This a small place in the narrow side street but their pizzas are really very good. Thin and of great variety of choices. The gazpacho is very different from what it is in Spain. We did like it at all. The rest of food was great

It is a bit out of the way but not impossible to find. We sat at a table in the street it was OK but not startling. I had a Margarita Pizza it had a LOT of cheese on, too much for me though, but if you like a very cheesy Pizza you will love these! Mr S had canneloni... More

Little back street independent trattoria away from the crowds serving pizza and pasta dishes. All had pizzas and they were well above average with abundant toppings. Good choice of wines, the recommended red being excellent value. Friendly, fast service without the fast food feel.

Located in a narrow side street, La Pizza is well signposted and you have the option to sit outside in the well-lit street or inside either downstairs or upstairs. We chose to sit outside which was very pleasant however the 'cheap' tables and chairs were not ideal on the cobbled surface. Service was attentive but not the quickest we have... More

This restaurant is sweet. The decor is very old but the cook preparing food in front of you is endearing. The food was wonderful. I had a delicious spaghetti bolognese and my boyfriend had a pizza. We had a tasty bottle of red wine and it was nice to be able to see the collection of wines before choosing. We... More

Lovely little restaurant. Great food and service. Pizza had tad much cheese, but was great anyway. Flambéed bananas were amazing.

Found this almost by chance and tried it out with a random Canadian guy who was staying in the same hostel. Having just eaten seafood for 3 days straight I was gagging for a pizza and was not disappointed. Speaking as someone who makes their own pizza at home and who worked in a pizzeria in Italy in his youth...... More

Stopped by La Pizza for a spot of lunch. Staff were very friendly and the food lovely. I had a anchovy omelette and salad. Menu is varied, usual lunch fare. Staff make you feel welcome. Would use again when in Faro

We were in the mood for pizza, but didn't want to settle for takeout pizza. After a search of Tripadvisor for top rated pizza in Faro, we decided to try La Pizza. Although the restaurant is hard to find, it was worth the trip. (It's 2 alleyways north of the McDonalds on Avenida da Republica, located halfway down a one-way... More
