Beautiful setting, friendly staff and wonderful food. My kids got through an adult portion of carbonara which was delicious. Pizzas are lovely and a great selection of meat and seafood.

This was the most wonderful place to take dinner with family and friends we have experienced in our 12 days trip to Portugal (Lisboa-Algarve). Special thanks to Mr. Dino, restaurant chief, who took special care of us. A great reason to come back soon. Obrigado/Mulțumesc! Adrian & Lala România.

starters and mains were excellent but some of the desserts were really not so good in particularly the lemon meringue pie and the zambagolie the most expensive on the menu, were very poor. Again on the plus side house wine was good, sit outside for a perfect dining experience

After a number of days travelling in Spain and Portugal, I was craving some good Italian food.Had a fantastic dinner here one night of our three in Porches. The wait staff is very attentive and helpful, especially in selecting fantastic and reasonably priced Portugese white wines to pair with our meals. It is easy to tell from the complimentary Bruschetta... More

We stayed at the adjoining Hotel Pestana Viking 3 nights. At this time, we ate dinner here twice. Why? This elegant Italian restaurant on a cliff above the beautiful beach. Everything is fresh, the waitress advised us to Helena lovely selection of dishes, proposed a fine wine Winha dos Santos from the Douro region, fine red wine with a subtle... More

Stay at large if you r after a good Italian pizza. Pizza oh my god. Nothing worse than a "frozen style" pizza base topped up with fresh ingredients. Limited choice among pizzas of a very little itslian insight. Very expensive as well. Service very good though. Unable to comment on the rest of the menu as pizzas were a reason... More

Staying nearby at the Pestana Viking, we decided to give it ago. We were the first ones in that night and given a large table as we had our baby grandaughter with us. The staff were pleasant and attentive from the time we arrived until we left. The food was excellent. Prices for some courses were at the top end... More

OK, so perhaps an Italian is not what you are expecting to eat in Portugal. But with local cuisine limited in this area we have it a go. Ended up being the best Italian we have eaten in some time. Staff were great, everything was homemade and fresh and location is good too. Well worth a visit if you are... More

Like a dream, candle light, charm, amazing pool view, full moon and the relaxing sea waves sound, all together with an amazing genuine Italian pasta. Also loved the Portuguese wine and the panna cotta ;). Ps: accepts Lyoness cashback card.

The terrace part of the restaurant is set in a half moon around a swimming pool - nice views and ambience. Table service excellent - food superb and good wine choices. Use this for that 'special evening' as a little more expensive.
