This much-loved Italian eatery is one of Lisbon's best-known restaurants, and has been serving tasty pasta dishes since the 1980s. Owner Maria Paola has created a wonderful retreat for lovers of Mediterranean cooking, and interior designer Manuel Graça Dias has captured the occasion with her simple vanilla and mint colour scheme and mood lighting. Menu selections include a wide variety of Italian classics, with dishes created using homemade pasta. They're all here all here, the spaghetti, ravioli, tagliatelle, linguini and some truly mouth-watering pizzas. If you fancy something a little more Portuguese, Casanostra also has several succulent grilled meat options. Wines listed include some noted Italian labels. Favourite dessert choices are the Sicilian-style tiramisu and the refreshing sorbets. Reservations recommended.
