We had pizza at Giania's which was quite thin and crispy. The waiter was very polite and friendly. We would definitely recommend this place as it was not too crowded and reasonably priced.

Got the kids a pepperoni pizza to take away last night and they thoroughly enjoyed it. The size of the pizza was enough for them and the price was great. Staff were friendly. Would definitely visit again and recommend to others to try.

Come to GIANIA for a thin-crust wood-fired pizza made from scratch with the freshest local ingredients. The pizza base and the tomato sauce are made with the highest quality olive oil. Our repeat customers tell us that it is wonderful to enjoy a little piece of Italy in the lovely setting of the Algarve. Come see it for yourself- a lovely outdoor seating area where you can indulge in pizza, beer, sangria and wine. You may prefer an air conditioned inside space with some very lively music. Come for Pizzas, Pastas, Italian desserts and wonderful Alentejo wines! Our best selling house Pizza is topped with fresh peppery rocket salad leaves on a bed of mozzarella & cherry tomatoes. We also serve different types of Pastas, and not to mention, our home made Tiramisu and Pannacota for dessert. GIANIA is located in Albufeira near the bullring. It is opposite the old globe(water fountain) round about. There is parking at the back of the restaurant. Come give GIANIA a try and experience it first-hand, Thank you.
