Great wait staff. Even of busy nights, very attentive. Good Italian food for the money. Great wine selection. Definitely would go back when back in Praia da Rocha.

Very unexpected surprise with this place as the menu is quite large and it's tucked away in the back of other restaurants... however the food and wine was great especially the pizza's as they have the only stone bake pizza oven in Praia da Rocha... if you like Italian definitely worth a visit

Not a big fan of pizza but decided to give it a go. The pizza is made to order and had a tasty thin crispy crust cooked in a wood fired oven. They also had a good red house wine service was also good. I'm not giving 5 star because the seating is on flat benches. A bit hard for... More

Tasty Italian pizza and pastas. Service is always friendly. Prices are reasonable. Tucked away behind other buildings, but always popular and full of locals.

Nice place to eat good Italian food (mostly pizzas) close to Praia da Rocha. As mentioned, in La Gioconda you can find good pizzas, but not overwhelming.
