Mavala Osteria Italiana
Ranked #3 of 402 Restaurants in Faro
Certificate of Excellence
Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 April 2018 via mobile

Lovely rustic atmosphere and design, that feels very lovely. Well lit and great for families. The menu is limited but all the options sound appetising. The service was amazing and our particular waiter was very friendly, helping out with some customised dishes for my vegan mother. He was very chatty and helped us work out what activities to do in Faro after our meal. All the food looked and tasted brilliantly and everyone was impressed and satisfied with their dishes. Even the kids enjoyed their lasagna which was recommended to us by the waiter for children. I highly recommend this restaurant for everyone.

Thank Dana D

We had the lamb liver, pasta with seafood, asparagus tartar, and mozzarella ball, and they were all excellent!

This small Italian restaurant in Faro is just simply great! the food was 10/10, really tasty and authentic, our waiter was warmhearted, most kind and helpful and the friendly chef came by as well to ask how we liked the dishes. We had a brilliant pasta and a daily offer and both were so good! Make sure to try the tiramisu of the house

I went with my boyfriend for a romantic dinner and it was amazing! It feels like you're having dinner in the living room of an Italian chef, very comforting and inviting! The food was great, you could definitely tell that the chef cooks with passion and the prices are fair. Totally recommend going here if you are looking for real Italian food!

Would like to see more vegetarian and low carb options. Besides this the food was very tasty and the atmosphere was pleasant.
