Some very mixed reviews of this place but all I can say is we had a lovely lunch sitting in the sun with great views, served promptly by very nice staff. So overall we had a very pleasant experience.

The place is nice with view over the river. The calzone and pizza are ok but the pasta dishes arent fresh. I ate ravioli with pesto and it was really bad. Afterwards i got a bit nauseous so will definitly not be back and dont advice it. The service is average.

Italian....ish. The menu was Italian but you wouldn't get everything they served in Italy! A starter of oven baked provolone was just that: with no bread to dip in it and not obviously indicated on the menu for sharing. It was also possible to have pasta with a choice of sauce but it was not expected that the cannelloni was... More

This is an italian restaurant with a wonderful view in Parque das Nações. I recommend you to go on a sunny day for lunch or early dinner, so you can enjoy the sunset. Very good price. Try the red fruits sangria.

The starters where lovely, the main however was disgusting ! Prawn spaghetti was awful, the prawns where rock hard and spaghetti under cooked. For goodness sake save your money!

If you are looking for a great place to sit in the sun and enjoy a crepes and or ice cream, have a chat with Juana and she will make up a great dish for you. Much better than any of the places we found in the shopping centre at Oriente.

We have been to this restaurant for lunch as many times as we have holidayed in Lisbon, eg 4 times and it has always been enjoyable. We arrived soon after noon and ordered what we always have, pizza and salad and today it was just as good as previous times. However, the amount of people who arrived after us was... More

As the title suggests, I had the spaghetti bolognese, nothing to write home about very average. Didn't appreciate people smoking around me, but a nice view.

La Rúcula is basically a restaurant with regular terracota hoven cooked pizzas. It's a slightly overpriced, but not surprising experience.

Staying in Parque das Nacoes

Neighborhood Profile
Parque das Nacoes
This neighborhood was built up at the end of the 1990s mostly because of the Expo '98. The pavilions and structures that once were the home of all the Expo's attractions and exhibits are still culturally and artistically significant. In Parque das Nações you'll explore conference and concert pavilions, a shopping center, trendy restaurants and an enjoyable cable car ride you can't miss out on. On top of this, the amazing Lisbon Oceanarium (one of the most spectacular things you'll ever see in the city) will take your breath away: its respect and will to preserve natural wildlife is uncanny. Easily accessible by metro, bus or taxi from the city center, Parque das Nações is highly recommended for anyone who'll spend more than 3 days in the Portuguese capital.
