An incredible gem overshadowed by it's well known neighbour, Bovino. This place is incredible! Delicious food and unbelievable service. Very expensive but so worth it. Treat yourself, you won't regret it.

We had to wait another year before we could eat here, but the wait was well rewarded. A complete remodel has given the interior little color but left the food and hospitality top notch. The weather put us indoors, so warm but could be anywhere....More

At the evening we were there two couples with children joined 4-6 years But it is not your usual Italien resto where children are very welcome And the Menü has no special dishes for children

The enjoyment of a fine meal here is not limited to just your taste buds - the whole experience is to be savoured and enjoyed. Summer dining at Casa Velha is on the gorgeous patio. Fabulous food, sunsets and starlight, and magnificent views across the lake. An experience that is hard to beat.
