Lisbon, Portugal: Be Adventurous And Travel To Casanova For A Good Meal

Good, reasonably priced Italian food with a large terrace overlooking the river, we enjoyed our meal very much. The dining room was large with seating for 60-70 people (more on the deck) at the long tables and there is a huge glass wall overlooking the river. The main and pizza kitchens are also glass enclosed so you can see your food being prepared if you so wish. The service was impeccable in this casual setting with typical Portuguese family-style long tables. We decided to stay inside as it was just a tad chilly out on the deck.
Outside of Italy, it is difficult, if not impossible, to find properly made spaghetti carbonara, but Casanova got it right! We started our meal with the Focaccia (€4), baked pizza dough with olive oil and rosemary, and a liter of both the House Red Wine (€5.50) and House Sparkling Water (€1). I ordered the Carbonara (€9.50), penne in this case instead of spaghetti, coming in a rich, tasty sauce with plenty of bacon and egg yolk. The portion was not huge, but there was plenty to fill me up. My wife got the Pizza Boscaiola (€12), a white pizza with smoked cheese and fresh mushrooms. More crispy than the soft-crusted Neapolitan we are used to, it was the right size and thickness as well as being quite tasty. My wife's only complaint was that she thought there could be both more cheese and mushrooms.

We paid €32 for our meal, a relative bargain compared to other European countries with the exception of Italy of course, making this a nice break from the limited menu options at many traditional Portuguese restaurants and a decent TravelValue.
