    Charming restaurant in Porto centro, with delicious food and excellent service. They seem to cater well to tourists with hospitality speaking several languages. The atmosphere is romantic, great dinner with friends or date night. Outstanding menu.

    The atmosphere and service were excellent. The food was very tasty and the staff were attentive. They made a special vegetarian mushroom risotto for my partner to accommodate his dietary requirements.

    Just perfect! Warm welcome, very practical open guidance re COVID, and explanations of food and specials. The starter salad was huge, jamon excellent and rigatoni (of the day) and fava beans lovely. And we tasted 3 different red wines to pick the best by the glass!

    This is one of the best Restaurants in Porto. If you like Italian food you need to come here to enjoy the good quality, awesome service and maybe a free homemade Limoncello spirit ????

    Loved this Italian restaurant. Staff were very friendly and welcoming from the moment we arrived. Food was excellent Great atmosphere. We finished our meal with a Limoncello on the house which is made by owners. Best ever. Do not miss this restaurant if you are in Porto but make sure to make a reservation

    From the moment we walked in we were made to feel very welcome. Try a cocktail to start. The menu and the food is fantastic; local Iberian produce cooked in an Italian style. All of the staff are very helpful and friendly and are always happy to explain any aspect of your menu choice. A booking isn’t always necessary, but it’s probably wise to do so to avoid disappointment. Pay them a visit. You won’t regret it.

    Good place and food seemed good, but my wife’s carbonara was so saulty that it was hard to eat. Seemed to be an unlucky day since mine plate was great and price is also very reasonable

    I orded three dishes. Plenty of food, well presented and accordingly to what was described in the menu. When in doubt, just ask the waiter. Service was excelent. The only complain was the lack of seafood on the menu. There was none.

    Lives up to expectations. Really tasty food. Well priced,excellent service. Must book to avoid disapointment. Seafood Spaghetti and Wild boar meat sauce pasta were both delicious. Camembert to start and Tiramisu to finish were perfect bookends to a great main course.
