After eating mainly fish with potatoes for a week, we were very content with this Italian restaurant. The restaurant is situated in a public park with a view on the river and a fountain. We stayed in Coimbra for 2 nights and both nights we ate here. As a starter we had a mixed plate on day 1 with beef... More

Desserts also looked appealing but there was no room for it this time. Service trys to be fast (also a surprise... More

Very good restaurant for Italian food located near the Mondego river and inside the park Manuel Braga in the middle of Coimbra. Usually very busy but with nice service because they have a great staff. The food is very tasty and you can seat in a room looking for the river or outside in the park. If you like Italian... More

Located at the riverfront. When we passed this place I thought this would be a tourist trap but overall the experience was good. Meat was well prepared, salads ok, pizzas ok. And an attractive location.

We were served with great pasta, lasanha and a pizza, nice staff also! The best choice are the triple tasting, that will give you a great picking on the days offerings. Wood pizza oven as an extra for pizza lovers! Avoid the desserts, they unfortunately let down the entire experience, and careful on the price of the drinks! Not the... More

We loved this restaurant, one of the better ones of Coimbra. Nicely located alongside the river. I Would give 5 stars If the toilet wasn't so disgusting...

I was looking for a break from Portuguese food and found it here: a scenic setting out over the Mondego River; an extensive menu with all the traditional Italian favorites, and a competent, English-speaking waiter - everything I ordered (appetizer, pasta, wine, cheese) was good and the overall experience most satisfying

Good\reasonable food, nice views (river and garden), ideal for romantic dinner. Do not ask for Sangria, it wasnt on the menu and 25€ for it was really expensive (a good sangria BTW).

We visited Coimbra towards the end of our Portugal trip and as such, had had our share of Portuguese food. We went to Restaurante Italia after it was recommended to us and we had such a good meal we decided to go back the next day. We tried their pizza bianca, porcini risotto, arugula pizza, tiramisu... It was a true... More

First I like this restaurant and have been here some times. But in a couple of occasions the service was not very good, either bringing something we didn't order or forgetting. The food is good, although there is definitely better Italian food. Beef is usually overcooked whether in pasta or as a stake. But I recommend anyway for some of... More
