Chairs are these hard high backed Oriental style ones-quite uncomfortable. Decor and menu stuck in the 90s ....but food delicious and... read more

The menu was quite varied and, whilst the food that arrived wasn't quite what we were expecting (their veal mileanese was more like a stew), it was very tasty.

Our quest for Lisbon restaurants with vegetarian options led us to this cute, out-of-the-way little place in the Bairro Alto. The atmosphere is quiet, the wait staff friendly, and the pale green chairs unexpected in an Italian restaurant. We ordered the lemon-and-saffron pasta and the pasta pomodoro; both were fresh and well-prepared. We had a chocolate dessert (I don't remember... More

Simply not worth it. Pasta was not interesting at all. Ordered three different main courses - they all tasted the same. Service was fine.

I first tried to go to this restaurant just after I arrived in Lisbon. I went there at 7.30 only to find it didn't open until 8pm. Later in the week I was more adjusted to Lisbon time and so visited again, successfully this time. The service was very friendly. I fell in love with the gnocchi, delicate morsels made... More

It takes some time to find it, but the food is excellent and the wine is good. Good for romantic and nice dining. We had a memorable evening.

We went to Casa Nostra, at the recommendation of a friend who has lived in Lisboa for 25 years. We wanted a little change of pace from traditional portuguese food. The food was nicely prepared and very tasty. And the real star of the show was our waiter, Mariano, who was just so friendly and helpfu with excellent recommendations. We... More

We had these amazing plans for dinner, and they completely fell through, so we were just walking through Bairro Alto looking for a place to eat, saw this place and walked it. It was really great. They have a great Italian wine list, and we had two great bottles of chianti. They had really nice vegetarian food for our vegetarian.... More

Said to be one of the best italian restaurants in Lisbon, I went there to dinner for the second time last night, despite the first one wasn't all that good. They started off with their left foot: the menu had, among others, "Luso water 0,5 L" (which is a brand of still water) for 1,25€ and "House water" for the... More
