28 of us enjoyed a traditional Harvest Festival Sunday lunch at La Piazza and it was, as always amazing. Angelo makes everyone feel special and the waiting staff are brilliant. Nothing is too much trouble and everything served is just perfect. Thank you all at La Piazza for making our day memorable. Sandra and the group from St. Luke's

My annual trip to Portugal and this Restaurant was fantastic as usual. Lovely courtyard to sit in and the food, wine, service & entertainment was as usual fabulous. May I suggest you try the Sea Bass as it is absolutely delicious served with fresh peas. The rest of our party were equally impressed with their meals, we danced the night... More

We used this place last year as we were staying a couple of miles outside the town. We enjoyed it then, however, we were a little sceptical this year given some of the reviews below. My youngest child wanted to try it again so we booked an early table, 7.30. We found the service very good and wait times were... More

Enjoyable evening. We were a party of 9 including 2 and a half year old twins. The staff were helpful and accommodating, the food portions were adjusted for the children and overall the quality was good. The cost was approximately 25€ per head but that does include 1 bottle of house wine and lots of soft drinks for the youngsters.... More

Stumbled across this little hidden gem on the last night of our holiday. Annoyed that we didn't discover it sooner as it is amazing! Superb food and really friendly English speaking staff. Run by an Anglo-Italian couple, this place was very popular with the Brits. We had pizza and pasta with a great bottle of wine and all very reasonably... More

Where to begin?!?! This restaurant promotes itself as an authentic Italian restaurant, but couldn't be so far from the truth. I've been living in Italy for 2 years and my girlfriend is Italian. We decided to give the place a chance hesitating all the way there. Due to no option in the village and a recommendation from the owner of... More

We ate 4 times as only real place to eat in village. Food was ok but service slow. Sadly on last visit we were told to move tables as someone had reserved it. We had also made a reservation so I guess the other people's money is better? I asked the head waiter(?) why we had to move - he... More

We ate in this lovely restaurant with four children and my husbands parents. We had a lovely table in the corner of a raised courtyard. The kids had pizza and we had a variety of meals from the extensive menu. The food was excellent and the staff were really friendly and informative about the food, making helpful recommendations.
