“Not the best”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

Was very disappointed by the food.
I was expecting more Italian authenticity.
It was lacking the ingredients that would have made it perfect.

“Dissappointed”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

The tout was very pushy and in the end we went in after he grabbed my 9 year old daughters hand to take her in the restaurant. The pizza wasn't the best, I had the La barca pizza and the prawns were mushy. I could of got a better pizza in tesco's.

My wife had a Lasagne and she was half way through it when the waiter came and took it from her before she had finished.

It was the worse restaurant we had food in during our stay. Top dollar for very little food. Avoid at all costs.

“The Best!”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

I cannot believe that I have been visiting Albuferia for 7 years and have missed this restaurant until now!! It was the front of house gentleman Prajwal (Brilliant at his job) that made us think that we should try the freshly made pastas and cooked to your liking Steaks... My Husband and I had two large beers to start with, served in frozen glasses, WOW. 1 starter to share Garlic bread with cheese, it was so delicious, My husband choose a house special pizza which was amazing with so much meat he was under pressure to finish, I had a Carbonara with chicken, it was a huge portion and the best I have ever tasted, we shared a dessert of fruit of the forest panacotta with warm berries, which was heavenly and the total cost was €36 which is unbelievable!!..... All I can say about this restaurant is... Please do not dismiss or miss it,.As it is The Best Restaurant in The Old Town Albuferia
