Belcanto lived up to all of its good press with a superb "Lisbon" menu and Portuguese wine pairing. The creative tales on traditional Portuguese dishes will be enhanced if you're already familiar with the classics of the cuisine, so doing some homework ahead of time...More

I would call ahead just to be sure. Whatever you choose is likely to be pretty good anyway. Ask for the Chef's table.

Jose Avillez looks at haute cuisine as a form of expression. At the Belcanto he shares his inspirations, emotions and concerns through his culinary representations and illusions. Each dish tells a story and sets out to stir the emotions of those willing to try it."
