You could eat at bar stools or go next door to the little dining area. We just took ours and sat in a local square on benches. The pizzas were better than... More

We ordered three slices (which are large!) and we are full to the brim - zucchini with ricotta, prosciutto with cheese as well as olives with oregano and olive oil. The total bill came to €7.30 and we are... More

By writing this evaluation I am taking a huge risk that is, next time I go to Primo Basilico the place will be crowded. The facts are: fabulous italian style pizza a taglio; lots of flavour and various options (including vegetarian); very small place and for eating standing (it has a next door room for who wants to take the...

Our walking tour guide recommended this place and we were so thankful! After a long day of walking the hills of Lisbon delicious pizza and calzone really hit the spot. This is not hippie California fake cheese faux meat vegan pizza either. The combinations of vegetables and tomatoes and spices create cheese and meat free options that are better than... More

Staying in Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria

Neighbourhood Profile
Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria
Explore narrow streets and alleyways, small cafes and, of course, the internationally acclaimed Fado music. The earth-shattering Great Earthquake of 1755 destroyed most of the city but the contiguous neighborhoods of Mouraria, Castelo and Alfama remained standing to this day. These neighborhoods represent Lisbon at its historical best. The cool breeze of the Tagus river will take you up the hills to the sound of Fado, where you'll discover the best "tascas," eat delicious fresh fish and drink great wines. Discover hidden viewpoints and ancient traces of other civilizational ruins in the heart of the Portuguese capital. These are centuries-old neighborhoods that will welcome you to the very best of old Lisbon culture.
