Visited Thursday 25th August Managed to get an outside table on the front which was good. Food was usual good quality although the service was very quick. Good value for money with nice atmosphere. Worth the money.

We enjoyed our meal in Medici & the comfortable seating. The food was good however didn't cater for kids & there were no specials to choose from unlike it's competitors. The staff appeared very busy & somewhat hassled therefore didn't come across as particularly welcoming therefore I have scored lower than I would have liked on this basis. It's all... More

Pizza where over cooked and extremely greasy. Toppings were okay but had left us feeling sickly the next day due to so much oil. Myself and sister had the penne el salmone which is my absolute favourite dish. There was hardly any salmon in it at all however sauce was half decent. If your looking a nice Italian restaurant around... More

The bruschetta to start with tasted amazing and I had the prawn spaghetti for my mains, unfortunately there was something wrong with this as my tummy didn't have a great time ... I asked twice in Portuguese if the prawns were fresh and was told they were ... Quite disappointed as it is not something you want to deal with... More

We had a beautiful date night meal at this restaurant. It was a cold spring day and the fire was lit, which was just perfect during our meal. House was full yet service was on point and we especially recommend their mushroom and bruschetta appetizers.

What a lovely experience. Having stayed in Silves (nothing going on!) we travelled by car to Carviero and stumbled on this gem. It really is Piccolinos in the sunshine. The restaurant was really busy and we hadn't booked but the staff did their upmost to find us a lovely table. We throughly enjoyed the food, wine and atmosphere. Definitely worth... More

First impressions were great. Friendly staff apart from one who looked at us and maybe felt we were not the clients that he wanted in 'his' restauraunt. He seemed very arrogant and less than helpful. We ordered drinks and they duly arrived with the waiter tipping the entire contents of the tray over my 3 year old. No apology and... More

Loved it. The staff were great and the food was tops. Think the waiter was called Claudio, anyway he was really good. I had steak, kids had pizza and lasagna, Mrs had fish. Can't fault the experience and will return. Yes it gets busy but that's because it's good. Very impressive layout. Full marks!!

The service here is very good, the food tasty with a wide selection on the menu. I've had better Italian food and nothing was exceedingly memorable but a nice meal all the same and the atmosphere and service were good. Reasonably priced.

Thank Charlotte B
