This is very much a local restaurant frequented by Cascais families. Think of it as a small Italian trattoria. (no, its not Jamie Olivers Italian, or a one star Michelin)The chef is an Italian lady who uses quality ingredients. They also have a dedicated fresh oven baked pizza maker. It's not fancy, but it is cosy. Its more like home cooked food and price wise very reasonable. The pizzas are excellent with the 4 cheeses and rucola/presunto being my favourites. Pasta dishes are also very good. Worth asking what pasta specials are. Sometimes they have vongole (clams) that is delicious. They also have meat dishes.
For me their star dish (a starter) is their buratta (creamier mozzarella) cheese with genuine Parma ham. Both imported from Itay. Runs out fast though.
Deserts are not their strength, though they do have a good "pudin" (type of flan).
Wines are good value, although I would prefer some more premium red ones on their list.
Their tap beer is the tasty Estrella from Barcelona.
They offer take away service which is useful when you have hungry boys at home. You can take away anything on their menu. Have a covered terrace, separated from the main dinning which will allow smokers.
Location is strange just beside a small petrol station. Parking sometimes needs to be found a block away.
This has been one of the most popular local family restaurants in Cascais for many years now. Highly recommended.

Service okay but food was nothing to write home about. Puddings are all frozen and ready made. Decor was very old fashioned. Good mediocre.

Pasta was average, no better than could have cooked at home. Pizza was yummy that someone on our table had, I should have ordered this. Only here for 2 weeks won't be rushing back, good for takeaway pizzas and if you are looking for a cheap meal.

Great service, tasty affordable food
Consistently excellent over the years and has strong local clientele.

Great feel good home comfort food. Italian meet Portuguese cuisine (2 of my favourite kitchens)
Fabulous pizza, spaghetti vongole or with shrimps to die for!!
DON'T be discouraged by the bizarre location. A great delight awaits!!!
Little Italy in Cascais.!
