Description: "In the pretty whitewashed town of Almancil is Nelitos, a restaurant/bar serving a fusion of Italian and Portuguese cuisine providing a welcome change from the British pubs of the brasher Algarve resorts and a refreshing alternative to just grilled food. The terracotta tiled floor and clean, terracotta walls speak of the Tuscan countryside while the tables and chairs are so traditionally Italian, much like the warmness of the welcome, that you could almost expect to walk out on to a Roman piazza rather than in to a balmy Almancil night. A traditional Italian menu is just what you might expect and beautifully presented fresh Italian flavours are exactly what you get, fused in some dishes with the traditional flavours of Portugal. From pasta favourites to light and lovely fish dishes and Mediterranean influenced meat dishes everyone will be left sated but somehow wanting more. For those who prefer lighter bites the petiscos in the bar area offer a great alternative. Children are always welcomed in true Italian style with their own menu. With lunches being served from September, Nelitos definitely offers something for everyone "

Really enjoyed our evening, waiter was English. Bit pricy but food was really nice. Will almost certainly go again.

We were told about this restaurant by friends but as it is a little off the main routes we didnt get here until our last evening. The restaurant was very quiet we sat in their nice courtyard and had plenty of attention from the friendly staff. Very good meal from start to finish with a really good apple pie as my favourite dish. Sea bass and turbot both excellent and delicious goats cheese and mushroom starters. Visit this restaurant if you are in the area.

Visited this restaurant twice during our holiday. The first visit was faultless, but the second visit two of our main courses (we were a party of 6) were served to the wrong person - they were taken away but we had a long wait as all dishes are freshly cooked.Everyone else had finished when ours arrived, I expected a slight reduction on the bill as it wasn't our mix up - not a cent. It was my mums treat so I didn't want to make a fuss.It is reasonably pricey- (Average €35 per head two course soft drinks one bottle of wine)

What a wonderful restaurant...... always a delight to visit! This time was no exception.....The owners and staff made us feel so welcome, and our meals were faultless. We look forward to our visits and have never been disappointed. The garden setting is idyllic, and the menu is a joy...... we can't wait to return! I highly recommend the scallops.... DELICIOUS! Thank you for making our visits so special.

The food was delicious, the service was without fault, and the wine complimented the dishes we ordered perfectly. Our daughter was catered for, and welcomed with a pasta dish, that was made up especially for her. I will definately be returning and highly recommend.
