Very busy restaurant, and probably the best situated in the Old Town, next to a fantastic African TulipTree (Spathodea campanulata). Food was excellent and I would recommend the Cannelloni Xarambina. The staff were fantastic and unfailingly pleasant, though I have no idea how they manage to serve so many people so quickly, with so little fuss. Wonderful!

We ate here three nights during our two week stay in Funchal old town. This place is always busy. The service is great and the prices great. Two course meal for two with bottle of wine under €40.

Definitely a place to forget. I ordered one pizza and came another. I asked for drinks and sauces for my pizza and didn´t came at all. When other table with a foreign couple arrived the waiter stopped giving us attention and everything we asked for did not arrived to us anymore. The quality of pizza is really poor, you eat... More

If you want a quick pizza/pasta dish for not a lot of money then this is the deal place. There was no atmosphere at all when we went in as it was empty but we have eaten here before and knew what to expect. It started to fill up before we left. Food was average but overall excellent value for... More

The food wasn't bad. We had a pasta followed by ice creme for dessert. It was OK, certainly for the low prices. I suppose we caught the waitress on a bad day because she wasn't overly friendly. You won't be disappointed but there must be better italian style places in Funchal.

The young waiter is very friendly and helpful and the garlic bread we ate here was nice. However, almost as soon as we had eaten the starter our pizzas arrived, There were really thick and heavy, with lots of tinned veg rather than fresh. My daughter's prawn one was drowning in Marie Rose sauce. They were really disappointing pizzas and... More

Good dinner on a picturesque square in old town facing the little church. Good service. Nice house wine. Steak is the big thing here and comes served on a hot stone still cooking. Nice meal and I would definitely recommend the place

Enjoyed a nice bruschetta followed by excellent pizza with drinks for about 13 euros....great value for money. The restaurant is in a location near the old town about 10 minutes from the seafront. Service was fast and friendly. Restaurant does some really good special deals and is well worth checking out. Recommended.
