We met a gorgeous old English man who recommended this place. We had an absolutely delightful meal garlic shrimp, smoked ham with melon followed by cannelloni and spaghetti putanesca. Very well cooked beautiful presentation. Attentive service. Very good value. Don t hesitate.

Rua Imperatriz Dona Amelia is a bit of a restaurant row. A number of local restaurants, an Indian, Turkish and two "pubs". Of those we tried, this was by far our favourite. We are surprised, therefore, that it languishes in the 200+ region of Funchal...More

This restaurant is frequently fully occupied. Might be as well to book. It is not expensive but has a good menu and the food is very well presented which is not always the case in Madeira.

This is a pleasant family run Italian restaurant with the usual Madeiran favourites and an extensive selection of Italian meat, fish, pasta and pizza. The staff are very friendly and helpful: our waiter found us a very nice red wine from alentajo 'in the fridge'...More

It was with some trepidation, after reading several reviews concerning the friendliness of the staff and poor or slow service, that we booked a table for the penultimate meal of our week long break. Although we have been eating here, off and on, for some...More

Visited this restaurant 3 times in the week we stayed in Madeira. So close to the Pestana Carlton Park Hotel (Casino). Food and service very good, We would go again if in the area. Great value compared to the Hotel.

I think the rear door is an access from the hotel behind. Don't think Bernini has any more rooms. Just book! And enjoy the fireworks and the fabulous lights that are all over Funchal with grottoes and choirs. It's magical... More
