This is in all aspects a very unusual and extremely innovative restaurant. First its name: its sounds Italian but the owner Nuno calls it an "assador basque", then its location: not in the city centre but in a residential area in the outskirts of Leiria, the fancy decoration, the open kitchen with a modern wood fired oven - and it's...

Not in the center of Leiria a very good surprise in this restaurant. To start the service is great. Very professional and friendly personal. The wine list is complete affordable and with good pricing . The starters are one of the best parts of the place, follow by main courses with the capacity to surprise. Good to business diners

Outstanding selection of meat and seafood prepared by the chef using original recipes mostly with wood fired owen. Ask the Chef to match the food with the wine and you won't regret. Definitely one of the best restaurants in the planet.

Always ask to be surprised by the Chef, and he always exceeds my expectations. Thank You Chef Nuno. The service always excellent, very friendly and caring. Excellent wine gallery. Excellency food products. Excellent wooden oven cooked food, most mains are cooked in this special wooden oven. Definitely a Restaurant to visit if you going to Portugal.

It's difficult to find a matching place in Leiria. The meats are absolutely delicious. Very good service as well!

Puttanesca is one of my favorite restaurants in Portugal. It's a "must stop" if you are in Leiria or if you are driving from Lisbon to Porto. The food is amazing. The chef uses traditional techniques with high quality products. Meat is their specialty and "Chuletón" is my favorite! They have an excellent wine selection. After dinner try one of... More

Me and my boyfriend went to puttanesca on a casual dinner on a Saturday dinner. Menu seems to be interesting at first, but the food itself ended up to be pretty average. The service was pretty horrible. Got a starter we didn't choose after one hour that we ordered it, while the couple on the side who had arrive Long... More
