Fierabella - Pizzeria | Ristorante

Reviewed By HelloiseEliot

We started off by ordering, as always, garlic bread. I wasn't too pleased because the garlic was burnt and left an aftertaste in my mouth I wasn't quite happy to have. The dough was delicious though! Then in came the pizza my friend ordered and my tortellini... absolutely delicious. On both counts! Anything al forno seems to be absolute yum in that place!Off to the desserts... hit and miss here. My tiramisu was a bit strange, I couldn't taste mascarpone, tasted more of sweetened condensed milk more than anything, so I don't know what went wrong there. My friend got the passion fruit tart and it was deliciously refreshing, strongly recommended.The ambiance was very nice and the staff were extremely friendly.Overall: will go back for more!

Massa9va

The massa9va is one of the trendiest restaurants in Santa Maria da Feira. The kitchen is original and based on excellent products, always fresh, a fusion of Italian cuisine with our traditional and international flavors.

I have been 3 or 4 times to this restaurant and my feeling was always quite positive. The food is very good, the service is reliable and fast, and not expensive.In a nutshell, a safe choice if you are looking for a restaurant at last minute.

Praceta

Reviewed By aguyfromitaly

Good but expensive Italian restaurant and quite expensive (for Portuguese standards). Food was nice, expressly cooked though my steak was ultimately too salty but amazingly tender and juicy.Nice environment after all; it's very intimate in most of the decor but has a front row kitchen (which dish washing and general preparation noise unfortunately is spread in the dining area). Good service, and interesting selection of wines.

Espaço sem muito luxo, no entanto, agradável. A simpatia dos funcionários é excelente, sempre prontos a ajudar. As pizzas são bem grandes e a massa é de boa qualidade, o recheio é que poderia ser mais abundante.

Casa Mia

Reviewed By HelloiseEliot

In comparison to several other italian restaurants in town, Casa Mia needs to improve a LOT. Both my cousin and myself ordered food that required some time in the oven (she ordered veggie lasagna and I ordered raviolli), and food came to us absolutely frozen in the middle, like it had just left the freezer and spent a little bit of time in the oven for colour. It's not a bad restaurant and the menus have a lot of options - too many if you ask me - but they need to focus on improving food quality instead of focusing on offering 100 different meals. Perhaps reducing the number of courses and making the remaining ones top notch could work!Inexpensive and ok, just not up to par in terms of italian standards.

Foi por acaso que entrámos neste restaurante para um almoço ràpido e a surpresa começa logo que entramos com uma decoração original a fazer lembrar os tempos medievais com madeira rude e pedra.O atendimento foi sempre muito bom ao longo do almoço, escolhemos uma sopa de legumes, muito "caseira" e de seguida veio jardineira de vitela, um dos pratos do dia e estava excelente!!Terminámos com um ananás laminado e dois cafés e o preço foi uma agradável surpresa, cerca de €13,50.Aconselho a fazerem mais publicidade no exterior.

Pizzaria Bella Donna

Reviewed By Helder_Fernandes

this is not a posh italian restaurant, is more a local restaurant located on the ground floor of a residential building.Runned by a couple, he is the chef and his wife the waiter, also with some employees, the service are efficient and decent in general. The food is the great, cooked at the time, every disches I tried were very good. One of my favorites is the shrimp gratin. But in general pastas and pizzas are good too.Prices are reasonable, me, my wife and daughter, ordering starters, desserts, mains and drinks is around 12€/each. can be less if you are looking for a cheaper option, just need to pay attention when it comes to order.This is a low profile restaurant I like to visit once in while with my family and friends as well.

Mr. Mimos Pizza

Reviewed By cutie212

My boyfriend and I adore Mr. Mimos Pizza! When we visited from Switzerland a few weeks ago our local friends made sure to take us there. What a delight! Being half Italians we know how authentic Italian pizze taste and we can say for sure: we loved the crispy dough, the fresh ingredients and the exotic combos such as banana and bacon! Also; the atmosphere was cozy and chill. We'll come back!

I've been there a few times already (more than 10) and the quality of the food will not let you down. It's a pretty traditional Italian restaurant offering pizza and pasta but also other Portuguese cuisine dishes. It's been recently re-decorated. Go for the curry pizza (pizza Gallo) for something different.Thank you so much for your coment!We are always ready to welcome you.
