Great risotto

This is a fairly basic Italian restaurant (not fancy) with pretty delicious food! Try the seafood risotto and a glass of white wine for a meal that will definitely not disappoint. Afterwards, go for an evening stroll along the river before heading up to the old town for drinks and sunset views.

I went there for a lunch with a friend and we both were very unlucky with our food. Notice that I chose a basic pizza and my friend some pasta. The food was pretty terrible (the pasta was salty and the cream did not felt fresh) and we felt that we were never coming back again. That was not my... More

This restaurant is situated on the riverside and it is possible to get a table next to the window if you book early. It is very popular with families but not overly noisy. The food is authentic traditional Italian and is served by friendly attentive staff.

Great location situated on the edge of the River Mondego on top of the water. We visited the restaurant on a Sunday evening where it busy but not crowded. Upon arrival the waiter kindly let us choose our table which was a nice touch. The wine we had was so nice that I sat and ordered a case for home!... More

Every time I feel like having a great pasta dish I go to Italia. Fresh pasta is delicious and ingredients are respected. I also appreciate the dessert, the view to river Mondego and the kind service of the staff.

Extensive pasta menu and great prices. We had a shrimp and courgette pasta in tomato sauce and a mixed pasta lasagne with a garlic pizza and a couple of drinks each. Price was under 25 euros. Food was very nice. Also dog friendly. Highly recommended.

When we arrived, the waiter was playing with a bicycle. Then we asked for a table, they told us to choose, we chose an outside one, and then the "bicycle waiter" came and said it was reserved, even though it had no indication like the other reserved tables. I asked for a pizza, and it was served with a raw... More

The food here can only really be classed as Ok. Very standard Italian fare with slightly inflated prices that take into account it's lovely view and location. Selection was decent albeit expensive but the pizzas were well priced for the quality of ingredients and taste. Its certainly worth a trip if you want a light meal overlooking the Rio Mondego....

The food is very good, Italian, and with a reasonable price considering the view. It has a platform over the river in the inside.
