Much as we like Portugese cuisine, after 2 weeks in the Azores, you just needed a change....something about all that salt, oil and garlic. However, finding good alternate cuisine on the Azores is no small feat. We had passed this small unassuming Italian restaurant while walking to our hotel and thought we'd give it a try. Away somewhat from the downtown Angra core, not much to look at, but the food and service more than made up for it. We four had a couple of excellent pizzas, a super seafood pasta full of jumbo shrimp, and a filet mignon to die for....simply the best beef we had anywhere in the Azores, all at very reasonable prices. As usual, we had a great vinho verde, but then our waiter convinced us to try a white from Pico....which took some doing given an earlier experience with a Pico red, but since he promised that we would not be charged if we didn't like it, what did we have to lose? Good move...it was delicious. And the friendly service from our waiter was the perfect complement. Fluent in English, mom was in the kitchen, and dad (after whom the place is named) was off cooking in Toronto. It is a family affair and a delight.
