Delicious ice cream and crepes. We also had pizza and pasta. They were good too but can not ace the crepes and ice cream. Will go again to try different crepes.

The food is really tasty - the garlic bread was crunchy, our main dishes were all delicious. We tried the homemade ice creams and they are evenly, if you close your eyes when tasting the pistachio ice cream, you might think you are in italy!

The food is delicious, we had pizzas, but also the pastas looked very good. The ice cream is a dream. We also can recommend the white whine by the glass, very fruity and refreshing. Only the staff is quite slow. Unfortunately the restaurant was closed the second time we liked to eat there. We had lunch there, in the evening... More

This place is well worth the wait! We ended up going twice in our week long holiday! Recommended by locals, and a great suggestion! Pasta Nero was delicious, as was the carbonara! To finish off with delicious ice cream, the best in the area for sure! You can book, so if you don't want to miss out, would recommend booking!... More

The pizza was very nice and the staff are really nice too. Would go back there again. And would say that you would need to get there for about 7pm as it gets very busy after that time.

the restaurant has clearly been around a while and serves decent pizza in a wide range of choices with all the usuals and a few local curiosities thrown in for good measure. The welcoming service is prompt and friendly and they do make sure kids are taken care of. It's popular, busy and very warm inside and has an ice... More

A very nice Italian with home made pastas and pizza. On the down side the seats are very uncomfortable and we had to ask for ice for our water which came not chilled at all.

This restaurant goes like a fair as we would say. Busy all night long and when you taste the food you will know why. Service is fast and furious and food is served fresh and hot. Great atmosphere and don't forget to finish with their fantastic Ice Cream.

This is the best restaurant that we found in Praia De Rocha. The food is excellent, the service is prompt and there's a good buzz in the place. Go early (before 7pm) to avoid queueing.

Went to this restaurant after reading great reviews. Very disappointed. It gets very very busy here and the tables are packed in tightly. Wasn't a very relaxing experience as the queue of people is right next to where you are eating and the staff are racing about between the tables. The food itself was ok but nothing amazing. Could possibly... More
