Without a doubt, the best meal we had in Portugal. The attention to detail was outstanding. Every dish was delicious and cooked to perfection. The young couple that owns it is lovely, hardworking, and truly wonderful people. Get the burrata. It is outstanding. As many others have said, this is a restaurant that actually deserves 5+ stars. We loved everything about it. We can't wait to return. It's a gem.

I am a bit ashamed to say that It is only after having dinner at “A Despensa” that I fully realized what a five-star review should be about. Like certainly many people here, I have been throwing 5 stars right and left but this place showed me what good Italian food is all about. Say no to restaurant review inflation and enjoy a true 5-star evening here!

This was one of the best dining experiences I had in Portugal! Elsa, the proprietor and our host, was incredibly thoughtful and attentive. The arrabbiata had the perfect amount of heat and the wine was superb. I'll absolutely return next time I'm in Porto and have already recommended A Despense to several friends.
