“Eat with the locals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2012

This Italian restaurant is very popular with the locals who like us go out for a pizza or pasta. The prego poco con bolo is a meal in itself for @£3.50 and the steak on a stone is also a favourite. It is a lovely location in the heart of the old town, has very friendly service and is altogether a perfect lunch time stop.

“Not particularly good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2012

Placed in the old part of Funchal, we noticed that this place had some good reviews on Tripadvisor. We had a lassagne and a pizza, and thought that both where ok, but not anything special at all. I would not go out of my way to eat here - especially not, when there are so many better alternatives.

“A treasure in the Old Town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2012

Pizza is its signature dish, but Xarambinha has much more besides. The wide menu offers a lot, from traditional espada to the best 'steak on a stone' ever. For cleanliness, friendly service, and value for money, this restaurant is impossible to beat.

“Not a real pizzaria”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2012

Staff is nice but the pizza's ingredients are most canned and aren't as fresh they should be, too much cheese for me, barely cooked... I was so hungry...

“Great little restaurant!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2012

Set back off the main street, with its touristy resaurants, in a little square is the Xarambinha restaurant. It serves good, simple food at very reasonable prices. The staff are very pleasant and friendly and there is a graet ambience about the place. Many tables outside but the interior is cosy and atmospheric. They also run a "take away" pizza business an we can highly reccomend their excellent pizzas - as well as the pasta dishes. Do come - you won't be disappointed!!.
