had one of our meals on holiday in Paesano. Really enjoyed our food and the service was very friendly. We were sat towards the back of the restaurant near the outside terrace which was lovely.

There were 5 of us went twice. We were able to sit at the back which is in the open air but surrounded by walls, so not windy at all. The seating is comfortable and if you are on the back wall you are sat on cushions. We did not feel squashed in at all. We started with bottles of... More

This restaurant is based in a great position on the main street in alvor. It looks well and always seems busy. The food however was just ok. We had pizza and stuffed ravioli for mains. Neither were great. Service was also average.

Visited here three times during our fortnight stay in Alvor. Dined here last year also and again it didn't disappoint. Food is delicious every time and staff are so friendly and jolly. We like to sit outside and watch the world go by and the atmosphere here is simply beautiful and relaxing. Prices may be a little more dearer than... More

Visited as part of a group of 7 and had a great meal The staff were very helpful and friendly; one of the group doesn't like cheese so had asked for a cheeseless pizza which was provided without any problems and actually looked quite nice!
