We always go here a couple times each year. Although this is a pizzeria by reputation, I would have to stay their Picadinho is one of the best on the island. The portions are huge, we asked for 2 large meals and rather than just take the extra money the waiter actually advised us to go regular or share a... More

Very busy place, with very efficient staff. Great pizzas, only tackle the large pizza if you are starving or going to share. The normal size is big enough! Great coffee too all at a reasonable price . Highly recommend.

I had an omelette and chips, my partner a margarita pizza. Both were tasty and fresh, with good portion sizes. Service was friendly and the restaurant had a nice atmosphere. Given the location and view this place is great value.

This is beyond doubt the best pizza/lasagne restaurant I have ever eaten in. An informal setting overlooking the sea with lovely views and NO passing traffic noise, just the sound of the waves crashing into the rocks. Used by the locals, the food and service is excellent. Very friendly and attentive staff . The meals are very competitively priced and... More

One of our favourite restaurants in Funchal. Good position overlooking the sea, eat inside or out. Informal but comfortable. Fabulous range of pizzas but the full variety of fish and meat dishes as well. Exceptionally good value. Great service. Delicious desserts. Recommend.

The best tomato soup ever is served at Papa Manuel in Lido area close to Funchal. Other dishes are also good with moderate prices eventough this restaurant is located on sea level. The place is very popular among the local people. I can warmly recommend this place.

The worst type of pseudo italian cuisine. Asked specifially for al dente pasta - not happened, arrived seriously overcooked. Pizza chilli had about 1 kg of minced meat on top, just disgusting. Pasta with shrimps, I do not know what they've done to them but tasted like paper towel. Both medium portions - HUGE. We just went there because of... More

Located in a tourist area with very nice gardens and parks around, has a fantastic view of the ocean. Their outdoor seating is quite pleasant. Turning the best part, the pizzas are the best on the island, plus pizzas have pasta, regional dishes of fish and meat as the "espetada regional". The service is fast and friendly employees always ready to do whatever it takes, even to clarify facts about the island.
