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

Great place when you are already getting sick of eating sardines and cod fish around the country. Great pasta. Lasagna and spagetti delicious. Cheap and good wines. Lovely.

Nothing simple for us - we went the whole 9 yards - most expensive dish a selection of the very best of Italian outside Italy. Get there fairly early and the service is second to none, food superb, great wine menu - a birthday to remember. Parking just down from the restaurant means that you get a lovely walk through...

The view is amazing, the restaurant is on the side of the river. It is a good nd nice place to go with friends, family or boyfriend. The food is a little bit expensive, more less 16€ per person. The big pitcher with sangria for 4 people it means only 1,5 glasses.

Location couldn't be better and the pasta was very good. It was nice to sip sangria out by the water. There is indoor seating if it is too cold or hot to be outside as well. This place gets very busy!

We popped in for lunch and left with very mixed feelings. My partner ordered a tagliatelle with prawns and mushrooms in cream sauce. The portion was a good size and it was well cooked and tasty. On the other hand, my lasagna was very disappointing, consisting of 3 sheets of pasta with a loose, non-descript sauce. There was so little... More

It's a nice place for pizza near the river. Not excellent and not bad. Good for an afternoon lunch. The view is great.
