Reviewed January 10, 2013

We had 3 wonderful meals at this restaurant and each time the food and service was fabulous. We loved it so much that after we found it we didn't go anywhere else!

“Great Italian”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Very much an unsung hero of Alvor. Al dente is extremely good. I have been here several times over three years and have never been disappointed. It is spotlessly clean and the staff are very friendly. I have had Pizza which is among the best I have tasted in Alvor. The pasta dishes are also excellent. |I can personally recommend the Macaroni al Forno with bacon. If in Alvor and if you like Italian food then go there.

“Excellent restaurant”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

When each course that is served up to you, looks great, tastes great, you know then and there, you made the right choice to eat out. It was perfect throughout the evening and the food, needless to say was true to it's name. I had pizza while my wife had some pasta and both tastes what a fine Italian should taste like. Our starters were garlic mushrooms and garlic bread and both were delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant. The staff are very friendly in particular the waiter who was very professional and sociable.

“Very good menu”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Italian menu with little differences, loved the fruity pizza and salad, not to every ones taste but a nice change for a vegetarian. Plenty of meat dishes for rest of party too. Went as part of a group of 10 and we all enjoyed our meals. House wine good and choice of red, white of sparkling sangria.
Good service although was a quiet Sunday late lunch.
Has a takeaway menu too
