The food was incredible here. Perhaps one of the best on the island. Very tasty home-made Italian cuisine with a flair of Portuguese influence. Make sure you book a reservation ahead of time

If you're into Italian hand-made pasta, this is the place to go. Nice setting with a view over Faial and Pico mountain. Friendly waiters, good food, good wine. Be sure to make a reservation.

In our 4 night trip we ate here twice for breakfast and 3 nights for dinner. It’s top for a reason. Highly recommend the pasta, desert Amaretto and Federica’s tips on wine.
