Description: Italia Restaurant, located in the centre of the piazza of Ferragudo, a pearl of the Algarve right in front of the Atlantic ocean. Our History The managers Enza and Raffaele have not been in Portugal for long but they have been successful restaurateurs for more than 25 years in Italy, and now they have undertaken the challenge of bringing the true Italian flavours to Portugal with enthusiasm and professionalism. The kitchen is formed of a completely Italian team, quite unique in Portugal, that give their best every day creating authentically traditional flavours with meat and fish, and of course pasta, spaghetti, penne, gnocchi, tagliatelle, ravioli etc., with a whole range of home-made egg pasta made with imported and accurately selected flours, cooked al dente according to the Italian tradition: a real, unique treat. And our tasty pizzas: more than 30 specialities made with 100% Italian flours, slow-rising and therefore highly digestible.

“Best Discovery this Year”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Found this Italian Restaurant through reviews on Trip Advisor. They have only been open off the main square in Ferragudo for three years, but somehow we missed it on our last long- stay in 2012. definitely our loss We really enjoy Portuguese meals, BUT for a perfect taste of Italy, outside of Italy, this is the place to go. Enza and her Chef husband are great. Milton served us with care without being intrusive. the ambience is warm and inviting and the hat collection interesting. We have plans to return several times over the next six weeks. Oh, yes,.......The FOOD......FANTASTIC!!

“Lovable Hosts!”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

My partner (a local fisherman) and I are regular visitors and love being in the company of lovable hosts Enza & Rafaele. Their friendly hospitality make it a comfortable dining experience for locals and visitors alike. We particularly enjoy the seafood dishes and the meat lasagna. The antipasti on the occasional set-menu is always a treat full of tasty surprises. We will be back again & again

“Restaurant Italia - Ferragudo”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

We live in Ferragudo and consider ourselves very fortunate have a restaurant in our village serving such high quality, authentic Italian food. My sister is married to an Italian and has lived in Italy for more than 40 years - so I know what good Italian food is. And it exists right here in Ferragudo.

Reviewed October 25, 2012

the italia restaurant in Ferragudo provides a really great dining experience. The prices are very good and the quality of the food is first class. The attention to detail, provided by Enza and Miguel and the friendly manner from all the staff, makes this a really enjoyable experience. All the food was very tasty and beautifully presented. Check it out for yourself.....www.ferragudo-italia-restaurant.com. Thank you Enza for a lovely evening x x x x

“Great Italian food”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

This restaurant must be the best Italian restaurant I have been to outside Italy.
Fantastic lasagne, spaghetti and pizza as well. Friendly and serviceminded staff.
We didn't taste the speciality - meat on a stone - but it looks delicious.
