seafood and steaks. Great desserts.

OK so there are Italian restaurants in all towns and cities but we very pleased that we dropped on this one! House wines were good value for money and the menu, although not extensive, was excellent! Indeed I did note that the Head Chef/Proprietor on one occasion, whilst chatting in the dining area, insisted that a waiter take one offering... More

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.

We had the Capri bruschetta and the mushroom... More
