I expected a lot of this restaurant: indeed a nice atmosphere, warm ambiance, clean... But the price you pay for the food is too much when you compare the food and service with other restaurants in Carvoeiro and Algarve. The housewine ( € 4,- per glass!) was awfull, the draft beer tasted sour. The food was ok, but nothing special,... More

On your walk down the main strip in Carvoeiro towards the central plaza you will pass Villa Medici in the middle of Rua do Farol on your left side. The restaurants offers a stylish Italian atmosphere with a great personal as well as professional service which makes you feel welcome. If your choice is fish, meat, pasta or a combination... More

Okay, this place is a bit pricey, but very well worth it. We had our 10 year anniversary here and we took our five year old twins. The staff gave us champagne as a treat which was such a lovely surprise. Our kids loved the food and we had such a lovely evening. Order the pizza it is to die... More

Went looking for good basic Italian fare. After what was a solid tomato bocconcini starter, my wife and I both had pastas. I had a pasta special with veal and mushrooms that ended up resembling soup more than pasta and my wife had Carbonara, which was good, but not great. All in all the food was decent and close to...

Good Italian food, lovely restaurant has been done up from the picture on streetmap showing as I write, very chic garden area at the rear, we, however, were seated on the balcony at the front, and enjoyed watching the world go by as we ate. Very attentive and friendly staff, couldn't fault a thing. We had a table straight away,... More

My partner and I have visited this restaurant every year in the summer. If Italian food is something you like, then this is particularly special. The grounds outside are beautiful, and the restaurant is equally beautiful too. The staff are exceptionally attentive and friendly. We love Italian food, but this restaurant was literally one of the best Italians we have... More

Had a fantastic meal at this restaurant, if we had been in the area longer we would definitely return for a 2nd meal. Fully recommend the sorbet with Prosecco and Vodka :)

This italian restaurant is right next to another italian but the decors vary significantly - the former has a large patio and a decor that mimics an opulent, classic italian villa and the latter is more trendy. Wé´re huge pizza fans so, never been in neither and checking at the entrance menus that pizzas were similarly priced, we tossed a... More
