Lovely

Very nice typical Italian restaurant - its my husbands new favourite - we loved the authentic dishes and if you can sit outside its even nicer - staff were very attentive and it was good value for the food we received. We will be visiting more often this year.

We went here on a family holiday, some of our group had been here before and said it was good. We were seated outside, and although it wasn't too cold, there were fleecy blankets on the chairs, which was great! Our party included 3 children under 5 years, who shared 2 pizzas between them. The grown ups generally went for... More

There was six of us and we all agreed it was absolutely wonderful food. The staff couldn't do enough for you, we was greeted on arrival with a glass of fizz. The decor, food and staff couldn't fault anything, it was a bit pricey but we expected it to be. Would certainly go again and recommend it.

We were very impressed with this restaurant. The decor was very inviting and the staff were very friendly. I had the veal pasta and my wife had the spaghetti carbonara and they were were great! Pricing was also average at around 14 euros per main. Will definitely be returning!

OMG! Nightmare! Our first day, and we were looking for nice cheap pizzeria for the kids so we stumble across this very fancy looking place. I asked for a glass of sparkling water so they bring over a litre bottle of the stuff (expensive glass bottle that costs an arm and a leg!!), which we returned, so we got dirty... More

First of all, we were in this and many other Carvoiero restaurants last November/December when we were here for 6 weeks. Now we have returned for 3 more weeks and I am less enchanted with the restaurant street. We came back to Villa Medici for Easter Saturday where we had a reserved table in the courtyard. I was impressed as... More

Another special meal. Stuck with favourites and were brilliant particularly pasta with fillet steak. Service was really attentive. Would like to see some specials as the menu never changes.

As a frequent visitor to Carvoeiro this was a fabulous place when it opened as we visited it on many occasions. Unfortunately our last 2 visits left an awful lot to be desired and as a result we will not be returning. Surly staff, cold food, a shrug of the shoulders attitude and all that for a what is not...
