Pizza Pazza

Name of establishment

Pizza Pazza, Pedralva

Style and ambience

As laid back as you’d expect for this part of the western Algarve, especially as it’s housed in the restored eco-village of Pedralva.

There is a cosy inside seating area, where you can end up sat next to local people, surfers, other holidaymakers or business people down from Lisbon. They also have an upstairs outside terrace with more seating for you to enjoy the setting sun and magnificent views.

What to eat?

Pizza, of course. The menu has some fantastically named pizzas including the ‘Cannibal’ or ‘Jungle’ and even a matching ‘Tarzan’ and ‘Tarzan and Jane’ combo; and an amusing translation of house salad as “salad in the way of the house.” There is a wide choice of pizza toppings but only three pasta choices for non-pizza lovers.

I ordered a Tropical Pizza complete with pineapple - and banana! Dave had a seafood pizza covered in anchovies and both came out piping hot and full of topping. Dave’s pizza was so big it overlapped his dinner plate.

One of our friends ordered the seafood pasta - which was freshly cooked and almost too hot to eat.

Start with simple garlic and herb bread, and finish (if you have room) with tiramisu.

What to drink?

The wine choice is simple - red or white in a jug!

Why do you like it?

The staff are great - friendly and amusing - and obviously proud of their little gem to which people travel far and wide to visit.

Surrounded by friendly people, eating good simple food which is well-cooked and well presented, you’ll leave full and happy!

Insider knowledge

You’ll often be advised to book a table, especially in the main summer season. It’s hard to tell when the resort is busy (guests are often out and about during the day) but the restaurant’s fame spreads beyond Pedralva, and by 8.30 can be full.

They don’t accept bank cards - it’s cash only for payment.


Clearly signposted right in the centre of the small village of Pedralva, which is located off the Sagres to Aljezur road (N268).


Our meal for four - including a jug of house wine, starter bread, main courses and three desserts - cost €58.

Opening times

From June to September, Tuesday to Saturday at 6pm, and on Sundays they open at 1pm. They didn’t seem to have a published closing time - and knowing the laid back style of the venue it would probably be open until the last person was full up!

From October to May, they are only open Thursday to Sunday.
