The pasta and the pizza my boyfriend and I ate were very good. I just wish the staff were a bit more friendly since this place is more expensive than most in the area.

A very good pizza fruti di mare, bit expensive for Portugal though. I recommend highly if you are passing by coimbra

I am from Coimbra and it had been five years since I went to this well-known restaurant. If last time, it was not that good, this time wasn't either. I was with a couple of friends from Coimbra. Most of them ordered pizza, but I ordered a Combinazioni (Raviolli, Rigatoni, Lasagna). My dish took more time than the pizzas, and... More

The environment is perfect. The waiters are polite and the service is fast. The food is of good quality, specially the pizzas, which are baked in a homemade way in a rustic oven heated by wood. The deserts are also delicious.

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!
