“Great Italian restaurant”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

My wife and I went for a week to Vilamoura in Portugal and ended up eating here 3 times! We normally like to try different places but the food was so nice.

I don't normally go for steak but had a steak each time with different sauces and all were beautiful. My wife's meals were also very tasty.

A bottle of house white, two starters and two mains were around €50. The restaurant is behind the Atlantic bar just off the marina. Highly recommended.

My friend and I have been going to Bocca Della Verita for a few years. We love the food and also the fact that we are warmly greeted on arrival.

“Shame about the boss”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

A large group of us ate here as we like to try as many different places as possible.
We negotiated free glass of wine each which most places offer.
The food and service were very good but we all noticed how the 2 waitresses looked terrified of the man in charge. (presumably the owner/manager) He made no effort to interact with any customers or even smile at anyone.
Therefore I would not recommend this restaurant.

thanks for your review Mrs Anne Lesley Im really surprised by the way you go about this review for starters You obvious miss read the all affair no employee of my is terrified of working for me most of my staff as been with me for years some of them since June 2000 wend all started but besides this you did start the review of the restaurant with true facts we took your booking with all your request which usually we don't accept but because you been before as a couple I made that especial exception to you and your friends you add near 10 bottles of house wine because my glasses are very large 3 glasses per bottle for free in a group of 30 plus you add hot bread to deep on olive oil and balsamic for every body and marinated olives for free for everybody you only add one main course per person most of it pastas and pizzas and the odd chicken dish your average spending was 11€ per person plus you requested us to make separated bill for every couple on the table I know you not aware how difficult its to make Shure there is no mistakes and all my staff needed to know with precision who got who in a long table whit 15 separated bills this we never do because it ties up all my staff and never gets good results plus I need them to serve the other 60 costumers in the restaurant at the same time as you normally I offer a glass of wine wend the costumer as starter and main course and we never go about separate big tables because the bill is itemised so groups work out their on expenses and we continuum service to other costumers most restaurants who have a certain size do the same to finalize I never interact whit costumers only on very rare exceptional times wend I m requested by a costumer for information or wine advice my job is behind the bar next to the kitchen to make Shure the restaurant performs well so you can have a nice meal on real time after service finish many times me And my staff will go out for a drink and it as been for 13 years my staff their opinion about me you will be surprised with the answer any way I m sorry that you add that wrong impression about me

“Good”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

Stopped here for a quick pizza after a long day. Menu is varied with many fish, meat, pizza & pasta options. Nice outdoor seating area & prompt service. Pizzas were slightly small with a weird scalloped edge! Average in taste but the fried potatoes were good.
