Description: Small family-run Italian restaurant just off the main square Praca Gil Eanes in Lagos. Delicious Italian food, with a wide range of specials every day. Interesting sounding meat and fish dishes, and not expensive. We had the home-made pasta dishes, which were delicious and good value. Friendly staff, who also apparently speak German. Highly recommended as a cut above the usual pizza places, and a change from the many Portuguese restaurants in Lagos. Opens 12-15 at lunch and 18.30 to 24.00 for dinner.

We visited Lagos for 5 days during the Easter break. We tried the best restaurants in town but this place was the best we had by a mile. The best pasta we’ve had by Italian standards. The owner and the waitress were amazing. We are very hard to please when it comes to food but everything about the place was perfect. Try the trio pasta and you will be amazed. My husband had the tagliata di manzo and he was very impressed. Desert wise, I am not a tiramisu fan but the one they do is home made and it is heaven on a plate. We smiled the entire evening for the amazing food and company. We are so sorry that we discovered this place only on our last night in Lagos. If we ever return, this place will be one of the reasons for it. Thank you so much for everything!

We normally chose between Borsalino or the Italian in the square but decided to try this one after all the reviews on TA.

Hard to find but very smart inside and good tables with linen clothes and napkins.

The menu is comprehensive and is expensive at 6 euros for soup as an example. Food was excellent and service was good.

The food IS expensive and a bottled craft beer was 6.40 euros.

Bill for two for minestrone soup and pasta with two craft beers and a pironi. 68 Euros.

On the negative the gentleman with the tie perhaps the owner was quite flippant and off hand to us and other guests who he actually got into an argument with. There parting words were we will not be back.

For that reason we would not go back.

Came here last year and loved it, so came back this trip. Not disappointed. Sat up on the terrace overlooking Lagos and had another superb meal....the lemon half moon ravioli is to die for!! Finished off with house special Tiramasu which is so delicious. Will be coming back for another meal before the end of the holiday!

Lovely family run restaurant. Great service and wonderful food. We had salads to start, then Penne Arrabiata and Taggliatelle with ham and mushrooms. Generous portions and great flavour all around. Highly recommended!
