“Romantic Evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

We picked this restaurant as is it was in the DK Lisbon guide book and we wanted an Italian in or near Bairro Alto. The taxi couldn't drop us at the front door but we were able to spot the sign soon enough after a short walk. Extremely friendly waiter, lovely decor and ambience. We were given breads, dips and olives straightaway. Nice touch but later realised we were billed for them but maybe that is normal here. Ordered clans and minestrone soup (more like vegetable but I think this the traditional way). Both beautiful. Next I had the penne arribata-really tasty and spicy. The dessert was absolutely delicious. It was a frozen ice cream pie with melted chocolate!! Would recommend. Washed down with a nice bottle of white recommended by the waiter. Bread/Olives, 2 starters, 2 mains, 1 dessert, 2 irish coffees and a bottle of wine was 70 euro. We were the last to leave and would definitely return. Some good traditional bars around the corner as this is the spot for night life. Found a cosy bar (can't remember the name) but the staff were drinking on duty and appeared to be on drugs-kept giving us drink and forgetting to charge us!! a great night :)

“Really good Italian restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

Authentic Italian food with great ambience. The waiters were very helpful and suggested different things when we both chose lasagne. The food was excellent and we would have gone there again if we had been staying longer.

“Don't be scared by the looks of the place :)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Have to admit I wasn't to excited by this place when I saw the pictures of the premises, but never ind; the food is wonderful if you like italian cuisine, and the service is great. Would have appreciated an english menu though....

“Fantastic italian food in the heart of Lisbon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

One of the few true italian restaurants in Lisbon. The menu is excellent as are the service and wine list. Beware though of the owner. She is a true italian and there are certain changes to the dishes she won't allow. So prepare yourself not only for great food but also a good time.
