Casa Italia exists on two locations. The food is about the same on both places but the staff is like night and day. The one on Estrada Monumental you should avoid since the staff was extremely unfriendly. The other place howerver is great, good pasta and pizza to very nice price, recommened but be aware of that it is often... More

I believe this to be the best Pizza (thin Pastry) house in Funchal and reasonably priced. Always busy even at lunchtime (they have a daily special) which must say a lot. If, like myself, you prefer your food on hot plates you MUST, like nearly everywhere in Funchal, ask for it as it seems that the Madeirans are quite happy... More

We were in a party of two couples and chose this restaurant because it was just across the road from our hotel. You can't really go wrong in this area as all the many restaurants are having to compete for custom and offer good food at reasonable prices. The pizzas were excellent and the staff were quite happy to allow... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local, meals arrived very quickly, but this was because everything was pre-cooked. Pasta was oily and tasteless, salmon was dry, pizza was too salty. In fact everything was far too salty. Waiter seemed to not want to be there and we were in and out in less than 30 mins. Would not... More

We ate here twice during the holiday. The pasta dishes were delicious and the pizzas huge. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the bill was very reasonable. We will definitely be going back.

Was really looking forward to going to this restaurant for our lunch on our first day in Funchal but was slightly disappointed. My hubby had the beef escalope which was quite tough and chewy and my pasta dish was average. Villa Italia in Belfast is far better.

A good Italian restaurant serving delicious thin crispy pizzas with just the right amount of topping and not floating in oil or poor quality cheese. The pastas were also very good & made with fresh ingredients & the pasta was never over cooked. They also do fresh crispy salads. The staff work very well & in a professional manner. Will... More

My partner and I have just returned after a fortnight in Funchal. I had a list of the top 10 restaurants from Trip Advisor but this was closest to our hotel and we called in on the off chance when we were passing one day. The food was very tasty, especially the pasta, and the house wine was very pleasant.... More
