Fantastic restaurant in beautiful setting on the Marina. We were a group a of 13 with 5 children and we all had a fantastic evening. Food was excellent with large portions! Great choice of wines. The service was very good and attentive. There was plenty of choice for the children and they were happy. A great restaurant.

Came to this restaurant after it had been recommended. There was a mix up when we ordered the drinks, with the waiter thinking I had ordered my son a banana split when he wanted a banana smoothie. When the banana split came, it became apparent what had happened. I took responsibility (despite the fact that it was clear we were... More

Absolutely amazing restaurant. We have visited twice now and each time the service has been outstanding, the food absolutely first class and nothing is too much trouble! We came in with a hen party of 13 and the food all came out together and they could not do enough for us. Thank you so much and we will be back!!!

Service completely different, even thou we were still dressed smartly as before. The risotto came with white flaky soft fish. Spoke to head waiter immediately he wouldn't accept what we said even when we showed him... More

Really lovely Italian. Tried lasagne, pizza, chicken and spaghetti and carbonara all delicious. Prices as you would expect for location on Marina but quality of food worth it. Great service and nice staff too.

We visited Vilamoura recently and just had to eat in Il Lamparo. So glad we did as it is still the best. We did try others but returned to Lamapro a 2nd time during our visit. The food is brilliant and the service is the best you'll get anywhere. The staff are always friendly and helpful. Can't recommend this restaurant... More
