We were staying in Pestana Viking, nearby, and we were attracted here by the neat look from the road. We weren't disappointed. We noticed there were a few regular customers,which is nice.
We had to wait for a table and they had a nice waiting area where we could wait while choosing what to have.
My 2 year old son was with us, tired after a long day and a bit cranky, and all the waiters were very nice, always saying something to him everytime they passed by, and distracting him from the wait.
We had pizzas and pasta and everyone enjoyed what they were having. The red sangria was also very good.
Too bad we were so full we couldn't try their deserts... Maybe next time!

We have been here a couple of times on our stay in the Algarve. If you like nice food Italian style cooked then this is the place for you. Quality, fresh food presented very nicely. You have a nice view over the swimming pool .

We visit porches every year and we always go back to this lovely restaurant. A true gem in the area of the algarve. The staff are super friendly, the food is excellent. Although once you've been a few times you feel the need for a specials board!! We spent two superb evenings there last week and both nights the restaurant was full, with terrific atmosphere. If you are visiting areias de porches at senhora da rocha then this is a must! Enjoy. We will be back!

We visited the restaurant in the evening and found it to be very busy. The service was good however the food not to our liking. The pasta was gluey, the sauce did not appear to have the tomato in it as described in the menu.
