Villa Nova restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside, as the restaurant of the Villa Nova apartment complex, but don't let it's looks fool you! Lurking beside the complex pool you expect it to be serving up fast food or the average "Portuguese" fare that a lot of restaurants are guilty of, but don't be fooled! Annibal and his team will serve up some of the best, freshest fish and meat you will get in the area. The Catch of the Day is presented at your table, but there's also an amazing array of steak, chicken and duck dishes, so something for everyone. As well as this, there is a comprehensive children's menu, and staff are excellent with children, entertaining and engaging them, and will happily provide any meal in a child sized portion if your child wants it. A more friendly and warm hearted restaurant you will struggle to find in the area.
It also serves an excellent lunch at a reasonable price and is happy for you to enjoy their pool during the day.
Favorite Dish: The steak portuguese style is still the best I have ever eaten, and it's something I have eaten all over the algarve!
Very simple place...with italian colours gently spread allover...
friendly prices to a extremely tastfull food!!! cant´be true...but it is!!!
Some other places i visited in carvoeiro had deep pan pizza wich i didnt like because is is not the real thing...
But the pizza in california is what i had in my last holidays in italy!
On high season allways crowded...
After your stroll along the beach, make time to visit one of the many restaurants here. We plonked ourselves down in the Bella Italia, and settled for one of their delicious Sundaes. They have a good variety, and I settled for the Chocolate and Strawberry Sundae. Mmmmm, wonderful!
The cost of each is around 5 Euros.
