We have been going to this restaurant for years. Usually more than once during the week and often holidaying here twice a year. Food is always good. However tonight they were too busy to give good service. Starters and main course were served promptly but then we were totally forgotten. Even when we had been asked if we wanted a... More

Had the tourist menu 11.50 euros. Excellent food and great service. Even out of season this restaurant was busy. Would certainly go back.

Lovely meal here off the tourist menu. Soup or garlic bread, any pizza or pasta, side salad and glass wine for under £10. Best if all it was really really good. Staff and restaurant nice and welcoming. Total bargain that we can't wait to repeat.

If you want very tasty, well cooked and presented Italian food this restaurant is a good choice. It has an excellent range of pasta and pizza dishes to satisfy all palates. Friendly, helpful staff and very reasonable prices complete the deal!!

So difficult to pick a really good restaurant amongst so many but this certainly hits the spot ! The atmosphere was right and the food Mmmmm. As you can guess there are so many places to choose from in Albufeira but we would strongly recommend the desserts.. The staff were very attentive and the usual Port was offered at the... More

We have eaten here a few times and the food is good.Service can sometimes frustrate you -long gaps when you are ignored-never the same waiter bringing your courses,but good food when you get it!
