“best food in funchal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

Welcoming staff, very polite and helpful - ate here about 5 times and every meal was superb, we tried the variety of different pasta dishes, pizza's steak on a stone and fish. We only ate twice elsewhere and then decided that the meals here were by far the best in quality, taste, presentation and at extremely value for money prices. The setting was also nice , out of the way in the little church square. Cannot recommend this place highly enough. so thank you xarambina.

“A regular banker!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

We've been a few times now and have never been disappointed. The 'steak on a stone' is very good and the pizzas too. The staff are friendly and the service excellent in a nice part of the town.

“A great place for a relaxing meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

Ate here more than once whilst in Funchal which says it all. If you want a no nonsense good meal ( pizza/pasta/ stone cooking) then this is worth a visit. Very pleasant staff and very reasonable price. Nobody trying to entice you in, just a warm and friendly ambience, quick service and a relaxing atmosphere.

“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.
