After a short stroll on Gaia we were looking for an italian place to eat and found this place overlooking the river. It has 2 floors, the second one is your best bet, it has beatiful views over the river and looking to Oporto. The service is good. The food was great, everyone asked for a different option and all were happy with it. I asked for a pizza, was tasty and crunchy, just how I like it. The desserts were great too, I tried "Il padrino" (chocolate brownie, icecream) and it was really good.

A table for 10 with 4 children under the ages of 5 was managed with no problem at this place. This 2 story restaurant had great food, great service, and amazing views. I usually stay far away from restaurants which have a "Pizza Hut" neighbor but this place was surprisingly good! The bolognese sauce was fresh and full of beef and vegges, the raviolis were fresh-made and the marinara sauce was REALLY good. I would recommend this place and go back again!

I was on this restaurant with some friends, locals and foreigners (french, germans and chinese!).
Italian food is the best option when it comes to accomodating so many different tastes from people from such different cultures.
This place has the best Italian AUTHENTIC thin crust pizza you can get in Porto! And I've tried a lot of places! A shame they only do thin crust, cause I am also a big fan of the Napolitana style! They have lots of other italian dishes (their black pasta is also quite good), but me I prefer a good pizza anytime! :)
Highly recommend their "Sangria" too! :) We paid 17 eur per person on this dinner, so it's really affordable for the delicious and good quality food!
Oh and be ready to get blown away by the view! Porto at it's best! Specially at night, highly recommend you take your camera!
