I was recommended to visit Camillos by a friend and I have to say that it was outstanding. The food and wine were delicious... Good quality ingredients, cooked and presented impeccably . The staff were great, helpful and friendly and spoke great English. But what really made Camillos was camillo himself, who was vivacious, friendly and wonderfully warm. He makes... More

From the moment you arrive there is no doubt that this is Camillo's restaurant. We were greeted like long lost friends. It might not be the most scenic of dining areas, on a back street in the heart of Almancil, but it works well. The cover consists of garlic bread and gorgeous bruscheta. Camillo has commissioned his own red wine... More

We decided to eat here after reading reviews, it didn't disappoint. We were the only people there as it was early and the staff, including the owner, were very freindly and welcoming. The pasta was light and delicious. They remade my daughters pizza as they made it with spicy pepperoni instead of salami as she had asked. Nothing was too... More

Have you tried the pizza's? - the best is the spicy prawn and pepperoni! :-) We love our visit to this Italian restaurant when we visit Portugal as it's friendly and fun environment makes us have a wonderful and relaxing evening out. You must try it if you are in the area!

Very good Italian food in the algarve. Warm welcome and very attentive staff. My two children loved it. The only disappointment was the choice of deserts particularly the tiramisu which was bland. homemade ice cream was good. Would recommend and hope to return one day ( but not for tiramisu).

Yet another great evening at Camillo's. We keep coming back, several times a year on our trips to Portugal. This is authentic Italian cuisine, if only because the charming owner is genuinely Italian. Vastly more interesting and tasty food than the bog-standard chicken shacks people always visit when looking for something affordable. You'll only spend a little bit more that... More

Our family has been going here for years. Camillo is always there to greet us. Food is simple Italian - always reliable and at an affordable price-better value than most family restaurants in the area. Looking forward to returning on our next trip here

Home made pasta, a good selection of specials and great value. Camillo's is very kiddy friendly. Make an effort to locate this gem of a restaurant, I am sure you will not be disappointed. Camillo is charming to everyone and makes the children feel extra special. Try Camillo's if you can, it is, quite simply, delightful.

If you want simple very good quality food , this is your place. It's not five star , the location and setting are not glitzy, however the food , pasta , pizza etc are all good and unusually for the area this is very good value for money.
