This is the place to go to see just how gifted a Portuguese grandmother can be when it comes to her cooking skills. Big portions, big flavors, and big fun for groups await in this cozy top-ranked tasca in Torres Novas. The pica-pau dish was incredibly tender and juicy, the clams were on point, and the jar of house wine complimented the meal exceptionally well. Save room for dessert, because all the sweet goodness is made in house. The atmosphere is relaxed and traditional: the wooden tables give a rustic feel to the old-school interior, and the staff treats you like family. Feel free to imagine you’re sitting at the kid’s table if you’re with a group. Chances are the staff will want to join in the fun.
