“Enjoyable italian food, but you can eat fusion also.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

It made a pleasant change to dine in the port area rather than in town. It is a bit more expensive, but still reasonable. The starters of roasted veg and tuna were very nice with Osso bucco and lasagna to follow. Very good service and nice ambiance.

“Relaxing Italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

Went here one night when feeling a bit rough. Had one of the plainer pasta dishes with some wine, then a pudding and came away feeling much better. Ate outside even though it was beginning to be a bit chilly and enjoyed the view back into Ponta Delgada. Would have eaten here again if the weather for the walk to and from had been a bit kinder.

“Italian haven”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Situated on the edge of the Marina next to the cruise ship terminal. Has "outside" seating if wished. Good choice of menu with very good portions - take an appetite! My wife had the butterfly pasta with crabmeat which was very tasty and I had a very enjoyable portion of lasagne, we then shared an excellent Tiramisu to finish! Good service.
