After a swim competition, we picked the closest pizza place and wound up here. Charming character of a place. 40 years in existence and it shows. Pizzas small, not very original, most with one or two ingredients at most. Pricey for the size and garnishes. The kids ordered the Pepperoni but the waitress, clearly inexperienced and bored with life, could... More

I went for dinner to this restaurant, with my husband. We both liked it very much, the ambient is cozy and kind of romantic... small place but just perfect for us. The pizza was great, 100% "house made". I also recommend the garlic and cheese bread, as a starter, the best I ever had. The service was good, nice place... More

We arrived late at night in Faro and were looking for a quick late dinner to take with us to the Hotel. Came across this pizza place and ordered a pizza with pepperoni to take away. We did not have to wait long and the pizza looked beautifully handmade and tasted perfectly.

We were staying at the Hotel Eva in Faro, and found La Pizza down a back alley beyond McDonalds just a hundred yards or so away. It looked much more authentic than the touristy places in the main streets, and opened for dinner from 19.00. The staff spoke fairly good English; we ordered 2 pizzas, a green salad, a half... More

This a small place in the narrow side street but their pizzas are really very good. Thin and of great variety of choices. The gazpacho is very different from what it is in Spain. We did like it at all. The rest of food was great

It is a bit out of the way but not impossible to find. We sat at a table in the street it was OK but not startling. I had a Margarita Pizza it had a LOT of cheese on, too much for me though, but if you like a very cheesy Pizza you will love these! Mr S had canneloni... More

Little back street independent trattoria away from the crowds serving pizza and pasta dishes. All had pizzas and they were well above average with abundant toppings. Good choice of wines, the recommended red being excellent value. Friendly, fast service without the fast food feel.

Located in a narrow side street, La Pizza is well signposted and you have the option to sit outside in the well-lit street or inside either downstairs or upstairs. We chose to sit outside which was very pleasant however the 'cheap' tables and chairs were not ideal on the cobbled surface. Service was attentive but not the quickest we have... More

This restaurant is sweet. The decor is very old but the cook preparing food in front of you is endearing. The food was wonderful. I had a delicious spaghetti bolognese and my boyfriend had a pizza. We had a tasty bottle of red wine and it was nice to be able to see the collection of wines before choosing. We... More
