LUNCH OR DINNER AT MENSA
Mensa in Italian means “canteen” and can also mean a big welcome table. It is a fair translation of our concept of simple and refined Italian cuisine. At Mensa, traditional Italian cuisine is combined with powerful Portuguese flavors, as guests are transported back in time to old childhood memories of coveted home-cooked dishes with each bite taken. The cosy, bright, and chic dining room is animated with guests' laughter, chatter, and clinking glasses, as Mensa has become a home away from home for avid lovers, and critics, of Italian cuisine.
