Faro’s new restaurant promises an unmatched gastronomic symphony where “audacity and madness come together”
“There is a huge gap in Italian cuisine, especially in the Algarve,” says chef Diogo Martins, adding that the goal of the new restaurant is to offer a gastronomic experience based on a “twist of national products and 100% Italian products in a perfect combination of cultures.
“We want to offer a space that is unpretentious and informal so that everyone who visits us feels at home,” he added.
A home bar and 40-seat dining room offer guests the choice of enjoying a cocktail at the bar, such as a Millionnaire #4 or an Expresso Martini, or having dinner.
With ingredients from the Algarve and imported from Italy, several classic Italian dishes appear on the dinner menu, including pumpkin risotto with peach and pesto (€21), turbot with barley, capers, and radish (€23), Rossini-style pork loin with foie gras and black truffle (€45), and panna cotta with peach, passion fruit and ginger (€6). There is a wide variety of wines to pair with each dish, including some of Portugal’s best.
The Zebra restaurant is open between Monday to Saturday, from 6pm and 2am.
