Add one of the city’s most beautiful panoramic views to the area’s best pizzas and the result has to be a success story. That’s exactly what happened with Casa D’Ora, located on the Marginal Road, where Italian-born Maria Paola Porru has opened a restaurant and a pizzeria. The only thing the two have in common is being Italian – the upstairs pizzeria is a lot more relaxed than the more formal restaurant. There are plenty of Italian specialities to enjoy, from the popular diavola (devil) pizza to the ossobuco alla milanese. The restaurant also offers an incredible view of the Douro river, ideal for a romantic evening.
Time Out tips:
– Don’t be overwhelmed by choice. You can order different toppings for each half of your pizza.
– Besides pizzas, the rotolo di spinaci is a best-seller.
– Pretend like you’re in Italy, and be Italian: drink one of their typical beverages.
