We have searched for a true italian restaurant within the algarve for some time now as within a two week break or longer you do require a change from the wonderful portugese food and we fell on this restaurant by chance as we were buying wine from the Wine Shop (on the same road) a fab shop by the way! when we were introduced to the owner of Grissino restaurant and what a lovely man with his italian charm he was, we had espresso in his restaurant during the day and looked over the menu and told him we would return tomorrow we did not book a time but as he promised us a table we turned up at 9pm the following evening and he had reserved us a table it was very busy with every table taken and from the moment we sat down the food was exquisite, tasty, fresh and true italian with an italian owner, his son in the kitchen and wife front of house we thought we were back in Rome! just a charming small restaurant with lots of character and fabulous wine selection, we told him we loved antonori wines which he had a bottle in his collection just brilliant. We were so full as we had not only 3 courses but gifts from the chef also we literally could not move at the end of it but we visit the algarve at least 5 times a year and we will definetly be back, a lovely evening with great food and wine and service which was just 5 star.
