Having been to AlDente many times before we kind of knew what to expect, and not much had changed. Decent food at a decent price but relatively slow service. Waiters are all friendly. It's clean and tidy. Not too much atmosphere though. Would go back

Had lunch here and it was perfect for our family. Staff took a little while to warm up but we're lovely in the end. Food was delicious. Would happily visit again

This restaurant is within a 10 minute walk of where we were staying in the Pestana Alvor South Beach Hotel. We had starters, steak and pasta, beer and wine. Very reasonably priced. Food very tasty.

Great Alvor restaurant. Best carbonara ever had and pizzas and breads fantastic too. Good value. Short walk into main part of town.
