Hubby and I dropped in for a quick late evening meal here. We both had the vegetarian pizza without cheese. The pizza was lovely, full of toppings and beautiful garlicky tomato sauce. The house red was also very good. Definitely recommend.

We stopped by Faro on the way to the airport. Ended up having an amazing 3-course lunch at L’Osteria. Service was very friendly and the calzone was the best i’ve had. And don’t miss out on their desserts 😉.

Good pizza, good pasta, good service, but nothing spectacular or memorable. Am coming to the opinion that Lisbon may be the only “foodie” destination in Portugal.
