Lovely lunch in the square of this pretty town - sunny and warm. Good value menu and very reasonable drinks - friendly and efficient service. Only comment is that mixed fish was only prawns and calamari - but they were really delicious in a light tempura batter. Can recommend for an al fresco lunch and the interior looked lovely too...

Returning to Italia after an almost two year absence, was not a mistake. The saying , "You should never go back!" Was definitely not the case for us. Enza and Raffaele have tastefully spruced up the interior of the restaurant, and their training and efforts can be seen in the wait staff, and the added Italian cooks who help Raffaele... More

Very fun restaurant with excellent singing wait staff. Food was also excellent. Small area so reservations are a must.

situated in the square is this fantastic restaurant. The menu has a variety of dishes not just Italian. The menu is varied and the food superb. The staff are very attentive. Good choice if wines and beer. I would not hesitate in reccomending this place to dine. They can cater for large and small parties. Excellent.

Food is ok, though nothing too special. Perfect location at the village square (where this place is definitely the best option), friendly service and acceptable prices partially make up, though. Separate ice cream parlour cum cocktail bar.

Atmosphere, staff, service, fillet steak were all excellent but the meal was let down by the chips. Why do restaurants all over Europe think that white, insipid, limp chips should be the 'norm'. We visited Benagil Beach & the restaurant up the steps just before getting on the beach produced the best chips that we had in Portugal. Restaurant owners,... More

Visited this restaurant this past week. Food was ok but nothing exceptional better places in Ferragudo to eat. They did do a good value for money set menu for lunch though. O Barril next door is far better.

Visited Italia last night and my boyfriend and I were so impressed with the friendly staff. They were so attentive and sweet - the 'chefs shrimp' starter that we shared was excellent! Would recommend highly!

Description
Italia Restaurant, located in the centre of the piazza of Ferragudo, a pearl of the Algarve right in front of the Atlantic ocean. Our History The managers Enza and Raffaele have not been in Portugal for long but they have been successful restaurateurs for more than 25 years in Italy, and now they have undertaken the challenge of bringing the true Italian flavours to Portugal with enthusiasm and professionalism. The kitchen is formed of a completely Italian team, quite unique in Portugal, that give their best every day creating authentically traditional flavours with meat and fish, and of course pasta, spaghetti, penne, gnocchi, tagliatelle, ravioli etc., with a whole range of home-made egg pasta made with imported and accurately selected flours, cooked al dente according to the Italian tradition: a real, unique treat. And our tasty pizzas: more than 30 specialities made with 100% Italian flours, slow-rising and therefore highly digestible.
