Sale e Dolce al Forno

Sale e Dolce al Forno Restaurant offers a delightful fusion of Italian and modern European cuisine. Situated in the heart of Braga’s historic city centre, on the fringes of Sao Paulo square, it is open six days a week, from Monday to Saturday for lunch, and from Tuesday to Saturday for dinner.

Sale e Dolce al Forno Restaurant offers a welcoming atmosphere that is typically Portugal, but with a quirky, unique Italian twist. It is informal and very friendly and is a particular favourite for families with children.

The menu is full of mouth-watering favourites from Portugal and Italy. Choose a traditional pizza, freshly cooked in the wood-fired oven, or a traditional knuckle of roast pork, slow cooked in rosemary and thyme.

As with many restaurants in the local area, fish also features heavily on the menu, thanks to Braga’s proximity to the waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Sweet and sour cod is a particular favourite, and one that actually sees diners returning time and again to sample. For pasta lovers, Sale e Dolce al Forno Restaurant offers a tasty selection of fresh and dried pastas with a variety of rich and fragrant Italian sauces.

The restaurant provides the perfect combination of affordability and quality. As a result, it is usually full for both lunch and dinner, therefore booking is highly advisable, particularly as the dining room has capacity for just 52 diners.

A recent twist to add to the restaurant’s offering is the opening of the Restaurant Nikko, side by side in the Sale e Dolce’s space, providing diners with the added option of tasting some exquisite Japanese flavours with their meal. This really is fusion, indeed!
A takeaway service is available, mostly used for ordering pizzas from the wood-fired oven, but with the friendly and welcoming staff, well-chosen and affordable wine list, and reasonable prices, it is well worth choosing to eat in at the Sale e Dolce al Forne Restaurant for a real treat to your taste buds and a full experience during your stay in Braga, Portugal.

Average price per head is 20 Euros, making this a popular choice with visitors, locals, businesspeople, couples and family groups alike. Opening hours are 12.30 to 3pm for lunch and 8pm to midnight for dinner. All major credit cards accepted.
