Place is beautiful and the food is awesome. We are locals. We live in the street and usually we have pizza and salad. Very nice service. Recommended.

This small restaurant provides exemplary service and superb simple food. We had the Brusceta for starters (1 portion was enough for 2) followed by mushroom risotto which was delightful. Great service and great food and great value for money.

We went in without a reservation, urban atmosphere, happy atmosphere and the food was tasty and was served fast. Price was normal to the city center. We enjoyed our meal

We were looking at menus along the street and happened upon this little gem. The food was so good. It was nice to have a change from Portuguese food tonight. The restaurant serves food in the style of Italy. The food was delicious, service superb...and all of the desserts are homemade. Excellent!More

Finding a place which serves decent vegetarian options, has great service and laid back ambience, assisted by a great music choice can be tricky! Esperanca did all of this. It is not specifically a veggie place but we still visited three times during a week...long holiday. Recommended.More

We had dinner here yesterday. We went to Romania but that place was full and the waitress was insanely rude. So we found this one. Such a nice and pleasant staff. They really do everything to make your time their the best. The food was...also super tasty!More

Had dinner in this place a few years back and it was delicious; currently unfriendly and under pressure waitresses managing the dining room, food was average but the most weird thing was my dessert, a FROZEN lemon pie; when I told the waitress about this,...the answer was that I had to wait until it goes defrost !!! Do not recommendMore

If you're looking for authentic Italian food, look elsewhere. Spaghetti aglio, olio e peperoncino had thickly sliced burnt garlic in it. Noodles where overcooked. Other dishes might be OK but burnt garlic is an absolute no-go and every Italian knows this.

Located behind the Lisbon Cathedral on a quite street. Italian cuisine. The Gaspacho was tasty as was my good size black risotto albeit the cuttlefish was too tough for my liking. The Tiramisu was in cake form, a good size portion with a hint of...alcohol mixed with the cocoa. Our daughter gorged on the risotto which made for an even more pleasant expirience.More
