We were welcomed and we stayed late and the staff could not have been kinder. The welcoming glass of light white port was very nice. ....good bread and olive oil, however I found the black squid ink pasta with seafood to have almost no flavor...a little very fresh parsley, too little of everything else. The pasta itself was well made....same... More

We enjoyed the experience at La Ricotta. Great service, nice setting and good food. In particular, octopus and duck risotto were great. Cod entree was the least favorite.

We hadn't booked as we were visiting for a short period. I found the restaurant via trip advisor and we weren't disappointed. We got the last table and although it was by the door were very satisfied. The service was good, we heard nearly five languages spoken by the staff. The menu is a brilliant mix of Portuguese and Italian.... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant to my husband and me. We were very favorably impressed. We enjoyed a reasonably priced Fixed Price menu that included a variety of smallish plates and wines that were all delicious and satisfying. Our fun and fabulous server, Lucia, was almost as enjoyable as our meal. We heartily recommend this warm and friendly restaurant with... More

We have the dinner in rainy day ! We expected less people but the restaurant was full booked ! Luckily we got a good chance ! Tasting the juicy steak and a nice prawn risotto ! Grilled Octopus was one of the best choice!

Lovely small resturant just a short walk from the Intercontinental Hotel. They recommended the resturant and I see they have done this before. Not too dressy which is nice when you live from a carry on. It may not be a place for young children as it is quiet but there is a friendly somewhat casual atmosphere. It is a... More

This small restaurant offered a great varied menu which the attentive staff went to great lengths to explain. One of the best restaurants we have eaten in, cannot praise the standard of service. A good tip is to ensure you book as it is very popular

I asked the attentive waiter what were the reccommended plates and he told me the octopus was very good. And it was! Delightful. The octupus parts came on top of a genreou cube of spinach with herbs, accompanied by potatoes and small tomatoes. I followed his suggestion for wines. I very strongly reccomend this place for those who want typical... More

Small restaurant not far from Intercontinental hotel where we were staying. Varied menu. Really good food, nice wine and port. Good service. You need to book as very popular.
