The food and service were great. Nando has an eclectic charm. Indoors or out, this is a great place for lunch for dinner.

Firstly and most importantly if you came across Nando looking for peri-peri chicken, take-away fries and unlimited refills then you've confused this place with the South African/UK Portuguese-themed haunt of Sunday-league footballers and families you'll be disappointed! We came across Nando quite by chance in the Italian gastro-desert of post-lunch and pre-dinner. We were welcomed inside and shown a mouth-watering... More

The restaurant offers a fabulous decor of brocante and vintage-style stuff, which gives the place a special character. We ate in the veranda/garden of the restaurant, which is also a cosy place to have dinner. The restaurant offers a limited menu of pretty special, but excellent dishes. The portions however are ridiculously small. Perfect if you have already eaten too... More

Superb food, attentive and helpful staff, good atmosphere especially in the garden area. Higher end cooking and smaller portions which was welcome!

One of the best meals I have ever had the privilege to eat. Everything melted in one's mouth. The cave was amazing and the staff were fantastic. Do not miss the opportunity to dine here. The Chef has been here for 37 years. All local produce with an extra ingredient - love.

Fabulous quirky decor and very comfortable well-spaced tables. Charming service from young enthusiastic and professional staff. Simply delicious cuisine. Pleasingly short menu, fresh ingredients, stunning results! Recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys good food. We loved it.

We arrived late - around 11pm - and was told that the chef already went home. The girls in the restaurant called him and he came back within few minutes and cooked the most wonderful dinner for us. Great cozy atmosphere, lots of funny antique things to look at and a real authentic backyard/garden terrace. Top recommendations from us !

Friendly staff, great decoration and bad food. The deep fried fish, as appetizers, had too much oil, worst than every fast food, and had no taste at all. The main dish, a "pata negra", was overcooked and the sweet and sour sauce wasn't sweet at all. It was disappointing, Great local wine, though.

I came here with a friend after reading the comments and after eating here I can only agree with the other reviewers. What makes this special, besides the food being cooked to order is that the chef puts his own spin on traditional Italian food. The decor is a little eclectic but that makes it all the more enjoyable. For... More

Look if you are after a simple pizza, or home cooked simple food, then maybe this is not the place for you. That said, if you want to try some excellent combinations well thought through by a real chef who cares about both quality of raw materials and can them turn them into something really special, then this is the...
