Do not expect to be able to eat lunch here in one hour. We had an hour for lunch and were told that dining here would be no problem. It was. It wasn't that the service was poor, it is just that they aren't designed for a quick meal. It is meant to sit and enjoy the view of the... More

Not too crowded, this is a small restaurant were locals often go at lunch time. Surrounded by one of the city parks*, with a nice view over Mondego river, it’s a good place for a nice and comforting hot meal. Very nice food, not only Italian, nice desserts and a complete meal for about fifteen euros/person. You also have the... More

I consider the restaurant competent in what they do rather than being a top-flight establishment. And they do it so well. Not only did we find the staff very helpful, honest and friendly, but it is impossible to get across how efficient they are in delivering and clearing away after you and being ready for the next set of diners....

My wife and I decided to eat here because of the reviews we read on Trip advisor in addition it was within easy walking distance to our hotel and was located on the river. We ordered the Ensalada salad and gnocchi as appetizers. They were very good and were very large portions. I ordered the Tortellini Italia while my wife... More

Service started out spotty as we waited about 20 minutes for someone to come by. But the wine list is solid and there are tons of pizza and pasta options. Looks touristy, but it's legit! After a week in Portugal, we were happy to have a non-Portugese meal and this was perfect!

We went for dinner and sat outside, near the Mondego river, a lovely setting. We had pizza and calzone, both with wonderful flavour. The service was quick and polite.

After eating mainly fish with potatoes for a week, we were very content with this Italian restaurant. The restaurant is situated in a public park with a view on the river and a fountain. We stayed in Coimbra for 2 nights and both nights we ate here. As a starter we had a mixed plate on day 1 with beef... More

Desserts also looked appealing but there was no room for it this time. Service trys to be fast (also a surprise... More

Very good restaurant for Italian food located near the Mondego river and inside the park Manuel Braga in the middle of Coimbra. Usually very busy but with nice service because they have a great staff. The food is very tasty and you can seat in a room looking for the river or outside in the park. If you like Italian... More
