Excellent pizza!

We selected this restaurant based on TripAdvisor reviews but I confess I felt a bit put off as the overall impression of the restaurant was low key. But what do I know? The service was good and the pizza was excellent, and over the evening I could tell there were a lot of regulars.

the pizzas are thin and very rich and gourmet. I recommend the half pizza & half salad option... the special sauce on the salad is to die and ask for more!! Highly recommend this place... in fact... going to have dinner there again tonight!!

If we want to just enjoy a pasta dish, or their beef tenderloins or other daily specials, our favourite is still the Casa Italia.....their dishes are just excellent which, together with their enjoyable house wine, constitute a lovely meal at a very reasonable price & great service from guys who have been working there since we first started going ten...

We visit this restaurant at least twice or thrice when we are in Funchal. The standard of food is four star and the waiters are all very friendly and helpful. The salads are really fresh and the pizzas are the best around. Very competitive prices too. Will be back again next time we are in Madeira

Enjoyed this restaurant of an evening but they have amazingly priced lunchtime food. Certainly will visit again this New Year or in April. Good and attentive service. Probably wise to book for an evening meal.

New name on the restaurant: Trattoria al Dente. The fresh homemade pasta was cooked til perfection, the carbonara sauce light but creamy and rich. Good quality wine and coffee. We also visited for lunch and had the pizza- also deluscious! The prices are also very good and I would not have a problem paying a bit more for this qualury... More

I believe their are two Casa Italia pizzeria's but the one I am reviewing is on the Monumental Road opposite The Melia Hotel. It has changed it's name to Al Dente but still as the name Casa Italia on crockery. Anyway, the best pizza we have ever had and great value. We have dined there evening and lunchtime very recently...

We waited for ages to get a menu and then over an hour to get our food. When it came it was nothing special. My pizza was burnt on the base. My wife's pasta was OK but the salad with it was poor.
