Love this place! we went there twice and both visits were great. Lovely food. The fish carpaccio, fried shrimp, hot plate diner and the tuna is great. But the ceviche is just phenomenal! Great professional and friendly staff. Love it! It doesn't have a terras, but a smoking area with semi-open roof.

Ate there whilst on holiday and food and service were both excellent. Fish was totally fresh and tasty and staff could not of been more friendly and caring. Chocolate soufflé to finish was divine! Lovely Portuguese wine to wash it all down. Would highly recommend.

Spotlessly clean - you could eat in the toilets -... More

A great restaurant with even a free taxi service to/from some hotels. When I arrived at 7pm I was alone. Staff was very friendly and besides Italian English was very well understood. Most of the guests started coming in around 8-8.30pm. It changes the atmosphere for the better (but hey that's in all restaurants). Had some excellent and fresh starter... More

In the centre of Sal Rei. We decided to try this place as had read various reports. When we arrived we were the only customers. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

You need to book ahead for this very atmospheric Italian restaurant in Sal Rei but it's definitely worth it. Food and wine are fabulous.
