We were a large group and the service was perfect. Congrats to the lady who was in charge. Very assertive and always concerned. The food was excellent, from the pizzas, to the pasta and the filetos!

Not giving 5 stars just because the price is a bit high, not much, but could be a "1 star" less... Food is good, nice pizzas and Italian food in general and there's a vast choice too! Waiters are very friendly, mainly a lady called "Lena". Environment is very good, you can have a nice lunch / dinner looking at... More

We stopped here for lunch after shopping in the Vasco da Gama shopping complex. Strolling in the sun we spotted the diners on the outside terrace so we chose to join them. A good decision. The set meal for less than 10 euro was good value considering the location. We both selected pizza and were not disappointed. Good food in... More

The service was nice but not too much dedicated but it was really hot so it might have influenced also the staff. The food was really good, I was very surprised. The rucula soup was very good and fillet mignon with parsley leaves and garlic was absolutely great!!!

Whenever I'm staying in Oriente I love the pizzas at this place. Prices are reasonable. Service is relatively good. Check it out for some nice Italian cuisine.

Some very mixed reviews of this place but all I can say is we had a lovely lunch sitting in the sun with great views, served promptly by very nice staff. So overall we had a very pleasant experience.

The place is nice with view over the river. The calzone and pizza are ok but the pasta dishes arent fresh. I ate ravioli with pesto and it was really bad. Afterwards i got a bit nauseous so will definitly not be back and dont advice it. The service is average.

Italian....ish. The menu was Italian but you wouldn't get everything they served in Italy! A starter of oven baked provolone was just that: with no bread to dip in it and not obviously indicated on the menu for sharing. It was also possible to have pasta with a choice of sauce but it was not expected that the cannelloni was... More

This is an italian restaurant with a wonderful view in Parque das Nações. I recommend you to go on a sunny day for lunch or early dinner, so you can enjoy the sunset. Very good price. Try the red fruits sangria.

Staying in Parque das Nacoes

Neighbourhood Profile
Parque das Nacoes
This neighborhood was built up at the end of the 1990s mostly because of the Expo '98. The pavilions and structures that once were the home of all the Expo's attractions and exhibits are still culturally and artistically significant. In Parque das Nações you'll explore conference and concert pavilions, a shopping center, trendy restaurants and an enjoyable cable car ride you can't miss out on. On top of this, the amazing Lisbon Oceanarium (one of the most spectacular things you'll ever see in the city) will take your breath away: its respect and will to preserve natural wildlife is uncanny. Easily accessible by metro, bus or taxi from the city center, Parque das Nações is highly recommended for anyone who'll spend more than 3 days in the Portuguese capital.
