Nice little restaurant

Lovely friendly restaurant with good food at a good price. Also live music some nights which was great to listen to while dining. The one negative of this restaurant is if you sit at a table on the corner you will be beside the road. It's not busy but I choose a little further round

This is a large upmarket restaurant attached to a big hotel. We had not booked but although very busy the restaurant found us a table outside. The service was excellent, we enjoyed pasta and risotto dishes in relaxed surroundings at a reasonable price. We would definitely visit this restaurant again.

We regularly choose to enjoy the well presented and tasty dishes in this restaurant. It is popular and really best to book in advance if choosing to dine in an evening. We are time-share members of The Residence so we also enjoy the advantage of 10% off with our Prestige card. My favourite dishes are their Risottos and Lasagne. They... More

We have dined here sevaral times before and always had a good experience this time we were a little disappointed.The service was very good but we were disappointed with the quality of the food. We've enjoyed Risottos here in the past but what we were served was not as good as what we have had previously. Everyone can have an... More

Lovely restaurant in a fab location near the sea. The bruschetta are lovely (especially the mushroom) as are the pizzas and pastas and the staff are really helpful in the choice of wine etc. I'm not sure how long the restaurant has been open, we had not been before, but we went three times in the fortnight and each time...

This smart and contempery Italian restaurant is another good favourite restaurant of ours whilst in Madeira due to the freshly cooked delicious cuisine and its stunning location right by the beautiful glistening sea. After you have eaten there are stunning scenery to enjoy on the promenade walk that can literally take you all the way to Camera de Lobos, hope... More

Good spot for people watching with plenty of outdoor and indoor seats. We had a tasty bruchetta to start and a pizza each. Fast service, friendly staff and pretty good food. Our waiter noticed we had a wobbly table and fixed it without us asking. Overall I would happily return again and would recommend

We had walked past this Italian Restaurant many times and this time we were very pleased we stopped on the off chance they had a table. The service was efficient and very polite. The food was just as it should be - good quality and beautifully presented. We were sitting outside but the staff created a warm and friendly atmosphere... More

Lovely Italian place, not overlooked, by the seafront. We had a very pleasant table outside the restaurant. I ordered lasagne which was tasty and not too filling. My three companions all enjoyed their choices and our only complaint was the surliness of the waiter. Not really an issue and had time permitted we would have returned for another meal.

Great Italian restaurant with a good selection of dishes, pastas, pizzas etc. and tempting sweets, there is good quality wine on offer too. Service is not to formal. Best of all, it is a great place to linger over coffee and watch the world go by.
