We had some terrible meals during our 7 night stay in Carvoeiro... this beautiful Italian saved the day! On first glance, I thought this restaurant was a medical centre... however its a beautiful, quaint Italian. We sat inside the restaurant and in the rear garden area on our two visits. The Lasagne is amazing and the calzone is gorgeous. Portugal... More

Wonderful place, very friendly staff....we had starters (spicy prawns, garlic mushrooms), mains (filetto diavolo at €30 but so worth it, and spag bol), then desserts (panacotta and tiramasu)......all were so so tasty and can't wait to go back.....may be wise to reserve table as many people were turned away whilst we were dining.

We go back to Vila Medici year after year, the food has always been lovely (the fillet steak in Gorgonzola sauce is one of the best dishes I have had. The waiter always remembers us. We always go on the night after we arrive so we book from home to ensure a table as there are 8 of us. Classy... More

Ate here a few times on recent holiday in Carvoeiro. Food was always of a high standard, can thoroughly recommend the Squid Ink Pasta with Clams, Tagliatelle with chanterelles and truffles and an excellent tiramisu! Service was hit and miss as the first couple of times we visited we couldn't fault the friendly, attentive service where we were even offered... More

However still had that grown up and classy feeling in a really clean lovely outside eating area. Had a really nice atmosphere and the... More

We had a lovely evening courtesy of the friendly staff and exceptional food. The steak while not cheap at 30 euros is exceptionally good....the pasta and pizza was loved by our children and we all had a great evening. Highly recommended !!

From outside this restaurant looks unappealing with tables overlooking the busy street. Inside however the seating area is very spacious with a beautiful outside courtyard. Service and food excellent especially the beef. Very good wine list and excellent service.
