This is a nice restaurant, situated in a park on the Rio Mondego. The food was good, but nothing spectacular, and so was the service. The food was reasonably priced. The view from the restaurant is very beautiful.

Incredible porcini mushroom soup. We spent a leisurely afternoon on a hot day drinking green wine and watching the river. A cool spot by the river with good Italian food. Enjoyed the seafood risotto and salmon carpaccio. Super service.

I travel with gluten free travel cards in every language. Our waiter immediately brought over the English speaking waiter to help me. He walked me thru the menu and helped me make safe choices. I had an excellent dinner with pork chops, cooked cabbage and potatoes. Lots of flavor for a change (I've been having some pretty bland gf meals).... More

Italia is located in a park, by the river, which makes it a perfect spot, especially in the spring / summer time. The food is well prepared and you can find all the italian classics. There is a sizeable list of pastas and pizzas and an amazing tiramisu. The prices are not cheap when compared to other restaurants in town,... More

I highly recommend this restaurant for those that want to spend a nice meal in Coimbra near the river, specially in sunny days. However, the service is quite slow and they forget sometimes what you've ordered. On the other side, it is extremely cheap for the food quality and the view. Recommended if you're not in a hurry!

Living in the city for many years I know this restaurant quite well and I totally recommend it. Prices are very accessible and acceptable. All is very clean and is good for a romantic dinner near the river. Just so many years going there and once employers are the same they could be a bit more nice and easy to... More

I didn't know what taste like real, fresh mozzarella before going there (I mean really, it was mind blowing). Good food, great sangria, location amazing (next to the river), good service BUT looking at my credit card bill later, they charged us the dinner twice... no wonder the waiter "offered us" a digestive shot after the meal :p
