I went to the restaurant with a group of work friends in a Friday noon and the experience started well... the location seemed ok, the service as well. But as the restaurant start to get full, the service went from bad to worse... We were 10 people, and we all asked for deserts, but only 9 came to the table...... More

just for lunch (before leaving for Holanda) we thought we would give it a try. Sat outside. We loved the Focaccia with garlic, made of pizza-dough. Also the mushrooms with garlic and oliveoil. (poor neighbour in the plane ;-)). The main course was also perfect. As was the lady that served us. She was super friendly, I saw her being... More

This restaurant offers a nice view to youngest neighbourhood in Lisbon, with an esplanade by the river, which is always nice, although it isn't something awesome. The pasta is good but not great; the same as the pizzas. However, the service is very good and the waitresses very nice.

The worst place I've been for a long time. The location is attractive, but when you get in you understand you've made a mistake. No towels on the tables, more than 30 minutes before someone comes to take your order (and only half of the tables with clients), lost papers on the floor and nobody cares, ordinary cuisine... I live... More

If you like italien food, pizzas... This is a good restaurant to go. The location is very good. The service is not at the level that it should be.

We really enjoyed our shared pizza and salad here. The staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful and our lunch was really good, The fact that we were surrounded by such beauty helped it all go down too!!
