Italian restaurants in Portugal are a dime a dozen nowadays. But few achieve the degree of authenticity of this little place in the Madragoa neighbourhood. Here the food is made by the hands of Turin native Chiara Ferro. Simple, no-nonsense fare arrives in small doses that are ideal for sharing. The carne crua all’albese (chopped raw beef, prepared with lemon, olive oil, garlic and anchovy), the eggy fritatta and the scaloppine al Marsala (scallops in a sauce made with the eponymous Italian dessert wine) are among our favourites.
