Description: Come to GIANIA for a thin-crust wood-fired pizza made from scratch with the freshest local ingredients. The pizza base and the tomato sauce are made with the highest quality olive oil. Our repeat customers tell us that it is wonderful to enjoy a little piece of Italy in the lovely setting of the Algarve. Come see it for yourself- a lovely outdoor seating area where you can indulge in pizza, beer, sangria and wine. You may prefer an air conditioned inside space with some very lively music. Come for Pizzas, Pastas, Italian desserts and wonderful Alentejo wines! Our best selling house Pizza is topped with fresh peppery rocket salad leaves on a bed of mozzarella & cherry tomatoes. We also serve different types of Pastas, and not to mention, our home made Tiramisu and Pannacota for dessert. GIANIA is located in Albufeira near the bullring. It is opposite the old globe(water fountain) round about. There is parking at the back of the restaurant. Come give GIANIA a try and experience it first-hand, Thank you.

“Very good Indian, highly recommended.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2013

We noticed the new Giania restaurant, when we were out on our trip to Albufeira and as a new restaurant, we thought we would give it a go.
The small menu is simple, a few starters and the main dishes include, chicken, lamb, king prawn or veg. curry or the same as biryani dishes. We all started with poppadoms and dips. They came with mango chutney and a spicy chilli dip and do ask for yoghurt dips as well if you wish, they are only too happy to oblige.
For the main course, I chose a chicken curry with veg. pilau and naan bread. My friends had lamb and chicken biryani. When it arrived the main comment was that the dishes were a tad dry with little sauce, but it soon transpired that unlike the regular restaurant curries, these are freshly cooked and not made with a standard base sauce. The flavours were great with a real home made taste. I have never had such a tasty and authentic curry before, in any Indian restaurant. We were all pleasantly surprised. There was a good amount of food and very well priced. We will be going again next time, for sure.
Highly recommended
