Pulcini is en excelent italian restaurant in Leca da Palmeira (Porto). The Pulcini family run this restaurant with great passion creating an unforgettable friendly atmosphere. The selection of dishes comes mainly from the traditional Roman cusine with great variaty of pastas and other typical italian recipes. Special mentions go also to the delicious Tiramisú dessert. A trully italian dining experience in Porto.

The restaurant isn't situated in the centre, but the food and service is really worth the trip!!
Real italian owners, cosy atmosphere and most importantly truly excellent food. It was by far the best restaurant we went to during our 5-day trip to Porto. The pasta I had wasn't even on the menu, the waiter made a few suggestions and it was truly delicious!! On top of that their tiramisu is heavenly.

It was the wind time we went to the restaurant and the quality just keeps spectacular. Great pasta, a lovely lasagna and the best tiramisu ever. It is made by the owners "mama" and is a piece of heaven.
The ambiance is nice, the service friendly and cosy.

Just next to my home door we find this cozy, traditional, family runned, excellent Roman cuisine small restaurante. It ios run by an original Roman familiy that recently moved to Porto. Father and son are doctors and father and mother excellent cooks. They have the most superb real italian pastas, ossobuco, parmiggianas, salads, etc and lately also a few pizzas... Very good service, good ambiance, smooth and inteligent design, seethrough window for the kitchen, and very attentious and nice, sympathetic family. It is a place you will return for sure. The price is right and it's worth a visit when you are in Porto or around Leça da Palmeira.

We ate at this restaurant 3 days in a row. The pasta's are fresh. The people are wonderfull, extremly friendly. The waitress told us about the tiramisu that 'mama' made with banana and Nutella. The first night we were there, they didn't have it. We asked if she could make it the next day. We came in the next night and she made the tiramisu with banana and Nutella. The best tiramisu i have ever tasted. If you are in Porto or near Porto, go there! They are real Italians with fresh pasta's made by 'papa'. Best restaurant we went to during our tour of Portugal
