Me and the missus visit, since a couple of years, Albufeira at least once a year, from the first time we had a click with owners and staff, they serve good food with a smile. Just good as it should be, enjoy.

Italian restaurant in the Old Town. Excellent and friendly service, nice quiet atmosphere, Good food and wine, varied choice of food. I enjoyed the pizza and Tiramisu, they also do a range of pasta, seafood and steaks. Great desserts.

Had a lovely steak on the stone here which I could highly recommend. Friendly, attentive staff and great location just across the road from Sherry's - the best bar in Albufeira.

We had the Capri bruschetta and the mushroom... More
