Every time we feel the need to have traditional Italian food we pay Pulcini's a visit. This Italian family will make you feel welcome and at home. The food is amazing and portions are not snob at all. Limoncello tiramisu is a must have!

Good Italian Restaurant in a small and pleasant space. Pasta is very fresh and we see making that in the cuisine. The service is very good. Only the prices are a little bit high.

A delicious tiramissu in the end was the cherry on top of the cake. The bad thing was the time they took to bring our meals. The restaurant wasn't full at... More

The restaurant isn't situated in the centre, but the food and service is really worth the trip!! Real italian owners, cosy atmosphere and most importantly truly excellent food. It was by far the best restaurant we went to during our 5-day trip to Porto. The pasta I had wasn't even on the menu, the waiter made a few suggestions and... More

It was the wind time we went to the restaurant and the quality just keeps spectacular. Great pasta, a lovely lasagna and the best tiramisu ever. It is made by the owners "mama" and is a piece of heaven. The ambiance is nice, the service friendly and cosy.

The first night we were there, they didn't have it. We asked if she could make it the next day. We came in the next night... More
