We love this restaurant. It has been our neighborhood Portuguese restaurant for many years, so we go there for celebrations as well as ordinary dinners. The owner Paul is friendly and takes a personal interest in each of his customers, especially his regulars. The service is at a very nice pace, and the waiters are attentive. The food is delicious...

This place stacks up with all the others "down neck" Newark. The decor and atmosphere is excellent. The food is top notch. We had Paiella which was delicious and plentiful. The filet mignon is huge! Very tender and tasty. Cooked with mushrooms. Definately a place to return to!

Stumbled upon this restaurant one afternoon. There were locals at the bar and a small group at an nearby table. We ordered garlic shrimp, broccoli rabe, seafood in green sauce (mariscada), etc. It was all wonderful and in generous amounts. Bread and the traditional "chips" were good and plentiful as well. The service was excellent! Attentive but non-intrusive. Highly recommended!... More

This restaurant is close to the airport, so we decided to try it as we were staying the night by the airport for an early morning flight. I will go again on my next flight out of Newark. If it...
