The atmosphere especially with the fire and staff were superb, we found this restaurant on our last night and were not disappointed, this is the best Italian we have been to.

Can I start this review by commenting on the staff. They are very efficient, perhaps a little too efficient to the point of being seen by some, as officious. The exception is the head waitress. Contrary to some of the reviews below, I can confirm she is a credit to the restaurant and gets the right balance between being efficient,... More

We ate here on our holiday to Hotel Viking which is a Pestana hotel 5 mins walk from the restaurant. The food was fantastic at a great price and the staff were excellent. The restaurant also has a beautiful picturesque view. We will definitely be back!

We visited this restaurant last week. When we arrived we were 'greeted' by the manager? (I think) she didn't really smile and reminded me of a school head mistress. Were we offered bruschetta to start with and felt awkward saying no so agreed to this- of course we were changed which I find quite naughty seen as we didn't ask... More

very nice food and service with gorgeous view overlooking the sea. The food was lovely, a little more expensive than othe local restaurants but worth it for a holiday treat.

Belmondo, after all these years, continues to be my favorite restaurant in Portugal to eat italian food. The pasta's and the pizza's are delicious with the true italian flavour! The wine list has a lot of different wines with a lot of exclusive wines. The belmondo's pannacota is way better than a lot of pannacottas that I ate in italy!!... More

Food was good but service was a little hostile. Also the setting was slightly odd with a pool and sunloungers right next to where you eat. Thankfully not many people still there when we arrived. Walkable from Vila Vita. Not overly inspiring....

terrible place me and my boyfriend came in one night for a few cocktails and were made to feel unwanted and out of place. we got seated around the pool area near the exit and the staff ignored us to the point we left the restaurant. They think its a posh place when really they should be a 2 star... More
